    Whenever I log into the forums, there are always many more, maybe ten times as many, Guests than Members.

    Assuming these are real people, why do so few (apparently) join up? If you are interested in Lightroom, it just makes sense to me.

    Of course, it's a bit academic since only members can reply to this post :)

    Just musing.

    A lot of people find our existing threads on Google, so show up as guests. In many cases, they get the information they need and move on. Many more don't know how to use forums, so don't know that they CAN register. And many of the "guests" are just bots indexing.

    So that they will show up in Google searches to be found by future "guests"
