Take me for example  :darkling :D

More serious  :bigwig Yes, we're not bursting of activity; and sometimes, it seems that we need to galvanize you to get you back to the forum; and unfortunately, I'm missing some elder members.

But all in all, I think, we're a great community. We can discuss about Watership Down on a very high level. We have virtually no spam. And the people, who are active here are posting quantitative valuable content!

Did I forget something? Yes: We can discuss all kind of Watership Down media without falling together by the ears.  :clover

This had to be spoken :cheers

My thanks go to all members, the Junior Owsla and the Council of Chiefs!

This forum is by far the best forum I'm on, and I'm by no means sugarcoating it to impress anyone. Everyone seems so... chill? I guess it's such a small community (like, around ten active members) that your actions are known to all and not obscured by the immensity of a large community. And yeah, the members are really cool too.

huh

This is the only forum I keep visiting, even though I don't have time for such matters anymore. Do I need to say more?

Well said, Cyn!

I really do prefer small forums because everyone knows each other. It's more personal. And this place is a lot cleaner and friendlier than other online communities I have seen :)

Thank you, Darkling, for making this thread! :D

Yeah, I was in another small community of less than 10 people a few years ago, and we all knew each other pretty well and had nice conversations. Since then, however, probably over 100 people have shown up bringing some good old Internet drama, and now I'm the most seclusive person there. Most of the original people have more or less disappeared as well. We still talk to each other, but never as much as before. Needless to say, I preferred the time we were few.

I like this forum a lot because it reminds me of that time and everyone here is friendly to each other. Hopefully as more people come here I won't be compelled to leave due to drama. I hate drama. But right now, everything is perfect here.

Despite being a small community it is very nice. There are so many communities for all, but this Watership Down is my favorite and the only one in which I am, in a forum.   :blackavar
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

Sure, the community here is small, but that's one of the reasons why I like it.  It isn't so small that nobody posts, and it isn't so big you can't keep up with everything.  The members are very friendly and, as :darkling pointed out, there isn't any spam and the discussions are great.

I hope Fiver's Honeycomb won't shut down anytime soon.

We won't! As long, as we have such great members - as long, as we have such a great team - as long, as Hawkbit stays away from here  :hawkbit2

I see it coming:

I always say if you treat people with respect, show some kindness, you will have a good forum.  Its hard to believe many places can't pull this off and let stuff just go rampant (or missed).  We do have good people here because they follow those simple ideals. :)

Well said. Show respect and kindness and others will have more motivation to show you kindness and respect in return. That, in turn, helps keep everybody invested in the forum. :)
