Part of the reason for that is that moderators only post when they need to and normally don't post the way the regular members do.

Also, while I'm not sure about all of them, I know that Old Fat Guy no longer posts as the man who did his account is no longer alive.

Lindsey, our admin, has been tied up with projects recently as well.

Glen has a bunch of experience managing forums and is willing to help. Just sayin...

Hi there are 2 admins on this forum one is Tiburongirl and she hasn't been on in over 2 years and then there is Aislin she is the owner and admin and as of today she hasn't been on in over a month. Many of the Moderators have not been on in years or they died but there are only a few that still come on the forum. I have made several offers to help run this forum but I can't do any of the coding that she does but  I can maybe get the forum up to date not 2 years out of date but have not heard anything from Aislin. I own Mairead C, Susan, Eabha, and Tara's forums and im sure when she reads this post I will not be a member here any longer

Have you tried to contact the admins. or moderators using a PM?  I've always had good luck that way.

I'm not quite sure what you're talking about, the forum program is up to date and the girls do all have their own sections. The only thing that needs updating is the forum's theme, which isn't nearly as important as making sure all the coding is up to date, some of which I have to do by hand for various reasons.

As for the mods, I'm still here and Kim is, we just don't always sign in. The forum honestly isn't as active as it once was, so moding isn't such a huge job either, and we're here when things go awry.

I will say, with a form this large, coding and dealing with our host (whom I'm currently not happy with) is a huge chunk of time.

Aislin what I meant by the forum being out of date is not the software but content like the news banner at the top of the index page that is still welcoming Eabha to CW she has been here now for over 2 years and it is also promoting the  10th anniversary tour which is now 2 years past. There is a new member to CW yes you coded in her a spot but she has no Picture and the forum isn't welcoming her here and there is no new spot for the new tour Voices of Angels and the new CD that will have Tara Mcneill on it. The cd is being released on Nov 18th. And if there is a problem with the size of the forum get rid of the Fun and game section and that would reduce the forum by over half as it has almost 700000 posts if people come here to play games and not the CW content there is a problem and im sorry if I ruffled your feathers and I know what it's like to be busy as I have 4 forums 2 other web sites 5 twitter accounts and 6 facebook pages plus I have a small engine repair business that I run as a 1 man shop so I have my hands full and im not getting any younger but I don't want to see this forum die. So if you ever need any help here all you have to do is ask and I would be glad to help with what I can as I know nothing about PHP coding and at the young age of 62 I don't think I will be learning it any time soon have a great week

We love this place!

I can imagine it takes a lot of effort and skill to keep this place going.

If time is an issue, there are people eager to lend a helping hand with member admittance, board administration, FAQ pages ... those sorts of things and more.

If there's anything we can do to help, please let us know.  Smiley

This forum played a big role in changing my life.  I love this forum so much!

I don't even want to imagine what my life would be like right now if I hadn't been able to join the forum.

There have been people waiting up to a year to get on the forum (this is not speculation, this has been confirmed). We've even had someone on one of the other forums ask if they could help them get onto this one since they had been waiting a few weeks and was eager to chat with us. These are people who love Celtic Woman and want to share that with this community ... people who I'm eager to meet.

I don't want to seem ungrateful or difficult. I get that aislin is busy and it takes a lot of work to even keep this place running. I understand that some admins are protective of their forums and are reluctant to let other people help, for fear they will mess something up or in case there are differences of opinion on administering the place.

But it honestly is heartbreaking to know that there are people have been waiting so long.

Please let someone help. <3 <3 <3 <3
