I am on this team, 2 arthritis teams and a sub-team to one of them, and a slow cooker team. I join in on a bunch of word games every day. I went through 50 pages of names (mostly with no pictures) and didn't recognize one of them Got to believe a great number of them are inactive for one reason or another. Oh well, their loss.

I don't know what the deal is, here.
I've been a member of this group for few years. But y arthritis isn't nearly as debillitating as other folk have, so I try to be active here, but I can't really join in too much of the conversation.

On the other hand, many folk sign up for teams, then don't remember all what they joined.
Then sometimes they come back to see what's happening, and get involved.

I reckon that if you look at some of the other "big" teams, they're are probably similar prolems.
not least, because the biggest issues have a nuumber of different teams.

I cruised through 50 pages of that list (and didn't find the end of it). Not only did most of them not have profiles, but I suspect there are a lot of inactive names. I didn't find you, or me, or any name that I recognized from any of the groups I visit. Hmmmmm?
Guess it's not terribly important as long as we get out of the groups what we joined for - friendship and support.
Have a nice rest of the weekend. I'm doing nothing, and it really feels good.

Hi Fran,

If you click on the 'Challenged by Arthritis' kink above the General Team Discussion Forum, you will see the members at the bottom of that page. This time I went to the first 12 pages - only 2 pages had 4 members with a profile, and all the rest either had NO members with a profile, or 2/3 members. I haven't struck that with any team before, and certainly not one as big as the Arthritis team. I'm not bothered by the fact that people chose to not have a profile - I never had one for well over a year - and accept that there are many reasons for that; it is just the 'unusualness' of it.

Not sure what you are referring to Kris? I think I only found 4 pages of members (31 people), and you're correct, many of them don't have profiles showing (I'm one of them). Some of us like it that way. Guess there aren't as many people with ET as there are with arthritis in it's many forms, but that's OK - our little group still is important to it's fellow members. I have learned a lot from you, and I"m glad I joined.
Thank you for being a friend and teacher.
Fran

I have just been having a look at our team page and looking at the members. I was stunned when I went through the first ELEVEN pages and there would be lucky to be more than 4 members per page with a profile. Is this just a glitch and just me seeing (or in this case NOT seeing) the members, or is it normally like this. With such a big team it seems really strange to me.
