When I visit sites, some of the first things I look for are, a brief description (what does the site offer), how do they conduct the site (rules or guidelines), is it user friendly (easy to nav), and user comments (self explanatory).
The "user comments", is what my suggestion pertains to.
I see so many thankful comments in threads. Couldn’t BC take advantage of that gratefulness?
Like adding such a category to the home page and, maybe a link to a brief survey attached to staff and participating member signatures. The way “donation” links are. Then accumulate and make that available to guests as a sort of recruitment resource. Sorry ‘bout sounding so militant there.
To invite guests to view user comments and sample the “air” of good will that I feel when I’m here, would surely influence their decision making process. Not all the comments will reflect a "peaches and cream" experience. But it would be an honest open book.
The worst scenario is, BC offers a survey to its members, improves itself through constructive criticism, and doesn't add "user reviews" to its home page. Kind of a win/win thing.
Humbly, you all have been doing this a while so, if it’s already been thought of,,,,,,,
