    Still quiet on here

    When I look on here it usually tells me that there are somewhere between 50 and 60 people online. Maybe 1 or 2 members and 50+ "guests"

    I'm not permanently logged in, I usually have a look and then if I want to post I log in. If I'm not logged in I'm classed as a "guest".

    So my question is - are the majority of the "guests" actually forum members who haven't logged in? Or are they people just passing, a quick look and then away never to return?

    So, the guests are usually computer bots, they trawl the internet looking for sites and the site count is then registered with the likes of Google etc so that when you search for something they can give you recommendations.

    When i visit the site i'm always logged in cause i can't be bothered typing in the username and password each time
    I haven't failed, i've merely found 10,000 reasons why it didn't work

    Thanks, Gis. Pity really as it would be nice to have some potential new members.

    I'm not permanently logged in as I don't know how to be

    Yep, would be good to get some new members.
    To stay logged in you just need to tick the box "keep me logged in" when you log in

    Thanks, Gis. In all the times I've logged in I've never noticed that box
