Title: Roll call... Week of March 18, 2018
Post by: SHOwn on March 18, 2018, 11:01:59 PM
As the title says, just asking who is still active here. I see 3 or 4 members chime in regularly these days and I have to wonder, are we the only 4 or so that still have interest in these machines?

So if you read this post this week, just reply so I can at least feel better, seems pretty quiet lately.
Keep in mind I said  this week - don't reply to this in July!

Present.  I sure don't want this forum to fold.  A lot of chatter and support on the facebook group, but there is so much technical history here.

Iím not on Facebook so that would explain why there seems to be so few of us. However, one of the main reasons I asked was because the forum stats at the bottom of the home page says there have been 39 people on the forum today, and I think it is stuck on that number. I have a feeling the real number would be more like 4 -10.

The "Most Online Today: 39" is not the total visits per day, but the max amount of people on the website at one time during the day.

I figure that has to mean logged in. For instance, on my 3 devices, I am typically logged in on two of them all the time, so Iím probably accounting for two of those users. I really wonder if 19 other people have the site logged into two devices all the time as well. Iím guessing that about 6 or 7 of us keep a close tab on what is up on this site, others only post when problems arise with their cars. That would explain why the number of posts cycle with the seasons. Not nearly as many people tinkering with their Capris from November through April so traffic is minimal. Posts ramp up quickly as people pull their cars out of storage and have to address the consequences of a car sitting for months and scramble to diagnose and find parts.
My iPad and iPhone can keep me logged in on Safari, while I donít keep my windows computer powered up continuously or I would account for yet another user in the count.

I am the same as SHOwn .... My laptop and tablet are always logged in. I am on the site several times a day researching and looking for new posts. Keeping 3 capri running.  I just acquired 2 XR2's and the turbos are new to me, so I am wearing the ink off the old turbo posts!

I'm also still here.  My Capri's in good shape and I don't need as much assistance as I did several years ago (which is a good thing!) but I still check in once and a while.  I'm waiting for Rocketman to announce he has strut tower braces for sale.  And an MAF adapter for a 94 NA!

I'm here, back from the trail, working 2.5 jobs.

I'm approving members and weeding out the many bot registrations every day, but haven't had a whole lot of time to post.

I've been keeping up on TeamCapri's bills & doing regular database backups. It's not going anywhere any time soon. Just kinda chillin in the background at the moment :)

Beckerman .... So glad you chimed in! I was getting nervous about the future of this site. Way too valuable to lose it and your experience.

That darn autocorrect gets me a lot! I wonder why it does change autocorrect to something different when you type it?

Wow, ya donít know what others are going through on sites like ours. That sounds awful. You, your wife, and the Rocket and Russ, and WasihiestSnake are going through some hard stuff. You may or may not believe in Jesus but I will pray for yaíll  if thatís ok with you. I can tell you that He absolutely cares and brings meaning in tough times, and deliverance ultimately.
