Admin at DWT sometimes refers people here in topics that would be more suited here. Also, DWM still has a politics/lounge/engaged Buddhism section so they might be less inclined to come here. I think it will just take time.

For me it is an advantage to see new and different people than at DWM discussing here.

Been nearly a year, so enough time has passed for this site to perk up - it has not.

DW Mahayana/Vajrayana has an Engaged section and that is enough to satisfy any posters.

DNS could, and I hope does, pull the plug on DWE.

Why? No one is forced to log in or post, but if anyone wants to, this site is still here, same with DP, which has just as low of an activity level.

Occam's Razor - no need to multiply entities. But they are your sites, so you will do as you see best. :smile:

The low level of activity on this site does not have to be a bad sign. Maybe the lack of major political events since this site was initiated played a role, and if this is one of the reasons, then it is a blessing, or as it is often described: no news is good news :tongue:

I also think that most active participants have been very balanced individuals, and you need some controversy and extreme views to keep people engaged in endless discussions.

The number of participants and posts do not necessarily tell how successful this site is. The amount of good intentions by the Admin and moderators team as well as senior members from other forums who helped establish them means a lot, at least to me.
