    The guests?

    It says there are only 4 members on, and about 130 guests on. Why don't all those guests join? I mean...there are so many just reading the forums. Some could join and become part of the community, right? Someone reply ^_^
    I love you, Kiryu!!!

    You are quite naïve. Only people serious about being part of the community and participating should join. To be honest I think there is too much dead weight here now.

    Some of those "guests" are search engine indexing spiders, so no luck getting them to register ...

    As for the real guests not joining the forum... It is their choice...

    Re: The guests?

    To further explain, while some of them are search engine bots as GallComp explained, most of them are just people here to save images off our gallery.

    Sure, the simplest way to get them to join is to force them to register to use the gallery, but since the sites Primary source of income other then the owners own money is through advertisements, forcing a user to do something can sometimes force people to not come back, and in turn, would lose out on lost income from ads being viewed.

    So we're faced with a choice: Force them to register and lose money in the process, which could mean the sites closure, or keep things as they are.
