Shows he is a workshy layabout.Done a survey of prospective new members that haven't joined have you? Or are you just pissing into your own pocket?
Imagine, Mr Integrity, that you are (preCOVID19) going into a supermarket. The aisles are long and the shelves are full of products way past their Best Before date. Now, Mr Integrity (because he hasn’t any) would you make that shop your regular shop? I doubt it. You will go to Twitter or FaceBook. GMods with attitude but little brain or common sense are another turnoff.
Clean up the front page, deepsix or merge moribund boards, rein in the rampant racism and sexism and OP will be the bustling, profitable supermarket with lots of return custom. Yes, it will take some advertising to get new visitors come have a look but advertising without a good cleanout and revamp of the place is useless.
I don’t know why I had to spell this out to anyone.
