Looking for your two cents...

We recently started a business application/Web Development forum in December, and since then there have been many articles posted as well as thousands of views. However, there haven't been a lot of posts/interactions/questions from you, our subscribers.

The idea for this forum was from your suggestions, to provide a place to exchange ideas/experiences/questions and make each other better business application and Web developers.

How can we help you help each other?

Please be candid here. Let us know why you haven't posted (if you haven't posted)...and which topics would drive you to participate if we included them. Or, if you don't plan to participate, please tell us why. Is it because you must register to post? Are you shy? What is holding you back?
