Re: [new forum] Request for a new forum
said by JoePro:As previous stated on page 1, this is normal. They were the first to come out with reselling videotron with the new tariffs. Prior to this they had one post a month for 2 years, then one post per year prior to that.
That's why I was asking about forum statistics. Right now, it seems to be attracting a lot more attention than other fully-fledged canadian forums. The Acanac one seems pretty dead to me.
One month is pretty much meaningless, especially since people are forum hopping telling others to create topics in that Ebox forum just to generate traffic!
Once the bugs are worked out of the new tariffs, and once their apparent throttling situation is fixed up, what do you expect of that forum in all honesty? Have you looked at the videotron forum? There is barely nothing about internet, it's all about TV since their internet just works, unlike DSL.
Acanac was the same thing. There were many posts there to boost stats in order to try and get their own forum. This went on for a long time, not a lousy month.
After a few months things calm down to an *equilibrium*.
-Kids don't forum-hop telling other to post only in a certain forum to generate bogus traffic.
-The initial "excitement" of being the first to come out with new pricing that the early-adopters jump to dies out.
-The forum topics created for no reason stop... etc etc.
Again this also happened with Acanac, but at a larger scale than Ebox.
Besides, as is, there is not a heck of a lot of traffic in the Ebox forum now. It's minute. Once equilibrium is reached in a couple of months (or sooner) it will be even less.
Seriously, JoePro, the tiny bit of topics and clicks are just that.. tiny. And it will get tinier unless they get more customers. And this will only happen in time.
I say wait it out 3 months and revisit it then. If they hype continues and if they grow it will show by then.
Also, the whole basis of this topic right here since the beginning was due to exactly one single topic in the videotron forum about Ebox. One single topic....
