Subject: BS: Lurkers' Register
From: Doug Chadwick
Date: 19 Dec 05 - 02:54 PM

From time to time, we have threads asking "Where is Joe Bloggs?" or "What's happened to A N Other?". Often, 'Catters are able to fill in some of the blanks or the person involved chips in and identifies him/herself.

I feel sure that a lot of people who used to be active, but who we no longer here from, may still be out there reading but not posting. This may be because they feel they have nothing left to say or maybe they prefer to stay out of the brawls that so often mar discussions hereabouts. I, myself, post sparingly for these very reasons although I am an avid reader of posts both above and below the line. When I do post on a topic of general interest, it would be nice to have an idea who might be receiving my words of wisdom.

I propose that we have a "Lurkers' Register", updated once a year, where people who have nothing particular to say can let others know they are still around. All that would be required for a member who is logged on, would be to open the thread and hit the submit button, or to add a name first, if coming in as a Guest. Any additional messages would be optional.

The beauty of a thread where no-one is required to add a message is that there would be nothing to argue about and censorship would not be an issue.

If you are a lurker and would like others to know your still around, then why not tack on your name to this thread to form the 2006 LURKERS' REGISTER.

I take it your Lurkers' Register is for Members and Guests with names who rarely if ever post on any threads.

Since I like to post, and do so regularly [albeit sometimes with brief intermittent breaks],I guess I don't qualify for that list.

But I post in only a few threads at any given time, and read other threads without posting in [on?]them.

So I could be said to be lurking on those threads where I don't post.

I think we all have a little bit of "lurker" in us...

Joe, maybe you could make it a permathread (or ask Doug to start one), and then the just-funnin' stuff could be moved around so that missing-in-action posts could be featured prominently.

    Well, let's see how this goes as a regular unedited thread.

I did join Mudcat, but it took over my computer so that it was impossible to post without my name coming up. Maybe it is possible to sign in and out easily but I didn't know how to do it.
This meant that if anyone else used my computer and posted on Mudcat it came up in my name. I was quite relieved when my cookie disappeared in the big mudcrash - and now I can post either anonymously or under my own name or a pseudonym whenever I like.
Bobert may have felt free when he got his cookie back, but I feel freer now I have lost mine.

Free at last -

Should there be a valid reason for being anonymous for a post, all you have to do is "delete cookies," or just any cookies that have mudcat as part of the name. To return to being a real person, just log in again. You can copy (or export) your mudcat cookie(s) somewhere, and then just paste them back (or better- import them back) when you want to be real, but you should keep a recent copy handy if you do that.

Isn't this thread something like the "Guest register" some sites use? Maybe "Guests and Inactive Members Hello Register" - but we'd need a note in the FAQ that Inactives can note occasionally that they're still around. (And a way to get people to read the %$!@))! FAQ.)

I rarely have time to do anything but lurk anymore, and I do even that only rarely. When I'm reading quite a bit, though, I tend to post something, just because lurking gives me an icky, reading-someone-else's-diary type feeling. So I guess I'm a Lurker, in a half-assed sort of way.

I've been pretty inactive of late, during my temporary career as a hurricane evacuee.

When I do check into Mudcat to catch up, I usually find it impossible to resist the temptation to add a comment or two ~ maybe just in one or two threads.

So, I am not normally a "lurker," and have generally been truly absent during those periods when I don't create any postings. Of course, if I pop in for a half-hour or so after a monthlong absense, not everyone will notice that I may have posted a brief comment or two, hidden away within one or two obscure threads...

John in Kansas, is it necessary to delete cookies? What's wrong with simply logging out and then posting? (Not that I've ever done it, as I expect the Joe Clones could confirm.)
