Why is it that people are hellbent on getting into trackers that don't want or require new members, yet when some budding sysop comes along, announces a new site and invites everyone to join in, they tend to be shot down with "what makes your site so special", "what's different", "why should i join", etc.
If I was looking to get into new sites, I'd be jumping at the opportunity to take part in new communities and see where they lead.
At least I'd have a better chance of contributing something useful and have my foot in the door from the start.
So, if you're looking to join communitiues, next time a friendly face comes along and announces the launch of a new site, why not jump right in?
You've said it yourselves, you get the same files at the end of the day anyway
Or am I wrong?
