Excellent question Andrew. I've been trying to ask the same thing--but it always comes out wrong. I wish I had a clue. Please let me know if you come up with something

The short answer is to engage in more of the posts.

What I began to do was to try to demonstrate with illustrations how to subscribe to the forum so the different posts automatically are notified to readers without needing to check back.

Maybe I will do that another time.

I've written a short article about the Forum to go into the online Dyspraxia and Life Magazine hoping to get a few more members off the back of this.
www.dyspraxialifemagazine.co.uk

Difficulty is we can't very well expect people to do X posts a week or be dropped as that would just be counter productive as we want people checking in because they want to, not because they have to.

Any ideas to try and encourage and engage people would be gratefully received. I did wonder about a FB page but there are plenty of rival FB Groups that are already competing and feel we have our own USP.

I don't have any ideas; I did try to suggest it in the past but it came across badly, so I won't be going there again. That being said, I hope other people will come up with some effective ideas. Thanks for the article Tom, I didn't even know about the magazine. I'm enjoying it.

I hope it is clear from this image.

It is not particularly in focus to read but I hope it can be seen where to click to subscribe to Forums so that one gets email notifications

The little 3line list icon next to FAQ lets you see if there are new unansweed or unread posts

Yes - Thank you - and for keeping things going so smoothly here

That way one does not need to set up subscriptions but one needs to check as often as is convenient.
