Hi! I am Justin, aka @MinuteWalt.
I have often been a lurker on sites (lurking is NOT a bad thing on forums. It IS a bad thing if it’s in someone’s hallway closet, or behind someone’s couch. There are two different meanings!)
I’ve lurked on sites just to get information, but without making contributions. Which is fine!
But, when I started contributing myself, I found out that there was a huge payoff. Other people related, helped me, and I made some friends.
If you have signed up here, or in any other forum, this week is the week to stop lurking and say something, no matter how small. I’m posting a day late (sorry!) and I’ll try to close this at the end of the week.
Also, help me get that creepy guy out from behind my couch. He just watches me play video games, he never wants snacks or anything, or wants to be the 2nd player (I’ve tried!). At least he sometimes waves to us when we get home from work…
Anyway, if you’ve been lurking at any of your favorite sites, take this week to say something out loud.
