I would like to see everyone post more on our boards, especially for me, I am interested in the bargains board but all of the boards and I encourage everyone to share refundsweepers to their family and friends and share about it on Facebook. I don't know of any other board like Refundsweepers around. There are some boards like the bargains and the auctions, where only a handful of people post. If you have something to sell or share, please think about running an ad, ok? 😉

It used to be people posted a lot. I love all the boards. The recipe page is fun to look at. Would love to see more RAOK.

5 . "Ideas..."

Refunding and couponing have certainly changed since the 90s when I first discovered RS. And life is, well, life. Not everyone has the time to post on the daily.

Things I enjoy are the swaps, contests and frugal tips. Remember when I used to post "Frugal Challenges", like, how many things can be done with a rubber jar opener? Or, now that we've scored all these free shampos, what else can we use them for? Maybe I'll start those again on the Frugal board and see how that goes.

Purrrz,

Sue

There are so MANY groups and bargain groups too that are on Facebook.

I think that has hurt the site also!

8 . "Yes, I agree we need a revival to keep our forums alive!"

Here I am one to talk since I have hit a bad slump since Easter and can't get motivated to get my coupon lists together! However, I have tried to log into General Chat here, on most weekdays, and at least participate enough to say I am alive out here ... LOL.

It seems so many traders have fallen by the wayside. Maybe after school starts, or if someone can organize it, we should all drop a trader we used to trade with and miss, an email saying please come back, etc.

I notice a trader down below in Chat - Momto1 - just posted saying she was going to return ... and no one has welcomed her back. I think we need to encourage people and make then feel a part of RS.

Not only has blogs,Facebook, etc. hurt us, but the use of cel phones is a big culprit. Where as on a desk top, I can see the whole board, several posts at a time - a cel phone only shows a limited view and you miss so much activity unless you really put some effort into it. I don't have a smart phone and a co-worker was trying to convince me that I need one and we both had our "screens" up. Her on her cel phone and me on the desk top ... I swear we were on two different worlds!! I don't have a solution for that.

Just my two cents ...

There is a lot of behind the scenes and even blatant unkindness and as I get older it just makes me weary. If someone emails gossip or mean stuff to you...shut it down. If someone posts attacking someone for posting and sharing etc...contact the mods and shut it down. Don't trade with mean girls! That has had a lot to do with my lack of posting lately. I do trade on FB now. it is busier and I don't feel there are mean girls around (although I am sure there are, I probably just don't know who they are)

Don't believe everything you hear or half of what is emailed to you @@ lol.

I invited hundreds of people here. I still mention it from time to time on other boards.
