There's a good 20+ years of information and data on this site... would be interesting to be able collate all of the data.

Adrian has all the backups, but the forum software is extremely old and cannot be updated any further.

The waybackmachine has snapshots of the entire site over the course of the last 20 years as well.

Think the site needs to be locked as more of a reference library (an akashic record if you will) and start the active forum afresh with some new software. I think in trying to preserve it it is dying a slow death.

Becasue right now the people who come here treat it like a library. Very little talking but lots of good stored info

I agree with Floriferous plus I would add deleting the one offs (the post with no replies) and other such garbage.

It is a lot of work building a forum from scratch ( who would do that ). Would all the mods here move over and get the threads going?

I recently opted on this route and began a new youtube, starting all over from scratch.

The time seams ripe for beginning new.

I am getting more views on my videos on the new channel with less than 50 subs as I do on my old channel with thousands.

Contemporary algorithms bury us I guess. I don't know. BUT

If the Pulse begins anew I will be there.

Just curious. What makes you think people would talk/post on a new Forum? The same thing is happening to many Forums today.  undecided huh

I can't speak for the numbers of people wanting to talk on forums but I think a new forum would help in two areas. Casey mentions one, which is having internet presence which this old site struggles with but also the new user sign up is out of date and not very automated. Differentiating between humans and bots can be difficult and as a result we might be turning away actual humans.

Ideally, yes.

Realisitically, the forum software is OLD and *CAN* fail, literally, at any moment... LoL
Now, Adrian has many backups and the forum being offline for more than a week or two is highly unlikely.  Smiley

Adrian is good at what he does behind the scenes with regards to the Astral Pulse.  He loves this site dearly.

I agree with both of those points. The server is outdated, as stated by Xanth and it would be nice to finally be able to differentiate the Human viewers vs the Bots. I think that we could also improve not only our viewing audience, but also our actual Members here by advertising more on Social Media. As in shared links, not full blown Ads. The problem there is that I don't think that there are many Members here that frequent or even use Social Media. I know I don't. Opening up to Social media could also open up a whole new can of worms here on this Forum. That does comes back to the adage "careful what you wish for, you just might get it"!  undecided

You are right, Lu! . . yes social media is NOT the way to go, save perhaps, specifically the more serious AP/OBE groups that are there. Before I would suggest that, I would suggest the existing Forum boards out here to link in with one another. I link from my board to here, the Astral Pulse, Explorations in Consciousness ( hoping one day Fred will open it up again ), My Big Toe and Bring4th *The Law of One group. I am spending this whole year, some of you know about 'this year' for me, working a consciousness experiment encouraging those I know *off* social media and back onto the forum boards where we can of course focus deeper into the practice and work at hand. It takes a lot of effort but I am beginning to see some lift. The forums themselves are not enough anymore. Practitioners need practice partners and practice groups *more interaction. If the members here are not offering this, it is a boon for the site to link to other people/boards who are. Linking together we become one single SUPER structure, with offshoots where people can find everything they are looking for. - without needing social media. We make ourself, our own larger structure sustainable.

Anyway - this is the way my brain is working these days. -- all of me says we have to group now.

The boards  (  not just the people  )  the boards linking with form a network.

We all know how neural networks  w o r k  and function.

I like the idea. I have looked at some of those other Forums and found that they have their own definitions of what is what and are quite adamant about it as well. To be able to congeal together as a "superstructure", as you put it, we need to all take a step back and look at the other person's point of view as well. That means complete open mindedness by all involved. Unfortunately, there is infighting in this community as well. We all need to realize that we all have our own perception of what's what and what is going on in this phenomenon.

 I agree, we need to group now. Now is the time. Why? I guess we will soon see!  smiley

Exactly right.

Realize that we all are, and have our own perception, our own experience - and SEE how this all works beneficially to everyone benefit.

I link to the boards I do because they represent clear, focused, extraordinary bodies of work. - work that is every bit as consistent and diligent as my own. The boards and the people are a compliment to my own. We are all doing the same thing, but focusing our way into the end game uniquely. Which makes for a greater body of choice for everyone all said and done. The kaleidoscope is always a win-win. It makes us ALL shine.

As Abraham says, "we cannot get it wrong, and we never get it done." - collapsing into anything less is our own loss.

Yes do not do it.

Ok first of all I do not want to see this forum be made a library only just for reading and no posting people new to astral projection can not ask questions are a read only forum that would just be plane dumb.

Second of all where exactly are you getting the ideal that this forum was created  from scratch and can not be updates at ? This is a public forum script called  Simple machines that has been out for years located at https://simplemachines.org/ you can get the upgrade files here https://download.simplemachines.org/
as far as updating that is simple breeze you just make a backup of the site down load the update files upload files and install its really a very simple process and there is all kinds of help on the site to help you no cost involved what so ever as far as I know.

as for people not posting well sending out mass emails with forum script to get people interested again that is as simple as writing the letter and clicking send ...

I look forward to the replies to the link suggestions.

In regard to getting people re-interested in posting on forum boards, it is a good deal more challenging than mass emailing.

People are increasingly more HOOKED on social media sites. - in good part without even realizing they are hooked.

I worked diligently for 2 years, then non-stop the past 3 months to help encourage people off, or at least, minimally, to reduce the amount of time they spend at that.

With constant effort you might make it through to one or two people a year. This is not said to discourage, only to show the work it does take.

Once people are inside the mass manipulation it is hard to get them out.

The time spent making retrievals is time well spent, though.

There is a reason for it, it is all this multitasking that people do, it has been proven that multitasking actually damages the brains ability to focus and lowers a persons IQ
people are losing a lot of their abilities most people now days can not even answer a simple yes or no question with a simple yes or no answer, you can not even ask a simple yes or no question on google and get a simple yes or no answer that is how bag things have gotten...

Sadly a lot of sites do, I have seen a lot of them go down or disappear trying to run a site comes with a lot of problems, I have tried several time to start some websites and they were just totally ignored despite how much advertising I did you get hateful people in web sites, or web site owners start creating insane rules that will drive people away and those type do things never help a web site in the long run...
