Is there a valuable prize for the closest guess? A bumper sticker perhaps?

I guess Monday the 31st 15:00 Eastern.

Well based on the last day or so we should hit it by Saturday, but as the weekends are always slow I'll be conservative and pitch for Tuesday 1st November at 15:00 GMT.

Ahh, ever the pessimist . Actually, based on the current average of 17 subscriptions per day, and the current total being around 1740, we should be there in 15 days, which is about the 11th of November. But it's so variable that I wouldn't want to predict (oh - except that I already have, and I'm obviously an optimist ).

Think we still are in terms of posts and I know what you mean but sometimes it can be a little to slow

So how many of the total that are members right now have never posted or only 1 or 2? Having a lot of members is one thing but it's more interesting how many ACTIVE members there are out of the total. I'd made a guess that you only have 25 really active, another 25 that are moderately active and maybe another 25 that are sorta active. With another 25 that are sometimes active and post a few times a week or so.

Jay, does this software count the guests as part of the total number of Views of a message? I know other software does, which gives a false sense of numbers on a message. I get this all the time on Zuga that there have been 100 views and only 2 replies. I explain to them that we get a lot of guests that come through (80 or so at any one time) and view everything but they can't post as a guest. But the view count does increment because of it.

Since we can only see the top 10 posters, it's hard to get a judge of how many active posters there really are without keeping tabs of who actually posts in the messages.

I just did a quick resort of the member list by posts and found 4 pages (at 30/page) of members that have posted >25 messages.
