to me! Sometimes when I'm reading the posts I see a name I have never seen before and wonder why I've never seen that name before. Especially when the name shows over 200 or so posts and I'm always on here.
Does this mean I'm not here enough????????

I bet you think that about me! I wonder if they just post on a board that you don't visit as frequently. For instance, I am a 4th grade teacher but sometimes lurk on this board since some of the lower stuff is good for differentiating!

when they have a start date of say, May 2005, but only 241 posts and yet talk about being on here all the time....I wonder if they are just lurkers or have incredible restraint or more than one account/user name or just shy or what....

Some days I cannot shut up--others I browse and browse and rarely post...

you should say that because I was just reading a thread about how late you stay on at night and one poster said in the summer she stays on till 4:30 or something like that, but then I noticed that she just joined in May and only had like 25 posts.

I probably fall into that same category I mentioned but I usually browse and browse and rarely post (I am on a roll tonight I guess). BUT, truthfully, in the case you mentioned, she could be one of that slew of people who changed names in May to protect their identity. Other summers she was probably posting as someone else we already know and love.

Those things happen in cycles I've noticed. One person talks of possible exposure and initiates a name change. Then others begin to overthink it and worry of being "outed" so do the same.

maybe....

I have to admit that I don't talk about this site with my coworkers because I want to be able to talk about things freely. I don't say anything negative, I just like the freedom! I lurk a lot more than I post!

I am on reading and looking at ideas a couple of times a day in the summer, but I rarely post anything. Most of the time it is because anything I would say has already been said.

Or they could be like me. I have been around since'98, but I have changed screen names several times. I just changed names again in May.

I have been a member for years but don't think my post number is very high.
One day our principal talked about proteacher during a staff meeting and I wanted to poke a sock in her mouth. It's MINE!!!!!

I have been here for quite a while, but I generally browse for ideas, and post when I think I can really help. Also a lot of my stuff is on the home pc, and the internet is so slow at home I hardly use it! I need to remember to save my things to my thumb drive so I can post things at school.

I read WAY more than I post. And I agree with the pp that usually what I want to suggest has already been said.

I'm a reader and a lurker too! Most times it has already been said so I won't repeat it. I do love this board and all the ideas I get from it!!!!

I come on here everyday if not every other day. I read a lot of the posts, and sometimes go in chat. Sometimes when I have posted in the past, I have felt that I am a thread killer because people sometimes stop posting after me. I'm sure it's not on purpose; I'm just paranoid like that I think. lol I feel like everyone on here knows so much more about teaching and stuff that I lurk and don't post. I love proteacher... I hope one day to have enough umph to post more because I have wanted to increase my number of posts, hehe.
