No chebby thats why i used the word "MAYBE", maybe it is the recession or maybe it is not.
Actually, forum traffic is up around 50% on this time last year, both on page views and visits.

Just in case Onkyo have any bots scouring the Internet, a couple of 818's for a competition would go down well

I think of late we have been adopting other strategies – with some degree of success – to drive traffic to the site.
So Gel, you're missing that frustrating feeling of not knowing the winners of the latest competition?
Or seeing the winning goodies on sale on eBay within hours of the announcement?
Pioneer tv + LX85, Sony HW15 Proj, Cyrus DAC XP+/Mono X300/CDXTSE2/PSXRx2, Vienna Acoustics Beethoven Baby Grands and Maestro centre, B&W CM1 surrounds /PV1D (9.1), CA BD751, Virgin TiVo, Inspire Rega t/t, Benz Glider MC, EAR 834P phono amp; Slee Novo Headphone Amp.TQ Black.
That I don't miss! Just curious to know the reason for dropping them.
I don't think we've actively dropped them as in 'there will never be a competition again'; it's rather that we just haven't run one for a while.
Were the winners of the Bristol show competition ever announced? I havent seen it mentioned on the WHF website or the Bristol Sound & Vision website / facebook page. Just curious!
What strategies are they then andrew?
Here's one now
