We have a decent amount of registered users but alot of them do not really post - not sure why.

Yes, lots and lots of registered "users" and hardly anyone talking! Weird. Wonder why?

Perhaps if we had a place-based forum where folks can connect with others in their town / city? I'd like that!

People come, they post, they get discouraged at the lack of a reply and wander off. I found my way to Reddit (/r/asktransgender for me), and it's great, but I still check in here from time to time (I try to remember at least once a day) and check recent posts.

I tried having geographically based chat rooms and no one posted in them.  From watching over this site, what I'm seeing is that most people post and want others to respond to their posts but they do not go around and reply to other's posts....

Does Reddit have alot of people coming in and giving others a hard time?

There is alot of there out there in forum land!  that is why I started this one - to offer a really safe place for people to connect.  I have found it so frustrating that I can't get a buzz going though.  Maybe I need to try an incentive program of some sort ......

oh dear yes, Reddit is rife with MRA's and haters, as a feminist I simply can't go there

I've not seen much of that on /r/asktransgender. There may be more on other subreddits, but the LGBT ones I visit are pretty much devoid of any sort of hate.
