    i mean everytime i look down the page theres several users online looking at that exact thread!
    then on the forum menu you can always always see hundreds of people online at the same time viewing the forum.
    also, i noticed like on a thread i opened, there were 80 views but no one replied?

    WHY WHY WHY wont they post or respond?
    if everyone that comes to this board posts occasionaly, this board would be ACTIVE.
    they even already registered, so why not post

    and yes i bet this thread will have 50 views before someone responds.

    yup, ALOT of ppl here on GBAtemp (usually about 250+ at any given time) but only about 30 ppl ( or so ) post. Guess some people like to read more than come out of the shadows [​IMG]

    EDIT: Or they may not have anything "important" or "constructive" to add. Yet again, look at mthrnite's posts [​IMG] Always give people a good laugh,and they hardley have anything to do with video games [​IMG]

    Generally I hide in the shadows because I don't know a damn thing going on, or I can't say something without looking like a total dork.[​IMG]

    If I ever need help though, GBATemp is like the first place I post my question at. I'm sure some people here want to kill me because of how often I do it, though. Sorry guys. [​IMG]

    I currently post "0.7 posts per day" according to my profile.

    I check and read the forums a few times a day, but I don't post unless it's to answer something, or contribute, or be a smart ass. I basically don't post if I have nothing to say.

    I come here for information. It always makes me angry when I have to sift through 50 people's ramblings that are usually the same as the posts before it or just some smart-ass comment that doesn't help anyone. If nothing productive is going to be posted, I don't want anything. For threads with the purpose of conversation, such as this one, however, it is fine. On that note, I rarely check in on those threads.

    Most topics are on tech related questions, so it would be pointless to add something to those since I don't have that specific cart.
    As for Off Topic posts, I never find them interesting enough to contribute. I think Off Topic is underrated and we need more of the Testing Area guys to post funny stuff there.
    Testing area is sometimes fun, if I can be bothered to fire up Photoshop.

    WHERE THE WHITE WOMEN AT?

    Ok, that's an example of a useless post and an example of me being a smartass.
    Also, those that don't get the reference (Blazing Saddles) would probably think I'm making a racist remark...
    .. which would quickly escalate the amount of people posting on the thread exponentially.

    That, and I could really use a nice, dry martini right about now.
