Lots of Hoo haw about ads and the like and none of it expected here but a few members kicking off about the fact that the users make the site and I would like to think I agree with this.

The simple fact is though it's all about the numbers in this.

Take your current post count to date. my example is 5,623

Divide this by the total amount of posts on ATS(I know this is skewed by other factors but deal with it)

Currently at 20,338,057.

Divide the little number by the bigger number and times by 100

In my case this is 0.02764

That is my contribution to ats as far as posts go.

I post quite a lot as well as far as things go lately.

here's my stats.

ave. threads per day: 0.5

ave. posts per day: 10.36

That is in simple terms over 10 posts a day on average and half a thread per day.

So on average I make a thread every other day and post 10 times a day yet my overall contribution to the site as a whole still comes out at 0.02764.

I am not so special that I deserve special treatment. Do the maths and ask yourself the same question.

Put it in real perspective and look up a member that has been here for over a decade and is also here everyday and the maths still works out as insignificant.

Add to that the fact that most of what I say is utter rubbish or a crap one liner and it really does put perspective into it.

Deal with the ads people, your not that special.

I am English, it is maths please.

Go on and do it for interests sake.

See how valuable your "user input" actually is.

Then remember that about 98% of what you say is actually irrelevant.

Well, if you round it up and convert to dollars, you could say you put your three cents in around here

Honestly I contribute very little to the site other than the odd opinion in a second.

I wish I had the time to really put together some posts like some of the real hard hitters, that's why I come (to read) other than watching the chit chat.

Some of the most amazing posts on archaeology, astronomy, new inventions,etc is all gathered and wrote about here. You can find a lot of it dispersed on the net but here is the only place I see it in one place, it's amazing.

Maybe the little bit at a time method would work, I'll have to give it a go.

Adds aren't so bad, weird sometimes but not so bad.

I allow all, the site isn't free for the operators.

I am glad you said that and going off topic for a bit here.

For a while now since I came back I have been aware that something was missing on ATS but could not for the life of me think of what it was. It has been bugging me for nearly a month. About a week ago it got too much so set my mind a task to figure out what was wrong. The best way to explain it was like a familiar room but with a familiar painting not on a wall.

Anyhows I was sat there earlier and in my mind a program running in the background went "BUZZYWIGS" Aha I thought why is buzzywigs not here any more. Fearing the worst I came back and did a search for you and low and behold you have been here all along.

Do not worry I thought paths will cross again and about 2 hours later things fall back into place.

Anyhow what percentage of ATS have you contributed to just to at least try and stay on topic?

Not with a thread like this though.

Now If I had the definitive JFK was killed proof thread that would bring the inquisitive in for now and ever more then maybe that would generate some cash but really?

This was never meant to be a pissing contest and agree that a lot of members do make a contribution, more of a leveller of sorts to put things in perspective.

Always like your threads and contributions.

You may want to grab a breath of fresh air if you see things winking at you.

As to contributions then only time will tell.

Pretty impressive in truth.

Now deduct how much of that was just shooting shizzle

I prefer a different form of calculation, where the maths is much simpler.

There are approximately 500 new topics per week.
I regularly provide at least one of them.
That is (approximately) 0.2 per cent of current thread content.

There's no equation for that! However:

I like that and that would put you round about in the top 1000 in threads alone. Edit: yes I know I got this wrong....

Add posts to that and you could you consider yourself a contributor?

Then ask if you feel that you are owed something?

Asking because of the nature of the thread and not directed at you personally.

No, I don't feel I'm owed anything (though I would not actually refuse a reward).
Admittedly, I have the luxury of not needing to complain about ads, because my total number of posts (I think) reduces my exposure to them. You can call that a reward which is already available.

Agreed and that is kind of my point here.

You have earned the right to less adds but the actual contribution to the site is minimal at best and I am the same.

Most of what we have said however will never benefit ATS as not that many people google such nonsense.

A lot of people google religious stuff.
My first thread on Revelation used to be the top Google result for a search on the phrase "silence in heaven", and can still be found (I've just checked) at the top of the third page.
