10 X the traffic and this requires a merger with other board(s).

I think too many bridges have been burned though and it would require a loss of power or ownership to a degree. I don't know if a compromise is possible but the powers that be would need to at least no longer retain 100% control and ownership of the merged board.

If that doesn't happen, I don't see the traffic picking up enough.

Crazy new suggestion-

I see all of these folks using the Twitter nowadays that get stuff posted on their page right away as a Tweet or Twat or whatever-- why not have a LGB Twitter where when new topics are posted on the site, the topic gets posted on Twitter? New people to join, new site views...

Although I don't understand the site too well, so that's on you Curt.

Good idea.
I found a plugin for the forum that is supposed to do just that.
It's on my list of things to do.

Don't feel bad...there are about 20 people I haven't accepted yet.
I have a self imposed cap of 100 friends, and I am currently over the cap at 105, so I am looking to make some cuts before I add any more.
