    What Happened to this site?

    I want to know what happened to this site? I use to come on here and read all the messages and it took hours. Now I spend 3 minutes every other day in here. Where did everyone go? Did I miss something?

    I agree I haven't noticed much slowing down. Plus people are actually posting reviews which is a positive thing. It's not only the number of posts, but the quality that counts !

    I have to agree with John. I also have the perception there is much less activity here.

    your perception is a result of the fact that certain people are nolonger posting here ... they are gone so you feel things have slowed down .... the reality is that others have stepped in and have more than made up for their departure

    It`s just a pereception. Here is another set of stats that shows the number of Registered Users logging into their https://merb.cc accounts daily is actually increasing.

    It might be the green background

    This green background is driving my eyes nuts. This might be the reason. Why not change this to a blue or grey background.

    Cool Green...

    This green is certainly a factor to be taken into account!
    Also, how many new sps and mps do we have in Montreal! They keep changing names and agencies but are the same performers. And, how many do not post for various reasons!
    This green doesn't help!

    No..I think you need to adjust the resolution on your monitor - I don`t
    find the colour hard on the eyes.

    This might be the reason.
    I don`t understand ! We already established that https://merb.cc activity has not changed and all the stats prove that.

    Here is another set of stats - it shows the number of new registrations daily on MERB. eg: Yesterday alone we had 14 new members signing up for new accounts.

    Merb

    New members and postings have little to do with the quality of MERB!
    Hits are important for sponsorship though!
    Montreal is a small market!
    Even with out of town members!
    Once you have had ten reviews or so on a provider, what else do you expect!
    Many members go back to the same providers time after time! It's getting boring!
    I am the first to blame! Most of the providers I met in the last year or so want to keep everything quiet!
    They are not with any agency, do not advertize much if at all and operate in their own environment!
    Multiplicity of boards has nothing to do with it!

    Agree with most, if not all, your comments. I think what counts is whether members are deriving some value from the board. The fact that many of them check the board every day seems to indicate that they do. The number of daily postings is not that relevant.

    Fred:

    You ae right, but a lot of the posts are either questions or rehashing of old names. "Hey has anyone seen or what ever happened too"? etc. I still love this site and yes it breaks it down to make us out of towners have an easier time when traveling up there. I find the strip club reviews to still be fresh, but the street action, incall, and outcall sections have gone down hill. But to sum it up.. its still the best site on the net!!!
