    Default What the heck is going on?



    What is up with this part of the forum? Amateur Astronomy Forum - Astronomy Forum

    I see all these people in here that make many posts, none 0! of these people are members. Is this a rogue forum or something?

    Hi Leith

    Its a mirror site. ie it is a copy over of a google discussion group. The "guests" wouldn't even know that their posts were here, and they can't read our posts.

    Shouldn't be hijacking the thread. Since even if its a mirror, what you do on this forum gets written on the forums database not on the mirrored one. So basically, we can post and what not, but only people at AF will see those changes.

    Yep

    I'll just try to clarify that a bit better, Joel

    No we are not hijacking by posting there, just the guests can't see our posts, but we can see theirs as well as each others. There are two reasons why these areas exist here. One is that there is a considerable knowledge base in the "guest" areas, the other that it lifts our search engine ratings
