    I am just noticing a lot of new posters to the Forums. And I mean guys just posting for their first few times. So it is making me wonder what's the deal. Is RJ running a "special" on the Forum or something? How come suddenly there are so many new posters?

    Now dont think I am complaining. I think it is great to get new posters...welcome, welcome, one and all...but I am just curious.

    yea it seems like that might be it. ive been a member for a while yet some newer members have more posts than me. during the semester, i dont really have time to post to the forums but now i do!

    it could also be that there are more RJ members in general. could be that RJ has been running more ads or something. *shrug*

    I started posting in the forums because it gives me a chance to get to know the members better than just reading their profiles. Plus, it's really my only day to day "interaction" with other gay guys since 99% of the people I deal with on a regular basis are straight. So, it's a nice outlet for me.

    gives us a chance to harass the newbs.

    But, I expect a LOT of rehashing of old topics.

    Nice little community you boys have here Caslon. Just moved in in March. No better way to meet the new neighbors than in Forums!

    I've noticed that the number of people logged-in at any time is usually around 1500, and it can hit 2000 at peak times. A year ago 1000 was a big night. It could be that all the new posters are just a reflection of the growing membership.

    I finally got off my ass and verified my profile. Didn't think it would be right to post without having done so first.

    That and Caslon's lolcats deserved some luvin'.

    I think it's because we in the brilliant forum group won the forums vs chatrooms war.

    The forum is mightier than the chat.

    Now we can start whole new threads about the same old things.

    To all the noobs:
    Don't talk about the guy that annoys you at the gym.
    Don't ask how to meet, breakup with, impress your BF.
    Don't ask about religion vs atheism.
    Don't ask for LOLcats (you'll get them anyway)
    Don't ask who Chuckystud, Zimster, Aero or any other former members were.
    Don't piss off anyone with more than 1000 posts.
    Don't ask about headless pictures.
    Don't talk about being completely out when you have a pictureless profile.

    I noticed this too, and I think it's good timing. Many were complaining about the forum getting a bit boring and that it's the same few people posting, so new blood should liven things up a bit.

    And those that we don't like we'll just get them to cancel their accounts...we're good at that! icon_twisted.gif

    And...
    Dont tell us about your bi inclinations
    Dont tell us about your past history with females
    Dont question Caslon; just obey
    Dont ask how long you can peek in the locker room
    Dont send money to anyone in Africa/Phillipines/Eastern Europe because they want to be your friend
