    I just noticed the total amount of posts on the TreoCentral discussion page and did some calculations. The top ten posters on the board account for roughly 12% of the total posts (203,440). The total amount of registered posters is 17,194 as of 10.40 am EST Jan. 25, 2003.

    MarkEagle is tops at 1.6% of all posts
    Toby is at 1.4%
    ****-Richardson is at 1.3%
    Yardie and Septimus (aka DietrichBohn) is at 1.2%
    Homer, Toolkit, Miradu, JHromadka (James) and Yorick is at roughly 1% respectively.

    Compare these numbers to the rest of the registered posters:
    (100% - 12%)/(17,194 - 10) = 0.005% on average (equivalent of 10 posts).
    My life is in my Treo... Where is yours?

    but have you considered that these people have been on this board since it opened - and when it was really booming?

    There are many loyal people on the board that have not been here since the start - (I did not get into Visors until 2002 when I recieved my Neo as a birthday gift) and they certainly account for a good chunk of the posts.

    and the same - those are sharp math skills

    yardie--please see my edit above (in case you read my earlier message and thought i was being a butthead)

    in case you didn't, I mistyped "thing" for "thinking" when posting before, which changes meaning of my post entirely...

    Well, if you average the number of posts by the number of days each top 10 poster has been a member, the numbers are still impressive...

    MarkEagle 2.81 (average posts per day)
    Toby 3.05
    ****-richardson 3.19
    yardie 2.28
    septimus 2.15
    homer 1.80
    ToolkiT 2.23
    miradu 1.96
    Jhromadka 1.30
    Yorick 2.14

    I guess the real question is what that means? I think that the top 10 accounting for 12% is pretty good, all things considered. It means that although there is quite a bit of "noise" on the boards (so much I gave up trying to follow or even open most threads a long time ago), there is still a "core group" of folk that provide continuity.

    I am happy to note that I am no longer the "youngest" in the top ten in terms of how long I've been registered at VC/TC.

    ...of course, I just bought a gamecube and started a new semester, so I'll probably drop out of the top ten soon enough (through, frankly, I'm suprised I'm still in there, I have been nearly MIA for awhile now...)

    I think this point was touched on under Inane Ramblings (although what point hasn't been touched over there?) (or is that tetched?) can we (we being Yardie) further develop this by word count per post? Are the frequent posters posting so much because they post mostly short posts?

    Toby and ****-richardson don't know the definition of "short"!

    While I'm guilty of an occasional "short" post, I've always maintained that it's "quality" over "quantity". Post count has no real bearing... (though it is nice to be King! ).

    Mikey sounds like Paul Rugg?



    footnote: Paul Rugg was the voice actor for the character Freakazoid.

    actually, I had to go look up the actor's last name; I almost put in "Paul Dini" who's a producer of various superhero cartoons.

    anyway, random useless info is my joie de vivre. or coup de tat. Voila? anyone know French? what the Hairy Hepzibah am I trying to say?

    I teach French and I don't have a clue what you're trying to say. Hrmmm....maybe if you used fewer words....

    Votre raison d'etre, n'est ce pas? (Don't know how to do the accent thingy, a circumflex? if i remember any HS/Undergrad French)

    isn't it "coup d'etat?" Lord, NOW we're misspelling in a foreign language.

    You obviously haven't read many of my, or Josh's (d-r) posts. We're some of the most long-winded SOBs on the planet. On the bright side, in the olden days we might have been prolific writers to the editor in the dead-tree press to express all of those rambles (or perhaps committed to institutional factilities - BTW, isn't it strange how that phrase can be applied to asylums, schools, and government offices? hmm). Imagine all the trees saved by the simple existence of this web board.

    Joie de vivre is an enthusiasm for life (literally joy of life). Coup d'état is literally blow/strike of state; idiomatically an overthrow of a government or leader. You're probably thinking of raison d'être, though, or reason for existing (reason to be literally).
