Tom I remember a time when we had 662 registered users and no sponsors........it's come a long way from that.
I'm on here and FB......and a small text list. I have trouble keeping up with those. I'd have to say that some on that list wish I would lose that number.
I've viewed your photos several times and really enjoy them. I don't know squat about photography so don't have anything to offer.....love the subject matter. I think it's something a lot of people enjoy.......even if we don't say it often enough.
The good doctors threads are an example of something that I personally enjoy very much but don't feel comfortable enough posting anything to them.......which might be taken the wrong way.
Morgan started this out as a hobby but always wanted it to grow and be self-sufficient.......a profit is not a bad thing for a man's that retired. Bless him for putting up with all the drama over the years........and good on him if he's figured out a way to keep it going. There was a time when it was all on him, pulled the money out of his own pocket to keep it going.
The audience is aging out but I really don't see a decline in content at all. We have lost several from that 662. But we're lucky enough to have some really good minds in here that are still willing to share. You could be right about growth.....I have no clue about membership trends. I "feels" a lot bigger nowadays.
