To those English-speakers who have ventured over here from the other forums, I was wondering if anyone had any bright ideas to make the miniforums more attractive or easier to use. I notice that quite a few posters in this section have had their accounts lapse recently through insufficient participation, and that is understandable, as I know it can be difficult to remember to revisit regularly and to think of something worth posting here. Unfortunately the procedures that are used to prune inactive accounts are not able to take account of whether you're just a visitor from one of the other forums and may not know the native language of this forum, so the posting requirement has to be the same across the whole forum.
So is there anything you can think of that would make it easier or more interesting for you to post here? For instance, any long-term topics that would open up more scope for people to add their input? We already have the useful "General Purpose Thread", but is there anything more specific you'd like to see, or any other feature?
Not that I can make any promises, but it would be interesting to hear any suggestions. If nothing else, your reply will count towards your posts here.
