Might be delusional and a tad out of touch with reality, but hey, if it makes them happy, go for it.
    Do they use continence pads too?

    No idea, but I know their memory only lasts a couple weeks, so shit like this simply doesn't matter when dealing with old people.

    You can't revisit the subject later on, because they won't remember it ever happened, and instead will get all insulted and defensive for you making up what they think is a false story. Then they claim you're delusional for making things up, and down the spiral the conversation goes. I've learned to just be appeasing, and let them be happy regardless of reality or truth.

    End result, decent chance all this shit is a moot point anyway, because decent chance Dodger won't even remember it happened in a few weeks time anyway.

    Not Dodgems. He is an honourable man as are all the Bookburners, all honourable men. They do not peek, nor do they pry.

    I'm sure everyone here has an idea or two as to how to accomplish this. I only have one:

    - Remove any obstacles that would prevent people from wanting to participate.

    People want to have fun on forums - not do battle with invisible forces like some child's video game.
    You think everyone will have an idea? Perhaps. But you are surely aware that the desire to offset ageing memberships by increasing the posting membership of Boards and ways this could be effected has been an occasional topic on gaythailand.com and gaybutton.com. In both cases virtually no ideas were put forward and there was zero increase in posting membership. Probably it is a topic that has also been aired here before.

    gaythailand.com has now become part of a much larger GayGuides Board adding European and US membership. The number of posts have certainly increased, but as far as I can see the Thai posts tend only to be made by those who posted on the old Board. In other words, the memberships of both Boards are not mixing - yet. gaybuttonthai.com, founded when it was believed that gaythailand was to become part of a US escort site, seems to be on its last legs with very few new daily posts apart from those by the board owner.

    I have some gay expat friends in Thailand not one of whom has any interest in posting in any gay chat forum. They do not contribute to any chat sites at all. Equally I have a couple of friends who vacation in Thailand every 2 or 3 years. They also see no reason to even read any of the chat rooms. So I have always wondered where a new posting membership might come from.

    Every bar owner knows there’s a percentage of his regular customers who believe they have the absolute crowd-pleasing idea to boost the number of customers. The same is true of every commercial website. If it’s that good an idea it’s probably already been tried. Why are sites like Gaybutton a posting desert? Might it be that the Grand Ayatollah who runs that site accepts no dissent so people simply don’t bother? The costs to start a site are minuscule compared to starting a bar, but there are many more thriving bars than there are thriving sites. If Dodgems and his fellow Bookburners believe in their business model, why not start their own site?
