No, why do members come and don't post?

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: Why come but not post?

I come a lot but I don't post a whole lot. That's cause I either don't have anything to say, or the topics that have had new posts aren't ones I'm interested in posting in.

What Miba said if I came as often as I used to.

Re: Why come but not post?

Some people are more of the listening type. Not everyone likes to throw their hat in the ring (a phrase i still don't understand... why waste a perfectly good hat???) and knock horns with people.

And others just just like to be part of something, even if they aren't active.

Good... Bad... I'm the one with the gun.

Re: Why come but not post?

Good points.

In general, 1% of a community will create (new topic, new contributions like fan fiction, fan art, etc.), 10% will consume it (reply to topics, enjoy the contributions, etc.), leaving the rest to just enjoy it at their leisure.

Last week, BFFC had over 3,600 people visit, checking out an average of nearly 5 pages (17,780 total pageviews). That's three times more people visiting, than there are people who've signed up in the last two years.

On the boards, there are 1,037 members, but only around 200 have more than 5 posts. 20% is above average, and shows off a healthy community.

Re: Why come but not post?

Some ( including me I say) have bigger mouths and like to share their point of views often. I have to try and keep my comments relavent and the least annoying I can make them. I'm sure there are people that don't feel like they have something to add and don't want to just make noise. Plus I know I'm not really comfortable with role playing just yet, although someday I may be. I may consider myself a writer or an artist but that doesn't mean I write fan fiction or make relevant art to post.

Re: Why come but not post?

I'd probably consider "active" as someone with 4 stars and up.

Re: Why come but not post?

I think active is someone who posts at least once a month wink

For many of us that's not a problem tongue

You're not active;  you're hyper-active!  (at least here)

I need to waste WAY more time here if I'm supposed to come even CLOSE to matching that!  wink

Re: Why come but not post?

I know I'm two years off this last reply, but I will try and contribute smile tongue

Yeah, most members don't post, but it's their decision! smile

You're foolish words can never hurt me

Re: Why come but not post?

There is another aspect that I brought up on another thread where I was saying that I don't like to just pipe in to increase my total number of posts. So my posts tend to be longer rather than of greater frequency. I don't know which is more annoying posts that only contain "LoL" or my diatribes about the meaning of life. I guess either extreme can be annoying depending on your mood at the time.

Thats why at a forum I go to (and mod) we have a rule that you absolutly can't make one word, OR one sentance posts. This prevents people from making a ton of posts just so they can have a lot of posts, as well as making a substantial post. Because really, if you're going to make a post, you might as well make it worthwhile for the next person to read....
