I reverse my previous position, making them all publicly readable is probably a good idea. I suspect many only read and never register to post so they never see the private forums.

Hmmm.... with views in the teens for member only sections and hundreds for public sections makes me wonder if most members haven't created an account and login regularly. Do you have stats on that kind of thing?

I don't think making them all public would help much, this is just a really quiet group. I was a member of the Wasatch Marine Aquarium society and their forums are very busy. One thing that drives much of their traffic is the Classifieds/For Sale forum as they are always selling and trading gear and livestock.

I'd like to see a Classifieds/For Sale/Trade section that is members only. I can only assume there are many people that leave the hobby and want to sell things, or people who get upgrades and sell older gear. It would also be nice to setup group buys with vendors or get sponsored vendors to offer our club discounts there as well.

Kirdy, thanks for the input! I've added the Time/Date stamp to the upper right of each message. See if that helps. Thanks again for the suggestion, let me know if you think of anything else.

I think (for what that is worth) the format is laid out pretty well. There may be an item or two that could be moved to the open area....but I believe you still need a member only section. (for club planning, dirty laundry, etc)

One thing that would be helpful is a date/time stamp on posted messages. Maybe it is already there and I haven't figured out how to turn it on...wouldn't be the first time.

So, the forums are quiet, they have been for quite some time... Questions for people reading this...

Would it help if all of the forums were open to the public to read? (only members can reply or post)
Would it help if all of the forums were only available to members to view (public would have no access).

Thoughts, suggestions, other ideas?
