My post above yours? The board has gone mad again.
I'm pretty amazed at the number of guests being steadily and consistently over 100, particularly when I see zero of the registered members on board. Wonder whether more could be made out of the guests in getting them to stay?
As truespeed noted, most of these guests probably came from internet searches and maybe looked through specifics threads and found what they wanted.
Obviously, those that are interested in participating in the community will most likely take action and register here. There's really no point of doing anything "specific" or "targeted" to attract these guests because people should make the personal decision of participating here. I don't think we need to go out and "recruit" as many members as possible; we need to add smart, educated, informed individuals who can function well in a group discussion. Right now Frihost has a great group of people who are just able to do that. Guests who go ahead and take the initiative to register will most likely share the same traits as well.
As they say, quality over quantity. We don't want to end up like some of the other forums who are filled with spammers and immature chaos.
