How many PF members are there?

  1. May 9, 2007 #1
    How many PF members are there? Total? "Regulars"? Is there a tool keeping track? If not, how do we install a big brother to find out?

    depends on who you consider 'regulars'

    I'll settle for a total, then.

    As a guess, I'd say approximately 61,291.

    :biggrin: yes, I'm serious. Look on the right hand side of the main page, just below active users.

    Whoa. I'm part of an almighty CITY...
    And did I manage to multiquote yet?

    I'd say you see the same 200 or less people posting all the time. There are many more lurkers and people who signed up but stopped posting after several weeks.

    We gain about 100 new members per day.

    The site's owner, Greg, has been in the habit of purging inactive accounts in order to keep a more realistic active membership number.

    But as for people that post at least once a week, I wonder what the number is.

    Uhh...I don't wanna be purged :frown:. I never post but I get on PF to read at least like 5 times a day. I even have a button on my homepage that takes me to PF :cool:.

    how many pfers does it take to unscrew a lightbulb?

    My bad. The sign off line (of whom, I cannot rememer) asks how many people of a specifed ethnicity it takes to perform a specified task.
    I got mixed up because I am in the midst of reading through Evo's locked list of PF classics, one of which discusses (at great and tedious and wonderful length) how many PFers it takes to change a light bulb.

    Hey, moose--it's you! And I misquoted your sign off not once, but twice! Gotta copy and paste it into my funny file before I mess it up a third time...
