An active, posting member or a lurker?

I have a reason of my own for the question and it's a simple answer. No judgment against lurkers since I'm not making the poll public. (the rules do state no lurking though).

Lurkers please vote... you aren't going to be outed. Active members please vote so we can outnumber the lurkers.

I'm wondering how many sick bastards just want to read the drivel (and news of course) here against how many contribute to the drivel (and news of course).

I'm also trying to compare CP to a study I read today.

Sometimes I feel bad that we rank pretty highly in Chiefs-related SEO. I'm sure there are a ton of people who drop by not having any clue what they're getting into. They they see shit like the billay saga and run away quickly.

I don't think it's just about building post count when you say "+1" or "this" or something similar. Yeah it builds your post count but it also helps recognize statements people have and let's them know they have views and opinions that are shared and/or respected by others.

275 posts in almost three years? I'd call that a lurker. I understand the "requirements" of the study but there has to be some leeway.

That's about two posts a week yes? That's more than lurking, especially if ppl drop out in the offseason. Actives knows this place doesn't even get good until were out contention. The bitter infighting spirals out to ALL realms.

Another bit of advice for lurkers that may want to contribute, but fear the zergfest...

Don't post anything about the chiefs.

Are you prepared to cuss someone and receive as much? Alllllriiiiight, what do you really think about Cassell.

I will, just not about Cassell. I gotta save my insults for DC.

I keep my posts about the Chiefs pretty "homer." I do recall a STFU vs STFU watching the NO@SF game last year. And I getting yelled at for criticizing Cassell vs MIA last year, but that's ok. If I was wrong there, I don't wanna be right.

Your the man, and well bugeater is bugeater. Now Go Chiefs is a different story you wouldn't even know he was a Chiefs fan if it wasn't for all the videos and pics he posts, sorry Clay but your always so negative about the Chiefs, that being said I do appreciate your pics and videos.

I lurked from 2003 to 2006. In 2006 I started posting a little bit until I got rep from Bwana. I thought he was stalking me so I slowed down:) Then I figured out what rep was and now I'd consider myself a lurker/semi-active poster.

Sometimes I feel bad that we rank pretty highly in Chiefs-related SEO. I'm sure there are a ton of people who drop by not having any clue what they're getting into. They they see shit like the billay saga and run away quickly.

Oh well. It's our little slice of chaos.

I think it's higher than that here. I used to follow our stats pretty closely years ago and even then, for every active member we had 20 lurkers who just liked to read the posts.

ROFL, guess I am not normal. Found this place and posted immediately.

In fact, Beerme repped me on my first post.

If he would have been more like Bug, maybe I wouldn't have wasted so much time on here.

Lurker, Voted and thought about not posting as this will bump my post count from three to four.

I've been lurking here for several years and do so because It's about the best place to get news about the Chiefs.

I actually joined because my interest in the Royals and enjoy reading those game threads (especially if I didn't watch the game).

As for the current Chiefs starting QB, I'm 48 and a lifelong Chiefs fan so I've been subjected to worse, but I long for the day when we draft our own franchise QB.

I'm on other forums where I lurk as a logged on member. I do that usually because I'm trying to learn about something but don't really have anything to contribute. However, as a member, you can turn sigs off, use the "go to first unread post" feature on long threads I'm following and see attached photos.

I don't think it's just about building post count when you say "+1" or "this" or something similar. Yeah it builds your post count but it also helps recognize statements people have and let's them know they have views and opinions that are shared and/or respected by others.


Way to put a positive spin on post whoring.

I can't remember exactly when I found this place. Pretty sure it was late in the disaster that was Chiefs 2004. Did a lot of reading in the Hall of Classics and Romper Room (I miss that subforum), which gave me a pretty good handle on how the place works. I recommend that for lurkers.

Waited a while and signed up to make my first stupid post just before camp in '05. It's the first message board I ever joined. I spend more time fucking around here than I should.
