In answer to a suggestion that "it's always the same dozen people who post" I have taken a look back to the start of this year ... yes, just 9 and a bit days ... to reveal

217 different users have been logged in (*) . 84 of them have posted - 582 messages in total so far.

In the last 12 months, 267 different users have posted.

Edit to add ...
(*) - that's users logged in - there have been around 1,500 visitors if you count guests as well as logged in members.

I don't know if I am typical, but I "lurked" for quite a while before making my first tentative post. I would look forward to seeing some of those visitors making the same quantum leap this year.

Same here.  I lurked to understand the culture and operation of the board.  I only joined when I felt I could contribute positively to the discussion.

Gentlemen, the admin / moderator team appreciates your natural British reserve ... and there have been many others who have signed up and left their virgin post to months or years later.    However, we are a forum for passengers, passengers have questions and really should not be put off posting ... some of the more basic questions, indeed, are the lifeblood of the forum and it's great to have hooks onto which the more-experienced can hang answers.  I strongly encourage newcomers to join and post - just don't flood/spam us with 400 posts in 2 months!

February posts dipped below 2,000 ... first time in.year. "Just" 1896 posts.  But then it was the busiest February since 2014 ... and February 2014 was the month that the Dawlish Sea Wall got washed out (was that really five years ago?).  February is also a short month - posts per day average up from 65 per day in January to 68 per day in February, with a whole background of no major weather problems or announcements.

I don't have (easy to access) stats - but noting (and big welcome) to new members last month - more I think than in a typical month.  We never have a flood of people joining, and value each and every one of you.  Double plus welcome to those who have posted for the first time too.

Do you have something you would like to add to this thread, or would you like to raise a new question at the Coffee Shop? Please [register] (it is free) if you have not done so before, or login (at the top of this page) if you already have an account - we would love to read what you have to say!

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
