As you can easily tell, there hasn't been a Regulars List for a while now. This has been for two reasons:
1) Lack of activity. This is something we all know. The activity for Wi/Ht? hasn't been the same as it was back in 2008 when it was all bright and colourful to me. Now it's a real struggle to find any new potentials. Who knows, maybe there ARE good potentials out there but I haven't noticed them.
I think there are a few that pop in once in a while, but none that seem to really last very long.
2) Less time. With a full-time job, being a BBS mod and doing other things outside the house, I've just had less time and motivation to look through all the latest threads in Wi/Ht.
I feel the same way (minus the mod part) I've been more busy with real life things, and have been lacking in the Wi/Ht department. I also see a lot less things to answer than before. I think maybe there's a drop in new users. At least that would explain it.
With these two points, I'll have to step down with taking care of the Regulars List. The next thing will be whether to keep the list going or call it a day and just focus on the Member List only. With less potential users showing up, I feel it's alright to just concentrate on the Member List. However, if that's the case, I'd like to set some standards so we don't get users entering the Member List just for doing well for one month and then bugger off afterwards.
Hmmm... interesting step. If you do decide to concentrate only on the members list, I think the requirements are pretty good the way they are now. I guess it'll just be picking from users who have been around longer instead of the regulars list.
What are your thoughts? Do you want someone else to take care of the Regulars List or do you think we're better off just keeping it to the Member List?
In all honesty, if you would like to pass the torch, I would be more than willing and happy to try and carry it, although I know it can be a heavy burden, I'll give it my best shot.
