I might start a thread about Lurking outside estate agents offices, now that should get some coverage.
Thanks Vince but it is not well done to me mate. Reg prompted me then Gypsy and Cam along with a Mermaid swimming in to do the leg work for us and without all you good people we would be down the pan.
I truefully believe we now have the best Admin team of the 3 main forums, perhaps none of us are computer geniuses (well Cam gets by ), but we pull together and any issues we seek advice.
Nice to see Howard back, yes H you were 3rd, after lurking for a while
Now you can see with our new google status the importance of these bots and Lurkers.
Lets keep going peeps Tomorrow the World, they are all doomed, as quoted by Sir Reg McQueen.
On first joining this forum I could not but note it’s interest in Lurkers, there were couple of Lurker threads running, plus the digs in the ribs I got in a few posts over my “Lurker” status, but if anyone had read my intro, I was up front as to my forum interests.
I took the pokes in the ribs as per the title of the forum “The Tenerife Forum of Fun” and by Jimandsi’s motto “If you can’t take a joke - you shouldn’t have joined”.
I did however look in to the “Lurker” issue, I took a couple snapshot views of the statistics of the three Tenerife forums, total number of members, members viewing, guests viewing, members actively posting etc. Given my degree in Lurking I knew statistics showed most forums were made up of, 1% active posters, 9% occasional posters, 90% lurkers, these statistics have previously been stated on this forum (not by myself).
Given the info I gained from my research, one forum clearly came out on top for:-
a.. The lowest number of guests (lurkers) viewing (proportion to total membership).
b.. The highest number of members viewing (proportion to total membership).
c.. The highest number of viewing members actually posting within the previous hour, (in one of the snapshots this was not even proportional to members viewing at the time, just straight forward more actively posting).
The forum in question “This One”.
I could not be bothered collating my number crunching crap and posting it, but thought what the f##k are you lot complaining about...
On a more serious point, should Jimandsi’s “If you can’t take a joke - you shouldn’t have joined” become the official motto for the forum, and possibly the first song I posted on the forum its anthem ...
