As mentioned in a couple/few other places here in the fora, the Cafe will be getting a bit of a facelift soon. I will be working on graphics and such for my new biz sites, so will most likely do the same for the Cafe at the same time, changing the color scheme and what-not.
I'm also thinking of renaming the forum, but am seeing what my options are first. The whole point of these changes is so that it will match my VA biz site since this will be an extension of it (as was planned when first creating the Cafe). The purpose of the site isn't changing, though, and hopefully linking to it from my biz site will help increase the number of active participants.
Don't worry! The Cafe isn't going anywhere and nothing is getting deleted! Although, I may clean up the members list, removing those who are either no longer with us, most likely just spammers, or otherwise no longer participating. I can see when peeps last logged in, so you can rest assured that anyone who's done so in the last year or so won't be getting the boot unless one of the first two reasons applies.
Before I even start doing that, though, I will be sending a message from the Admin account to the entire member list to give them the option of keeping their membership. I will give everyone 30 days to respond before I start cleaning it up, but I won't be ready to send it out for at least a couple/few days, anyway. Of course, those of you who've posted at some point during the past year don't need to do anything -- unless you're a dirty rotten spammer, that is. LOL
Some might be wondering why bother with the members list, especially since it's finally over 100. Well, my line of thinking is that newbies may be turned off if they happen to view a member list full of mostly inactive members. We want to increase the numbers AND the level of participation here so we can get the most out of our little place here at the Cafe (oh, and it will still be "the Cafe" after the name change)!
So stay tuned!
