ARH, Thats the nature of forums, some just like to watch, just look at the pageload stats.

Absolutely TugMaster.... Sadly most forums will only have about 10% of their members that post on a regular basis. Maybe another 15%-20% will post occassionally, and the rest just sit in the background and watch.

I don't really understand why anyone would join a forum and then not take part in it, it's like joining a model boat club and not speaking to anyone! But that's the way it goes - If only they would realise they could get so much more from this (and other) websites if they took an active part!

Okay I'll get down off my soapbox now..... Anyone know where I put my coat?  :D

Probable because Foggy joined, we can not see who ever it is

Cool good to see a good strong forum. to bad so many people join and then never post.  :-\ ^-^

When someone joins I make many checks .....to stop spammers getting  on to the forum ....some make it through the checks quicker than others. So the 1001th person registered before Foggy hence why their name does not show.....but Foggy was the 1000th person to be let on to the forum. Hope thats clear  ??? ???

....and it all happens smoothly in the background  :) ;D :)

TugMaster,

We all appreciate your efforts to keep the Forum going strong.

Congratulations

Just my thoughts but what about house keeping , I would think that say once a year a small percentage of the membership should be swept away , ie those who have never actually logged back in since they registered , not a large clean out but just a small amount.  :o

Just possibly a thought, would it be possible for TugMaster to send a pm to ALL members reminding them of the forum and that they are members ? Obviously the 'regulars' will recieve the message as well but it might just bring back a few members who joined for a reason and who have not yet taken part on the forum ? They might have even forgotten about the forum ?

Again, its just a thought,

Regards, Dan.

Not sure if this is possible, but if it is then why not Mugtaster??? :) :)

Would think it would be, I get regular emails from the admin team advising of things etc on the Fireboat site.. 
: Re: WE'VE DONE IT - OUR 1000th Member !
: TugMaster November 20, 2009, 06:11:07
Tis a good idea, will look into it to see if I can resend all username and passwords out with a friendly "come and join in" email
