    We need more posts to get people involved!

    Not just with new watches, because some people may be on a tight budget or not want a new watch right now. And a lot of people know just about everything there is to know. Buzzbait had a good idea with his q&a post, can I start a daily question or daily g-shock discussion thread, sort of like wruw but with a gshock topic? Any other ideas on stimulating discussion?

    I like that idea, is there a section of this forum for off topic discussion? Maybe one daily off topic discussion would be nice....

    The Cafe's appropriate for off-topic discussion.

    It could be a merger of "quasi-off-topic" with G-Shock culture......something like "What are G-Shock owners doing with their weekend?" or "Where did your G-Shock go today?"
    Do something exceptionally mediocre today

    F17 is the watch brand specific forum with the most posts, and one of the overall forums with the most posts so I think the participation here is pretty darn good and some of the discussions get pretty intense, technical, useful. It's why I enjoy this forums. That being said, usually when something is off topic, people just write their post and in the title write OT or off topic.

    Do You mean a kind of a "be good to Your NSA"-topic...?

    As not all G-shock users own a smartphone and a movement profile generation is quite difficult for them...?

    I feel this forum is active enough already. if it was more active, recent posts would get buried too quickly; Less active and people would get bored and not check in as often. It is the perfect level of activity.

    I think any threads which educate or help members with G Shocks or watches in general are great news. Bring them on.

    I however think that going away from the forums intent, esp into general chit chat is a total no no.

    I run a 16,000 member motorcycle forum. ALL the problems come from discussing non biking issues.

    Watches are all we have in common. Please let's play only to that strength.

    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.

    Re: We need more posts to get people involved!

    I was leaning towards having a g-shock topic of the day. Like maybe how to hydro mod your gshock or what is your favorite dw5000 style watch or something along those lines. But I guess that's the point of the thread, to have questions like that. But if they are general enough then everyone should be able to answer and it will build up data so people can find information easier using the search function if we are talking about a different g-shock topic every day?
