Well as of the typing of this message, the Collector Forum has reached 710 registrants. If my memory serves me correctly, this is probably the highest amount of people participating at the CF.

The reason I feel this forum has done so well is from the efforts of all the registered members to keep coming up with topics, questions, photos, links, humor, and other information that keeps us all coming back for more.

Some posters are more shy than others when they first join us, but they soon learn what a friendly group frequents the CF. Many new friendships have been developed from this forum and that is great. Harbour Lights events have brought many people together in person and the sharing of the memories of those great times is one of the best parts of being a member of this forum.

So if you are a non-registered visitor to the Collector Forum and haven't registered to post new topics and replies, please do so and officially join in the fun. There are no costs or obligations, and it's free!

Hi Kids! ...I just returned from 8 days at Block Island. The North Light and Southeast Light are still where they belong.

I'm glad to see that we've added a few more registered users to the CF. I think 713 is a new high. Keep them coming!

This is such a great site. Sometimes when I can't sleep I can go on this and just enjoy the hound out of it. Has so added to my knowledge of lighthouses and collecting.

Hooray for all of you who have had input into this site. Many a "night" you have made my "day".

Thanks to you all!

I see we're no up to 726. It appears that many new people are finally taking time to register. It's great to welcome new people to the CF. New minds bring in more new and interesting ideas. Welcome to all!

WOW!!! The Collector Forum is growing by leaps and bounds! As of this message we now have 739 people registered to post new topics and replies.

Welcome to all the new people and I hope we'll be hearing a lot from you in days to come. Take a moment and let us know who you are and where you're from.

I think you're right, Sean. The reunion in Baltimore will definitely generate additional interest in collecting HLs. The Providence reunion did that for me and now the only LE HL I'm missing is Coquille River.

I see we've added another five registrants to the Collector Forum in the past week. We now have 744 people registered to post topics and replies. It seems the closer we get to the date of the reunion, the more people are joining us. That is great!

Perhaps many of the attendees at the upcoming reunion will also get the Collector Forum fever and jump on the band wagon of fun here at the forum.

Welcome aboard, .....new members of the CF!

I'm very happy to see we now have 760 registered members here at the Collector Forum. Once again, this is a new all-time high here at the CF. Many new people have joined us and hopefully they won't be shy about posting new topics or replies.

A very special welcome and hello to all the new folks at the CF!

The count on deck is now 770! All I can say is, "WOW!" I expect many more newcomers to the CF just before and after the reunion. If you're a lurker out there, register and join in with posting topics and replies. It's easy and it's free!

Hi Buz, ...Maybe not 800 by the reunion but we may reach 800 as a result of the reunion. We stand at 775 now. We could see 25 more new people by Thanksgiving.

I'm glad I finally signed on to the Collector's forums and found the courage to make a "posting."
But, would someone tell me, what is a "WACKO"?

Hi Joan. We are all pretty wacko here, but the official term Wacko indicates that you have made 50 posts in these forums. So Welcome, keep posting and we will see you in Baltimore!

It seems we've finally lured a group of lurkers out of cyberspace. It's great to see the new names appearing on the CF each day. If you haven't made the leap, do so now. You won't find a friendlier group anywhere on the Net.

Just 24 people away from the 800 mark, Buz. After we get this reunion under our belt, maybe we'll reach that plateau.

The Collector Forums family is growing again! We're up to 783 people registered at the CF. We may not make 800 by the reunion, but I would think we would reach that mark within two weeks after the reunion.

Welcome aboard to our newest CF family and friends!

I got in from the reunion last night and I was happy to see we are now up to 787 folks registered at the CF. I spoke with a few "lurkers" at the reunion and hopefully my encouragement will convince them to become regular posters here at the forum.

Welcome aboard new registrants!!!

794...need I say more? Only 6 more new registrants are needed to hit the "800" mark here at the CF.

Any lurkers out there want to step up to the plate? Everyone is welcome!

The Collector Forum has reached 798 registered members. Only two more to go to reach the "800" mark!

Are you a lurker who visits but doesn't register to post topics and replies? If you are, please take a moment to register and officially start posting here at the forum. It's free, it's fun, and it's a fine way to spend some of your computer hours with some of the finest fans of Harbour Lights and lighthouses. Put the forums at your fingertips and finally find all you ever wanted to know about Harbour Lights.

Not quite yet, JC. At least let us hit 800 before you do what you have to do. And to those of you who registered then haven't posted in ages, get those fingers moving on those keys! Don't be dropped from the roll-call of forum members!

We need you here...

She can register on her own. There are others who want to have their "own" identity in the Forums and have each registered.

Naw..... she'll let someone else have the honor of being #800. She wouldn't type that much anyway... so she'd be on the delete list pretty quick.

Well this is post number "50" in this thread, and the CF has reached a new all-time high of 802 registered participants.

We were hoping for the big "800" within a few weeks of the reunion, and we have achieved our goal. The fact that the Collector Forum continues to grow is super!

If you are still a lurker and haven't registered yet, please do. If you are registered but don't post any topics or replies, please get that keyboard going and add your two-cents worth to the CF.
