My site seems to be full of socially awkward members. It's really aggravating. Last month I invited a noob who posted over a dozen times but no one really engaged her in conversation. She said it was boring, took her avi down and left. I invited another member back yesterday and she even posted some pics and finally put up a proper avatar up for once but she got no replies to her picwhore thread so she probably ain't coming back either. I invited a cool dude yesterday but he lurked for awhile and left because no one was online at the time. I can't always get noobs to stay because my regulars rarely engage them in conversation. They are too busy flirting with each other in the Anonymous forum or talking in the chat box. Now I'm wondering if the chatbox and the anonymous forum is doing more damage than good or maybe it's because my members are antisocial. I thought I solved the chatbox problem by making it a paid usergroup feature only. I never thought the anonymous subforum would be a problem either cause that's only for proof pic members. These two features are my paid and verified members favorite features so I can't just take them away. Each time I do (and I've done so before in the past) members get upset and leave and some never come back. I'm basically just gonna have to deal with it this time around.
