Default Is Newyou still useful today? Or do we shut down?

Hi all,
Back a month or so, the site went off the air for a day or so. This was because it costs money to keep it online. Not a whole lot of money, but one has to wonder if Newyou has passed its Use By date. Asy stepped up and brought it back online - we plan to revisit the subject again at year end..... "To keep or not to keep - that is the question" !!

Though I love the joint, I can't see a lot of sense in having Asy continue to fund it if there are so few around. So let's hear from you....

I see member names popping in for a look, then they go away again without posting. Are you getting SOMETHING from the site on these visits (looking up info and such)? I hope so. If you are looking to converse with friends, let's hear from you too, and your friends. With such light activity as we have had this year, keeping it online becomes WAY less of a priority.

So, over to you all - does Newyou go the way of the dodo? It served its purpose ten-plus years ago, and for some years after that, but is it doing it today? I'm not sure it is.....

Your call, alumni - do we stay, or go?

Koh

Please stay! I personally still get so much from this site even if it is just browsing. I started by Cohen journey in 2010 and this site has been amazing for all those years.

I also find the site really useful for looking up information. I am waiting on my new Cohen's plan to arrive (second time round, first time was 2011) I am planning on starting a diary once it arrives and I get my new membership number....

Hi Trasee,
Good luck with the journey. I hope it is going well for you. When you get your Plan, just go ahead and start a diary in the New Diaries area. Let us know how things are going eh?

The Cohen office in my country has closed. This is the only site I come back once a while to read and find inspiration and info. Would love it to continue on. ❤️ Though I donít post much, I love reading the stories and recipes

Default Re: Is Newyou still useful today? Or do we shut down?

For new folk joining, and/or for those wanting to find "the best topics" according to our members, here is a neat trick.

First, select a forum you wish to fossick in (e.g. "Discussion on Cohens Lifestyle Program"), then click the word "Rating" just below the dark blue bar and all the starred posts will pop right up to the top. To return to normal, click "Last Post" (right next to Rating) and the sequence of the forum goes back to Normal i.e. the topic with the latest post in it comes up to the top again.

That's one way to get to the really good stuff quickly. If you FIND a topic (or thread) that you think SHOULD have some stars, look on that dark blue top bar for the words "Rate Thread" and a dropdown list will allow you to add from 1 to 5 stars.

PLEASE NOTE - it takes more than one vote to give a topic its stars, so don't be discouraged if YOUR vote didn't give it the stars - others would need to agree with you before it is promoted. Or, your vote might be the final one that clinches the deal and the topic (thread) then has its stars - it happens, just don't depend on it happening.

Thanks,
Koh

It is for me! thank you. Just thinking of signing up for my 3rd go round, but I think its been over 10 years since my last attempt, or thereabouts. Glad to still find the forum here.

Also me too!!!! I just returned after a very long time and it is comforting to see it is still here for those that are curious about restarting their old plans or sending along newbies that want to take a look!

Hi there MS Jiggles,
Yeah, still one or two "old faces" still around, but a lot of echoes in here too when you yell !!

Hugs,
Koh
