Had a long-time member PM me today and tell me to delete his account because he couldn't handle the negativity anymore. Have also had a few people making similar claims. A few members have left here and there over the last year for similar reasons. I of course hate to lose members. However, this board has always been shaped after my own view of how I think fan message boards should be, and that's a place to express yourself. To be a fan and vent. We have pumpers, we have negators, but we all share the same love for Florida. Personally, I DESPISE other boards that shut down negativity and force you to toe a certain line. It's always seem so Nazi-ish to me. Saying that, I'm wide open for suggestions on how to improve the state of the board. Perhaps there are things that need attention that I'm not seeing. I couldn't be happier with this core group of people that feel like family to me. However, I'm always looking to expand the board with new members. Page views and activity have continued to climb year by year, but the membership itself hasn't grown as fast as I'd like. In other words, we keep growing lurkers by the day but none of them want to sign up. Hey lurkers out there: do us a favor and make an account and come into this thread for a post or two. We won't bite. Give us some honest feedback. Discuss.
