Did You Know About the 110 Non-Posting Members in This Forum?

In summary, there are 110 members in the forum who have never posted, 80 who have only posted once, and 40 who have only posted twice. The true question is how many members have only posted thrice. The conversation also discusses the fact that registering and forgetting about the site is common, and some people prefer to lurk and read rather than post. Moving a thread out of General Discussion does not automatically update the post count, but it can be manually updated. The majority of members with a low post count either post mainly in General Discussion or ask a specific question and then disappear.

I just joined and this is my second post so I'm helping/hurting the stats somehow . . . it's like this on every board like this. People register and then forget about the site for whatever reason.

Oh see the sad thing stephanie is that both your posts have been in the general discussion forum, so neither of them count. But be not dismayed you can still post up in the others and get out of the awful 0 post count category.

Just curious...

If this thread happened to be moved out of General Discussion, would these posts then be tacked onto our post count?

The majority of those that have only a few posts are either:
People who post mainly in Gen. Disc.

People who come to ask a specific question (like in homework help) and then disappear.
