It would be nice if Paydirt got humming again. Personally I'm not a FB fan, but it certainly has lots of activity on the detecting page and drawn a lot of members from here. Can some of these ex Paydirt members be enticed back? I hope so.
One of the reasons I like Paydirt (there are many) is the quality posts, usually including a few good pics and some form of story relating to the post and often a small novel is written including extensive research on the find.......not just a pic of some finds freshly dug covered in mud, which is often the case on FB (although not always)
Lots of different personalities, styles of humour, interpretation of words/meanings etc, can and has caused friction in the past and I don't think anything can be done to avoid this. (But maybe there are ways to minimise the friction?) any ideas anyone?
One thing I have noticed in the past is there seemed to be some tension at times between the gold and metal detector section/members, although things have settled down lately.
Show and tell section.....some people may feel that there finds are not worthy or are a bit daunted by some of the incredible finds being had so choose not to post. We all have those hunts but it's still nice to see other members finds regardless of greatness.
Just a thought maybe mix it up a bit....worst hunt, finds- Biggest, best, oldest, smallest, most spendies or 1/2 cent coins etc etc not all in one month
Don't know how practicle competitions would be in practice though.
Just my 50 cents worth, feel free to add anyone
