    Why so many members, so few post TD

    I don't know if I am the only one who has ever wondered why there is so many members listed, but so few actually post anything. As I was scanning thru the members list I noticed that half or more never post anything and many only post 1 to 5 and thats it. Do we scare them off? Are we that boreing? Maybe we are too "raw"? Too what? To perverted? To open?

    I think many of those who never post, only read. However, I think many others never post for other reasons and I am curious as to why. Anybody have the answers, comments, questions, whatever?

    A little off thread are we. Oh well. Yes I have read about mi lai. The only difference between me and the American haters here is that I don't believe every thing I read from the "hate America side of the world". I do read and try to get the full story.

    You would have to ask the ones that don't post as to their reasons

    It's because you come across as a small select club and noobs have to earn their way in by getting to know posters personally. Don't get me wrong, the usual suspects give me a lot of laughs and I wouldn't miss logging in for the world but I'm stuck for something relevant to post after reading about your escapades. Us noobs don't feel like they belong to the gang. I notice that others like me with a low post count are often ignored unless they're trolls or just trying too hard.

    Almost all forums have a higher number of members than posts, and a higher number of members than people that are considered "active" or "regular" posters.

    No different here than other forums.

    Why is this in Issues?

    This was put into "Issues" because it is the only place I could find where I could start a "new thread". I admit it. I am mostly lost on computers. I am willing learner if some one can explain things to me with out speaking "computer". I am guilty. Please move it to where it belongs on TD.

    fair comment i guess. but u get many noobs posting shit, so one tends to ignore them (as they did me) until one gets to know the poster....

    and we get to know that they are a 'stayer'

    You have to remember that a lot of posters know each other so are more likely to reply to their friends.

    and if you don't post then stroller can't give you any shit, I have quit posting on issues.
    He does not want any of your own thoughts or anything that does not have a link, I have written posts and he deleted them because of no link..

    So I put him on ignore..

    So as a very junior gang member do I now get to run errands like bringing beer and pizzas and answering Terry's posts? P.S. I speak fluent Australian and Terrynese too.

    Off-topic, but an opportunity not to be missed, eh Blackgang?

    Read Issues rules and keep to them, and you'll have no prob.
    When you quote, indicate where from, and don't accuse other members of foking their mom or sucking cock - keep those remarks elsewhere, preferably off the forum.
    It's not that difficult.

    Btw, your offensive shite frequently gets deleted in other forum sections, too.

    I don't understand, it's the same as in other forum sections - there is the "New Thread" button, in the same place whichever section you are in.

    This can stay in Issues, if you like, though somewhere like the "Cap's Lounge" may be better and will get more views.

    It's a bit cliquey here and there's one poster who seems to love jumping all over newbies though he doesn't have much to say for himself. You know who you are !!

    Personally I just ignore all other posts and talk to myself. Is there anyone out there ?
