Check In....

We have many people to come on the forum and never post (not that it's a bad thing), but we want the new people to feel comfortable. So, if you are new here, please post. We won't bite; in fact, we are a fun bunch.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

Re: Check In....

I hope that, with this thread, maybe they'd feel comfortable posting. You really can't control it, but people who lurk must have an interest; otherwise, why do it?

Re: Check In....

Well I know that some come to search for infos for their site...so they don't feel the need to post as they're not here to speak. Others may be a bit shy because they got the impression that usual posters here do know each other for so long that they can't interrupt the flow of conversation...

Re: Check In....

I'm wondering, in that case, who's trying to get a site about David going. There aren't very many....
I can understand why someone would feel intimidated, though. If they have something to post of interest, then cool. That would be a good way to introduce themselves. Trolls do it all the time. We've had one of those over here before.
Some of the "lurking" crowd may be people we know from other David sites, so I don't understand that.

That was my case actually. But one day I just posted and now I wouldn't want to miss it for the world.

Re: Check In....

Well, for David I can't say. But for Gaston, I know some posters who will never post simply because they have contacted me through the site I run, thanking me for the good job and telling me that they were using some infos on their group. Either taken on my site or here. I've registered to their group to check a bit how it was going on. And yes, I must say that what they had told me was true. The links, the interviews, everything was there...As long as they give their source, I don't care.

Re: Check In....

For real. If it's no more than "hello" or whatever, we'd be glad to hear from you.

Re: Check In....

Maybe we should put a new title, so they can read it. Something like: If you're new, READ THIS!!!

Re: Check In....

Great idea, except that all lurkers/non-posters aren't necesserally new...
