Subject: 1,645 Members at inthe00s? Interesting figures ....

Written By: Green Lantern on 09/16/07 at 12:24 am

Of the 1645 Member list:

1  member has made 130,000 or more posts! (no prizes for guessing who that is!).

2  members have made 90,000 or more posts.

4  members have made 40,000 or more posts

7  members have made 30,000 or more posts.

10  members have made 20,000 or more posts.

13 members have made 15,000 or more posts.

24 members have made 10,000 or more posts.

42 members have made 5000 or more posts.



106 members have made 1000 or more posts.






Now ... here's another perspective ....




Of that 1645 Member list ...


1539 Members have made 1000 or less posts.

1482 Members have made 500 or less posts.

1383 Members have made 200 or less posts.

1206 Members have made 50 or less posts.

1092 Members have made 20 or less posts.

Now ... this is where I start  to think ...  :-\\  :-X  .... that these are 'members' ....  (no I didn't say that !  :-X :-X :P ;) ).

989 Members have made 9 or less posts.

881 Members have made 5 or less posts. That's over half our 'membership'. :o  No wonder it doesn't feel like we have 1645 members.  :P ::)


121 Members have made 1 post.

297 'Members' :-X  ::)  :D have made 0 (ZERO !) posts



Hey .. I've just had an idea! I'll pay for a world-wide tv ad to get them into action!  >:( >:( ;D

Hmm though,  :-\\  .. somehow I'm not expecting to get much of a result!  :D ;D

7 out of 1,645 members have made 30,000 or more posts. 
But do these 7 members all recommend Trident?  I know I do! :D

You may have to re-calculate for it is 1638 members not 1645.

There are various figures floating around .... as 'Red Ant' may be able to confirm for us. 1638 appears inside 'key stats' box at the top of this page.

I just went to 'Big Boards' ... this link: http://www.big-boards.com/board/1653/

I came up with the 1645 figure my doing a member search on the home page. 1645 is what it gave me. It is close enough for me ... to WHATEVER of the 3 figures is true (if any). If you want to come up with different figures .... go ahead ... be my guest.

However .... and this is WEIRD!!!

I just checked again on that member list .... this is the latest figure ...

Viewing Members 1621 to 1626 (of 1626 total members)

It's a mystery to me!

The lowest number will give us a better ratio.

I approved some pending accounts as well as deleted some last night, thus the number difference.

A copy of my reply in the 'we're surging by post ratio' thread .... for posterity (POSTerity  :P ) .... and as another post ... it doesn't hurt our post ratio either!  ;) :D ;D


Wow! I've just had another look at our membership. Looks like we've jettisoned a few ...  8) 8)  http://forum.pc-freakz.com/style_emoticons/default/clapping.gif

Because of the difference in the member-list (searchable from home page ... it gives us as 1279 last time I looked .... and the '1289' I last saw in our 'key stats' (top right corner of this page) ....  for convenience / worst case scenario ... I chose 1300 as our membership ... giving us a very very rough approx / ball park ratio of 1294.

When the new 'Big Board' figures are released in just over 3 hours .... I expect to see us on page one .... in 16th spot!  8) 8) 8) 8)

...and now we're down to 1,230 Members. I wonder how many of them have made exactly zero posts (not counting the ones who've registered within the past couple days).

Around 10%. I'll be doing the 6+ month inactive/0 post count purges on a quarterly basis.
