Comrades in Cardiff pointed me towards www.quora.com, which I hadn't heard of before and is well worth a look. Users post questions (on any topic), and the replies then get voted up or down by anyone reading them. It's easy to search for topics, and there are plenty of threads on revolutionary politics.

I would endorse that Mike.  I  have been on quora for a while but have not been that active lately (I tend to be active in spurts). Yet even so I have just checked my stats for the last 30 days - over 3 thousand views and 38 upvotes - wthout having written anything recently. People contiue to respond to posts I wrote a while back because of the way the system works.   Since joining I have had 70,400 views and 715 upvotes and thats just me.  Other comrades - there are 3 that I can think of - more active than me have undoubtedly accumulated much more impressive stats.

 

Quora is  massive and even if only 10-20 members started contributing on a regular basis providing links to this site I am certain you will discover quite a significant increase in activity here

Yes Quora is massive and getting bigger by the day.  What I like about the site is if your answer is found to be popular and upvoted by 4 users it is then automatically distributed  to thousands of users who have a declared interest in the subject matter.   For instance this:  https://www.quora.com/What-are-the-components-of-Marxism/answer/Brian-Johnson-429?__filter__=all&__nsrc__=1&__snid3__=1592250133  was sent to 1000+ users which means at least 3 users from Quora visited this site.

Currently, I have 1,537 answers and 196 followers of which at least four have used a link to this site in their answers.  But do the rough maths of 1,600 - 200 and its an approx for every 80 answers I've got 20 users interested in the socialist case. It follows if more socialists join Quora the more likely its users will get to know about the true socialist case.

472.8k answer views40.8k this month

Ask yourself do we have that many views in a month on this site?

Yours For Positive Socialist Activity

I endorse the approving comments about Quora.

I joined but don't contribute but i do get the notifications of the three Party's members who are busy on it and so i can help boost their presence by adding my upvotes. 

Others can take this easy option and thus help the party's campaign for increased exposure. Later they may well be tempted to be more involved. If time permits in the future i would seriously consider upping my activity on it.
