i suppose by looking at the forum main page and last posting dates, one could say this forum is less active than others i've seen.
some sections have more than a week between posts... i would say thats less active
but thats just an observation.
; I'd agree with you that there is not a lot of posting activity
on this forum compared to some other forums you may frequent - but there are also other measurable types of activity; if you knew how many views/hits this forum gets a day, I guarantee you, you'd be surprised;
I'd estimate that 65-70% of the forum membership that join this forum now, do so solely to search for Commander related information and never post. We have members who have been here longer than me, who are on the forum almost every day reading, but never post. Other people come here just to read and never even bother registering as members.
Case in point, as I sit here typing this, there are 3 members and 501 guests that are online, actively viewing & reading this forum and this is early in the day, those numbers will only go up in the evening, after everyone gets home from work;
Call me crazy, but, that's pretty active in my opinion.
As far as posting activity goes, you have to keep things in perspective too; Lets face it, this is a very small community; We're talking about a vehicle that was only in production for 5 years and has been out of production for almost 10 years now.
Couple that with the fact that at this point in the forums existence, people come here more looking for information to answer their own questions, then they come here to actually post, contribute & socialize. 10 years ago, I'm sure the dynamic here was completely different and there were a lot more people posting, when Commanders were still somewhat new & much more plentiful then they are now.
As the years passed by, people have sold their Commanders - or they've had accidents and their XKs get totaled and they can't get parts anymore. Or the damage is so bad, they say the heck with it, figure it's not worth fixing and just buy a new SUV.
All things considered, I'm somewhat surprised, that this forum stays as active as it does.
