All right. I'll give it a shot.
I have been at 3FC for almost a year now. I have seen so many people come here, full of hope and determination, who abruptly quit. This is a very, very difficult thing to do and incredibly hard to do long-term. If you are like most of those newcomers, you will post here for about a month or so, then quit and never return.
So, how 'bout it? Are you going to be like Faerie, posting about your tremendous accomplishments at this time next year, or will you be more like those whose names I don't even remember?
It most assuredly can be done. As Heffalump says, our maintainers' forum is full of people who are proving that to us every day. But - do you have it in you to become and then stay a maintainer, or will you join the faceless millions who keep saying "I need to do something about my weight" without actually doing it?
