    It said there were 11 people signed on and 111 guests, are there a lot of lurkers in the background?

    or are people like me and view topics before signing in?

    I'm a member GBL but often "lurk" largely due to the fact that I'm new to the industry and often can't participate in the technical threads that are started by our more distinguished members!

    Looks like a lot of people on the forums :D

    most of those "guests" will be search engine spiders trawling the forums looking to index key works. there will also be the usual email harvesters there as well.

    I actually learn from those threads by reading what members say then looking up more info on the net if I find it interesting or if I believe it will help me in the future. Obviously some threads I can't join in myself as I have no knowledge of experience in, bu somehow I've managed to clock up nearly 4000 posts :blink

    I lurked in the background before signing up to be a member.
    It's often the way for people to gauge if it's the place for them or if it's to techie.
    That said sometimes i do come on to the forum without signing in to see what's been posted.
    It's all down to what each person prefers.

    I pass by frequently, always signed in to that I can quickly see which interesting threads I haven't read. Need to sign in to do that properly.

    I'm signed on permanently and view permanently, don't like to think I'm a lurker, sounds kinda sinister, doesn't it? maybe people like to see before they try.

    GBL - you should have a look at this thread by Baba (where is Baba these days anyway I miss his threads:()

    Baba felt the same way and started a thread called:-

    Ping all you lurkers out there

    It brought up some interesting questions about lurkers 8)
