Not Dead, but very new

Kilo,
This place is pretty new, a few weeks. It take time for a discussion board to
take off. It has to reach a critical mass of registered and interested
members to take off. So far, it has done pretty good and better than I had
expected. It was Mother's day weekend and most people take off to visit their
mothers. Stay a while, and you will find that slowly but surely, people will respond.
Again, remember that this is a new discussion board. And thanks for your comments.

Jose

I agree it does take a while for people to be aware of this new board. This board is open to everyone but more to those who grew up in East Harlem. It will take time for all those who grew up in El Barrio to learn about this new website so we have to give it some time.

I have posted a few messages for some old friends and I know it will take time for a responce.

We need to email all our friends and let them know about this site so it will continue to grow.

You are quite right

It not only takes a while for a new board to grow,
but people must also tell those who they wish to be on the
board about the board. Since I don't have the money to advertise
community-wide, word of mouth is one of the only ways to let
community people know about the site.

Even if I were to advertise community, there is no guarantee that any
particular person would choose to register at this board. Its up to
them. But given time, more and more people will register and be part of
the forum. After a certain critical mass amount of people, it will be more
than likely that someone that you know will be on the board.

So why no make some new friends till your other friends show up?
If you can't be with the one you love, love the one your with.
But thanks for the thread anyway. No question is un welcomed here.

Im looking forward to meeting new friends here. And, would love to volunteer for any help you may need. Although I am not living in Harlem any longer, I hope that I can be of some help to this board.

I will be spreading the word here in Florida and to all my email friends.
