    I wonder if ID has members who only ever browse as guests and haven't signed up.

    Codenamed "The Silent Lot"

    do you think we have any of these?

    If you are a member , then you have signed up . Sometimes I browse the board invisibly . You can see an occasional "guest" posting in the "who's online" section , which means they are an invisible member but you don't see who it is until they post .

    Oh , I guess there's the ' life as a spectators sport ' crowd coming to watch those who rush in where angels fear to tread.

    So I want them to:

    See the Big Picture.

    Join the team.

    And come in for the Big win.

    I would like to resolve any misinterpretation, when I say members I don't mean official members who have signed up, i mean the ones who regularily cmoe and watch the boards but never sign up

    P.S bodebliss, there are some things in life I hope ther are no spectators to ;)

    If Television could watch those types of people back, they'd never turn on the TV.

    I've always been a guest/spectator to many forums. Including this one. I decided to join this one because it was dawn. There's not much to worry about when you have guest because all they do is just checking out what people say and see if they can learn a thing or two. Then on with their normal life or on to another forum or research that they have to do.

    Maybe they're people stopping over from bts/ats. Remember you have to sign up again with a new user name, over here at ID.

    Lastman just signed up, he(?)\'d been lurking!

    Lastman just signed up and wrote that they'd been looking round a bit in the past before signing up. Head to recent posts or Introductions and say hello to our new member if you get the time oh fellow scholars of the ether.
