When: October 10-14
Why:  Because you signed up and then you disappear!

COME OUT, COME OUT WHERE EVER YOU ARE. WE WANT TO HEAR FROM ALL OUR LURKERS!

IF ONLY FOR A DAY, LET US HEAR FROM YOU!


Example: MAK, she was a lurker and look at her now. You can do this people, I know you can. With the Winter months approaching, it gets pretty boring. Why not have some fun and join in on the conversations. (You can do it)

LOL!  Donna this is funny!  I usually lurk but part of it is cause I use my iPhone to tether for internet during this time of year.  Can't wait to migrate and use the wi fi much more often! 
I used to lurk and sometimes still do but these people are so darn friendly you shouldn't lurk long! 

COME OUT COME OUT FROM WHERE EVER YOU ARE! (BTW used the Color Orange in honor of a dear friend with MS!

Lurking is no fun people! Come out of your shell like I did and see what a whole new world it opens up for you!  wave

We ALL started out as lurkers.  I remember when I left my first post on the Kodak Birdcam discussion board.  I just stared and stared at the post, wondering if anyone would take notice and then...........wow!  Someone answered my question!  I was so excited.

Come on everyone!  It's time to leave that first post.  Ask any question about the Falcons.  If possible, it will be answered.

I'm curious as to why "Lurker Come Out Week" is in October.  It seems to me that most of those 502 non-posters who were mildly curious enough to sign up during nesting season would be long gone by now, leaving only the diehards who come here every day for "scraps" of news about the falcons (like me  Grin )  The lurkers should be encouraged to join in during the height of the season when they are more likely to be here, I would think.

Just my observation.

I'm here, sort of  silly  I get the post in the e-mail, just seems like I don't get around to coming to the board very often to reply.

This spring I got way behind on any of the birds, whether here or through RRP, which is more local for me, because with the broken ankle I couldn't sit by the computer very long.  Nothing like messing myself up the 9th of May, sure goofed up my spring and summer peregrine/eagle-wise.  Just now able to walk totally on my own albeit slowly.

Happy birthday to all I've missed!!!

It's not really an Oct. thing, I was just looking at the stats this morning and thought, let's try and get some people who joined to post. We've had lots sign up after the nesting season, so what better way to bring them out. I was just hoping we could get some newbies in on some of the conversations. Some may have great Bird stories they would like to share, opinions on AB, U and whoever else comes along. No one has to leave the board after fledging, (even though we had none this year)! Most of the people who singed up are from 2009-2010 season, when we had babies. I'm sure a lot has to do with the forum format, even that goes smooth once you get the hang of it. The Winter months can be very long and boring so what better way to pass the time then to be with friends!! Just my opinion also..  devil

OK PEOPLE!  Get busy with at least stooping in to say hi!    These people on here don't bite!  Have lots of smarts to help with any question you might think of!  They are so helpful!  They have gotten behind me and our HUGS for the Military Pepsi Challenge.  Helped our Elkhart Chapter win and did their VERY BEST to help Kentucky get up there.  This a one big caring group over here!!

Did you mean to say that?  I have visions of people swooping into the forum at 200 mph, posting and rising off again! Grin
