I worked out (by cheating - using a calculator) that
with persisely a group of 366 people registered here
& 3996 posts (which is the exact number of this
post to date), that the average of posts for each
person would be just under 11! (well 10.91803279).

Imagined that if everone of those 366 people were
posting in 100 posts, that would be 36600 posts!

Time to send out the mail bombs Erik! ;-)

Heh!!,

Oh well, it was just a point to show how when you
simplify things the figures, they don't quite bounce
up to what expected.

Next I'll be looking at the Top-Ten Posters & seeing
how much they contribute. Don't feel frightened if
you're in the minority of posters (or first timers),
do share you're thoughts & feelings too.

Okay, I'm not here to pick on the people who don't
post much, but I'm simply posting this for people
who have interest in facts & figures! :-)

Cheers,
CP/M User.

Heh!, Well just as I thought the Top Ten Posters don't
have much credit when it comes to posting discussions,
naturally the percentages maybe higher (to those who
do contribute lesser input), however it's not as if
some one person is dominating the amount of chat! ;-)

HEH!!,

How did you view the top ten posters? (Or did you go thru and manually count 'em all)?

No, instead of having the memberlist sorted
by the date joined, select Top Ten Posters.

Just make sure you change Acending to
Decending, otherwise it won't work.

Interesting. I'm in third place (just like I'd guessed). The big surprize is that Erik is not first...

Erik's, waiting for the Kill.

And the way things are looking,
I'll be behind on posts, over
time.
