    There are still some people left that would be nice to see pop in here. A couple dropped by today. I know some don't post often, but do consistently visit every few months. Hopefully they'll manage to find us.

    I think what people miss about forums that leads to mismanagement is that a forum is only as good as the community there. Members always come and go, but there's still a consistent community through it all.

    The forum admins and moderators lead things in the rules set and the way we post, etc, but still it's all about the community. Those now in charge of the old forum didn't see us as a community of people. They viewed us as a commodity for their business. They assumed that we'd always be there regardless of what actions they took. They were wrong.

    I think you're right vangogh. Moderators and admins can set the tone and police the spam and such, but the real heart of any forum is the members. If you don't appreciate them and listen to them and make the forum a welcoming place for them, they'll all move on.

    A forum is only as good as the people that post on it. The danger comes when those who own and run the forum forget that.

    How do you see a list of admins and moderators, it seems to only be a members list without an option to search by the type of member.
