Who is weisguy119?

Post by Martin III » Thu Jul 11, 2013 8:13 pm

Sometimes when I post a new thread here, I like to check the list of which members are online, just to estimate if I'm likely to get a response in the next few minutes. Almost every time I check this list, it consists of me and 1-3 other people - and one of those other people is invariably weisguy119. Since I don't recall ever seeing any of weisguy's posts, that roused my curiosity enough to check his profile.

It seems that weisguy119 joined way back on January 29, 2007. Over January 29 and the following day, he posted a total of 7 messages - and hasn't posted since. Given that record, it seems highly unlikely that he's still with us now, even in lurker mode. Does this mean that weisguy has left his browser open to the 3DO Zone Forums for over six years? :shock:

I don't know quite how to put the question to him. Maybe if inspiration strikes me...

"Hi. Who are you?"

There, I've done all the hard work for you. Now you just have to send it to him.

Nope, not yet.

Interestingly enough, I noticed he isn't the only member who is often logged on and yet has posted for years.

Can someone change the subject of this thread to "How to chase lurkers away."?

He automatically logs back on. I've tested it. Actually I knocked him off once before this topic started thinking it was stuck. I don't even know if he even actually comes here anymore.

Maybe he had to use the bathroom. But when stepping away from his computer, he tripped over a lamp cable, dragging it crashing to the floor. The bulb of the lamp exploded, immediately catching the carpet on fire (he's probably the type that doesn't like lampshades and still relies on incandescents). Realizing a life or death situation as the fire quickly spread through his home, he booked it out just in the knick of time--the fire caught up to his gas source, and house burst out in every direction in a violent storm. Weisguy flew through the air just outside of the explosion, 007-style. He fortunately remained unscathed, but he immediately thought to himself, "If only I wasn't reading that 3DO forum. And especially that stupid casino simulator thread. It was so engrossing!"

Orrrr maybe he just went to sleep for the night.

I think I am with 3DOkid though on him being a ghost in the machine. :lol:

Speaking of removing accounts, there are over 100 forum members listed who have never posted ... some in many years! Didn't we used to remove "spammers" after a certain length of time if they didn't at least post once? When did this policy change? In any case, it make are member ranks look inflated.

Sorry, it popped into my head and I had to do it.

We just got lazy deleting accounts, plus some industry people are on here without posting.

Obviously they aren't posting because they are offended by our forum name. :wink:

We can all post things that would offend. We all believe/believed in something.
