    How many posts does it take to NOT be considered a lurker? 50? 100?

    At what point have you come out of the shadow's of lurking............?

    Long timer lurker, sometime poster. My good pal, Rocky, pulls me out of hiding from time to time with his antics and I just have to speak up. :-)

    Lurking from the UK on a regular basis - at the moment it seems like the only way to see dry trails actually

    I think to be considered a lurker on here all you have to do is not complain. It confuses the regulars, they think you have no purpose then....

    Either that or have the word "lurker" in your sig........

    Does one post take our lurker status away? Or do we have to be prolific like Mr. Cabin Loop?

    Thx.

    It would have to be more of a ratio.

    If you've posted 50 times, but have been a member for five years, that's less than one post per months. Kinda lurkerish. However, If you've already been a member for one week and you've posted 50 times, you need to get out and ride more.

    I'm so much of a lurker that I didn't know I was one- until this post. The signature might explain things.

    I wrote a post but canceled it............
    Then I wrote another and canceled it...........
    So I decided it wasn't that important........

    I may have messed up! I posted! Oh crap! Never mind.

    can one be a non-lurker, but then back off and become a lurker? If so, how long does one need to not post to transition into lurker status.
