Mod note: split from How to make the forum better for novices?
I share many of the concerns raised here but by far my biggest concern is how well new users are able to adapt to the forum layout and how easy they find it to use. So that got me wondering @wadestriebel if we have any stats that might help? For instance:
- how many forum users do we have now
- how does this compare with, say, 12 months ago
- how many users create an account but then remain inactive
- how many users create an account and the close it shortly afterwards
That sort of thing.
