    FinalGear Forums under top 2250 forums in the world! :(

    This may take a second to load http://rankings.big-boards.com/?sort=posts&p=all

    That site lists all the forums in the world Ranked by posts, users and views and Finalgear isn't on there.

    Time to step up our game and maybe then we can beat that damn

    Zwangerschapspagina Forum... The dutch pregnancy and baby discussion forum!

      I feel quite good staying under the radar.
      Battered and weary after the craziness of the 1960s, the self-righteousness of the 1970s and the greed of the 1980s, I want to go home again, oh, so desperately - home to that land of drive-in restaurants and Chevy Bel-Airs, making out and rock 'n' roll and drag races and Studebakers, Elvis and James Dean and black leather jackets. Not that I ever owned a black leather jacket.

        FG is already too big for its own good, I reckon.

          Actually, with 1,267,610 posts (before I typed this one) FG.com should be in 1470th place on that list.

          EDIT:
          And 1105th based on members.

                I rather prefer flying under the radar. It means we're still close and tight nit with none of the immaturity and war that goes on outside. It's like a safe haven on the internet...well for us anyway.

                      No, see, this is a GOOD thing. It means we're just like TG -- ambitious but rubbish. And I like that.
                      “Relationships - of all kinds - are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost.” ― Kaleel Jamison, The Nibble Theory and the Kernel of Power: A Book about Leadership, Self-Empowerment, and Personal Growth

                        The quality of members on this forum is much higher than most. Last thing I want is 4chan like quality here.

                                    I like it the size it is. Its pretty big, but not so big that there are too many people. For a site this size, I feel like I know most of the regulars pretty well, which is great. And the local community is also excellent (see Massachusetts meetup thread).

                                    Not many other forums have communities like we do, which is why this is the only forum I've ended up staying over the years (I've been a member at tons of them).

                                      As others have said, I don't necessarily want FG to degrade to the point of many of those large forums.

                                      Quality really is greater than quantity.
