porschechat died in the arse. best bet for purely porker chat is pelicanparts or rennlist. pelican has an aussie section and the technical sections are very good.

Yeah, I mean this place would die in the arse too if the forum was all I set it up for, it's just odd that we get so much traffic from people looking for porsche/lotus/ferrari/etc forums, but it's like a dance floor, nobody wants to go out there alone.  This place is still young and started for secondary purposes, most of the active forums out there started due to a need from existing folk - for eg Aussie Elises had a tech mailing list with about 200 members going back nearly 10 years so it was a natural progression. 

The biggest thing this placed is used for is the event planning, I haven't looked at the stats in a while, but last time I checked the private planning areas had around 60% of the total activity.

Well, he tried to set it up about 6 months ago, I gave him a bunch of info on how to go about it but it was never going to take off - you can't just setup forums and expect people to go there and talk.  He's just recently re-released it with a new forum software (same as fchat), but I don't think that will help it, look at some of the really crap sites out there with gazillions of active traffic - I'm a member of an X1/9 forum that hasn't changed since the late 90's, but we all love it!!!

Basically, for all the legitimate aussie porsche traffic we get here, people simply don't bother to ask their questions or chat because there's not already a bunch of stuff/people, catch-22.

I checked it out tonight. It's the first time I've posted there in ages. There's only about 5 regular posters. The Sporting Car Club forum has a better chance of success and that's not very lively.
