So as I was planning the development of my new forum, I found that there were many people upset at the idea of me starting my own forum.
It seems that a lot of forum admins see new forums as rivals, inherently. While rivalry and competition can be healthy, the "me against the world" attitude seems more and more prevalent. But why?
As I've been taught in band - I don't compete with anybody but myself. You can get a lot more done working with people than against them. Bloggers know this, but have new admins lost this principle lately? I dare you to find a webmaster forum without a thread on how horrible DP is...
What do you think? Are forums becoming less and less friendly towards one another? Do you see yourself in competition with others? I want to know what others think.
