Thanks for the stats! Very interesting! Looking forward to an even more awesome 2009!!
 
:eek: Wow the numbers are amazing. I didn't realize how much I've contributed until just now reading the list(s).

The banned numbers are interesting as well.

500 hours on the phone... wow. Hate to see the phone bill(s).

Way to go Terry... Post-Whore Supreme! :bow:
 
I log an average of 3-4 hours a week on the phone on board matters, but thankfully have free LD to US and Canada so it doesn't cost me a fortune.

Most of the bans, are spam bots that we boot asap.
Of the 54 'normal' bans, the majority of those were multiple account violators. There were probably only 5-6 real "Problem" bans last year where people forgot they were guests and tried to throw around their "importance".
 
Thank you Bob and also for the staff for your support and work behind the curtain so the rest of us can post in peace and not see what is required to keep the machine working. :) :asian:


I noticed that I was in the totals for posts and threads for the history of this site, but not for last year.

This is actually a good thing. It means that new members are encouraged to post and feel free to post and express their opinions and the long time members opinions are not just repeated.

This is a good balance from my point of view.



Thank you
