    It's summer. Traffic is always less by about twice.

    thats not what you said in the opening post.
    if your going to start a thread, be thorough.

    and this observation of yours is based on what?

    Yes this might be the reason but there is a considerable downfall may be because of database issues.

    database issues are pretty much gone in the past 2 weeks.
    summertime is most likely the reason.

    its hot out, i would rather be at the beach. :D

    It's only summer in like half the world (granted, perhaps the majority of visitors to this forum, but I'm basically making the point that it's not because of "summer" as such, sort of implying that it's globally).

    even i am wondering what has happened to the traffic? There used to be so many jobs in BST section, but it has reduced drastically. I dont understand this summer logic here, as we all want to earn money that too through the year...
    Just .. little confused and sad. I need some work of content writing and there are very few jobs here :(

    Regards
    Malika

    Except the traffic hasn't gone away. Looking at the analytics shows more visitorseach week than the previous week (consistently).

    It seems to me that the moderators may be doing a lot of work, because the content creation section doesn't have a lot of posts in the threads. Is that because of the summer time too?

    There have been a lot of members suspended for a week due to the new digital point rule against spam. We are the survivors of this week. :)

    This could be one reason, I never saw traffic less than 100 visitors in the sites forum and I have even witnessed 280+ visitors but now I have noticed that on average there are 70 people there.
