Where are all the New Forum members comming from?

Has any body noticed that recently (This month) we have had an influx of new member whose first post is to sign up for the ADSL 2 trial, then they seem to go back to sleep again.  The forum members have jumped from 9800 to 9909, soon be 10 000
Do we have a secret message service going

Always good to see new members.  I hope they enjoy it as much as I do.

Re: Where are all the New Forum members comming from?

Pierre really has an eye for the detail - I hadn't noticed the influx but then I have largely ignored 21CN as my exchange will not be enabled until March 2010. jmdlp is 'enabled' however so have mentioned this and she is entering the trial.
On the subject of newcomers, yes, it is nice to see new folk but once or twice recently there have been posts not replied to even though someone has responded to their queries. This forum is usually good in that nearly everyone gets a reply but it did set me thinking that maybe they need to be reminded somewhere that it is good etiquette to respond to members who have taken time and trouble to help them.
Some forums have a welcome section so maybe this would be a good place to start.
Anyway, moan over for today, it is Christmas Eve after all - seasons greetings and a peaceful New Year to all my online Plusnet friends and thanks for all the fun and chat.

7 members to go until we hit the 10,000  Smiley
Most of them still seem to be signing up just for the ADSL 2 trial though.
