    It always amazed me that how we never increase our # of users online. We must be attracting as many as we detract! We add 30-40 new users a day, but our # online at any time has been constant for years.

    I've noticed that also. We get a lot of new people that are active and they seem to take up for the ones that have gotten busy and can't spend as much time online as they used to. Odd that the number active stays pretty static.

    I always wondered if a lot has to do with students registering to get help on a single problem. Homework help is our busiest forum in the number of threads.

    I would bet that it does.

    It seems that there are a lot of people that do this exact thing, and never come back after their problem is answered or their physics class is over.

    I once checked the new membership rate, I think between 40-50,000, and got close to 100 per day. Since then I have checked a number of times and it was holding pretty constant. Are you averaging over the entire life of the forum?

    I wonder what percentage of our membership logs on every time? it may be that our active users count is more representitive of members traffic than the logged-on members count. Of course there is a high percentage of bots or spiders, or whatever.

    It would be interesting to see how many of the members, since the inception, have less that 20 posts.

    I can do those kinds of queries, FredGarvin. I'll need a bit though.

    40,000, that's a lot. So it's actually 30,000 doing the writing and to be fair only about 1000 of them keep PF going.

    I was top poster for about 2 weeks right after Greg decided to cut the posts from Politics and World Affairs from the personal post count. Now that's something that needs a bowing smiley. Anyway, statistics are not relevant. Content is all that matters.

    So, what you're saying is, size doesn't matter.

    I just WON't go into that sort of an argument. :biggrin:

    P.S. Do you remember the sex threads in the GD we had in 2003 and 2004 ? :biggrin:

    Except on www.statisticsforum.com

    (just kidding)

    I can understand the 25,000 or so who have posted at least once, yet fewer than 20 times -- they're probably just passing through looking for homework help. I don't really know why we have 40,000 users who have registered and never posted, though.
