Boosting membership.

Post by Flip on Thu May 30, 2013 1:46 pm

First topic message reminder :

Hi guys as we struggle around the 40 mark for members is it about time to go on a membership drive to open up the Forum to new members?
I have just Tweeted details of our new Forum to my followers, why not do the same with yours or can you use any other means to wake up the Italian Loving Community to the Best Italy Forum yet (Probably)

Well Hello!

I too found you all from Geotherm's note.

I too hate their new format.

So anyway, I was Neil there, and on Anastasia's forum which I greatly miss.

Seem to be many old names to fight with - though I note everyone is currently quite polite.


Any way, we too are in Tuscany with July 13th as the middle weekend.

How can we get tickets for the Bocelli concert - if there are any left?

TIA

Neil

Hi Neil, L'uomodellaluna, and welcome to Paradise. Only  saints and angels are allowed here, so nobody fights. This does not mean that we cannot have polite discussions. Twisted Evil Even heated ones Twisted Evil
Enjoy!

Well Neil you can go online to book Bocelli in Pisa, but if you're a Rocker like us get yourself over to Lucca for the Summer Festival we have Leonard Cohen 9th July, Bryan Adams 10th July, Nick Cave 11th July, Thirty Seconds to Mars 13th July and The Killers 17th July, many more like Neil Young, Mark Knopfler, Earth,Wind & Fire.......

Yes, I saw that as well.
Could like the  Knopfler  concert.
Would love the Cohen one.
SWMBO bought me the video of his London concert for Christmas.
I'm old enough to remember him first time around, so that gives you some idea of my age!

Hi L'uomodellaluna/Neil and welcome. Good to see a lot of the names from the other forum appear.

There are still some tickets for Bocelli 13th July, also the dress rehearsal on the 12th July on the buy and sell sites, but these seem to be a lot more expensive than the original tickets. We bought ours in January when the date was announced.
I also fancied the Cohen concert but thought it had sold out almost immediately.

Hiya Neil - here I am in yet another incarnation!  D'ya like it?

You can fight with me anytime ya like - take no notice of Mother Superior as we allow her to pray for us from time to time and she goes to bed straight after Vespers so we can play on into the night.

Correction! Mother Superior stays up after Vespers as she has to recite the Compline! She has to pray a lot so that we do not end up having another case of the Sicilian Vespers and Paradise Lost. So you can have fun within reason and do not bring hatchets, knives and assorted weaponry, as you can hurt yourselves. Naughty children!
Say your prayers and ask for forgiveness before going to bed.

I hate being told what to do so I'm gonna be very naughty in a bit and it just might give Mother Superior a fatal heart attack.

I will pray for her soul (tomorrow). affraid

Indeed.  You're very welcome danielsmith 147.  I hope you spend many happy hours here.

May I enquire whether you're a snooker player or does the 147 have another connotation?

I think that this is quite normal. Out of the 3500+ members of the old forum, I would say that the large majority never posted, not even to say "hello".

As of today, if you Google 'Italy Forum', we are there..............on page 4 Shocked

Still that's a whole heap better than not appearing at all!  What do we need to do to advance to page 1?

Think that is normal Ghiro. Sure they will post if they want to know anything. Always nice though if they just say hello.
They are all welcome in here, unless spammers .......lol
