I was in the first couple of hundred of people joining this site and I was naturally very please when it appeared.However I believe that the site has not progressed in the way that the owners who also appear to be the moderators had hoped.Despite having a reasonably large membership the current young generation appear reluctant to post.Why this is the case I do not know?Possibly they are all busy on service around the four corners of the world and have better things to do! At the same time a lot of former members of the service have posted yet this seems to be actively discouraged by the moderators.I frequently see in print that the strength of the Navy is partly due to its long history and heritage something a lot of foreign navies can only aspire to! The current attitude appears to be that the uncle alberts are not wanted which I find astounding.So I ask all of you where is this site going?If the current attitude is continued I can only see one version of the future-a premature death which will not be mourned by many of the readers. I would suggest that moderators who are independent are employed and that an advertising campaign is instigated to persuade some of the younger members to join and post.The official RN website recently had a competition with some i-pods as prizes.Perhaps some market research amongst the readership would also help.I think that resticting posting to current junior members of the Navy is misguided.The next thing will be restricting it to only sailors currently at Raleigh! Blue touch paper lit-over to you!
