Well, I get excited to get on here every day and wanted to know what people thought of our service
Well my hope is the same as yours CrazyBeans. But personally, i know there's dozens and dozens of these computer forums spread across the internet. Therefore, it can be difficult to grow the membership for any given forum (due to the competition).
I like it here and that's why i've stayed... been here for a few months now... and i like to participate regularly. But as for 'how knowledgeable' the members are... well i'll put this very delicately.
The mods... very knowledgeable - no doubt.
And the rest of the members, some are just beginners and post a lot of wrong answers. And I do mean wayyyy wrong... LOL. But we do have a fair mix of knowledgeable peeps too. IMHO - we could use some more seasoned IT people or experienced users.
I'll tell you that one of the first forums I ever joined on the net was about 4-5 years ago. I was a total newbie and didnt' even know the difference b/w Win9.x and an NT based OS. But I learned a ****load from that forum...looking back at my time there, i learned from some extremely knowledgeable and seasoned veterans who knew their stuff INSIDE & OUT... and not just about windows... they were knowledgeable in several aspects of computing.
Comparatively, this forum is young. In fact, it started only 2 years ago and several members here are still in their diapers... well maybe not that young but in their teens and still learning the basics.
I'm not necessarily trying to bash the forum in anyway whatsoever, i'm just giving you an honest man's opinion.
