Indeed. People have lives outside this forum, and they have to deal with the troubles of the world (work, school, chores ect) usually before they deal with recreational and/or social things. When people get friends in another area of the internet (like another forum for example) they would tend to spend more of their freetime there sooner than with the land of strangers they just found (being us). This does not, however, mean that they will *never* test the waters here, and some people *do* come back after a while of being dormant.

If we go too strict and try to make it seem like we force people to post a certain amount of times before they're "accepted", it would simply *drive off* people from staying, and we'd actually *lose* potentially good members. The first impression is *everything*, and if we give a bad impression, people will leave us in disgust the very day they join. To be honest, I cringed my teeth at the way everyone joked around at the whole "one-post wonders" thing to some of the new members. As one or two users in those threads once stated, the fact we greeted them that way is most likely the exact reason why they didn't ever post again.

You're just saying that because you don't know how to counter my argument otherwise, which be default means I win.

I'm fairly certain that's the Pentagram, the symbol of Satanism.

As implied in my previous post, I do Nazi any true argument in Algreat's post.

*gets shot*
