I was thinking about this today and how many people on this forum would you actually say are active members? I know that this has been thought about before but I’d like to stir up the pot again because I couldn’t find it on the search engine.
My guess is 350. Now what would you say is an active membership?
Does lurking count and what constitues lurking, is it less than .2 posts a day? How about someone who has already reached his goal and no longer posts?
Either way I’d say that there are about 350 active posters (.2 posts a day).
I wouldn’t consider myself a lurker anymore but I only average .17 posts a day, that’s because I hardly ever posted from my March 03 registration to May 04.
On another tangent, as I start to post more I’ve wondered about the ages of some of the more active members. And I find myself very surprised at the ages of some of the members (but soon forget them). I think it would be rather interesting to have an AGE PAGE that would be able to tell you some of ages of the active members on the board.
The thing is it could only be viewed by those members who have disclosed their birthdays.
Now I don’t mean a thread that’s says how old everyone is because it would be random and unorganized. But like a list that you can find by clicking on, for example the Member’s List and Post Counts. Something alphabetical or numerically grouped into age groups so those interested could look at for reference. And also make it automated so that it would update itself when someone had a birthday.
