Cellar member stats

Perhaps I'm easily amused. But as I was getting ready to go put the trash out, I noticed the little "members" button up next the the FAQ. It turns out you can get a listing of all the members, and you can sort them by number of posts. Since it displays 10 per page, it's not that hard to figure out some stats. So I couldn't resist:


364 members have never posted.

222 have posted exactly one time.

105 have posted twice.

74 have posted more than 100 times.

27, more than 500 times

20, more than 750

14, more than 1000

8, more than 2000,

and 3 more than 4000.


What does it mean? Not much. Still, I was curious.

Enjoy!

There is? Oh, sorry, must have missed it. I'll have to look at it again tomorrow.

syc, you account for approximately one eleventh of the total posts of the forum.

The top ten posters account for approximately one half of the total posts.

(By contrast, on the other forum I frequent, the top two posters both account for more than one seventh each, and the top ten posters account for nine tenths of the total posts).

Why does everyone base everything on post counts?

And what ARE we basing on post counts?

It's just statisitcs which clearly show that over 600 accounts on this board are unutilized. 364 are probably just cookie accounts(for easy browsing) and about 300 are possible troll accounts.

I'm interested in numbers. It doesn't mean anything. Like I said, I'm easily amused.

i used to be one of the top ten posters...then i sort of stopped posting.

post counts don't matter, but they will always be a contest to some people on EVERY forum. what should really count is the quality of the posts. and to most people, it does. it's just interesting to see who has the most to say, especially since those of us who have been here for years know who really does have the most to say.

Yes, almost 2 years.

It would have made the sentence a little bit longer if I were to have said "those of us who have been here for 1 year and 11 months." I think it's close enough.
