    I was looking earlier at the members list and noticed that their were lots of members that hadn't even posted one post.
    I don't understand why they joined if they are not going to join in on the forum.

    Well some are just shy :) I joined loads of Disney forums back in the day and thought I'd post one day but never did.

    Others join because some of the forum groups are only visible if you join up, you can't see them as a guest.

    But I think you're right. EVERYONE should post so if you're reading this and haven't posted yet, come on :) Most of us don't bite! ;)

    I had a quick look atht the members list to see if I recognise anyone from other forums and notice a lot with no posts, even to post in the introduce yourself then can sit back and watch and just PM people etc.

    I do speak to people who tell me they do not like posting incase they feel silly or someone makes comments but tell them it should not happen and won't on good forums like this.

    That's right! I'm sure once people try it they get into it and then can't keep away but it's that first all important post.

    I think perhaps some are shy or scared they might ask a silly question- also our site is so informative they may not feel the need to ask anything! ;) We welcome them to post and get to know us all though.

    "The only silly question is the question that wasn't asked!" is my Motto.

    Here though I think everyone is easy enough to get along with and I hope some people who may read this thread are put at ease and will post :D

    I agree.. many join because its the only way to see ALL forums.... and in most cases they might just be looking for info, and just want to read...

    Keith, I was wondering if you could provide a list of BITERS... just in case.... :D

    We only joined at the beginning of May this year and I have seen the membership and posters increase dramatically since then. I think as the forum grows and the chat becomes more regular then you will see an increase in percentages of active members.

    I'm really enjoying being a member at such an early stage in the forum and am enjoying getting to know you all better. It's a credit to the hosts and admin team that the chat is friendly and informative.

    If you are a non posting member - we'd love to "meet" you

    I will bite ONLY if you bite me first

    Ahhh the beauty of the internet is that no matter how shy or how silly you think the question might be, you don't ever have to see any of us in person if you don't want too

    There are NO stupid questions.......
