Hi Richard

I completely agree with you on this. But it is something we really struggle with in our community. (I estimate that only 1 in 50 new members participate during their first visit. )

Do you have good examples of discussions for new members? I know that our members are very reluctant to engage unless they see a clear upside to come from it.
