Guests by the hundreds

Has anyone else noticed that the number of guests is in the 400's whilst (when I was looking) the number of members was only 3.

It's great that so many people are dropping by, but why aren't more becoming members? It's a little weird... :?:

We have had guests by the hundreds Friday and Today because Penny Arcade linked to us on Friday. Most of those guests are checking out Comixpedia for the first time. Hopefully many of them like what they see and come back to visit us regularly. :)

I run this place! Tip the piano player on the way out.

We seem to be having 100s of guests again. Maybe its from an ad we're running on goats.com?

Meanwhile, back at the mansion...

My computer has cookie rememberage troubles, so I often register at a guest, even though I'm here every day. It's not a big deal, but it could affect the guest/reg ratio *shrug*

NOOOOO!!!! :lol:

That's the problem with a board made up of entroverts. Lots of memebers and only a few talking. I saw the member list. There's a lot of people who've never posted here!

Well I'm checking daily if that helps.

My computer seems to be working OK for cookies, so I'm usually able to remain logged in.

haha. See what hte board becomes before joining, but it won't really become anything if people don't join . x_X

All boards have a period of few or not members until they pick up. Probably a lot of people are simply waiting to see what this board becomes before joining.

I'm here! Woo! Just...don't have much to say... XD

'tis the Paradox of Message boards. But the people who do join before looking to see what it is are usually the cornerstones of the community once it starts up.

we should start having silly contests with each other, or cliffhanger messages that each other finish, because the best way to make people read is to-

HEY!! I like this place so much, I became a member! This an informative fun message board and I hope to contribute as much as I get from it.

It might be an artifact of the PhPBB online person tracking system, sometimes it reflects people as being on the site when they're not actually there.

But if those are all visitors, perhaps they see a low number of posts and think the board is dead or something. But I figure we'll take care of that in time. All boards are usually slow on initial startup, I would think. But over time the number of members tends to grow quickly.
