I have just been looking through the statistics for the amount of new members that joined in April of this year. Fifty six new members, only seventy seven posts made by new members of which forty five were made by one person.
Also their seems to be less people willing to answer questions from new members. I think this is down to the fact that a lot of newbies are not looking through the old threads to get the answers they require and are just relying on the other members to come up with the same old answers.
I personally think that the site is suffering because of this.
It would be good if newbies looked at one of the new members threads and used them to introduce and tell us a bit about themselves. That way they would gain the trust of the other members and may even get some stalking out of it!
Can any other members think of ways to kick start the old girl because its getting rather stale on here.
Getting on the site and simply saying 'I want to go stalking, who is going to take me' or 'Is a 243 Sako better than a 308 Howa' Well it isn't very stimulating is it.
You get back what you put in after all. Otherwise we may as well just stand around the counter of the local gun shop talking the usual ********.
Sorry I say what I see.
