ian Wrote:I think the discussion has been good and the motivation for these ideas also seems to be positive, but if you read through all the replies you will realise that there are many different types of people that use forums in different ways. It's neither good nor bad, just different to the way you do. The usage and participation stats for this forum are the same for 99% of other forums. For some people it's part of their social life, others have questions, and others just want to read. There is nothing wrong with that and there is basically nothing you can do to change that. It's like walking into a bar and expecting everyone to want to talk with you. It's not going to happen however much you may want it, and it is the type of thing that drives people away. I don't know if this is a good example, but what if you were to pop in and visit a local church occasionaly and after a few visits they started putting pressure on you to become "more actively involved!" It's just not going to work. In time you may or may not decide to do that but it will only happen if it is your decision. People should just be comfortable to be here and participate or not in whatever way they want.

I hope this doesn't come across as just being negative. We are all thankful and grateful to you guys that put in the work to keep this forum operating and it is good to always be looking for ways to improve things.

Ian

totally agree with that.
