    Why are there so many guests... for example right now there are 4 members and 200 guests online

    Lurk, lurk, lurk... Some folks just want to check it out or maybe don't feel they have anything to offer - too bad, though, because you're right - we're the best!

    It's because when people look up web design problems they're having, WDF usually comes up first
    That's actually how I ended up joining. I typed in "web design forums" into google, and BAM! Ended up in the best community ever.

    There aren't necessarily 200 guests just because Xenforo says there are. I'm not sure Xenforo has any kind of detection for this, but a lot of "users" are often prefetchers. AOL did this for the longest time...not sure if they still do.

    "Community" is the key word. I'm on one other forum, and have been on a couple others. None that I've seen can claim to have the same level of community we have here.

    The other thing about it is that this is the only forum that 1) has several members with half of a brain and 2) ensures that their message quite rightly is the dominant message.

    It's irritating to try and suggest to someone that they should try to understand who they're building sites for and then get drowned out by the "submit to social bookmarking sites, Deep Linking, forum, blogs, blah blah blah, yadda yadda, BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"
