Question Many people register but never post.

I apologise. I'm bored. I'm going offline now.

I know! These people annoy me!! A couple of them PM me and just talk me that way... WHY ME!! Who knows. But those ones, like Bonnielisa, I like!!! I just met another nonposter too by PM. She randomly PMed me. Weird, but Matchbox, if you see this, you are cool and team Russia Men rocks!!

I'm a young girl, an old WTAWorld member.

Do you have to be registered to be able to read the board? , so maybe they join the 1st time to read it, and never back again. dunno.

LOL, lemon...then I'm glad there's no one else on here from Indiana with my name

Maybe many of those posters are lurkers, who want to reserve the right to post at a certain time. I know I belong to a couple of groups where I just lurk.

I agree with that too, I almost never post in some forums, but I just lurk there from time to time

Yeah, as of April 1 you had to register to read some forums, all but GM, NT, and Games I think.

I remember coz I found the board in December and used to just read it, and then I had to join.

Richie I agree but I reckon the point of all of this is that there are MORE lurkers than actual posters at wtaworld. Lol

Could be. Well, I say let them lurk if they want to. There are around 7,500 members on here, and could you imagine if every one of them posted 500 or 1,000 messages?
Poe and the moderators would be going insane

Actually I would be guilty of this crime in ATP world. I registered first as "Sam L" but something weird happened and I just couldn't get logged on. I couldn't post, it was hell but some force was seriously trying to stop me from posting as "Sam L"

So I just had to get a new name. So maybe that's what happened to Pippy, pippa and pipsqueak and other unfortunate souls

Divas: Seles, Sharapova, Muguruza
Pas de Quatre:
Swan Lake, Giselle, The Nutcracker, Coppélia

That's probably why they registered, because they don't want anyone else taking their name, yet they don't care enough to post messages.
