Anyone care to elaborate on this forum phenomenon?
Like those who run it for example.
I am not in charge here, but a mad guess would be that 70% of members are inactive. So if you have just signed in that immediately makes you a thirtypercenter because you have done something as opposed to nothing like the 70% part time casuals.
Oh yes one gets a 'conversation starter' badge when one introduces oneself also. Designed to foster interaction I imagine. Probably it's the default setting of the software.
Nothing wrong with that.
ah, that makes some sense, ok, so my stalker is 'new' then or has been lurking around for a while and thought, hmm...this looks like a target!
At best it's good coding but poor design. Who cares if you like many other people do not post. Not a personal attack but that other bit of design do not make sense. For example how hard is it to change an avatar?
Yes, that's how it feels to me, if someone was following me around outside listening and watching everything I was saying, that's how I'd feel, it just feels uncomfortable, knowing someone is 'following me'.
No personal attack taken, I've no idea what you mean

"huh? I do post.."
mm I wrote this at midnight ish.
It was a throwaway sudo sarcastic comment aimed at the designers of the forum.

Nor do I, it was way too late.
As above, I am with you that this is a strangely designed forum.
I remember thinking it looks like i'm attacking this guy. And instead of rewriting it. I put "no personal attack"
I apologise. I get bad when tired.
Does this make sense?
What I should have wrote:
This system is so screwy, it gives you stats no one cares about.
That does sound strange. Is there really someone there though? You should establish whether it's a real person or just your mind playing tricks.
