this environment is just too exclusive for my little noggin at present.

I would venture to say that the online BM community has long been
“fragmented” into hundreds, if not thousands, of boards.
I mean, think of the regional boards alone. Not to mention theme camps and village.
(Solo Collective has been known to have 20-30 boards, and I know
Gigsville has a shitload.)
I understand your point, though.
Post the feedback, make the suggestions public if you don't mind and let's fix this place.
change is tuff for some.

all of the less interested and other opinionateds have suggested at most a plonk button so they cant hear other points of views anymore.

That's NOT the case at all. The builder of that from-scratch BBS continues to stress that the whole concept of "invitations" is anathema to her beliefs. Everybody's welcome. But until she's done adding a few more basic functions it's hoped that it's not overwhelmed with new users. Some things will be quite awkward for a newcomer initially. For example the length of the threads will be a pain (especially on dial-up connections) because a paging function doesn't exist yet. Also there are some bugs, for example the sign-up function hasn't worked perfectly for some new people but others had no problem. Thus the server must be taken down periodically while she tests a new version. Generally it's not down for more than a few minutes at a time, but that can't be guaranteed during the on-going development process.

I've decided to check out harriet's board, I've felt that it was divisive to open another one, but like PJ said, if it works better, people will tend to use it. I don't think this eplaya's THAT broken, but it's worth checking out, I guess.

it really would be nice to see you stay and not leave over someone as small as i.
