Greetings LQ! - Member Count Reaches 200,000
 
As many might have noticed the registered member count of LinuxQuestions.org (LQ) has exceeded 200,000. Greetings LQ and regards to the root and the moderators.

On the other hand I couldn't stop wondering how many of them are real (Edit: active) members. This matter has been discussed severeal times in LQ. So I'm not going to start it all over again.

Anyway, for everyone out there LQ has been a great help. I mean everyone. Ones who register only to find an answer, ones hang out all the time, etc and etc. everyone.

Once again great work LQ. Keep it up.


Note: The Wikipedia entry for LinuxQuestions.org is also updated about the member count.

A majority of the members should be real or were real at one time. Inactive members with 0 posts are pruned after so many months, etc by Jeremy every so often.

Take note we are very shy of 2 Million Posts currently as well.. ;)

I'm very pleased. I only just joined. I could have been the 200,000th. Could have won a daft prize, or even a big one.

I don't know much about Linux but I have got started. Before that, I believed in it. The web is democratic in that no-one can fully control it, not even dictators. Software has to go the same way. As a computer teacher (of office stuff) I've been spreading the word for the last three years.

I've even had what I thought was a good Idea, but I'll find a more suitable thread to fit it on.

you are user ID 213648

Ya! Linuxquestions.org is reaching millions...
but many are inactive....why.....???
out of a crowd of 200,000 there are only around 1,000 people active... at a moment of time ...

and those who are....are the ones who are regular...

Whatever may be...this...

LQ has grown beyond boundaries and has evolved into a big and superb FORUM!.....
Congrats..

I believe that LQ has helped me emerge from a newb into a normal Linux user, who is moving into more advanced stuff. I think LQ Rox. I think the best way to learn Linux is to visit LQ. That says it all.

This is a side effect of our popularity. Someone may sign up, post a question once and get an answer. After that, they search the forums and all their problems are answered that way without them ever having to post again. And not everyone is interested in helping others so they don't answer posts.
