Lurkers: Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are

No, seriously. This is a safe place.
No, seriously. This is a safe place.

One of the biggest problems communities like ours have with growth is lurkers. On a good month, this blog averages about 10,000 visits per weekday and yet the number of registered users is still only 4,752 (as of this very second), with that number including all of the people that have registered in the past and then left for greener/dumber pastures.

A few times a year, when the news dies down, I like to engage in a BFTB Outreach Program to help the people we call "lurkers". A lurker is a regular reader of the site that has never commented before and, therefore, is only getting about half of the experience of what makes this site great.

So, lurkers, create an account (if you don't have one already) and introduce yourself in the comments below. Ask any questions that you may have and they'll be answered. If someone tries to criticize you or your question, they'll be banned back to the hell from whence they came. This is a safe zone for you to get your feet wet with our community and its fantastic commenting tools.

Here are some topics that you can address if you can't think of what to write:

  • How did you become a San Diego Chargers fan?
  • What is your favorite Chargers memory?
  • Who is your favorite NFL player of all time?
  • Which BFTB shirt design is your favorite?
  • Where's your favorite place to watch a football game?
