Lots of people have never posted!


Recommended Posts

There is one advantage by signing up, but never posting. You can se what posts are new, since your last visit.

But apart from that I also wonder why there is this great silent majority. Why sign up and never post?

I don’t post often, but I signed up because I felt that now and then I had something worth saying in this forum.

Get an answer to a question. Maybe give at tip to someone else, or an opinion, once in a while. If just half of those 1446 people did the same, this would be a very lively forum.

Some people seek justice so persistent, that they will do great injustice themselves.

Could be the search feature. Most people when answering a question to someone 'new' to the forum - inc. myself - have at least once said: try the search feature, you'll find your answers there. And so by signing up they can take that advice without ever having to 'bother' us with the little things that have already been answered elsewhere.

That could be 1446 people who have done the right thing and refrained from asking how do I switch it on?

Just my opinion of course.

Some of them are going to be spam bots that signed up with a fake E-Mail and could not activate there accounts.

Other I think are people who sign up to get full access to the site and to be able to get help when needed. I know when I 1st signed up I never posted till I had a Paint.NET crash (this was back before the day of the crash log :P). Then you have people who like the program and feel that by signing up there helping to give something back.

I joined when PDN crashed on me (twice). The only thing I was thingking was "I hate Paint.NET" and "Should I post in 'General Coding / Programming' or 'Questions & General Discussion'?"

Hehe, I would never think like that now.

Talking about people not posting, what about Illnab1024? He hasn't posted in quite a while!

v An excellent open–source strategy game—highly recommended.

I'm always posting! But I would really like to know what happened to Trickman! He was the first person I've ever seen on the forum! From my first reply!

Yeah, I think we knew that already... :roll:

Definitely! And User24. He was the first person that I really met, and he encouraged me, too.
