    I often wonder that myself. But we are a different breed. I find the regular users on here to be fairly strong people emotionally. Maybe alot of people are affraid to join.

    Sometimes its me checking the forum at work, I only log on there if I'm going to post. Maybe some members don't log in automatically, only if they want to leave a comment?

    The one big advantage of logging in is that you can just view the new posts and jump to the first unread message in those threads. This makes it much easier to keep up as there are generally only 10-20 new posts per day. Other wise you can waste a lot of time trying to figure out what you have read or haven't read. This feature makes this site very easy to monitor. If you aren't logged in there would be no way for site to know what you read or not. You would also miss any private messages in your inbox if not logged in. On some sites you can not use the search features if you don't log in.

    I think there are a lot of reasons why people don't register. Maybe just want privacy, maybe cold feet, maybe just want to get a feel for the group first, etc... We've had a number of new members say they "lurked" for awhile before joining. I think it's great that they can do that, actually.

    I know what you mean. I didn't lurk but I definitely had the same feelings about joining a group.

    Ok then here's a question for you. How do we make people feel more willing to join up?
