Why don't the "guests" at the bottom of the forum join?

What's wrong?

Scared?

You're not a red-star member of this forum.

Am I missing something?

I paid with a credit card. Took me all of 2 minutes.

Made me feel good to keep Joe G.'s gift of bikeforums alive in some small way.

Though I understand many on the board are not in a financial position to get the red star, but there are some folks out here who I am surprised have not upgraded.

56/12.... may your fiduciary contribution pay you back in heaps of good cheer and BF knowledge.

They are mostly surfing the web for a bicycle topic and found some information in the archives. Then they show up as a guest! They may not even be aware they might join.

dnvrfox is correct.

By the way, for those who might not know, you can read the archives by clicking on the lower right hand corner (in the black part) of the BF screen.

I kinda doubt that the guests are looking at Foo. Most probably came here looking for bike related stuff, so until they join, they'll probably never see this.

I'm logged into the work laptop and I don't auto-login on the laptop; I have to log in to post. So I'm one of 'em, sometimes.

But I'm still the Red Haired Scot.

Unfortunately, no one can tell us since someone who tells us necessarily is no longer a guest and can no longer speak authoritatively about the guests.

So that is why you keep posting those threads! To get all your friends on BF. You clever schemer, you.

Actually not a single one of my friends has joined bikeforums. I guess they don't care for cycling

Yes. You just link it to your bank account, and 'transfere' money into it to send off. Just like ING Direct as such (thats if your in AUSTRALIA you'll know what i'm talking about).

So It will take money from my account and put it into a pay pall acount? Is there a minimal amount requirement? So if I get money from lets say selling something on ebay, I can transfer that to my acount again?
