Anyone notice a little while ago the record being set at 579 users.
About 90 members, but about 489 guests or lurkers.

I like being part of one big party even if there are a lot of lurkers like me.

When I'm gone for a day, sometimes I can't keep up with all that's gone on, and can't begin to read all the posts. If all those 489 lurkers became posters....ye gads! I'd never keep up!!

I suspect many of those 489 "lurkers" were members who were reading without signing in first. when I first started using the board, I often didn't sign in until I saw a topic I wanted to repond to.

Keep knitting, this too shall pass.

That's amazing! When I joined there were about 25,000, now I think we double that! And everyone is soooo nice.

Why are the numbers way up? Has Clara been written up in a magazine or mentioned on tv recently? Every time I come on now the numbers are two and three times what they were not long ago... Maybe it is just because this is SUCH a wonderful resource and Clara does such a superlative job? Thanks, Clara!

I have no idea but I noticed this too. All I can figure is that, now that the forum is running more smoothly and efficiently, people aren't getting fed up and going away. I was also just featured on the Kathy and Steve Elkins' podcast, Ready-Set-Knit (Kathy and Steve are the owners of Webs in Northampton, Massachusetts). Could that have helped?

Whatever the reason, I'm delighted to see more folks here. When you're ready, I know you'll go the next step and delurk yourselves - but until then, have fun poking around!

I am one of the members who is guilty of not always bothering to log on unless I wanted to search or post something... part of it was due to sometimes everything seemed sooooo sloooooooooooooooo
so I'd just try to come back later...
it seems to be a lot faster now - kudos to whoever sped things up... knock on wood!

peace, JW

It's partly because it's winter here, I think. And the Forum Outrage makes people check in more often just to make sure it's still here. And Clara is not only a Queen, but a Worldwide Knitting Superstar and Cashmere Expert. And maybe lots of people just have nothin' else to do...

I think it's great that more knitters are browsing the forums, as long as they remember they're Clara's guests, and as long as they don't want us to help them collect $15,000,000 on behalf of their dead father! [**]
