Hi I realize no one knows me and thats ok I dont mean to come in and just start talking but thats what I do in any case. All of you make valid points on what to look for in researchers or team members. But a question I pose is if someone has no experience in ghost hunting but has been into it since they were very young and has researched everything they could think of what is your position on them? hmmm maybe a good topic for the next bulletin till then take care

I think if they have done extensive research but no hunts that does not mean they are not worthy of a spot on the team. Most of my team came to me without ever going on an investigation but they had experiences or studied the field and were interested and wanted to know more so I say let them join if they show potential and the chemistry is right

Thats a choice you have to make. I have had people with me that had no experience at all and knew nothing special about the field. There is something to be desired in everyone. Just make sure what they have to contribute is desirable.

I agree. Desire and a want to know is a great attribute.

So far my little ghost creation has been quite the roller coaster ride. It's pretty much been trial and error for me. At times it wasn't even a group and I was just hoping potential people worked out. Now I have a fixed group and it really feels like the ball is starting to roll.
Since we've decided to keep it small we don't really invite new people in. We do bring along guests, and we look forward to someday going on a joint investigation to see how that goes. We did manage to get in contact with another group in our area, but there was some friction, so we sort of keep our distance now. Which is too bad, really.
I agree with the previous posts. A person must have a serious interest in ghosts, but also be willing to do some research, etc.
I also feel that it's important to help people who are new to ghost investigating. I was new to this once myself (and still am in many, many ways). This is why I think Ghost Village is so great: good people, and I'm always learning new things.
Okay, now I'm getting sappy... :purplebounce:

Thanks Spookasaurus!
You know how it is, sometimes you're typing and you just hope that it's coming across in the way it's in yer head; I'm always nervous that I'm being condenscending (if that's the right word), especially when I'm discussing ghost hunting methods.
It's funny, 'cause I don't talk like I write! I write all official, like I'm sitting behind a desk stamping papers. :purplebounce:

I totally agree with the comment that a person must be willing to do the research as well. To many people just try to get by with goping on hunts.
