The site is fairly new so we are hoping that the site will pick up as the member count increases.

Any ideas that you might have on how we might expand the community would be greatly apreciated.

I think were doing ok like you said it's fairly new and it will take some time to
Build a following. I think with the newer products out now the winchesters will be makeing a comeback into the spot light. It's hard to compete with mob of Mossberg and Remington fanatics. Winchester has been tried and true for a long time with a great linage and history of quality and durability. I think all we need to do to increase our standing member wise is to just keep posting And keep talking about our winchesters. Thanks to those who made this forum!

I drop in just to see if any activity of any kind is on going. So far this is the quietest forum I visit regularly; too bad, should be very active with the name it possesses. I'd like to see a "General Firearms topics" thread. Maybe that would help. I dunno!!!

I've been on other forums where some jerk starts acting up and publically insulting others. Alot of times nothing is done. While this has not happened on here it is bound to eventually. I hope if something like this arises that it is dealt with. Most all of the other forums do nothing. What is the policy here?

Have not been on in awhile and looked at the new posts and there are three posts advertising a web site for junk like watches and hand bags.

To help advertise your forum you could start a Facebook page for the forum, There is also a thing called link sharing where you partner with another forum. You also want increase your standing in searches with search engine optimization.

Since no one has responded to this thread in about 4-1/2 years I thought I'd try to revive it.

As a relative new comer I think you're doing a great job. Seems like members are courteous,knowledgeable and interested. I wish posting pictures was easier though.

Keep it up!

I just signed up. It's a bit slow however as with all forums it takes time to grow a group. The site is very high up on a google search when searching the name Winchester or Winchester model 70,so that will inevitably bring traffic to the site.
The information base is alright. It will grow as guys post.
Takes time.
