I was just reading the bottom of the page and saw:

What's Going On?http://forums.ghosttowns.com/images/buttons/collapse_thead.gif (http://forums.ghosttowns.com/index.php#top) Currently Active Users (http://forums.ghosttowns.com/online.php): 70 (3 members and 67 guests)


67 guests?
That shows a lot of interest. Why don't a few of you join up? New to ghost towns? We all were at some point.

If any of you are afraid to dive in this hobby, most of us would be more than happy to take you on a ghost town excursion.

Remember: There are no stupid questions-unless its me thats asking

Its a BUMPY road, but someone has to travel it.

It also means, that there registered members like me, that sometimes read everyone's post but don't bother to log in unless we're going to reply to something;)

Thanks. I'm glad we have at least one smart person here.

And I mean that sincerily!

Sorry..Can't buy it. It's 63 as I post this, and the previous high was 405 on Dec. 13, 2003.. 2353 seems unexplainable...OJ:confused:

spammers wouldnt be guests - they dont want to read, they only want to post...

no - unfortunately most of them are usually search engine spiders or historical page repositories (that keep snapshots of everything on the internet every so often).

Sometimes its a class or seminar in session where a class is taught at a local community college computer commons and you have a hundred or two hundred people all hitting the website at a time during class.
