I notice that no one from Threads has accessed Gatherings since 2009 (in talk to us), other than Vicky North in Nov 2010. I am surprised that Gatherings is a link on the top of the Threads site page as so little action is occuring. It is more than just a change in format, it is an attitude by the site owner that has caused the inactivity of this forum. I wonder if Vicky is supposed to still be managing the site, whether it has been delegated to someone else, or whether this was Vicky’s project and she is now busy elsewhere. Someone else needs to step up to the plate. A vital forum is good advertizing for Threads magazine. There certainly is no lack of people willing to communicate but the site needs some action and ease of use to become vital again.There are so many talented members here that it is a crying shame their skills and enthusiasm is not being utilized.
Personally I can’t understand the neglect here. Threads needs to recognize that much communication now occurs via the
web. They need to come into the 21st century as they did with DVD’s
