Out of curiosity, I opened the memberlist and checked out how many people have actually posted anything. As of when I wrote this (4:07 AM Pacific Time), only 881 people of the 42,892 registered users have ever posted anything. That leaves us with 42,011 people that have not posted a single thing.Shocked

I wonder if MoPo has the largest percentage of registered non-posters any forum has ever seen.

So should we be proud of that, or should we want any lurkers to actually do something?

8 Reasons to sign up for a mopo account and join the fun: (From the lurker thread http://forum.mopo.ca/viewtopic.php?t=5424)

1) It's free.
2) Members are awesome.
3) You get to write funny crap and try to make people laugh.
4) Everyone will think you're cool if you're a mopo registered user.
5) Lurkers give us members the creeps.
6) Betting mopo points is cool.
7) You can earn cool stuff in the mopo store.
8) You'll know what it feels like to have friends. Sort of.

Sign up already. You know you want to.

But can you call them a lurker if they register, and never return? Without any actual 'lurking' as such? Razz

(If you actually had 42,011 people who just hung around the forums and watched, now that'd be creepy. Shocked )

While I doubt all 40,000+ are lurkers, I know a sizable amount are. There are always people online, after all. If you're on the forum, but you don't post, I think that makes you a lurker.

To add to reasons you should join, I present this:


I got a whole pile of kick-ass stickers, totally for free. Just for being on the forum and participating.

I'm a lurker by profession. What can I say?

Intelligent discourse is one thing, but it becomes a puddle of fudge when I get involved.

Delicious fudge, but fudge nonetheless.

I suppose I've broken my own little rule then. I'm not lurking, and what's worse. I've perhaps made the most convoluted entry ever.

So, um, hello.
