I'm surprised these various groups (the ones I'm in, anyway, which might be a reason!) aren't getting more interest.
Any ideas?

No idea. The groups seem to be stagnating. Not sure if the other 2.0 testers haven't found/tried them yet, or they just didn't grab on. Maybe if some more groups of diverse types show up, we'll start seeing action.

It might not be bad if one of us, or any editor who might be listening in were to rattle the bushes in the general forums a bit.

As an on-topic note, I used my Platinum WP submission on a trave topic. Hope all of you enjoy it!

Shows our inner characters - mine was on booze!

I did not know it existed until I was nudged. I think exploring 2.0 is a requirement and requires time. Frankly, this is a great idea ... much better than bbs.

I just got nudged by Jim, and I've joined. I have no idea what other groups there are. I plan to check them out.

I just read on one of the VERY OLD threads that there used to be groups before;
which then devolved into Rival Groups; followed by much sniping and over-the-top
competitiveness between the groups....
Maybe people are concerned by any appearance of divisiveness....

That was a totally different thing. Those groups were involved in competitive quiz-taking. This degenerated into all the old 'cheat' methods using aliases, marking down/up of appropriate groups' quizzes, etc.
Hopefully these chat pages are entirely different.

Maybe my systems are wonky?
But the email announcements of new posts here seem to have stopped.
And all thread titles are not shown on the home page.
That doesn't help for starters.
I don't think these groups are getting attention from on high, nor being 'marketed'.

I expect the "air" in the Groups is too "rarified"
e'g the only trip I've been on this year is the
5000 mile drive from Vancouver Island to Toronto.

Nothing interesting to report except that the Prairie
Provinces - in mid-February - looked like Moonscapes.

And the police in Northern Ontario are
five tickets in two days!!!! The speed limit there -- ON
which translates to 54 miles per hour!!!!
There are just some rules that are made to be broken.
Guess they need the Revenue....

At the bottom of a posting there is a box which says "notify me when someone replies". If you check it, you get a note, I guess. I have never gotten a note.
