As many of you know, communities such as DaniWeb thrive on a constant source of new blood into the community. Existing members lose interest, personal lives take over, and even the most dedicated of members tend to stick around for a limited amount of time. The hard part is welcoming the newbies and turning them into long-lasting members, at least as fast as existing regular members drift off. Otherwise, the community dies for good.
What could we be doing better to encourage newbies to return and not be one hit wonders after their first or second post? It's a very serious concern right now to ensure the future of DaniWeb.
