Posted:Ok, in the interests of research, I tried lurking for a couple of days.

Bah, it's not fun at all. No-one knows you're there, so no-one talks to you.

Anyways, surely lurking is totally against the point of the whole community of firedancing?!

Posted:I have a theory on the "lurkers". It maybe utter bollox but I'll give it a go. When you are on HoP and reading a thread but something else catches your eye, you right click it and open it in a new window (Such as you want to read someones profile that has posted in the thread). As the "Who's online" shows you up on the original thread or forum list maybe it shows you up as anon. on the lurkers list for the other window you just opened. That would explain why sometimes most of the lurkers seem to be looking at peoples profiles.... wouldn't it?

I'm probably completely wrong though.... just a guess.

Posted:Hmmm. I'm not sure... if you open a new window it still opens it in your profile, so you should still appear in the Who's Online in your profile.

Dunno... maybe the mods can help biggrin

this is indeed true. Lurkers, by very definition, lurk. They do so without posting.

netspeak is silly isn't it.

what we're seeing is a mixture of people who want to remain anonymous and a few unregistered folks. That's all. Nothing to get upset about.

Sorry to spoil your fun.

go back to your running from shadows...

hmm, the amount of lurkage seems quite odd.

particularly as often many of them seem to be in the same place.

perhaps some techy reason? or are they all genuine individual lurkists?
