Remember our awkward "tinder" date in Rocky?? Ah, those were the days...

Remember? I've spent thousands in counselling and booze trying to forget it.

I thought this thread was for us to inundate them with in jokes so they feel like part of the crew, like Manbush or dubby!!

I lurk a lot, post rarely. Love the GH though. I tend to post more when things are going well... I hope to post a lot this year.

I'm not sure if any of you guys were in the old Sydney green brigade (SGB) supporters group ? Anyway if anyone was, you might remember me. Myself and my younger brother used to go to 90% of games with that crew.

Only thing I will tell lurkers is that if you tweet something to the GH account after 9pm on a Friday you are fare more likely to get it retweeted even if it has subtle abuse because whoever runs the account is usually liquored up by then.

Mongolia, that's pretty cool. I've just finished watching Marco Polo so feel I now know everything there is about Mongolia. Do women get there kit off as much as they did in that show?

I've only recently started posting on here and I've noticed you get player ranks with how often you post. My question is, how many posts do I have to make before I'm at Matt Orford level?

You need to pretend to support the raiders, but actually be a Broncos supporter and make dozens of new accounts one after another every time you get banned.

Are you a GH Lurker?

Post by greeneyed »

Did you know that there's something called National Delurking Day? And National Delurking Week? Seriously!

Well, it's in January, so we sort of missed it. But we don't care, because here on The Greenhouse...

NOW!

For those who've come in late...

A lurker is typically a member of an online community who observes, but does not actively participate. Lurkers make up a large proportion of all users in online communities. Lurking allows users to learn the conventions of an online community before they actively participate, improving their socialisation when they eventually de-lurk.

Lurkers are referred to using many names, including browsers, read-only participants, non-public participants, legitimate peripheral participants, or vicarious learners.

Thanks for the explanation, Wikipedia!

So if you're a GH Lurker, here's what we'd like you to do:
