Default How do we get new members and guests to post?

There are about 200 members who post regularly and about 3,300 who visit but do not post. The posts from our regulars are great and it would be fun if more people joined the conversations. I hope they are not fearful that they don't belong or that they won't "fit in."

Talk of The Villages is for everybody and I think I can speak for our regular posters, that the more people who join the conversation by posting, the more friends you will make. It is safe to say that some real strong friendships have developed as a result of posting here on TOTV.

I would find it more helpful if we got information re the villages and/or things to do around the area...I am not much for chatter though so maybe I have the wrong idea. I'm sure there is a wealth of first hand experience out there that people would benefit from.Thanks.

Talk Host.
I could not agree more. I would join you in urging people to join the "conversation". There is definately a case for "the more the merrier"
So, if you are reading and watching this forum, please join us, ask questions and meet some interesting, fun loving and intelligent people willing to share information and make new friends.

Hi Fran, I guess a good way to start getting familiar with this terrific group of TOTV'ers is to simply ask a question. If you need to know some info about TV just ask. Believe me you will get answers and make many friends along the way. Welcome, JohnnyM

Just want you all to know that I think this is the best thing going!!!! I will be coming to the Villages for 2 months for the first time and in the past 3 weeks I have gathered so much helpful info......about the best vet, the dog sitters, the recommended restaurants, things to do, etc, etc, etc. You folks are a wealth of helpful info!! Ask and you will get an answer, or 3 or 4!

I can't even remember how I found this while prowling around the internet but I am so glad I did. Thanks for all your help. Can't wait to arrive! I will continue to interact with you and encourage others to do so.

FrannieB wants info of things to do.

With more than 3,700 members out there doing stuff, we should find something for FrannieB.

Why not post a sentence of where you went, what you did that others may find interesting?

We just joined after reading all the topics on this board. We are long time residents too. First I've heard of TOTV.
