    Default Explain the "creepy" thing.

    I posted for the first time here, and I noticed that next to my name was the title "creepy-guest"

    WTF is that all about?

    How can you give a negative title to a new member? Do you realize that you are giving a very rude welcome to people?

    The forum software labels all guests as creepy. I think the ancients believed it would create incentive to register, but that was all in the long long ago.

    The title went away after I posted in the introductions forum. That is still weird. You should put a tag on the "creepy" title telling them to post on the introduction forum first. People can be sensitive, you know.

    There are so many guests lurking.... No one knows where they come from, or what they want. Who can blame us from wanting to shed light on these mysterious "watchers"?

    Welcome Saberstorm. I don't really see it as a big deal considering the creepy guest tag only lasts for one post.

    Because you are!

    I'm totally kidding. Welcome to the board. Enjoy your stay.

    I've heard a bit about the "creepy" tag, at least in reference to anonymous posts. Probably a connection to that.

    Its because anyone who has deleted their account is lableled as "creepy-such and such". My best guess is that "guest" was actually an account name which someone deleted.

    Most forums I know are much ruder and cruel than this one. Consider yourself lucky that everyone on this forum isnt like I am, Saberstorm.

    Are you defensive about being called creepy? Perhaps because you have been called such during your previous posting history?

    I never posted here under any other name. I am proactive about my honor.

    I really see that everybody here is very cordial. It is a nice and informative forum. I really like it. I salute you.

    it originates from someone (or probably several people over a period of time) being spooked by all the unnamed "people" visible by Who's Online - bots, unlogged members, and lurkers etc. ...so the settings were then set so that Guests were labelled as "Creepy-Guest"...and when there was an official forum rank system, the members who had posted less than 2 posts had this label as well.

    So basically, it is a remnant from the time when the members of the forum were exclusionary and superstitious. Glad that's been cleared up.
