Default Members.

When you look down the list of posts each day, it is astounding the number of new members we have joining daily, are there statistics showing how many join each day, week or month etc.? it would be very inteesting to know.

Derek,

I believe that you have to register to:
a) ask a question, or
b) view the attached photos.

I feel that a greater number register for the 2nd reason and therefore do not post or introduce themselves.

I personally have no problem with that as we are all here to learn and share information.

I was also wondering, what was the most popular "First name" ( without n/a, of course).

Maybe Mark could answer?

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
I don't profess to know everything, and I may learn something new.

Dear Harry,

I knew that. I have enjoyed many of Derek's posts.

I was not welcoming him as a new member, I was responding to his question.

Hey Derek,

There is a tracking system for this, although it's only accessible via Admin Control Panel. Currently as it stands now the community sees an average of 45 new members a day. It's sort of unfortunate that not all of them jump in and get involved If anyone has any suggestions for me to help improve new member involvement, I'm all ears! I'd love to see more new members jump in and share projects, answer questions or even ask questions.

I agree with you James, I'm pretty sure the some people register to just view the attachments, which is fine, but it would be neat if they got involved . Oh well.

Even if new members do not get involved, they will benefit greatly by just being, 45 a day is a vast number when multiplied up, I have been a member of several forums and this one is without doubt the most interesting and informative that I have come across, I would have loved to have had something like this when I first started, books are all very well but personal experience cannot be beaten.
