Yeah and before it seemed like there was 3 girls posting for every guy, and now it seems like the ratio is reversed. Which would seem to indicate that the girls are less comfortable posting here now.
I'm not sure which of the following are cause and which are effect, but I have some observations that go along with that. I don't necessarily have a problem with any of these, and I'm quite used to most of them from other internet forums, but they are things I've noticed.
-HF seems like a less "friendly" place, before new members were welcomed, but now if they ask a question that's been asked before the get a dozen replies telling them what an idiot they are.
-There are more cliques as well, which is natural as the forum grows because there are always some people you will get along with better than others, but it seems like it's hard for new members to break into one unless they start making an epic number of posts.
-There are a lot more non-sequitur posts. And I'm not just talking about veering off topic.
-Read the first few pages of WAYWT and it's very encouraging, and compare that to what often happens now. Now this change I am personally ok with as I enjoy the fashion discussion, but it can be intimdating to new people.
I'm sure there's more, but this post is already longer then I intended. What I don't want to see is this place turning into SuFu, but I kind of feel like it's happening.
