Forum lurkers.. they're everywhere! In fact they may be viewing this thread now! :eek:

Notice we have roughly 41,000 members, with very few of them being active on a monthly basis, and even less being active on a daily basis.

My point being, a lot of these people probably come to browse the forums and read topics for entertainment purposes rather then getting involved in the community, per say. Do you think lurkers should get involved more? Or do you think having people check us out is kind of cool.

Oh yeah, and if you have anything to say directly to the lurkers, say it now! :p

I sure do, and here it is:

Hello friends! Don't be afraid to get involved, we don't bite. We're really are a friendly bunch of people. :D

Nothing wrong with being a lurker... Considering this is a video game forum, it's expected that a number of people just come to check technical support, hints and tips, fanart, etc.

I was a lurker myself before I started posting daily.

I think at least 150 people post here on a daily basis.

Other than that, I'm sure 75% of those 40,000 are not even active anymore and have registered God knows why.

I agree, in fact I registered and I didn't start actually posting until after a few months. There are a lot of helpful and insightful people here - it's one of the top forums out there no doubt. :tmb:

The moment I signed up here, I had to post...mostly because I needed help with something back then.:pi:

But then I, for some reason, started to post in other threads as well...and got addicted. This was my first forum ever. :o

But there are quite a few forums I'm lurking at atm. Lurking is fine.

Msg to all lurkerz:

we will find you. We will hunt you down. and we will create extremely tempting threads that make you want to respond.

Resistance is futile

I don't get this.

Are you urging the guests to register/post, or are you urging the 41,000 registered members to participate more? Cause if it's the latter, then I think we're wasting our time cause I'd be very surprised if many of those members still remember this forum exists.

It's all in the fun really, I was just making a few points. :ton:

But I'm sure some people come visit more than once, right? :eek:

I used to be a lurker. But then I've moved into Spam City- I mean TRF and it's been great since. Lurkers should do the same if they want some awesome times...... :mis:

I'm a lurker! Used to be a full talkactive member but, I've just been so busy with stuff - I haven't really had a chance to chat to yous! xD

I remember being a lurker while TRA was being developed (and up until a few months before TRU was released... :whi:). I came to recognize some of the users and would debate some of their ideas to myself. :o

I still lurk more than I'm logged in though. I'm usually only logged in to make a post. :p

Lurkers are the ones who don't register, but participate as much or more than those who have. I've had longtime lurkers register just to argue with me lol.

Lurkers can still be registered and just not post, they're just doing it in a more formal way. :vlol: :p

When I first joined I spent months as a 'lurker', barely posting if ever. (Only if I wanted help with the games:p) but that changed, obviously! :)

I think TRF needs more members who are active. But at the same time I am glad there are less active members.
I recognise everyone more easily, then.

I was a lurker earlier on prior to Legend's release. Took a few months before I decided to join in.
