Site Expectations
« on: 14 July 2006, 15:24:44 »

I do hope this is the correct area and not too off topic.. ;)

So we all love the new place, and we all know who is responisble for the site.

So come on guys; Laidback, TheBoy, Mark DTM and Ronnie.......

You must have talked about your expectations for numbers of members and when you would expect to break certain barriers.

Is the uptake so far as expected, better than expected, beyond realistic hopes?

I am betting Sunday for Member 100!

Hope you all have some free time to sit back occasionally and marvel at your creation  ;)

3 days since launch, 70+ members and 1100+ posts. And thats before we're indexed in a search engine (though we have been trawled by Google, but not yet in its index).

I think that counts as your 3rd option ;)

But remember, its you, the members that make a forum, so thanks go to each and every one of you - Laidback, Marks_DTM, Ronnie McB, and myself really do appreciate your support here :)

I don't think we did talk about expectations you know.

We just wanted to set up an Omega owners site. :)

Suffice to say we are rather shocked at the speed at which things are growing!  :)

As Jamie says, it is you guys that make this place and we are very grateful of your support so far.   [smiley=2vrolijk_08.gif]

Longer term aims?

2 fold.

1. Get the forum more established and supporting you guys as best as possble.

2. Develop the website itself.
We want to create THE place for all things Omega related on the internet.
This will take some time to design and build, but ultimately the aim is for the forum to be an integrated part of a larger site.

The site will have the complete background and history of the Omega with information on all models (including viewable brochures, etc), a better buyers guide, and a proper in depth explanation on how to maintain your Omega with step by step instructions and pictures.

Grand ideas, and they will take some time!  ;D

I see so the guides will become HTML pages rather than served by the forum software.

Sounds good.

Yep, my feelings precicely. Without raking through old coals, and nobody start doing so either, we all know why the forum was started. Personally I thought it would be mega-successful, but not this fast!!!

I agree with what Jamie and Dave have said. It is YOUR forum, not ours. We are all doing this because we love Omegas and have (if I dare say) a very extended knowledgebase of all things Omega. With your help and with a little tweak here and there from us as and when required, this will become a superb forum.

Is it what I expected? BETTER.

Thanks again to all of YOU for making it a sucess already.

Thanks for all of the efforts so far - I think I can probably say for most of the members who have joined that it is being very well received and I look forward to seeing it develop over the coming months.

As for site development and ideas, the suggestions you have indicated sound great, if there is anything I can help with, let me know.

I knew it would be big but not this big this quick - I also guessed to its existance about a week before it was live, after Ronnie left the other place I knew something would happen
