I have been thinking of using the Notices Manager feature to generate a welcoming message to members who have not posted in our forum for more that 90 days and who have more than 1,000 posts.
Our forum is going through a stagnant period ant the moment with only 6 - 8 regular posters. As admin I can see up to 20 members who are just looking, I would like to encourage these members to start posting again.
Has anyone else used this method to encourage members to resume posting? I am a little concerned that it may appear a little like "Big Brother" is watching and alienate them even more.

To put the 6 - 8 posters in to perspective, we only have 125 members all up. I figure it is easier to get existing members to start posting than to get new members.
