Exclamation WAY too many guests

As I was looking through the site, I noticed that there was like 88 guests and only 21 members active, I think this is very bad. There should be like 88 members active and 21 guests, not the other way around. Is there any way we can make these guests join?

Default Don't you...

Don't you do a little window shopping before you buy something? Same thing. Maybe David should remove the threads with all the "debating" in them. IMHO it's bad PR. It spooks off potential business...
Last thing a customer wants to see is the hired help bickering amongst them selves and with the current customer base. Just my thoughts.
Maybe a Donald Trump approach to things might help.

This isn't bad. 22 members active is pretty good.

Well i do have to say that This forum started off with just 3-people, so I amagine that it has done pretty well for itself.Yes alot of Guests check us out, but you allways have to remember that, most just need an answer to their question.

So they just browse the forum , get their answer & their gone, but the one's who take the time to appreciate Good help from member's, will often join up.
