I've had A LOT of dissenting opinions directed at me in my time of posting and many of them came from active members. All that really meant to me was that they had a different opinion.
And how does someone dominate the forum anyway? What's the criteria there...?
... a bigger friends list?
... a higher post count?
... more people agreeing with the other person?
... being a mod vs a regular member?
... having a bigger rep bar?
Maybe we can still explore that if you're interested.
I'd say, being reasonably active, having strong opinions, being informed enough to be able to defend those opinions, and those opinions being shared by a reasonable amount of other active and 'prolific' (noticable) members who can boost them when they voice their opinions by backing them up (the most classic since mid-2010 being: "I wish I could rep you!! <3 <3"). <-- if one has all of those.
I think there were few domineering
members (of those who made a big impact) lately. Well, many could be aggressive but most were reasonable.
