Fun Analysis

I suppose this question is mostly geared towards Rob.

Of the 4,652 members on the board, the statistics define 3,623 as "active."

How is "active member defined?"

How many of these usernames are actually people and not bots/crawlers?

Do you get any activity statistics from the accounts that register and never post?

Just curious as to how much information can be gleaned from the inside about these members.

Re: Fun Analysis

I'd guess at least a third are bots. Wasn't it a big deal a while ago when we hit 2,000 members, brad201 or blake201 or something? I think La nominated him for mod.

Re: Fun Analysis

Go to Members List, sort by join date (most recent first) and the usernames make it pretty obvious they're bots. Has it been worse lately? Look how many signed up on the 15th Jan.

Sorry I forgot to reply to this.

Right now, the active member cut off time is set at 180 days. I would guess that 90% of the Active Users are spammers/bots, however this number should go down soon as the new security questions that are in place seem to be working better than the previous system.

Re: Fun Analysis

I also periodically purge users in the banned usergroup, so the member count can at times go down.
