You're talking to the worng person, Devon. I don't have anything to do with this site (as much as I'm here, you'd think I did, though), other than being a vessel of vast FX knowledge that very few people in the world (luckily most of whom are here) appreciate.
FA is a business and is run as such. This site is not; it's simply a forum that one dedicated owner decided to create for others. The majority of the "heavy hitters" here, myself included started on FA and migrated here in large part to avoid the corporate kiss-butt moderators and the repetitive newbie questions. None of us have a problem welcoming in new members, but we still don't like to have to spend our time holding their hands. FA is a good place to start and is a good archive for the basic stuff that we are all well beyond. Several of us still keep an eye on things over there and refer people to this site when they don't seem to find what they are looking for or want to get a little deeper.
Anyway, this has all been discussed here before. As far as what the dynamics are of making this site higher profile or whether or not the author of this site is interested in doing so, I have no say. I just don't want the site blocked from me at work, as all other forums have been. If going higher profile will result in the site being picked up by the filters they use at work, then I'm against it. That's just my own selfish opinion, though.
