...that there are 200 members on these forums and i only see the same people everyday? why do so many sign up and post one time or none at all? i think someone should go PM crazy and see how many post more often... or would that be harassment?

I think that's called harrassment, but it could be fun.

/me hands Selkie a cookie

There ya go babe! Good n00b biggrin.gif I'm so proud of ya!

I think most forums go the same way - ya have a core of insane people dedicated ta the cause (gerbil, crazi, cheese, me...), then a slightly bigger group of occasional posters (inky, crissi, lolo, alti...) an then what we call "the detritus". Sad, but true.

Go PM em if ya want. I'm not gunna, as I'm detritus in lots o forums an if I got hassled I'd be well miffed.

some of us do deserve a mention for being occasional, although we might not want to be, unfortunately jobs, kids etc take up a lot of time. Isn't it funny that when you are away from the forum for a few days dying of flu that new things happen so quickly??? And you are ousted by new, nymphet noobs? (leo) dry.gif

A lot of you guys have a lot more time to spend on here than I do! I keep on getting dragged away by the requirement that I actually need to make animations for people to talk about (well... alright, vaguely mention in passing occasionally wink.gif ).

I'm cool with there being a lot of people on here who have only posted once or never. Maybe in six months or so I'll have a clear out of people who really look like they aren't coming back...

Guh, I wish I hadn't mentioned it now... mad.gif

Ya made nearly 30 posts in 3 days - that def leaves ya clear of the detritus... wink.gif

K, let's clear this up right now...

First, I mistakenly referred ta InKy an LoLo as "occasional" posters. They post too often fer that. Also, I missed the "Rare" posters group.

These four groups are defined thusly:

Dedicated: Posts pretty much every day, always posts a lot (15-20 an up per day) The maths is number o posts/weeks on forum. Basically everyone in the top 10 (except MAtt) is dedicated. Over 500 posts in such a short time is def dedicated. Or crazy. Take yer pick!

Occasional: Posts most days, but not many. Maybe a handful, up to 20 a week. Same maths... anyone between 100 an 500 posts here is occasional. Listin the top 50, this is pretty much basically MAtt down ta Jonman. I'll also include Selkie Blue here, cos she's posted a number in a short time.

Rare: Posts now an again, but not many. 5 a week tops. Again, same maths, anyone in double figures post-wise. There are never very many of these. I guess there's about 20 here.

Detritus: Or flotsam, jetsam, non-posters - whatever. Post up to 5 times max. There appears ta be about 130 people on this forum who fit inta the detritus category. Like I say, most of em.

Course, there's always the spam posters, who should be ignored in these figures. They know who they are...

Now, does anyone really care about this? No?? Good. Now let's forget I ever mentioned it. Please!
