    Now the red wave has almost reached page one again.

    And in another thread ther was a complaint of too low weekend activity...

    Still we have had some posters lately who weren't frequent posters before, so all is well?

    There are two ways to keep the red wave on page 2.
    The obvious one is just to start a new thread, but sometimes you just can't think of a topic.
    The other way is to visit Page 2 - which nobody ever does - and find a red thread you'd like to post in.
    Is there a third way?

    Really? Nobody visits page 2,. How comes that some threads float to the top after a long break?

    All right, if you want to split straws - almost nobody visits page 2. 🙂

    ... and you didn't answer my question.

    In our langauge we split hairs not straws...

    I am sorry to have provoced your anger, and ask your forgiveness.

    The answer: Of course the only way to keep the red wave down is to post in threads which are not on page one at the time. So posting a new thread or posting in a "red" one or one which will become red soon.

    It is sometimes worthwhile to go to the page on which the grey takes over. Sometimes there is a thread which is not dead yet in terms of contents.

    There may be hundreds of channels on this TV but there's still nothing good on.

    Then why not try to insert some good, or is it just not worth your while?

    Ponderable, your visits to pages 2 and 3 as a matter of weekly routine to resurrect worthwhile threads is appreciated.

    Positive impact from returning and new members has been a significant factor in the "GF activity".

    Only three threads on page one have fewer than 10 postings. Is that a good or bad sign?
