Guests can read the posts but can't post. I know that I started out as a guest, but then we could post as well. Hopefully these gus will register. Until then, or until something is decided about them, they will continue. The annoying thing is the busy server messages which could come up with there being so many guests.

I don't know how true that is. I've seen the forum running fine with 250 people on it. But last night there were maybe 100 max, and we had those messages.

I'd like to point out that none of you constructed this site and you therefor dont own it.
I only found out about this ite when i was doing a search, often, the opinion filled pages of this site come up on the search engine as a result...obviously people are going to view that if they think it's going to give them info on whatever they were searching for.

I know, I don't understand about that either. There were way fewer users than previously! :confused:

no one's explained it yet. i just joined within a few days. if all these 300 guests were going to join, the membership numbers would be rocketing up. but no

they just lurk!

I think that they are genuinly interested in what we have to say, both on the academic front and the social/political.

Especially because tomorrow is the first day of term, for alot of schools and there is coursework that needs to be handed in, so people have come looking for it on here, where they will undoubtedly find previous posts that will help them. Because you only have to do coursework only once every so often it would make no sense in wasting precious time in registering, when you could be writing your coursework.

Possible theory.

if you're a lurking guest, plz come out and sign yourself on this thread.

if no one comes forward, well then clearly there's a conspiracy to make UKL seem overcrowded so that Mr White can impose a dictatorship and ban everyone who isn't a "gentleman". or something.
