    We have 2246 members, but I have only ever seen fewer than 30 that stay longterm. Why do people become members, and then never have over 1 or 2 posts. It's just weird.

    maybe they didn't like it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] alot of people just get on the forums to ask just one question about a vft they bought or something like that.. i guess others just forget about it.
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    I bet some just come to reply to a controversial topic or they want to add something somewhere and then forget about it. I've done it in other forums :P

    There are a lot of motivators. We don't all have the same mindset. Many people only have a VFT or whatever they can get at a garden center - and that's it. Then there are the true diehard hobbyists out there. A lot of people are students and this is one small segment of their lives. A couple of our teens recently had to readjust their priorities and the CP's were the first to go. I imagine some people were scared off by the complexity of the hobby or by an unfriendly response, too. Our debates DO get heated and emotional at times.

    I agree with earlier statements, some people may just get online for a post or two whenever they need to get info on a new plant. Even if that is true for me, i buy so much no one will know. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
