WHO ARE THESE MEMBERS

Post  dmar5143 on Fri Sep 14, 2012 12:49 pm

i see our membership growing but is it realy.folks join and i would think are boxing fans yet post nothing.you would think in the first few days they would get involved.surely there are several topics worthy of a post.there are several fights that have come up that if your a boxing fan that you could comment on or maybe even start a topic.some have been so called members for over a year yet not one post.i counted 38 members with either zero posts or 1 post and we can say 39 if we count nursecindi whos been defined as a bot.i did notice shortly after grant posted he was away for a week because his pet dog of many years marlowe had to be put to sleep and someone joins under the name marlowe..
if these folks can be reached by email ill sugest the mods contact them noting there inactivity and if in a few days dont contribute something worthwhile they will be deleated from the forum.we are just kidding ourselfs with a padded membership.maybe they forgot they joined but i doubt it.

It's extremely common on boards. I think it probably happens for a variety of reasons. Some people like to just read the boards and not get involved. Sometimes is some kind of spam, could be a simple as putting a link on your profile. It is kind of weird though. I don't know if people just join and check it out and then move on or what. But it's common with all boards everywhere.

some points why are resonable but one doesnt have to join to read the board.its for all to see as guests and they can read the board with no problem.

It may not be that way on this board, but some boards have certain sections that can't be viewed by guest, only members. It's like that at many forumotion boards. As a guest those sections won't even appear so the only way you can tell if there is more sections viewable by members only is to become a member.

Am I crazy or is there some kind of underlined tone here? Was I out of line posting in this thread?

I can't give much insight because you guys are well over my head. I'll just add that I'm rooting for Lopez and Chavez this weekend. Other then that I'll just enjoy the fights.

lol, I like Lopez because I'm a sucker for an underdog and I loved it when he beat Mike Dallas Jr.

Anyone that has a problem with what I said. Maybe I just read it wrong, but it seemed like people didn't like that I chimed in.

I just got home from work and I don't believe anyone had a problem with anything you said.

Please post more. Make your thoughts known about fights, fighters, etc...... All opinions are welcomed.

If you feel like other people know more, don't worry about it. Everyone can learn from others. People who have been boxing fans for a long time and hardcore fans are able to learn things from newer fans.

I didnt LOL. But really you are right I think a lot of these members are probably people who just like reading the posts.

no reason to explain your predictions.by definition,anyone's predictions are irrational,because,no matter how much we think we are unbiased,we're not.btw i like lopez too,i think he has fighter's mentality,i just think he's not a big enough dog to do much besides nip.

i thought the same thing. its just funny that dmar made a thread about members not posting and then the first response is a new poster.

hopefully you stay around though. its always good to have more members as long as you arent a troll.

Lots of people in the business keep an eye on boxing boards. I know for a fact Shannon Briggs, James Toney, and Mark Breland post on a lot of boards and follow a ton. I also know of a high profile match-maker who keeps a close eye on what fans are thinking and posting about on the boards.

I'll try to post a little bit. Might be more of a reader then a poster. I don't have much of quality to add to most topics here. But I'll be around.

I'm glad to hear you will stick around. I think everyone here appreciates as much new blood as we can bring in as long as the person isn't a troll. Feel free to jump in GOR because I know you can do better than I am Laughing We have several knowledgeable posters that are fun to read. Dmar comes to mind first but most know what they are talking about. I also enjoy how many posters have local or random favorites. Sooner roots for Allan Green and I root for Devon Alexander. Those 2 fighters don't get much love.

I'll have to contribute to sports and OT while I learn up on the sweet science.
