I felt the same way back when I joined. And, alas, it has not improved. I did get some information from one of the moderators. The big problem is that the owner of the site seems to have abandoned it. Probably very difficult for the remaining moderators to do anything. I am on a several other forums but this one would be my favorite if we could get active members onboard again. There is still great content out here. The Bees/Wasps section seems to be the only real active area on the site today. So, hopefully, it can get brought back to life.
