You know the adage of you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. Well I think the same is true with newbies to BGE. In April and May I taught two classes at my dealer's place and out of 24 newbie attendees only one (SmokeDiver) was already familiar with this board. In spite of explaining the value etc to the best of my knowledge not a one has come here, nor registered. Also I have three neighbors with large eggs - who seldom use them - will not come here either. I talk up the board and they look at me like I'm from Mars! They all are computer literate. Am I such a rabid egger that they seem strange to me as I must to them? I thought maybe posting this might solicit comments from newbies. I just don't get it - this is a great board with a wealth of knowledge available at the snap of the finger! I've got another class coming up soon and I thought maybe I could glean some ideas to spur that group to the board.
