I disagree with you 100% Kentaurus.
I started my site on a subject that is near and dear to my heart. I take an extremely active role in both the ongoing discussions and in the administration of the site. My members know when I'm participating in a discussion, and when I'm administrating or moderating their discussion. My staff also does their thing, but ultimately, I'm creating a site that *I* want to hang out in. What good is it if I can't hang out in it?
Some may call me obsessive, but I at least skim over every single one of the 3,000 posts per day on my site. I consider it part of my job to know what's going on in every thread, in every forum, on the site.
I will always continue to take an active role in the discussions on the site. The day I stop is the day the site shuts down.
I've never understood administrators who only post administrative stuff. At that point, it's just a business, and the whole feel of the site changes.
I feel exactly as you do. I am not the owner of the site, but he has virtually left me in charge of running it...keeping it going. I came to the site to begin with in order to participate as a member, and I continue to do so now. I have good mods, the site is still small, but when it gets bigger I still plan to be a participating member as well as an administrator.
