members moving from the 3B forum

I am not seeing a flood of new people coming over from the 3B forum. Probably not more than a dozen or twenty so far.

Perhaps one reason is that the majority of members on any forum don't participate much. The vast majority of activity is generated by less than 10% of the membership.
So
I expect to see most of the 3B forum members lost during the transition. Not sure what to do about that. As long as the old URL for the 3B forum is kept alive, a message can be posted that cannot be ignored, telling people the info has been joined in the new 3A/3B forum. Then give the standard method for joining this forum. It's not hard or confusing. Just follow the simple directions.
As I register people, I find about one out of 25 doesn't read the instructions and sends me a request without giving me a chosen username. I just email them back and ask them to choose. Once they respond, I register them. Not a big problem.

Perhaps the other reason is that a lot of us are already members here.  I would expect forum usage will increase with the addition of the 3B subforums.

Yeah--what Duffer said. I'm just looking for a page for the 3B group, not sure what it will look like. Huh

Ever thought about changing the name to cj3 forum and what is the estimated time for the 3b topics to be set up not in a hurry just curious.

Something like Duffer said. I think they should make a blue bar like the CJ3A page, and then have a few subtitles like the 3A page. It's not enticing to come here and not see a page named CJ3B, no one knows where to go. Like I said. CJ3B page and several sub-titles below might help. JMHO Undecided
