PR merger
 
The PR is so slow at this point, that we are considering a merger. Kristen and I have really tried to get things back up to speed here, but it's just not happening. I just got a PM from one of our members asking us to consider merging it again. Thoughts?

I believe we should. I am on her and FB and the last time we did the vote majority was the ones who are only on FB. I seriously believe we should. The other PR group are really friendly folks too. Please don't get me wrong I love people here that are not on fb. But it is not fair to them to not be able to talk to the other ladies who never travel here at all.

I really hoped we could get things back up to speed, but it's just not happening. I really wanted to avoid a merger. I'm not even sure the merged forum is very active.

Sadly, I think JM as a whole is very inactive. I'm dipping my toes in the TTC forum since we're TTC again and it's dead there, too. I remember when TTC Sean I could barely keep up in there and spent most of my time in TTCAL and TTC#1. Now the TTC forum is slower than those subforums were! JM really needs an app and not just Forum Runner. I digress. I'm sad at the idea of a merger but I think it makes sense.

I'll do whatever you all want. :) I don't think there is hope for this board.

Re: PR merger
 
If it's slow everywhere, I'm not sure a merger will even help. It's up to all of you. Do we need a poll?

bostoncreampie October 18th, 2013 08:29 PM

Re: PR merger
 
I think we need a poll, yes. And keep it up for a good amount of time so everyone has a chance to see it.

Okay, I made a very basic poll. Yes or no response, and it's open indefinitely.

Re: PR merger
 
The merged PR might be kinda slow, also. What do you think?

Zukin October 19th, 2013 03:49 AM

Re: PR merger
 
They've been really active, it's just I think with most bdays and holidays a brewing it's been slow I noticed

Zukin October 19th, 2013 06:24 AM

Re: PR merger
 
I just relooked in there, they're active as of yesterday. So I think it'll be good for us, but who knows. I just don't really think it's fair for the ones that always post and noone else from the org. PR does.

The merged playroom was only slightly more active than we were last month, and we have been higher on the list than them in the preceding months. My guess is that at first we will be more active, and then it will die down again. If we merge, Jinnah and I will no longer be your hosts. So our incentive to keep things moving won't be there as much anymore. So I'm guessing that board will look identical to how it looks now as far as the frequency of new topics is concerned. Meaning, not much different than what it is here now.

Kristen, that is what I noticed. They aren't really active. Zukin, you say they were active, yesterday, but so were we. I think they are about as slow as we are. If we merge, it would probably boost things a bit (as Kristen said). I think it would be a little more active with both combined... BUT, the atmosphere will be different, also. New people. That could be a good thing or a bad thing. I see both the positives and negatives. I'm totally on the fence on this one. If you guys want to do it, fine. If not, fine. At the same time, it's difficult to keep an extremely slow room moving if no one really posts. If we do keep it as is, I'm hoping everyone can post more.

I also think Jm needs to get with it and come out with an app! :( I hate that it seems like it's dying...

I agree and honestly think the whole website is dying. On the other hand, I guess I don't understand why it's so hard to post from different devices. I post from an iPad, at times, and it works just fine.

Zukin October 19th, 2013 10:42 AM

Re: PR merger
 
I post from my iPhone, PC and my laptop.. I don't see a major difference except the "easy" part of it all. It's not hard honestly, but to each their own.

I do see that it's been slow, but they just merged in sept i think, not even 1 mo ago.

I REALLY dont want to merge, but half the people like I said refuse to come on here and state they cannot join because of X device... It really saddens m e because most spoke on the forum with the same devices they used in the DDC.

Whatever we chose, I hope nothing loses touch. I'm always here, now that I'm not working I can definitely post more lol

Honestly, I think people tend to become addicted to Facebook. If they can have this experience over there at the same time as candy crush and all their other friends updates, it's a no brainer. I don't think it has anything to do with JM not having a convenient app. I think the real reason is people just like spending time on Facebook.

Re: PR merger
 
If we merge, Kristen needs to come back to the FB group! :)

Honestly, I'm sad that JM is so slow. I means a lot to me ... but in order to keep up with people, I'm on FB. If I had my choice, we'd all still be over here.

Re: PR merger
 
I can't can't can't understand why with all the government control watching and LURKING over Facebook and stealing their buddy lists and all else why people feel they must post every little thing on Facebook. Many people have stopped posting there to make a statement to the NSA.. (My politics for the day! :))
Anyway as for the board merging????? Not sure. It is dead all over the JM website.
I like it just us gals but I don't know if it would e a good thing or not to merge. I love having the two hosts we have.
