    What does WOOF mean to you survey

    As you would all be aware, contributions to discussions has been dwindling for a while now and Iím just trying to gauge our WOOF community to see if itís worth maintaining the site going forward.
    In the poll Iíve listed a number of options which will hopefully give me an idea about the likely participation to discussions going forward will look like and Iíd appreciate it if you can be as honest as you can with your responses
    A non-response would indicate that you donít plan on contributing to discussions going forward. The poll will allow multiple selections but please no more than two.

    And finally if you prefer, please contact me via the private message option with any suggestions, comments or thoughts.

    Just so you know I have number in mind (of WOOF members) that would make it viable and obviously if we have enough people interested and willing to participate then Iím more than happy to keep the site running.
    If we fall short of that number it becomes difficult to justify the time and effort to keep the site running.

    A lot of us, so many in fact, have been here from the early days so I know the site means a lot to many people but itís not as vibrant as it should be so thatís why Iím canvassing the WOOF community now


    Regards
    Gary

    I definitely don’t contribute as much as I would like and I will make an effort to get more involved. I view this site daily as I love to read and discuss everything bulldogs. You all do an amazing job on here please keep it going

    Guessing folks are waiting on some footy action before posting. During footy season and during trade season I would feel kind of like I had lost a limb (ok an exaggeration- as if I had lost my car keys) without woof.

    Re: What does WOOF mean to you survey

    I’ve struggled to post as much after my move to Vietnam and due to work prior to that.....

    It’s a great site, a good positive start to the season will hopefully have it humming again.

    Re: What does WOOF mean to you survey

    I will contribute a bit more once footy season starts.
    I'm here on a daily basis I would check before work sometimes if time permits and I always check in after work and weekends.
    Being up north this site is a life line to the Bulldogs because you read Bulldogs in the news up here there's Canterbury left of the title.
    I would miss the VFL reports and AFLW reports so I would be force back to Big Footy a site I haven't been to since I stubble onto this one in 2009.
    It will be a sad sad day if this site closes. I'll be left with trolling google news and low quality reporting with no depth or knowledge.

    No one'll love you as you are
    But I won't let them break me down to dust
    I know that there's a place for us
    For we are glorious.Ē

    Re: What does WOOF mean to you survey

    This is the only website I check every day.

    I only contribute when I think I have something to contribute that hasn't already been sent (unless I just need to vent).

    I know within my family there are multiple people both members of this forum and not who enjoy its content and the discussion it provokes.

    This is easily the best source of information on the Bulldogs for anything ranging from official articles to obscure opinions about rookie list prospects.
    I should leave it alone but you're not right

    Re: What does WOOF mean to you survey

    I think people see the site as primarily for discussing the Bulldogs and footy and therefore it dies down a bit in the off -season. When the footy season starts again, hopefully it will ramp up once more.

    I don't bother with any other footy site and can't stand discussions on facebook. Twitter to me is more of a news feed from Media and the club and a few others.

    Re: What does WOOF mean to you survey

    I post a bit but like others I'll be more active when there is more happening during the season
    Probably get a better idea of activity a few weeks in
    If you kicked five goals and Tom Boyd kicked five goals, Tom Boyd kicked more goals than you.

    Re: What does WOOF mean to you survey

    i really appreciate the site and check in as regularly as I can.

    Unfortunately, my ability to contribute has been impacted over the past 3 or 4 years due to other facets of my life.

    This also means I get to less footy than previously and makes me more reliant on the contributions of others.

    I will continue to do what I can to maintain a worthwhile contribution.

    Re: What does WOOF mean to you survey

    Like others I'm time poor and (I have now made it my New Years resolution) to make more effort to add to some of these threads. I truely understand and appreciate the efforts and time that running and maintaining these type of site require.

    Your passion, thoughts, knowledge and insights are highly rated and don't go unrecognised. A huge thank you to you, the other mods and everyone who make it a must go to to have a read and enjoy the banter, discussion, highs and lows of our beloved club and players.

    Re: What does WOOF mean to you survey

    I won't try to justify my decline in output, as I'm sure many have similar competing demands on our time.
    Whilst I check the site out daily during the off-season, regular contributiins would come at the expense of attending to other priorities.
    During the season, I'll be a consistent contributor again, in and around the actual games.
    I love the site, but completely understand that it needs to be vibrant enough a place to justify the effort required to keep it going.

    Re: What does WOOF mean to you survey

    To me, this site is the best source of INFORMED news, opinion, discussion and debate about the dogs. Iím on here most days in the off-season but find my interest in footy in general w little lower at this time of year.

    When the season was on itís the best source of inside info and club news and getting amongst the conversation is great!

    Plus itís just nice to be somewhere that everyone loves the dogs as much as I do.

    Re: What does WOOF mean to you survey

    I check the site every day (sometimes even before my emails at work) and would be lost on where to get my Bulldogs fix without it.

    I used to post a lot but kind of felt I wasn't actually contributing anything and eased off (I was also a teenager and matured/grew up). I'll generally make my point or weigh in if there's a debate I have an opinion on or feel like challenging someone's position.

    Re: What does WOOF mean to you survey

    WOOF is great. Enjoy reading all your contributions and do post now where I think I am able to on a thread.

    I occasionally start some interesting threads for discussion and have a big involvement in setting up the set threads during the season.

    Will probably increase my posting rate once the season really starts getting underway.
