That just about tells the story. Peoole need something new and intresting to keep them occupied. I think not realising Genisis early on was a big strategic mistake on part of NI.
High numbers of posts in the blog as well as forums started showing up in anticipation of the product. Later on the delivery issues drove traffic. The only way NI can keep renewed interest is when companies and individuals make software for adam. Which is why NIH and Tabletroms has traffic.
I think this friday we had only 3 posts. A bit of it is the forum's fault. When the initial few people had trouble with their Adam's they literaly used to scour every thread and try to twist every ones experience of owning Adam to mirror their their own. This really set the tone for the forum. It appeared that the only thing going on here was complaining and bashing. These couple of people cost NI a lot in lost sales may have even made a big dent in NI's bottom line.
Forum Admins should not only weed out offensive posts but also ensure that forum is balanced and builds a community. I think a couple of people in this thread and the person maintaining the spreadsheets did more for the forum than the Admins realise.
