The 700th member -- a few statistics
« on: Mon, 2011-11-14, 20:53:34 »
At this moment we have 699 members. Which means the 700th member is on its way.
Still, there's only a handful of people who are regular posters.

I love statistics, so let me share this with you:

This forum was set up in 2005. By the end of 2005 we had 369 members, of which 263 members actually posted. That's 71 percent! A lot of the members then, where very active and became regular members. We all remember Appelmoes??, Constable Hogweed, gelert, Moonloop and I'm sure there are more.

Some are still (fairly) active: bellanova, Deenfan, erik, JJ II, johninblack, kmorse, keyboardistmatt, maddox, mdread666, Peter, PH, Smegal, Teunis, The Butterfly Man. Well done everyone!

Even Clive shows up from time to time. ;)

At the end of 2006, 98 new members have joined. I think Bupie and funkster are the most active of 2006's members. ;D Also debsss, willowroolz and Crazy Diamond were fairly active, at least at that time.

In 2007 the amount of new members dropped again. Nicky, bluepony, and Draco are introduced along with 75 others.

2008 brought us people like Steve Jones, Iggy, Manatee and h9. Some still regularly post here and some a bit less regularly.

I think the latest 'new regular' is aswas, who registered in 2009. Although he has only posted two times this year.

In 2010 there were only two new members who actually posted. and this year there are 19 new members, but only three of them actually participated in topics.

So there's a true 'core' of members who stay loyal to the forum (;)) but there are many more who where either very active in the past (Appelmoes??, Moonloop, bluepony, Steve Jones) or never really active at all...

Perhaps it's an idea to email the members of the forum about the new album. Perhaps they'll renew their membership?
I want all these cool members back! >:(

Hey Paco, were you bored or something? :P Nah just kidding. Interesting read actually. I hope the number of members will rise again after the current tour and the release of the new album!

I don't remember him  ???

What I wonder most about is why Jonesy all of a sudden dropped out. He seemed to be quite happy being in the Room.

Just a bit.

I hope so too! *horns*

So I'v only dreamt that I'v been posting  ::)

You did not join in 2005, so that's why you were not in that list. I was only talking about the ones that joined in 2005 and were still active.

And this Paco guy, that's only nightmares  ;D

Nah, he's a great guy!

I don't remember him  ???

I'm sure you do. Hanin from Indonesia. He's very fond of Yes.

What I wonder most about is why Jonesy all of a sudden dropped out. He seemed to be quite happy being in the Room.

Yes. He was an extremely active member. Same for Appelmoes??.

Could they be dead? :o

About Steve, I feel the same about him.
I often wonder how he is doing and why he dropped out.
Would like to know the answer to that question.

About Appel, that's a different story.
A: he wasn't really into forums anymore, he also stayed away from the ayreon forum.
The whole forum concept just wasn't appealing anymore. The fun was gone.

But the other reason is actually a nice one, especially for him since he frequently wondered why he couldn't find the one thing he really needed: A girlfriend.

And last time we had contact, last April he still was very in luv. ;)

I don't think that we will see him again, not very soon that is, maybe in the future when he wonders how we're doing.

But, to return to the subject, I wonder how much of those 700 (+) members will be a regular on the board.

Hi, I was a member and renewed my attendance. I intend to take part in this forum on a regular basis.

But only when there is really something to say, not to "display" myself !  ;)

Cheers,
René

If your answer is Yes, please change your avatar signature for "License to display myself"  ;D

Back to the topic, I miss the transatlantic connection between M. Jones and Manatee. They were our super duo of Roomies, always pushing the titles games to another limit. And I still remember that pun that Steve did one day about Celine and Selene ...  :)

Hey man! That's great! Welcome back to the Shattered Room!

But when there's not really something to say, you could start a conversation yourself of course. There's always something to say. ;)

Well, it seems that the 700th member is strato who registered 13 November. Which is a bit odd, as this topic was opened on 14 November and then we had 699 members... ???
Anyway, we have 708 members now! ;D

Well, I last posted on October 24th 2011. That was months ago! I do look in from time to time being that The Shattered Room is on my bookmarks bar on Chrome...

Here's a diagram:

It's a bit crude I know, but there's only so much you can do when you lose both arms and both legs in a duel with King Arthur! 8)

(This doesn't apply to me, but it was a perfectly pointless thing to type out which makes me smile - slightly!) ;D

*horns*

There's also this small matter of Facebook...  ::)  :-\
