I think you missed the point. The comment was not directed at the earnestness of our newer members to participate... on the contrary, I think some of
our newer members, upon finding ATS, jump in and participate with a vigor unlike previous "batches" of new members.
But there is a general feeling, a tone, that many aspects of ATS are taken for granted, because the effort to get to where we are now has not been
observed. For example, an illustration... from time to time, over the past two months, there have been issues where the server was either overwhelmed
with traffic, or having other problems, and ATS was not available. While this is indeed frustrating, the frequency of this downtime is much, much less
than it was 9 months ago. However, I've noticed a current attitude of impatience when the board is down, compared to a previous attitude of concern.
Do you see the difference? A subtle but important hint about the mindset of newer members toward ATS.
