Lots of new members
« on: January 13, 2011, 01:14:34 PM »
Maybe it's just me, but it feels like there have been a lot of new folks joining DC just recently.

Anyone else think the same? Are there any stats to prove it, or am I just being subjective?

And, if there are more new joiners, does the panel think it's due to NANY, or just a generally higher profile of DC nowadays?

Discuss.  :)

I think it's NANY bringing in the new members, and i'm thrilled to see it!

It really is fun when we have new people joining and posting on the forum -- we need some new voices to keep us all from falling into our respective ruts!

Welcome to all our new members  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

And don't be shy about posting -- we are a friendly little family here, and everyone is welcome -- you don't have to be an expert on anything to join our discussions, just bring some good spirit and jump right in!

ps. there are some nice threads at the top of this forum section, and they are a great way to introduce yourself.

Why is it that when a new member joins only to berate the sign-up method/license key method, we have people who decide to pick on him? While I can understand the frustration, and I understand the opposing view, do we really need to have the same comments appear time after time, regardless of how the original poster comes across? Wouldn't it be better to just let mouser handle this and move on? Just a thought

Why, does this happen a lot? I've never seen it before.

Check out most of the topics similar to the one you linked to, they all have a similar pattern.
