Nonexistant Members

Post by Dusk »

What's with all the people here who have never posted? The number (according to the memberlist) is 1101. That's around half the total population of this site! Beyond that, there is a total of 2177 members who only have 24 or less posts. Are you automatically registered on the forum here when you sign up for the professional or student memberships on the main site?

There are many people who have recently appeared to drop off of the face of the planet. But, that is common. People come and go. It just makes me sad to see it happen at times because for a while there were many members of the board who were "Pro" or "Semi-Pro" players. Now, a lot of them have dissappeared.

:shock: I never realized how common it is. At a forum I used to be extremely involved with, I just checked the memberlist. Out of around 6500 people, around 2500 don't have any posts. I guess it's just more obvious here due to the overall lack of activity. While the site is somewhat active, it is not nearly what I have seen in the past. The again, that was with computer people who sat around typing all day...

I'm still around; although I haven't posted in a while. I've been in trial for most of the last couple of months.

But I do wonder about some of our other regulars. Flutepicc? Cflutist? Are you all still around? (There are plenty more; those are just two that came to mind quickly)

Cflutist is still here, just haven't had anything interesting to talk about.

We did just perform the Tchaik #2 for the last concert that also included a 5th grade violinist (daughter of 2 San Francisco Symphony musicians) who performed a Sarasate piece.

SK, did you check the price of your 14K headjoint lately? Due to the increase in the price of gold (all time high now) my Williams HJ just went up $775.

If he doesn't post soon, I will probably message Flutepicc to see what he is up to. He and I usually message each other outside of the board through various social networking sites. I haven't heard from him in a while....

I'm still here, but haven't even lurked in many months. Resurrection of my flute time, I guess!

Some people sign up and never come back. Others lurk and learn (signed up or not). Others, like me, plan on lurking because they have far too many other boards they also participate in but just can't resist jumping in.... ;)

BTW, is there some kind of "introduce yourself" thread on here? I haven't noticed one yet although I have only been skimming.

I joined not too long ago, but guess I've just been "lurking" since I didn't think I had anything intelligent to say. I've sure enjoyed reading all of the posts y'all put on, tho!!! So many flutists who really know what they are doing .... :lol:

But i'm back now although a lot more limited with the time I can spend. Also....I changed my look a smidge. What do you all think? Yea or nah? :wink:

It's still the same on the Brannen website. However, I note that the price list there has not been updated since October 2007. My guess is that to get one right now would probably cost more considering the gold jump. But, who knows. My Burkart head went up, though, I see.

Probably a reminder to all here: it's a good idea to periodically (at least once a year) check the prices of your flutes and head joints to make sure your insured values are in line.

I could be considered a "nonexistant member". I registered a while ago in order to ask a few questions about buying a new flute.

I still read many of the posts, but rarely have anything to contribute. Being a mediocre flute player, I realize that many other people can comment on most subjects much better than I can.

I guess I am not much of a computer person either. I find it difficult, if not impossible to decipher all of the jargon and abbreviations posted in forums.
