In every way I like this site more then tv.com, except the show forums. One of the aspects i really loved was the fact that the forums for the shows were pretty active. I think that is one thing that we are suffering on here. I love to talk to other people that are into and watch the same shows I do. Does anyone else agree that it would be nice if they were more active here or are the way things are now seem fine to others? I was just wondering. And if anyone else agrees is there anything we can do about it? Is it just because we don't have as many people are tv.com to saturate each individual show as well. I have tried to post on a few forums but I find myself answering my own posts. Anyway just thought I would throw that out and see what anyone else thought and if you agree if there is anything we could do about it.

TV.com has more members then TVRage. That's why the show forums are empty and there isn't anything you can really do about it.

I think that one of the reasons is that we just don't get them going. When I look at a forum that doesn't have any threads then I know no one is going to be looking there. If as editors we posted a new question or topic about our show once a week then maybe if the boards don't look so empty people would be more likely to join in and add to it. Or even if we committed as editors to post in three shows that we watch but don't edit a week just to help other editors get there forums up and going. Even if we did both of those things it would take 10 minutes a week and I think make a difference. But that is just my idea, I do think we can get them going, but it would just take a little time from those committed to the site.

Yea, I'd say just give it some time. Lots of the people dont really know about this site yet and how much better it is than TV.com. TV.com basically took most of the TV Tome members and then some. I think by maybe November or October this place should be flowing with members.
I try to make thread in empty forums, but somehow they only seem to get noticed by 2 or 3 people.

Yeah, I do that sometimes too.. but there's usually little to no success
