would be interested as to how many spam members you get here. Sometimes they get to put up a couple of unwanted posts before I get to them.
@StevePame the last admin set up good spam filters, and new members also have to be manually approved., but still slip through the cracks. Steve does check in and will respond to a PM from you, although not at once.

Is there a need? I don't think so. But a use, a purpose, most definitely. Above all else, there is potential, who knows what tomorrow will want and who could satisfy this?
Of the posts in which I have been involved, those that inform and sometimes entertain and even on occasion offer a feeling of belonging, have always outnumbered those that infuriate. On that basis, I hope to see this forum in existence for many more years and hopefully thriving too.

I am gonna miss names.... but the braintrust we have here (to me) is incredible.

Thomas, RJ, NJ, SG, 123, ACOT, phyllis Rabbi, Cino, Craz, Tony, Aup, arthra, ahanu...and more.

There is no place I can go to get a plethora of valued opinions and thoughts...I do not agree.with you all on all things...but i do rspect your opinions and insights. And love when you push me back on the tracks.

Then add the newbies who have come in in the past year...asking questions, getting answers and sharing deep thought... is there anyone here who hasn't been touched byba post or sent down a rabbit hole?

And then the departed...whether from the site, or the planet old friends I have never met whose words are.still in the words I find falling from my lips as my own.

This site and its discussion has had an impact on me and those who encounter me...

I thank and appreciate you all.
I’m sorry, no amount of buttering us up will get you a larger allowance nor will we let you stay up after eleven.

a figment of your imagination
The Bahai Answer Forum has 5 members and the fees are due. All we get as new members are spammers

I can see how this could easily get lost when you have an Ocean of information we all drool over.

If it is open for negotiation I will take double desserts and sleeping till 11.

What are our stats?

Not compared to pornhub or prankvideo sites...or even tiddlywinkntourneys...

But just numbers...clicks per day? Avg time spent by users on site. Unique clicks per day? New members last year. Number of active members per month posting vs checking in?

Again these would be of interest to me..bit would not change my opinion....we are useful imo.

Frankly if it were only five members...pick any 5 out of the top 25 members who posted any month in the past 10 years....and i would stay in that group chat and i would gladly continue to bounce thoughts, ideas, jokes around with them for the next decade.
This stuff is all probably available, although mostly far beyond my IT expertise:

There are also simple usage stats:
