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.
