Participation Is Critical

Post by Publisher » Wed Aug 01, 2018 9:23 am

In the past month I have received a few odd complaints by email. Odd by my reckoning, any way.

You long-timers have probably noticed that new forums have been getting added slowly over the past three months. Virtually unpopulated in most cases as we start attracting new members.

The "complaint" if you can call it that is that there isn't any participation for the area they are interested in.

Isn't that the cue to pioneer that part of the board?

GBN exists for information exchange not just bathroom reading material.

Dive in. Be a pioneer.

Sounds like they're a bunch of followers instead of leaders (at least to a degree). Maybe they should take the horse by the reins and start up a discussion in whatever area interests them and see what happens. Sometimes it only takes one to jump start the participation by others.

What puzzles me the most is the contractors who sign up giving this "reasoning" instead of just using the 10 free ads.

Imagine that just by showing up you got a free banner on the outside wall at a major league baseball game in the post-season, and just saying "nahhhh..." because you have to supply the banner and the tape.

So they get 10 free ads and all they have to do is provide the ad? They don't sound too driven to me. Not much marketing sense.

We've had quite a few new ladies join from that area in the past few months a couple of them have been or were active. There's always gents from here traveling to that area also seems like somebody posts about it every couple weeks they're going to Vegas.

I'll send you an e-mail here in just a bit with a little more information and details on what you can do if you would like to host or put together some kind of a meet-and-greet in that area.

I find it extremely odd that so many come, read everything they can about their particular geography - but ignore everything else.

Never contributing any input via information exchange - but expecting to find it. Catch 22 means something in that situation.

I would be interested to know if there's correlation between lookie loos/complainers and certain demographics; mainly age bracket.
To me there seems to be a shift in societal norms in recent years to expect everything but offer nothing. I find it more so with the (in general) under 35 crowd.
I feel it's the social media influence but of course my opinion and fifty cents won't even get you a soda these days. haha
Bottom line is that participation is vital. This is an information board. If you have knowledge....share it.

The only accurate demographic I can provide is that they're clustered around Peoria and Des Moines.

I just sent a mass email to people who have registered in November who have joined buy not participated beyond reading the forums.

Nearly 200 new members. With zero contribution to the info flow.

Now that's extremely sad. Surely one of them would have something to share. Sometimes the info may seem like it's inconsequential to them, but it might be what someone else is looking for.

I'm sure they DO have information to add. They wouldn't have wandered in here if they weren't at least someone in the know we even exist.

I read something the other day about the 1% rule. In short, 1% of internet users provide original content, the rest are all lurkers. I can certainly see how that would be true in my case. I usually lurk more than contribute to this place and social media.

I keep trying to participate but the topics that 1) look interesting to me and 2)show recent action, usually end up being someone updating the thread with a “POOF!” And that is frustrating. I will take suggestions on active threads you find interesting.

Well my only comment will be If you see a thread where "POOF" has appeared, it means the Contractor posted something MANY MANY months ago and has NEVER returned. A one post wonder if you may. She will very likely NEVER see your response. Or I could be drunk and don't know what I am talking about.

The POOF does lure people out of the shadow.

I suggest posting an Encounter in your area. We also encourage members to seek information if they find a companion of potential interest. Both of those are within your control, since they will emanate with you.

I do the "POOF" exactly for the reason Yag said - it DOES generate a reappearance of people. And if you contact that person because of it, be sure to let them know where you found them.

I highly doubt that none of you are both looking at and partaking of local talent, yet fail to report the experience. This universal malaise will be our downfall.

Pubs has a point.
I've noticed that just my Missouri date posts are about even with all of the guys posts in Illinois.
So why am I here? Cause I cut through central Illinois a few times a year. Also, DesMoines and QC. I think I'm the only KC guy that understands the QC acronym

Honestly, local STL talent which fits into my budget range and/or quality of what I
look for in a date is few and far between, so I don't bother scheduling a date. I'm extremely picky, so I only have one local who I see regularly, so no use of continually posting about her. I do provide her as a Contractor to see for anyone inquiring about STL companions.

There is one new Contractor to town whom I've contacted once, but she never replied. Granted, her schedule changed where she ended up not being in town on the day I requested, so I'm going to try one more time.

I am damn near celibate. QC talent is almost all gone. Too old to try SKG.

Once I am fully vaccinated, and infection rates go down, AND I can get out of the house, I hope to have something to contribute.

Tavia signed up last week. I made her an offer I thought was too good to refuse IF she participated on here - No response, and has not returned.

Pubs,
I've had 3 KC Metro gals look. They are all reviewed here. All have said the same. They're gonna pass cause I'm the only kc guy and they already have me on their dancecard. And, the ones that travel might hit DesMoines, but none hit St. Louis.

I saw her the other day where we briefly talked about gbn while I answered a couple of her minor questions. I'm not aware of her actively participating on any review board sites nor does she have any work SM. She's a busy woman. She now knows about gbn, so I'd just give her some space and let her proceed, if at all, at her own pace.

I hope they have a backup plan when Icky goes dark again, and Twitter decides to FUBAR their profession.

Yag, you have a good point and btw, that's actually a common discussion item that I hear, and I agree that exxxx has taken a downturn.

Every gal I date is also on P411. Quite a few are on Tryst. Private Delights is starting to get traction in KC also.
Frankly a lot of gals have already left exxxx (sort of). I've been told by a few gals with memberships that they they just lurk nowadays, but use the message system and find the women's room useful for sharing warnings about selected guys.

2021 may be the end. The past 4 months has been almost NOTHING but passerbys. I know many of you readIng the board are out seeing companions.

I wish I had something to contribute. But for some time now finding new ladies I want to see and that will actually respond to my inquiries has failed all the time. It's very puzzling and frustrating.

I've posted reviews of the only 2 ladies I've seen, these past 5 months. I saw Mia back at the beginning of July, and posted a review. Right after that, my summer went to absolute schitt! I didn't even get back up to Madison to see Yuna. I haven't seen her in awhile. :sad2: If Virginia hadn't come back through Wisconsin, Melody ( from Touring Companions ) probably would've been the only lady I saw during the final 5 months of this year. I did manage to see Virginia Vixen twice, since she'll be going back to the Ukraine soon. She said it'll probably be about a year before she comes back to the states.
