Most people create new accounts to conceal identities.  That’s why many of the long posts are the first posts.

I’ve noticed that too lately there’s alot of drama happening on the hive lately. I think it has pushed away many bees away which sucks. 🙁

I think another issue is that people, like myself, are sometimes more lurkers than posters. Then, when advice is needed, you’ve already seen that people give good advice so you come to the boards. I had posted a bit (clearly I don’t have a huge amount of posts), but one of my early ones was advice about something emotional. Just my 2 cents.

@CaliHoya:  I notice that a lot too.  If you go onto their profile you can see when they’ve been a member since.  Normally they’ve been a member for a long time and just not posted.

@CaliHoya:  that’s true…. I go through phases of posting and then lurking…. but I HAVE noticed an influx of newbees posting very deep topics.

I guess they just need somewhere to vent and have nowhere else to go… which is essentially what this community was created for.  I don’t think it’s hurting anything.  I’m sure a lot of them lurked here for a while.  Even if they haven’t, they just need to get things off of their chest.

Eh, I don’t always pay attention to those type of posts though unless I really know the person that has been on here or they put that they’re under a bee alias.

My first ever post here (not under this name) was an emotional post. I’d been reading for months, but was always too shy to respond. But then I hit an issue I really needed to vent about and wanted unbiased thoughts. People were so kind to me that I decided to make a real account. I made a ‘real’ one because I wanted to be able to talk freely and post pictures and give small details without worrying. The internet’s forever and I don’t really want my emotion fueled rants to be connected to me 🙂

Like calihoya, I also lurked for awhile, and saw that this was a remarkably nice community for an internet forum. Then when a personal topic came up that I didn’t know anyone that had gone through that experience, I tried WB.

When I first found the Hive I definitly needed a place to turn.  Though I’m pretty sure my post didn’t cause drama.  Some of these new posters may never return, like myself on other boards (is that bad etiquette?), because once that issue is dealt with they don’t need the board.  Personally I see WB as a community but I know I’ve seen other boards as a self help / FAQ type place.  You know?
