Well Rich I kind of like it this way.
I belong to 3 other forums (all three by the same orginization, one each for ice fishing, hunting, and soft water fishing). When I joined the first there were around 600 members. Now there are over 12,000. I do not go there much anymore. I get time to go on this forum somewhere between once a day to once a week due to my busy schedual. On a forum like this one, I can keep up with a topic and interact with the other members in that topic. In very busy forums with thousands of members, topics can become outdated in a matter of hours. Keeping up in these forums becomes a full time job and I already have one of those.
