    Just checking

    Why on Earth do we have 53 actual members online and 147 non members viewing? Just register already and join a discussion. Sorry but I am not a window shopper and I feel anyones' opinion (other than trolls) is better than NO opinion! Just join already and get your **** out there! That is all.

    Sounds like the attendance numbers to our last home game.

    People love lurking and just reading the threads. You'll notice that a lot of new members admit they were "long time lurkers, first time posters".

    Maybe they get scared away after every time we lose and the board turns into the Apocalypse.

    Let's put the women and children to bed and go lookin' for dinner

    NFL rules Fifty. We can only have 53 members on the roster. when one logs out we are then able to bring one up from the practice squad.

    But really, the issue is registrations were closed so long people get used to lurking. It happened to me, was trying to reg. for about 2 years but the system would never send out the validation Emails. when we upgraded and opened registrations again I mad an account but still it took time to get out of lurker mode and find a place to post.

    From an outsider's perspective, this place might seem a little uninviting at times. People do at times bring up join date, lack of posts, and will call you an Eagles/Cowboys fan if your opinion isn't of the "norm". That and I imagine some people just want news links that RF provides.

    I, too was a long time lurker before I registered in 2003. I lurk for months at a time, even sometimes go a whole year without posting (becuase I forget my password..). So i understand the lurking.

    Edit: actually, There were like 2 periods of 1-2 years each where the system WOULD NOT e-mail me my password. I had forgotten it and without the e-mail life-line there was no posting. This server is (was) awful. I got rescued (FINALLY) when these new boards were made. I clicked "i forget my password" typed in my email and BOOM, i got my password emailed to me after trying for ****in YEARS. Unreal..

    Wow ok, I thought I was the only one. Looks like the software/network..server..whatever its called was just really ****ty. We will probably get ALOT of new member on this board within the next 6 months. The new boards are up and working (the e-mail system actually works), we just won the SB.. etc etc. I would expect more membership to arrive. Why what I'm saying is relevant; I dont know, I guess it isn't.

    I lurked for years before I joined in 07. For a lot of the reasons stated in here, but mainly because of my job situation at the time didn't allow a whole lot of time to do anything but eat and sleep. I mainly used these boards form info and updates cause it was the fastest way to learn everything I wanted to know regards to the giants
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!
