    Would love to know, and also always we want to keep this site exciting with good software, and new people.

    The googles. It's been far too long for me to recall the specific thing I was searching for that brought me here though.

    I should have added... at the time, there were several other ballroom dancing forums that came up in the search. But one of them appeared to not be functioning, and the others were only getting a few posts per day. DF had the most traffic by far.

    By complete accident, looking for a dance partner in a WCS field and ended up finding DF.

    I was a member of dancescape.com over a decade ago. I noticed people began to talk about another dance forum there, so I decided to find out what it was and landed here.

    Any advice on how we could get a few more people to join dance forums now?

    Facebook page? Twitter? (I dislike them both, but...)

    A huge number of people read dance forums who don't post here, so the community is really larger than it appears--impossible to know how much larger. Is it that you feel that there need to be more posts, or do you need membership numbers higher for, say, advertising revenue? And if the latter, how active do members need to be to count? If more posts, what area(s) do you think are light? Where would you like to see the growth? In the ballroom section or the salsa section, for example? Or is there a completely different issue? I have read through a lot of old threads, so I'm aware of the formerly active members who aren't posting any more, or who aren't posting a lot. Is the group of currently active posters keeping up/growing with historical trends? That's more difficult to track that just the number of members.

    personally, I think FB has had the largest impact in that much of the more mundane chatter that used to happen here now happens there...not that there aren't also folks who were prolific here who have left, but that is also to be expected over time as lives change...at least that is how it has worked for me
