Just curios so I had I look into the member list and found there are at least 889 members with zero posts and zero guanxi. The curious thing is people who have zero posts but anywhere from 1 to 10 guanxi points! how did that happen?
The next intersting number (around 1,020 members) those with 1 to 5 posts and less the ten guanxi (one intersting note Cainaman who set up only to plug his business - way to go skinner, but I’m sure you have another ID there somewhere) most of these regestered in 2001 or 2002 and haven’t been heard from again. Those from 2003 make up the most frequent posts in this category, and many of those in the last few months. (Still a stretch to say Forumosa is attracting more quality)
6 to 10 posts 170 members varying guanxi mostly less than 20 points.
11 to 20 posts 162 members
21 to 30 posts 69 members
31 to 40 pposts 39 members
41 to 50 posts 28 members
51 to 60 posts 23 members
here it gets interesting. 60 to 110 posts 0 members. then the member list skips 50 members and we get 111 to 200 posts for 45 members
200 to 300 posts for 22 members
301 to 500 for 15 members
501 to 2872posts for 33 members (Sandman do you even have an offline life?)
What does it all mean. I do not know and I’m not trying to stir up any trouble here (remeber, i was just curious), and I know these numbers can be interpreted differently, this is just a quick and dirty count.
It seems that less the 4% of the members (100 posts and up) get any real use from this site. The bulk of the member list is made of 96% members with fewer than 60 posts.
What ever happend to the paring of the member list, and with numbers like this why bother to ban anybody that has been frequently contributing, formosa, et al.?
