I don't really keep those stats on hand, but if enough people are interested they are only a SQL all away

Yep... from the 'Top 10 posters' page. Reset it to 200 per page, go to the last page where posters have at least 1 post and do some simple calculations. Like I said, I am that sad!

Wow, nice work though Grant. I was curious myself, but would have never figured doing it that way.

Thanks!

Any figures for growth over time? BTW those people registering might just be using the search function. Which can't be a bad thing.

Well done, jeremy.

You would be amazed at the number of members who visit daily/weekly but *never* post.
