    Default Strange happenings at the GPWA

    First not sure which thread this should be so please shift it around as you see fit.

    Second I know the title is strong but thats life.

    I have been posting on the forum now for about 1 year during but during the last months I have noticed something very odd, if a negative post comes up about an affiliate or operators a post seems to appear very quickly and the user account seems to be very old, I noticed one user had just 2 or 3 post and the account was opened in 2007 another one had 3 posts and was opened 7 months ago.

    Bet Partners made a very valid point every day many many new threads are opened with some greats topics and some thread that are funny or just complete crap how is possible that you can only post a couple of times in 2 years.........

    I love conspiracy theories could it be people have a number of accounts????

    Or is just 2.15am and I am going nuts and i need sleep.....

    Good night.

    Hmm, well i have had an account here for about 6 months, and never made a post until today, in fact i made 3 today, probably under the wrong circumstances mind you, but i don't have any other account other than this one, just never felt like or saw a post i wanted to reply to. Thinking about it, thats quite normal for me to do that, i had an account at casinomeister for over a year before i made a post there, not intentionally waited for a year, but thats just the way it was.

    LOL, Yes i noticed that myself Shawn. One thread there are people that have made a first post to defend a person that did something wrong. Oh yes and boris you are one of those defending this person and you know who im talking about.

    Just like any other forum, there are lurkers who only post when something important to them comes up - or they need help with something.

    The public membership is open to anyone who wants to sign up, so I'm sure there are some "multiple personalities" and other normal junk that happens on public forums... But private membership actually has criteria and these folks are real.

    I think this is kinda conspiracy, people come here from goggle seeking info they find GPWA - BINGO - you take 2 months reading this forum or more if your lazy you will never read it all and after that your so full of things in the head posting is the last thing you want. YOu make sites and come back to bitch when you get riped off. Standart human beaviour.

    I've noticed this too, but I gotta say I have done the same.. An example is the GAP forum (not Steve's, the other one).. I didn't post until I saw something I thought was worth posting to, posted a handful of times, and now have stopped posting again.
    I think it just happens..
    You'll find that it's not just affiliates that it happens with either.. I have noticed over the last 4 years that affiliate managers do it too.. They will post on and on for a few months, then just disappear into the night as quickly as they arrived. There are only a handful of us that I can name that have actually been around regularly during this time.

    On the other hand, I think it's good to see people who joined years ago finally making their first posts if they are contributing good information.. it can't hurt.

    And I gotta say, I'm a big fan of the fun threads circulating at the moment. Sometimes I wonder whether you can die from being too serious. I would actually hope to encourage people to make more funny threads and if you notice a program going above and beyond for you - post it! Positive feedback is just as helpful as negative

    Well you may be waiting awhile. I've only ever been to London once, and I never left the airport. But I'll definitely take you up on your offer if I am ever there

    Well my goodness. Welcome Boris. A guy can't post around here when he feels like it? Silly.

    Hope to see more of you Boris. I really do think there is something in the air or in the water here lately. Lot's of pressure and hopefully we are kind enough to let each other vent.
