    I wanna hear from newcomers

    Why is it that all these newcomers joining the bulletin board are not getting envolved and posting something. What is the use of Registering as a user wen if you are just going to read the posts you can do that without registering

    \NEWCOMERS LET'S HERE FROM YOU!!!!
    GO THE DRAGONS!

    I'm sure thats totally correct.
    Most people who have asked reasonable questions, have received reasonable responses. For example look at the questions asked in the arbitering threads.
    Its only when someone gets on with an aim to push a personal or possibly hidden agenda that they get attacked.
    Either that or they act like a goose.

    mr parkEr

    as an infrEquEnt postEr, i can assurE thE morE prolific among you that thE rEason for minilmal posting has nothing to do with ridiculE of nEwcomErs who havE kEyboard afflictions, spElling afflictions <likE hErE whEn hEar is mEant>, bullying, lack of logic, typE-bEforE-think, nor boring add-ons. as wE know, such problEms don’t hold back othEr postErs.

    testing time, a contest we ran along time ago got 700 or 800 contestants. The strategy section of chesskit has 10's of thousands of members. Play Chess has about 1500 members and Play Chess is coming back soon thanks to VPSColo.
