Yes, normal forums typically have more members than guests. However as this being a Camaro\car forum, a lot of people stumble onto these forums via google & other search engines, ext. Lots like to browse these forums as well as ones who don't bother to register\post.

If any guest is out there reading this I encourage you to register. This forum has a lot of great and knowledgeable people here. One of the most reliable sites to get up-to-date information concerning the 5th Gen Camaro.

You're right; there are MANY more guests that members. To the members: Thank you for contributing, and making this one of the best sites out there!!! To the guests........ What gives? you read how much fun we have here - join up!!!

We are a relatively young site, though. only about ~2 years now.
I would hope, eventually for a 50/50 guest to member ratio. That would indicate a VERY healthy site. But we're doing pretty darn well as it is.

I have noticed, fwiw, that the average amount of members online is up at least 200% from a year ago. I remember when there used to be ~10 members on. And now it's rare to see less than 30 people on at a time (except late at night).

They are the lurkers...hiding in the shadows...reading the posts and checking out the cool spy shots.

Hopefully they do like so many others have done and sign on up! Let your voice, opinion, and vote be heard!!!

A lot of times the massive guest numbers are search engines.

Also, the number of guests probably goes through the roof after a new set of spyshots

Oh, that's for sure. Keep an eye on the guests from day to day. It usually hangs around 200 to 300...sometime a few more and later in the night it goes down. But, release some spy shots and it'll bump waaaay up there.

But, my guess is that we'll hit that 2000 member mark by the end of the month.

I was a long time lurker since this site only had like 3 different forum topics lol.

I think there might be a lot more guests because not everyone always logs in everytime they come to read, they only log in if they post and stuff, thats what I do at least.
