Why is Sunday SOOOOOOOO quiet in E!??????
« on: June 14, 2009, 01:53:52 PM »
I can't quite seem to figure this out....Sunday is a day off work/school for many. I know it is a family day but in between doing things with 'family' there are periods of free time..so why is this the slowest day for posting????? It's almost like E! has closed up shop on Sunday and taken a holiday!!
For me- it's my only day during the week where I am home ALL DAY (most of the time and if I can get out of going anywhere and doing anything!) I LOVE Sundays...I just wish there were more postings on Sundays!!!!!

Well after a couple attempts in the chat room, the activity falls back down. I can't say why everything is going quiet around E, since i'm not the right person to talk about that. To me, it's like that almost everyday, since when i'm logging everybody is asleep. Lucky for me, some spend the night up so i'm not completely alone.

Weekends are always quiet. I'm not sure why.

Even during the school year, weekends are quiet. I would be out and about today except that outside influences keep me home. Otherwise, it would totally be beach time.

Also remember that a lot of kids graduated this past week, and will be graduating over the course of the next couple, so weekends will be packed with convocations, ceremonies, and parties.

Some people only have internet (or at least E) access at their work, due to various reasons. And as least people work on Sundays those people would all be missing. Also, we spend most of Saturday up partying, and on Sunday time is needed to recover?

To be honest, in the summer I don't even notice the day of the week more often than not.

There are also those people who work part time and get weekend hours because full-time employees like to have those days off...

Or people are just out with friends and enjoying the weather. Here it's actually really nice today. Little chilly, but at least it's not raining anymore!

Well for me personally, Sunday was (WAS) a day where getting to a computer was impossible. But not anymore (at least, for the duration of summer). That was my reason.

Glad to hear you'll be around Mathim..at least for the summer :-) Maybe if a few more people come around on a Sunday - it won't be so quiet!!

Right now I am in Fresno but weekends have always been quiet from what I have seen. Best to make plans on the weekend and enjoy one's self.

Too uninspired to write today, it's only a coincidence that it's Sunday.

I'm generally so hungover on Sundays the thought of producing eloquent well reasoned posts seems far to akin to death to be sensible...

Then again, that happens on Saturdays as well...

It's been this way since... very nearly Elliquiy's founding. Though I'm not sure how, as a ~20kpost/week forum, we have a right to complain about slowness. If it's a problem though, you can help raise Elliquiy's activity by getting more links to us. : )

I don't think the solution is getting MORE people to E! it's getting the people that are already members to be more active on Sunday!

I'm around because I have no life.  Though I do generally come on E at night, and I go to bed early on weekends because my boyfriend works opening shift and I'm his ride.  Most of his co workers are either mothers or teenagers, and god forbid a teenager get up before noon on weekend, so.... I'm stuck getting out of bed at 5am.

I run a D&D game in real life on Saturday, and sleep in on Sunday.  I'm on a lot though, waiting. *shrugs*

This reminds me of another person who complained about Elliquiy's lack of activity... they turned around and complained about all the new members! 

...I like the new members >_>
