We constantly have a high percentage of guests visiting - especially after our monthly ad hits at Cool Running (the free advertising we get).<br><br>
I'm sure most are visitors from coolrunning. Question: and PLEASE be candid and play devils advocate to this suggestion:<br><br>
Should we post a message (announcement) to the GUESTS inviting them to Join and contribute instead of lurking? A light hearted request, something like - "Come on in, the water is fine...."????<br><br>
I really want to hear from Grizzly on this since it's his area of the pool....<br><br>
But - other mods - please discuss..<br><br>
Thanks<br><br>

From some of what i see, I think many of the guests, are already members that just havent logged in. I see them trying to post but not able to due to not being logged in at the time.<br><br>
I know there are some lurkers, I posted a thread about a week ago encouraging them to come out and play and a few did respond.<br><br>
As far as an announcement goes, I dont know that its needed, but I also dont think it would hurt anything to do one. (other then push the other announcement about the front page out of view. )<br><br>
The lurkers from the ch just want to watch, they know how to jump in and play if they want to, and many have. I dont think an announcement inviting them, again, will make any difference.<br><br>
Just my .02 on it.

i do not think a note is needed. I am pretty convinced there are hundreds, if not more, lurkers in the CH. Every once in a while i would get a random email from a non-poster. Kinda freaky. I cannot even imagine how many are out there. Here we at least know they are there <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I've had a few emails from random non posters in coolrunning, seem nice enough asking my advice in a non public place.<br><br>
The other thing you could consider are robots.<br>
I used to run a club forum and we keep getting massive hit counts of nearly 50 people, online but not posting. We don't have nearly that many in the club, I am convinced they must be robots.<br><br>
I wouldn't worry, if they want to post they'll post otherwise they'll lurk.<br><br>
BTW, we have ads here now? (I wouldn't know, I use an ad blocker)

Yes, just on the front page. Not on the main forum page. Click away if you feel so inclined! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Well, unblock us silly man and click, click, click away!!! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><br><i><span style="font-size:xx-small;">it helps pay for this site and will hopefully keep the forum page free from ads....... Besides, some of the ads are kinda neat sites! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br></span></i>
