        Some of those 12,000 odd have computers permanently connected via an IV drip and logged into this forum while others have to swim across vast reaches of ocean just to get online.......

        ......sheesh, where the hell did that explanation come from?!!!..... (I have a vivid imagination!!)

          Every once in a while I calculate how many active members there are. If you only count users who have made 100 posts, there are only 413 active members. I don't think I could do it, but it would be interesting to find out how many different users have posted in the last 3 months.

            There's an option in vBulletin AdminCP to display total member count and active members on the forum home page in the footer. The active member display (if enabled) shows the number of members that have logged in within a set number of days (the number of days is adjustable in AdminCP too).
            'Active members' display is currently turned off here.

              At Members List, Search Members, Advanced Search you can specify Last Post is After yyyy-mm-dd, and it shows 1156 users posted in the last three months (and 1930 in the last six months).

              So I guess, of the 12,000 users who have registered, only about 2,000 are still active.

                That is what i meant, I noticed 95% of all the registered users haven't posted anything. Was just curious.

                  Many of them come to research. Many MANY of them are banned spammers. (but I think they still show as a numbered member)

                    Alrighty then. Now that I am a vdrum guy I will post here daily, except weekends. I have to fight for PC time with the kids then.

                    Anyway.I have my own site to manage. I am a Mod on KISSfansite, I am a member of accuweather's site as well. And all of this while at work.

                    I may be spread a little thin. But I will be in from time to time.

                      That was what I figured as soon as I started reading this thread and also figured would have already been said by the time I read them all.

                      From what I've seen on this board probably way way more than half the registered members are really spammers that are banned or should be but never posted anything.

                        Yeah. Banning a member will prevent them logging in but will not remove them from the database. Only admin can physically delete members. However, deleting a member effectively removes their login email so they can then re-register with the same email address and post spam again. Better to leave them in the database as banned.

                          That is the way to do it. Leave in as banned in the database. I've seen this before on other boards.

                            We have 4300 banned users, probably about 4280 are spammers , and I would say that we have at least 1000 spammers that aren't banned.

                              I'm Here

                              I'm here, not sure what number posting this will be, but well below 100 I rather think.

                              I also don't log in very often as I don't like having the most resent posting at the top, I like to cycle through to the end posting (as when not logged in). Can't find a way to change that. Another reason my posting is low - bit of a nuisance to log in each time to post and then log out to get the chronological order I like.

                              BUT!!!! I do check Today's Posts repeatedly throughout the day (at work).

                              Finally I am not sure how much value I have to add to the forums at the moment. For the time being I am just being a bit of a sponge and amassing knowledge from the FAR more knowledgeable people out there.

                              Maybe I'll post some pics of my kit soon. Been living off SuperPuss' GAS to be honest
