This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

What's the criteria for measuring "active" members?  Posts per day or something of the sort?

Active members is something that the board itself governs; If I recall correctly, its the members who have logged in during the last month.

This month's are a little late due to technical difficulties, but here, as of Feb 3rd, 2007:

3853 Threads
68,038 posts
1,957 members
670 active members (35%)

This means that we have had a 5% decline in active membership, but you'll notice that we actually have more active members numerically now than we did a month ago.  This is because our overall membership has gone up (almost 500 new members in one month!), so of course as time goes by the percentage of active members will inevitably diminish.  I think its the number of active members itself that matters most.

And we have now surpassed the 2000 member level.

Just FYI, you have 909 members: That is, people who have signed up for an account.  You can find this by clicking on the "Members List" above.  As of today, it says:

"Showing results 1 to 30 of 909".  

It looks like the forum software counts anyone a member who browses the site from a unique IP address.  I myself am 5 "members" of the RPGSite (Logged in as a guest from 2 home PCs, 3 work PCs). I tested this out earlier on a similar forum, then on RPGSite, by changing my static IP reloading the page. Then I did it again. I watched the Member count go up one more hit each time I added an IP and reloaded.

No idea how "Active Members" is calculated. Registered users who signed in within the month? You'd have to look through the software man pages to find out what it means.

Still, 909 actual "I registered for membership" Members is still a lot. You can probably break 1,000 in under a year of being online, which is really remarkable.

That's not true, Andy.  I know for a fact that there are 2133 members here now, since I regularly have to go around banning one or two a day, and you ban them by their member number.

Why the discrepancy? I'm not sure. The members list might only be people who enabled the listing option their profile, or it might be that they're the ones who aren't banned (though I doubt that; while I'd figure about one in every 3-5 members is a spambot, I don't think there's any way the ratio is over 50%).

So I'm not sure why that discrepancy appears to exist, but I assure you we have 2133 registered members.  Granted that a sizeable number (in the hundreds at least) are spambots that have been banned. But the same is pretty well true of EVERY RPG site. I can't begin to imagine how many spambots RPGnet gets per day, considering how many we do.

The one place where you're right is about this site being a resounding success.  Last year was all about me setting up one of the most successful RPG blogs in the hobby; and now this year has been all about setting up one of the most successful new Forums in the hobby. So much for my detractors.  :hehe:

That's a good question, I pretty well dropped the ball on this, didn't I? After a while it seemed kind of pointless since it was clear that the site was doing very well and no longer needed careful monitoring for "momentum".

As of today, we have:

6010 threads
131 536 posts
3228 members
364 active members (12%)

So interestingly, we've doubled in absolutely every respect except membership.  At the same time, back then was before we'd put in newer and better ways of blocking spammers from signing up, so we'd get one or two new spammer members a day, which probably screwed up the real percentage of active members.
It certainly feels to me like our "active members" are MORE active now than they were back at the start of the year.

thanks!  it didn't seem necessary to update that sort of thing monthly.  maybe twice a year, or quarterly instead?  just for the hell of it, i mean.

Threads: 11,700
Posts: 285,936
Members: 2,131

There was a cull of non-active members and spammers at some point last year, which explains why the total number is lower than in 2007.

EDIT: The number of people who have posted at least once in the last 30 days stands at 262 (12.29%). The number of members who have posted at least once in 2009 is 436 (20.46%). If you add those who have posted at least once since May 15 of last year, the number is 753 (35.34%). This only counts actual posters, and not people who just logged in last month, so it's not the same parameter that Pundit used in 2007.
