Not sure if any mods or admins will see this, hopefully so. I was wondering if you would reconsider opening up the forum to new members again. This used to be a really busy site with many people commenting and posting new topics. Gradually over the years since it became a closed group I've watched it slow down to the point where nothing has been posted that is new since mid May in general discussion and other topics have ground to a halt. Appreciate it would mean more moderating time for those who do it and there are always going to be difficult new posters to a forum who are out to cause mischief but it would be great to inject some new life into this forum and bring it back to it's hey day when it was a lively place full of lots of vigorous discussion about Marilyn from fans all around the world.

Any mods out there with any thoughts on this?

Thank you for listening.

That sounds like a great idea. I've never been an active poster here but I remember when new info and pictures were posted almost daily. This site is a Marilyn-bible for me. You couldn't even fill a book. But a lot is missed due to no new members.

I'm an admin of two facebook groups, that I sometimes have no time for, and any long-time, serious member with a high post count can expect a request to mod. Also because they are from all over the world there is always someone there to take care of stuff.

I hope they reconsider!

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/marilynbybrandon_190.gif) I agree, we should have more new members and new posts especially photos and articles and newsletters.

I agree, maybe some new blood would revive things on ES. I think some of the problem lately is a result of server issues. It's been hit or miss whether we will be able to see pictures that have been posted. I know that Mels and others are working diligently to correct these issues. It is discouraging to check in daily and not see much activity at all, especially if you've posted something and it can't be seen. It proves frustrating. It is beginning to be a ghost town.
Thanks Fav for suggesting something to generate activity.

Thanks Stacy, JC and Marianne. I've not really noticed the pictures issue on here. For me it's just the activity I miss and the variety of ideas, topics and discussions. I can only think that allowing new blood in here will solve that and breathe new life into the place. I really hope it will be considered otherwise this wonderful forum will soon grind to a complete halt. Fingers crossed. I've messaged board owner Mels about this. Hopefully she'll come back to me/post on here soon to advise if it could be considered.
