    I'm sorry I thought I already did 3 times since I joined today. But perhaps you have a different definition of the word "post"?

    Could you enlighten me so I don't get you wrong?

    Thanks.

    What the list means, as I understand it, is that the people have been here at one time or another during a 24 hour period but may not necessarily be here now. I am here at 3:54 EDT on the east coast of the U.S., however, when I log off, my log on name will be listed as having been on during the day but I may not be here when someone else logs on at, for example, 11 PM EDT or whatever. The people listed are also members but a lot of people just come here to read posts and never join and never post. But hey, I'm here and I'm posting! ;> Guess it gets lonely out there in the woods, huh, big fella?!

    Bighiker:

    It's a fact of internet life that message boards generally have a small, active core of people who do most of the posting, followed by a larger group who post less but are still "recognizable." The rest either don't post or post very occasionally. That's not going to change, and that's fine. It's just how it works. Shaming people into posting isn't going to get you the results you want.

    Yeah, I agree! Meanwhile, did you really truly (as mentioned in another thread) train squirrels to run up people's pants leg?! That's hilarious!!

    Uhm, Melicious is on that list and has posted several times today, and just about every other day. Not a lurker. Thanks for noticing. LOL.

    In addition to what SexPassion, Hubby, and John AND DELICIOUS MELICIOUS have said - may I offer my $.02? :)

    Given the specific nature of this forum, it is understandable that many do indeed "lurk". This community is full of insight and information. Whatever one member posts about, you can be assured there are 1,000's out there who have the same problem/question. Perhaps they've not been able to articulate, either for lack of words or for lack of confidence... but they are learning! And knowing that someone else is experiencing the same thing gives a little ray of hope.

    Add to that, the fact that we are just one hell-uv-a-wild bunch of openly sexual beings on here, I bet alot of people 'lurk' just to lighten up their day.

    Works for me :shrug

    Sometimes lurker sometimes poster. It changes with the mood. ;)

    BoardTracker is my favorite member even though they don't even have a single post. I found out that they also don't answer PMs.:ugh

    HA! I HAVE THOUGHT THAT TOO! That guy is my favorite. :lol
    By the way, the rules of the forum only tell you what type of content is acceptable. No where do the rules imply that you have to post.

    I have quite a few favorites, Mel. You are the most....dare I say, brazen poster. BoardTracker seems to be a well read but quiet member.

    Is this where we vent our pet peeves?

    I got one! What about the ones that come on, rack up enough posts to throw their pics out on Adult Multimedia, then vanish.

    For weeks... months...possibly years after, new (and some not-so-new) are commenting to the poster, as if they are anywhere to be found.

    Sometimes, I just sit back and laugh :rofl

    I was wondering if BoardTracker is some sort of software that logs on to forums and registers statistics for whatever reason. Who knows? Ryan?

    I don't think you need a certain number of posts, just to sign up as a member, Rose. Which, in my opinion, is why that happens so frequently.
