New Member Notice Discussion

Re: New Member Notice Discussion
I am not totally against screening but it should be minimal. As someone already posted, if you limit membership to just active members, all you will have is a cosy little club and surely that is not what we are about. As Russell said, usually only 10% of members on a forum are active. That is just the way it is. Trying to get people to be more active by whatever means is usually pointless. People will participate if they are that way inclined, or they need to or they want to. Some people will actively read every day but at this stage feel they have nothing to contribute. Others may lurk here for a year and then decide to buy a Syncro and become active. For those of you whose business revolves around Syncro's the more members, active or inactive, the better. There must be lots of guys who never post but know who you are by being on this forum. Yes there are some downsides regarding people being able to access ideas etc. For example. pictures and details of my tanks are all over here and some body might just decide to copy that for himself or his business. That is impossible to stop and usually if you try you just damage yourself further by cutting yourself off from other possible clients. If your workmanship is good and prices reasonable you have little to worry about in any event. Lets not be paronoid about this and also lets accept that not everyone will be active members all the time. We should be an open, accepting, happy community, just like the vehicles we support! VW is the "peoples car" after all. This is not a forum for Soviet era Zils or Gaz's!
