Speaking of a gabby lot - here is something really interesting:

Of the total posts (at 2:52 PM May 25, 2004), the following members are responsible for 35% of all posts.

Ranked according to gabbiness by the blah blah meter:

:blah1::blah1::blah1::blah1::blah1::blah1::blah1: [b:e2f964e176]2800 - pastorway[/b:e2f964e176]
:blah1::blah1::blah1::blah1::blah1::blah1: [b:e2f964e176]2418 - Bladestunner 316[/b:e2f964e176]
:blah1::blah1::blah1::blah1::blah1: [b:e2f964e176]2322 - Scott Bushey[/b:e2f964e176]
:blah1::blah1::blah1::blah1: [b:e2f964e176]2207 - webmaster [/b:e2f964e176]
:blah1::blah1::blah1: [b:e2f964e176]2197 - Paul manata[/b:e2f964e176]
:blah1::blah1: [b:e2f964e176]1991 - joshua[/b:e2f964e176]
:blah1::blah1: [b:e2f964e176]1941 - puritansailor[/b:e2f964e176]
:blah1: [b:e2f964e176]1791 - fredtgreco[/b:e2f964e176]

So 8 out of 750 members, or 1% of the membership, has posted over a third of the posts!!!

WOW.

But Phillip,about 33%of the posts by the top 8 were throw-away lines or silly symbols.Don't celebrate quantity over quality.Of course,66%of the posts had substance.I have benefited greatly from most of the content.

On the Puritan Board, there are:
50617 posts [/quote:526942c9d6]

A few observations:
Our number of posts per day has increased over time. Back when we were just breaking 10,000 posts we were at about 40 -50 posts per day, and now we are doing over 120 posts per day. And that was barely a year ago, if that. Calvinist Kid wrote to 10,000th post, Pastorway the 20,000th and 30,000th, I believe. 40,000 came while I was off line for a while, and 50,000 happened over the weekend, when I wasn't home.

The number of new members per day has dropped off somewhat. The last half of last year and the first half of this year saw a great deal of activity in the membership list. Many came on board, and most of them posted. It also became clear that we had many visitors, as the number of views often exceeded the number of members logged in at some given moments. The Puritan Board had become a popular site on the I-net.

As the membership grew, so did the diversity in interests. New forums were opened, and new moderators appointed. As the average number of posts per day climbed, it became next to impossible for any one person to read them all. For myself, I sometimes need to be reminded which forums I am involved in and need to read, as there are many other forums and active threads of interest as well. I sometimes don't even have time to respond to every post I wish to respond to.

But of the greatest interest to me are the friendships and fellowships that this Board has generated. I am firmly persuaded that this Board is one of a kind in that category. There is a pastoral quality to this Board: there is no fear of speaking your mind, yet there is a common restraint and respect; the value of the person takes precedence over the opinions expressed. We have gotten to know each other as real people. We may not know everyone by face, but we soon learn to know each other by character. And character grows out of godliness.

John,
Excellent job of playing board statistician!

The reason that the numbers for new members have dwindled is because we are now restricting membership.
