If what i saw is correct there are only 4770 members.... we need more memebers, there has to be more canucks out there. how do we recruit more people?? Im only concerned because more people = more information, more information = good.

I havent even noticed the low member count, there is always a wealth of information when you need it, the BST section is fairly well populated, and for the most part all the members act like gentlemen/women. To me the forum feels just right.

Quick question, I'm actually curious. When you go and visit other forums or websites, maybe through a google search or you know the website and visit them for reviews, news etc... Why don't you register for their forums?

What is it that stops you? Is the process of signing up to annoying, takes to much time, you don't know they have a forum?

Well, I admit the reviews on the site are great, but if after countless searches in the forums you cannot find the information and the only option is post a thread asking for opinions and help, it seems a real slow process... I've gone out side this site numerous time to ask for information. so i guess what id liek to see is more active members in the forums (its already Good but could be better) there is always room for improvment

^ Im an active member in several forums. I sign up to what ever one has information i regard as useful.

Signing up is really annoying to me (seriously, I avoid it like the plague), some have very strict new member rules ([H]!!! It's almost impossible for a new member), and some it is hard to be taken seriously when you're a "newbie".

I usually don't sign up if I see a bunch of flame wars, fanboy posts, etc. As an example if I had come along here right around the beginning of the 470/480 posts then I would have looked somewhere else. Other times it is just a first impression sort of thing.

As for here I guess it was a Canuck sort of thing, I liked computers, etc. and I am a Canuck. Oh side note, Go Canucks Go!!

More members != better.

Personally I like the fact that HWC has a rather small amount of active posters.

ATI/NVIDIA wars happen pretty much at most forums when a new GPU arrives>

Having "only" 4770 members, this is a very active forum.

And never let GPU fanboys (ATI RUL3Z) spoil your desire to post anywhere. They (we and I) are the worst kind of fanboys on the planet.
