90%+ of Board Members Never Post, Only Lurk (if that)

I didn't realize it either. Click on "Members" and you will see an alphabetized list of everyone that ever registered for these boards. It list their (our) number of post and views, along with the rep. Go ahead and look yourself up. You're in there. But as you're searching for your screen name, pay attention to all of the "members" that have zero post. I didn't do the math, but I estimate 90% or better registered but never posted.

It left me wondering; "Why?". My best guess is that they were all (mostly) trolls, wanted to post, but caught a drift of Gritblitzer at the gates and backed on outta here!:lol:

That's my best guess.B)

I agree with one of the above sentiments. People complain about posts being made in the wrong forum, too many times on one subject, about old players, about old news, with a negative opinion, from other fans, with misspellings <_<, about other specific board members, with a TOO positive opinion, etc. Why in the world would it, by any stretch of the imagination, make this board any better for the (supposed) 90% of lurkers to start posting?? :wacko: Sounds like a headache.. Even if I'm not the one who gets annoyed by the posts.. I just want the occasional healthy discussion and up-to-the-minute Falcon related news.

I'd say 30K are trolls from other boards that signed up to talk sheet or listen to our sheet.

I guess the percentage isn't really surprising. Some people do choose to lurk around to try and catch the general vibe of the boards before they decide if they want to actually participate--I know that I read/watched and generally just hung around for a couple of weeks before I decided to dive into the water a few years ago.

I also agree that we do a pretty good job of either slamming the door on the hard-core trolls, or we simply ignore their idiot ramblings until they go away.

Gritz is the reigning King of troll decapitation: some of his troll smack-downs are legendary, and they all bring a smile to my face.

Have a great night and weekend everyone!

Haha, that's ok, RoShi. You have 10 post and most of them make sense!:lol:

i lurked for years before posting.

That's funny how we're all different. I started posting right away when I got an account 8 or so years ago. Couldn't shut me up for the longest time! Nowadays I mostly just post my cartoons and find my own self lurking more often than not.

In any case, all you habitual lurkers out there reading this; Drop in and say "HEY!"

Or not.:lol:

As many posts as I have my average says 0.15 per day. I have found its a great place to get "breaking news". If it concerns the Falcons it gets posted on here. Probably by atljbo.... ;) I check several times every day to see what is going on with the birds. No need to go to any other football site because it all ends up here anyway. I bet the lurkers feel the same way.

With atljbo around there's no need to go to any other site for Falcon news.
