It just that volume of activity that keeps many busy printers away from both LetPress and BriarPress, though on LetPress the percentage of off-topic discussion is a big factor. 24 hours without a post there only happens when the server is down, and people will invariably send test posts. Not so here, and on other lists a week may pass without activity.

Of the two dozen Universal platen owners I know, only three are active in any of the letterpress lists I follow. (Another dozen are owned by David Rose, whose "Colt's Armory Fans & Enthusiasts" doesn't seem to be anything more than a static webpage.) Unfortunately, I don't see any other way of encouraging dialogue among the target audience.
