WORM, what is it?
W for Write
O for Once
R for Read
M for Many times
A “forum” is about “discussion” but I think there is as much discussion here as there is at a cemetery. People come and look and read what’s written on the gravestones while the subject stays buried 6 foot under, with the worms. Now that’s dead as and we don’t really want to bring up dead stuff, we just want to keep it alive in the first place. But that takes effort, and as they say “No effort, no joy”.
I’m used to the Parallax forums where it is constantly buzzing, where boring and brilliant things are happening all the time. There is no magic there, just people making sure they are active and a part of the forum rather than just looking on and taking.
I also think that the official “solutions” aren’t very helpful, they sound just like a call center operator reading from a manual, but perhaps forum members with a little more knowledge and experience could chip in a little. When 10 people work together they get much more done than 10 people working alone. We are more than 10.
