Hello, guys. I'm new to this forum. I was glad to find it, as I have been looking (casually and sporadically) for a coaster forum for years. But it seems to me that the volume of messages here is really low. It seems to me that there is one or two messages an hour on the whole forum at the most. I'm actually afraid to post too much for fear of a newbie clogging up the place. Is my perception wrong? Or if it is this slow, why is that? Doesn't CoasterForce have a huge number of members? Which would you say in response to this? A. Slow? This is normal, and I don't think it's particularly slow. B. Eh. It has ebbs and flows, and you just happened to have caught a quieter time. C. It picks up during the amusement park/riding season -- late Spring, Summer, and early Fall. Hang around. D. There are other competing coaster forums, and so this is a tight-knit community. E. CF used to be bigger, but we have shrunk over time. F. We're still slowly growing. These things take a long time. G. Are you only looking at the site forum? We have a robust and talkative community on Facebook (or some other form of social media). It only seems slow to you because you're stuck in an outpost. H. Shut up, Newbie. You haven't yet earned the right to question these things. Five strikes of the paddle! I. Other. Thanks!
