Well, I've been here, reading thread after thread in this "Member& Staff" Forum, and I have to say......it's scaring me! Obviously, I had no real idea just what is/can be involved in running a Forum. ( I didn't even know there were PAID forums, or that people paid people to be mods etc!) Everything I have just read here has made me doubt my decision to have a Forum. I guess I am/was naive.............I have spent a lot of time, in a few forums. I thought I had a reasonable "grasp" of the behind the scenes stuff......boy, was I wrong! Or is it that I am/was not looking to create a forum for any other reason than to have a place where people who visit my site can go and "rabbit on" ? It seems that many here have a much higher goal........Google ranking/popularity/financial gain, etc.......whereas I hadn't even really considered those aspects in wanting my own forum. Please understand, I am NOT belittling/denigrating anyone here. I am just trying to come to grips with the realisation that my idea of a forum seems to be WAY off base....and that now, the whole thought of it really scares me.
