to get more members to post on JM than on facebook? I miss our active board...We were one of the most active on the top 50 for months, and now we aren't even active enough to bother signing up...I've stopped posting in the facebook group and will now only post on JM...I wish others would do the same

I dunno how to get people back either. We were rocking it and now it's dead I want to see all the babies who were expected and hear how they are doing. That Facebook group really kills things. August PR doesn't have one and I lurk on their board just because it is crazy busy. We should lure them with chocolate!!

I agree--it's kind of a bummer that it's so slow over here now when it's so active over on the Facebook group. I wish JM had an iPhone app, I think that would make a huge difference in participation here.

The PR from when I had Jim basically died out after a big group left to go to some other site (not sure why they left, but they did). It's a bummer because I'd love to chat with folks about starting kindergarten in the fall, but there's like 2 people posting there nowadays--in fact it merged with another PR that also had very little participation. I think it's fairly common for folks to drift away over time, but in our case I think it's more because Facebook is just so much more convenient.

I didn't like when the facebook group first started, and I didn't post in there for a long time...eventually I gave in since everyone was posting....I hate it! I think it's killing JM...This is my first time in a playroom after trying to get pregnant for so long, and it just sucks that not many even post here ...Beth my son just started kindergarten this year if you have any questions! it's such an exciting time...Jack loves it!!!

I am so excited for Jim to start K, I'm not even remotely nervous about how he'll do. I was 6 months ago, but he's come a long way emotionally since then and now I think he'll be fine, I think he's totally ready to learn. Our big thing now is picking the right school in our district, Seattle is big and there are lots of choices and our neighborhood school is only so-so, so we're trying to get into some of the magnet programs instead. We turned in our paperwork today so we'll see what happens when they do the lottery for the magnet programs, I think we find out in April or May if we got into any of our requested schools.

I really think the Facebook group is why it's slow here--lots of moms have said that they can't get on JM as easily as they can get on Facebook. Kind of a bummer.

I'm not on the FB group but the reason I don't post here very much is because it's so complicated from my phone! If JM had an iphone app, I'd be on here ALL THE TIME. I just rarely get my laptop open anymore and don't have the patience to login and post from my phone.

Honestly, for me it's because I get notifications to my e-mail anytime someone posts in the FB group, so it reminds me to stay active. Also, I can post from my phone when I'm thinking about it instead of forgetting before I manage to get to a computer. It does suck, but it's just about the convenience of the FB page for most people.

I used to be on the FB group. I am no longer in it at all so this is the only place to post for me. I am sad because with recent events it would be nice to see if anyone else is having medical troubles with their little ones. I agree that if there was an app for JM a lot more people would come here.

For me it has been the convenience factor but I have been trying to come back over here more often. I feel more comfortable here and at home.

FYI, you can set it up to get e-mails when people post to this site too. At the top of the list of threads there's a link that says "Forum Tools"--click on that and then click on "Subscribe to this forum" and you can choose Daily or Weekly notifications. It's not as instant as Facebook notifications but at least it reminds folks to come over once a day, KWIM?
