Chordie holds different levels of value to different people.
Those that enjoy the sharing of ideas, asking questions, show-casing personal songs/ poems, etc. with other members are in the Forums. My main attraction to the Forum when I joined was to get advice about gear, strings, etc., and I'm eternally grateful for all of the helpful support provided.
Those that join for the Song Book only, or the Transposer only are perhaps content with that, and not inclined to join in with Chordie's social aspect and sharing of information. I guess that's okay, too. Personally, the knowledge exchange and support I've benefited from here has greatly enhanced my understanding and enjoyment of playing guitar.
