Interesting observation of who's online

#1

Post by puma guy »

I just checked and there are 5 registered users on line and 186 "guests".. Apparently the post is very much alive, though someone said it may be dying. I noticed a couple of threads in the top 10 have a lot of views. One with over a quarter million and one with almost 800,000, Someone is checking us out! :shock:

Yeah, I brought this up several months ago. A lot of responses (mine included) were that it’s more political posts than gun or self defense posts. I spend more time on another gun forum nowadays because the majority are firearm and SD related.

:iagree: :thumbs2:
I was not implying that the forum is dying, rather that it has many viewers, many of whom are not registered. Probably every forum has non-members who visit for myriad purposes, but aren't joiners.

I know this has been discussed before but I think that the "ammo shortage" really put a cramp on forum members shooting. Plus the heat this summer, at least for me, cut down on my shooting, as well. Less shooting equals less posts on the topic. However, folks do like to stay engaged with those they're used to conversing with, so other stuff gets posted.

Heat and flooding have certainly slowed me down. I ended up shooting indoors this weekend, which was a pale imitation of the shooting I usually get to do.

All the above, plus let's not forget the effect Covid has had on activities.

i don't always "log in" when reading, so even though registered for years, i'd be a "guest" unless i'm posting like now
i read more than i post, i listen more than i talk ... just habit due to the last girlfriend never let me talk ...
but i like to keep up, so i read the forum daily

As a Preacher I am always talking, but I have been practicing this quality out of the pulpit the best I can. You can learn more by listening. Good quality to have I think.
