Grant's the only admin that I'm aware of. I have no control over how the site appears, and neither does anyone else - I'm not including anybody involved in hosting/servers, etc. I, and a few others, can amend certain pages, but that's about it (amend in this case means add a page, or remove a page, or edit it, but not control functionality or design). As for change, I am aware that Grant does want to improve things, but as he is a volunteer, he can only do so much. It's also up to us to make suggestions that he can take on board; but don't forget that there are also limits to what you can do online within a certain budget - this entire site is created using a free program.
I'm not sure I recall saying "no one decent comes to this site"... It doesn't sound like something I'd say. I do think that very few people contribute out of the thousands that visit - but that's not saying much because most forum sites are like that.
But you say you want to 'open the website' to a wider use. The problem with that is it's not specific enough. A web designer can't turn that into a useful function: it's like telling an actor to 'act better' without actually giving them specifics on what's wrong and what needs to be improved. Tell an actor on the other hand that their tone of voice needs to be angrier, or whatever, and they immediately know what needs to be done.
So here, I pose some questions:
(As for Grant never replying: can't help you there I'm afraid. He usually responds to my emails within a few days. He's probably just pretty busy at the moment)
