Maybe some lack of involvement is due to the nature of this site/forum. Only the best both in contents and in forms is praised, so if a potential user feels that he isn't good enough to participate, he will restrain to do so. Maybe I'm just idealistic here.
This site and forum have been of great use to me for discovering metal music and more importantly to gain some precious insights about the nature of this world. Maybe I don't know much about the internet but I think it's one of the best site out there. This is way above competition when it comes to music and philosophy.
For that, I will always be grateful.
If I have only one advise: be a good Master. Righteous but not overly rigid. If not, you will afraid potencial followers.
Maybe it would be good to clarifie in a simpler way, what are the goals of this site and how can someone can help in a effective way. Maybe I'm just a simpleton but sometimes it's kind of blurry. Because one can say why bother with (good) metal. Is it a mean to and end or a end in itself? If it's only a mean, is it a good one to convey the meaning intended? Maybe a synergy would be the best.
For myself, I think I will step back for a little while, my well is a little dry, so to speak.
