    Default Has Rowdy Talk Grown

    I've been on RT for a long time and I see the same old Screen Names, Has this site grown at all, I looked at a few other sites an their members nearly doubled.

    This is a great way to get people involved but is it being used as such?

    Default Has Rowdy Talk Grown

    It is still growing but Iíve noticed that many of the newer folks are lurkers and not active posters. Additionally, some of the older members have also reverted to lurking. Some feedback I have gotten is that a lot of the threads become hijacked and also a few folks have become disproportionately over bearing.

    Cal, that feedback is spot on. I would add that many of us don't want to engage with some who are super passionate which is great in supporting our team, but differ in opinions from ourselves.

    Differing opinions are welcome; groupthink sucks. We will continue to work towards an environment where that feels welcome; Iím always looking for feedback.

    I will admit that I am more of a reader than a participant, but it doesn't mean I don't feel engaged with everyone. I can say that I read EVERY single thread, with a few that I just glance over, but I always make it a point to look at every one of them.

    I don't like it when people get trolled or when someone is called an idiot or such just because they don't understand or agree with someone else. That tends to make me tune the topic out. But fortunately it doesn't happen all the time.

    And as the forum grows I am sure the number of people that act out in an immature way will increase. But I am confident the number of well spoken, intelligent and mature posters, willing to make great contributions, will increase even moreso, making this forum even better than it already is.

    I, for one, am glad to be a part of the regulars here, even if most everyone doesn't even know who the hell I am.

    Thanks, Cal, for keeping everyone in line and making this a fun place to talk about our Runners.

    Why does it matter? This isn't a money making operation for CAL.

    I guess you aren't aware of all the pay for play porn being hosted on the backend as a Rowdytalk subdomain.
