If you don't want to give back to the community by being a part of the community, then you can pay for membership to get access and support the club financially. That's your choice. But you are missing out by not being a part of what we have. A lot of people who previously didn't like forums or just didn't like "chatting" are now some our top posters. Give the community a chance and we might change your mind.
I have no problems communicating, just saying my preference is avoidance. That's how I am. So I'll be around reading and talking ... I'm not online much but.

5000 members is surprising and 80% of those active in the last 6 months is surprising.. Good stuff!
How many Elgrands was it said are in the UK (read it a while ago on forum and think it was somewhere around 6000)? If there are 'only' 6000 Elgrands in the UK then along with the other figures it seems most current owners are active members of the forum, which is great! Most vehicle specific forums couldn't boast anything like those sort of membership figures, probably due to both this being such a great forum and Elgrands being a 'niche'/import car (more need for people to talk to others with the same model).

I guess it’s like many social situations, some people are happy to chat and offer advice or opinions while others will sit back, listen and digest. The latter type of person may be more selective about when they actually do contribute but doesn’t mean they are less valuable. I work with a lot of people who make a lot of noise, but offer little substance.

The other thing to bear in mind is that people may be at different stages of their Elgrand journeys, some like me may be waiting for theirs to arrive or be prospective buyers doing research - apart from saying hello, there’s not much we can offer others on this forum. Once a little further into our journeys the participation will become more balanced, but admittedly it will be more take than give in the early days.

@Karl - I really should have an EOC sticker on mine but I haven't got one, how do I get one? Is there a relevant thread / sticky thread?
