"un-responsive" members ....

I have no idea where to post this observation .... (I find the structure of the Forums somewhat confusing & visually cluttered )

By chance, i have just "browsed" several member profiles in my own city, at random, and *each* had a *low* "responsiveness" score. I doubt that is accurate, as the members seem enthusiastic ( but who really knows ..?)

Is there away to determine the general level of response, and if ( as I suspect) it is "low", is it doing any good, is it worthwhile keeping ? One possible explanation is, that is not easy to see on one's own profile ( against a blue background, I think ?)

FWIW : I have found it less easy than to navigate the Forums *back* to my own posts (as for others' posts..) ....a "My Posts" Tab at the profile page would be sooo good ...for the moment, I have placed a "url key" on my own profile : ugly, but I hope functional.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Another idea for Feedback ; the FB presently lists Member Name [only]. it would be great if it listed "place" too : " Paris" "New York" , "Twin Peaks " " Little Rock" etc.... this is fairly conventional in "Testimonials", which is what FB is , after all, to my mind it looks slightly odd without ....

I realise of course that every change involves a huge volunteer effort in coding....

Its not really working as

Its not really working as intended I think...

I recently asked a fellow member here a question via message. Not about hosting me.
Got a reply back. Nothing that I needed to reply to. And voila... 75% responsiveness.

Do enough of those and your responsiveness percentage will obviously be low.

Helo

this reply is about your first sentence (I have no idea...).
lately I have been reorganizing the forums. and made some changes in them.
I reduced number of similar titled forums. I thought this way user has less difficulty to choose the right one.

if the main purpose of this post is discussing about "responsiveness" feature then we can place it in "website help and support" because it is about website features.
if you propose or ask for a new feature you can post it in "wish list" forums .wish list is a sub-forum related to "website help and support"

anyway, If you've got any suggestion about organizing the forums, please kindly post it in https://www.warmshowers.org/node/43267 .

now ,I am going to move this post to "Website help and support" forum.

best regards,
the life

responsiveness

I have also noticed that my 'responsiveness' is 50% although I always answer an contact. I think if the person contacting you gives a phone number and you reply by phone or text, then you get a 'non-responsive' result as you didn't use the WS site.
Probably makes the responsiveness value worthless as an indicator. I will ignore it anyway unless someone has had tens of requests and not replied.
