Quote from: usmaakOther reasons I've seen/experienced over the years:1. The forum isn't what the member thought it would be.2. Too many threads go off-topic.3. Too many of the discussions have nothing to do with the topic of the forum.4. Members pushing their own ideas/agenda too hard.
Quote from: usmaakThis thread just seemed a little out of the blue to me. I am not sure if there are things going on here (aka interpersonal issues) of which I'm unaware. That's by design, of course. I tend to not notice things like that. So I just listed some of the reasons why I've left forums over the years. I've left many over the years. Mostly for the reasons I listed. Hate is a strong word. For me, they just served no purpose.
Quote from: DebAlso understand that I, as Admin, cannot always predict, prevent or control what people are going to say or do and so I usually have to mitigate problems that come up after the fact.I also cannot predict how someone is going to react or over-react to something that was said. As an adult you should know that we all have our personal triggers and sensitivities, and something a person writes may trigger a defensive reaction in one person while others don't see it as being offensive at all. If you feel you are being intentionally attacked or offended by someone or a post, please report the post or contact me directly and privately in a Personal Message.
Quote from: DebInteresting in your list about going off topic too much. I've seen that in tech support forums, but some members here seem to feel sticking to the topic is too confining. I'm fine with the wandering to an extent, I think this forum has a life of its own and so don't want to try to control it so much.
Quote from: usmaakHate is a strong word.
Quote from: usmaakRight. I just don't participate in topics that don't interest me. If a thread that I'm on wanders into territory that I don't want to go to, I just leave it alone.
Quote from: SenaDeb, it is very difficult to go off topic on a Seth forum because the Seth teachings cover almost all aspects of life. There is a saying, "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life." We can say, "When a man is tired of Seth, he is tired of life." Seth had quite a lot to say about science, but not much about mathematics or gardening.
Quote from: DebSeth DID use gardening analogies quite a bit,
Quote from: Deb on July 28, 2021, 06:58:43 AMHi Sena, thanks for this topic. The title scared me! I'm glad you like it here.I could also add some people leave because they lose interest in the Seth materials, or were not that interested to begin with, or they feel all their questions have already been answered.Of course there are some personality clashes as well. Great quote from Seth Speaks!I also think some people just don't enjoy writing. On the other Seth forum, their member participation is way down because the members would rather communicate in their Facebook group, which is very popular. On Facebook, people can be anonymous and less committed. Seth Lite. A lot more people are reached. But it's harder to find older posts, so it's more of a here-today-gone-tomorrow news feed than the repository I consider SoS to be.
