I couldn't think of a better place for this thread, so here it goes, sorry if it's in the wrong place.
Just off the spur of the moment signed up to Craftworld Eldar (another forum if you're not in the know), and it made me think. I've signed up to about 10 or 11 different forums, and I'm only active on 2 (even then, I'm on and off the other one). Subsequently, I got thinking again, this time about why this is the site I'm most active on.
...could it be the loving community?
...could it be the plethora of forums?
...could it be the nice Staffers?
Just wondering. Any ideas?
we have a huge psychic beacon built on top of a small flat block in Glasgow. When you put in your details while registering we triangulate your position then start bombarding you with the psychic energy. the longer you stay on L-O the more saturated your mind becomes. as a result you can't bring yourself to part with the forum.
other supporting measures is that L-O is by far the largest of the non specialised forums such as Dnet which is dark elf oriented or bolter and chainsword which is space marine oriented. its a forum that provides pretty much everything,

I put it down to subliminal messaging
Everything you have been told is a lie!
I was brought to the sight by word of mouth and have stuck around at first because it was handy help and later to help others and post new ideas for criticism.
I also find the rep system to be very effective at keeping the more capable thinkers around (as otherwise they would leave as they have very little to gain. Rep however makes them feal warm and fuzy/high and might/powerful/smart/needed.). This in turn keeps the less capable thinkers around as their are many capable ones ready to help them.
That and the psychic beacon.
Rep to the good is all very well but the people you want to attract are those who don't have an account yet, not those who already know the sites' great...and I mean, you have loads of rep.

I first started because I played FB regularly
Then I stopped playing so much but stuck around cos I was a mod
Now I like to visit to see what plugins and features the forum has, I think it's what makes LO head and shoulders above the rest - the amount of things people can do on the site
What I particularly like about the site is the emphasis on good community, including behavior and well written posting. Poor posting on other sites bothered me, and I believe that it leads to a less mature community. I also think the rep system is a great idea for keeping people involved, and that having chat set up is great.
I actually think a lot of it comes down to a few good members (no, not me ). A lot of forums are just that, a place to talk. On LO you sign up and suddenly find you're friends with people like Kuffy or Karmoon. Sure other forums you can have a good conversation and meet some nice people but some of the 'kings of LO' keep you coming back.
And no, Kuffy and Karmoon no ego trip for you! (just casual lines like that are often missing from other forums.)
