Rounded up I get 0.012. But I am not sure of the point you are making.

That figure does not consider how many posts I have contributed since the date I joined against the total posts made after I joined

Source from : www.abovetopsecret.com...







Total member accounts: 309,685

members who have posted:169,023

percentage who have posted: 55 % (So more than half the members have NEVER posted a thing)

members with 20 or fewer posts: 106,765

members with 20 to 500 posts: 33,590

members with 500 to 1,00 posts: 2,995

members more than 1,000 posts: 3,539

New member accounts: Past 24 hours: 37

New member accounts: Past 7 days: 208

New member accounts: Past 30 days: 985

New member accounts: Past Year: 11,754



So you are actually in the top 1% of contributing members as only 3,539 have surpassed 1,000 posts. And I know for sure past members are no longer posting on here. It doesn't say how many members have surpassed 2,000 or 3,000 posts


But if you look here : www.abovetopsecret.com...

Then (at present) I make you something like the 415th in the list of heaviest contributors in terms of posts created EVER on ATS.

If you go through the list of people with more posts then many of them haven't returned for a long while.

So actually you really are playing your contribution down by doing the maths but doing the wrong maths.

Regards MM

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.




This was never intended as a put down thread and I personally have benefited from your postings especially on biblical teachings.

I simply wanted to put into perspective the actual contribution to the site we all make in order to make certain members aware and gain something of a true perspective.

Even SO comes in at a really low figure and I imagine a lot of his posts are saying "shut up"

You can't make me math!


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.



Maths just sounds odd to me. But I will go with it.

I once created a thread that got 9149 posts and 51 flags in around 8 months.
It got shut down due to size and some questionable content farther on in the thread,
but to this day, it has been my own personal best for ATS, for better or for worse,
it was an awesome thread.

c(_) *sip*

As far as doing the math goes, meh...

lol

I figure any thread that gets 25 to 30 flags is doing alright and those members deserve a GOOD JOB!
Not that lower flag counts means anything bad,
but if you get enough more people read them.

And thread upkeep is a big part of contributing.
IMO

Look, what are you trying to say.......
I have never made a thread but I do post on other people's threads. I have never made a thread cos I don't know how,and if I did make a thread it would probably be shot down by the likes of people like you. Are you trying to boast or something. I think every member is valuable.

You should go back to the beginning and reread his OP.

Number of posts divided by content is how much conversation one generates.

I did re read and I still reads like boasting to me. And I dont care about ads as I know they will never get me to buy anything and I know they are needed to fund the site.

I am confused...if I multiply the answer I got when I divided the total site post number, by my post count, by one hundred as you recommended, then I will have a fairly substantial number. Even without multiplying the answer by one hundred, I am already above the sub decimal level.

What did I do wrong, except post like a behemoth of course?

Previous to being multiplied by one hundred, my calculator read 1,286 and some idiotic looking decimals.
After being multiplied by one hundred, it read 128,607 and yet more idiotic decimals.

I realize I am new so I really can not do much math on the subject, besides I love to hate "maths" of all kinds. I do believe I will contribute to your thread either way.

Okay, everything I contribute is 100% user generated. So, I guess the answer to your question without all the hooey balooey is 100%.

Your math is a little too simple to provide any perspective on the issue. What you need to figure out is amount of traffic generated by your content, the percentage of the total content only matters if all posts drive equal amount of traffic, which they don't. In order to really get any accurate idea of level of contribution you'd need access to information we can't get and much more complicated math.

One of the first things to figure out would be how to assign credit for the traffic being generated, for example if you start a thread that goes for 10 pages you have generated far more traffic than just posting a few lines in a reply. Then there is also the issue that as contributing members not only are we providing the content, but in the process of providing the content we are also generating page views/traffic of our own.

I don't think anyone is asking to get paid to post here, but I know plenty are at least a little pissed about being asked for money when they make theirs off us.
