User number 164 in the hizzie!
But most of the early users were people who knew Randall/etc. personally, and they didn't post much or stick around. So really, I'm like 60th active poster...
I lurked for a couple weeks.

I joined at the same date as Tankengine. Look at my postcount. I probably have one of the lowest posts to days ratio in the whole fora. And I read the fora almost every day.

I read the comic for a while before deciding to check out the forum, but once I saw it, I signed up almost right away.

I read the comic for about 2 months before discovering the forums, and then lurked for about 2 weeks. Then posted occasionally for something like 3 weeks, and fell into a long bout of just reading the comic, about 5 months or so. And finally recently started posting again, and just broke 100 posts this very evening.
Odds are I did well on my probability exam.

After having googled preggo, I think I can say: I'm not pregnant... :?
And, after having thought about it logically for a bit, I'm just myself, not anyone else. I took the time to introduce myself aswell after having lurked for ages.

I read the comic for about a year before I even discovered the forums and store. It took almost another year of stalking the forums and checking to be sure that Belial always wore a hat to work up the courage to actually post.

I guess I'm still mostly a lurker.

Generally, I lurk all the time. However, I think that I bothered to join xkcd pretty quickly.

Doesn't mean that I typically post, regardless of being registered. :P

I didn't lurk at all, a a matter of fact, I didn't even really notice the fora until my lurker roommate (Troz) told be about it. I joined and proceeded to waste most of my time in forum games.

edit:

I just searched my number of posts (which I had not done in ages) and this was the result:

Lurkers!

Postby Mo0man » Mon Mar 03, 2008 3:05 am UTC

I spend entirely too much time lurking
Although I'm not entirely sure what I do is really lurking. I post occasionally, but then I get lost reading your posts cause they're too interesting. But anyways, I'm losing track of the entire reason of making this topic.

LURKERS! It's time to throw off the shackles of, uhhh, lurking. Post here and become actual contributing members of this fora!

Go away, we don't want your kind here.

I'm lying to be a jerk carry on. Also you just lost twenty dollars and my self respect. And you are thinking about breathing.

I think you can only be classified as a lurker if you have <100 posts.

I am a lurker too. I started posting more since recently, but before that I read the forum without ever posting for several weeks.
