When this forum was first started back in June '05 there were a lot of people registering with their apparent real names or aliases and they never made a single post. Where did these people come from? How do you get mass sign ups to a brand new forum, all using complete names and then no posts?

The sheer number of people that signed up with a forename and surname and also never posted is what struck me as odd. Were the members that joined in June and July '05 imported/transferred?
If you go through the members from oldest to newest the ratio of registered users to those that post is the same. Maybe you are confused by the number of users with first and second names - before we switched to vbulletin software for the forum we used phpbb and the sign up screen for that asked for the users first and last names - when we switched the new members were asked for their "username" so unless someone knows that the system can handle spaces and multiple names most people register with a "handle" kind of name now. If you want I can change your user name. AJLighting just changed his to AJLightning recently.
Ok, that answers my question, the forename and surname was an unusual thing to see in such large numbers.
No, I'm fine with my user name as is , thanks.
