Those Who Lurk in the Shadows.

Joeyray's Bar
Just out of curiosity, how many people lurk these forums and read our threads and such, but never actually post here? I know I did that for several months before actually joining anything, and I've seen a few people post here as if they've been reading the threads, almost as if they were giant stories or books.

So please, do post on this thread if you're a lurker on this forum. I'd like to see how many people are, in fact, here without anyone knowing.

I already know that you're here, SF. You do not qualify as a lurker, so away with thou!
I read GP sometimes. but i dont want to join...
Well, I've actually been lurking for quite a long time. If I remember correctly, I started a little while before Cloaked Love went up. I have come here to read some of the shorter stories and a few of the roleplays on a quasi-regular basis since then. I used to come around more often, but over the past year or so I lost track of most of what happened around here. I would have posted sooner perhaps, but for some reason there were parental controls preventing me from doing so — I probably enabled them when I first made my Battle.net account a loooong time ago. I was too lazy to rectify this until today when on a whim I decided to attempt to respond to your question. I guess the Dark Templar was a more appropriate portrait then I first imagined.
As an aside, this feels very awkward.

Oh, sorry about the awkwardness. I'm pretty sure there are at least four or so, probably more, I've seen comments on our RPs popping up every now and then. Anyways, thanks for responding. Oh, and welcome to Joeyray's. It's difficult to properly welcome people you don't know are there.

"I know the feeling. First posts were here, and I've been lurking before Joeyrays was up."

I give him a nod.

"Just watch out for the trigger-happy Zarkun. He likes to shoot people."
Heh. I was lurking for quite a bit, mainly figuring out how all this worked, before hopped in.
Well... I was mostly looking for the people who are still lurking but have yet to post...
"Mmm, but it helps to have former lurkers kicking around. Group therapy and whatnot, the ability to share experience is quite formidable."
Well, it's nice to finally be posting here I guess, considering the amount of time I lurked. So thank you, Owlfeathers, for providing the impetus behind that. I'm probably going to keep in "lurker space" for the most part though, but I may try to become more active eventually.
I'm not THAT trigger happy. I just shoot you, morrjo.

"Incorrect statement. You shoot anyone you feel that you can shoot."
"I'm attempting another reform. Might not work."
I am a lurker also, I posted a little bit on Roll 2 Dodge however other than that I lurk. I've been thinking about posting....but...I don't know.
"We don't bite. Maybe shoot or maim, but never bite. Well, unless you're KO."
*huraaak* Roach comes. Goes. See thread. Not Lurker, Roach. Evolved Tunneling Claws. Waits for moment to strike. *salivates* Hungry for... SCVs, yum.

I remember seeing you before. You unburrow occasionally and post something or other.

Good to know, I might post here in the Bar, maiming me doesn't sound too bad. Although, on the topic of maybe joining this Bar... what thread should I start at?

"False. I bite as well. Usually maiming along with it as when I bite I take off a limb usually. That or I swallow you whole."
