I'm often amazed at how many posts some of our most dedicated members make on the forums. Some of the members who've been here the longest have a staggering number of total posts. Of course, the amount of time they've been here plays a part in calculating how truly active they are on the forums. I wanted to see who the most prolific members in terms of post frequency are on a.net. So, using the list of registered users, I made some calculations. My personal hunch for #1 turned out to be right! Some of the people at the top of the list may surprise you:
1) Yyz717: 6938 posts in 20 months = about 11.5 posts per day!
2) EGGD: 8617 in 26.5 mos = 10.8 ppd
3) jwenting: 6152 in 24 mos = 8.5 ppd
3) KROC: 9169 in 36mos = 8.5 ppd
5) Singapore_Air: 7177 in 30 mos = 8.0 ppd
5) Alpha 1: 6484 in 27 mos = 8.0 ppd
7) L-188: 9510 in 46 mos = 6.9 ppd
7) Superfly: 7450 in 36 mos = 6.9 ppd
Numbers are approximate (especially due to my rounded 'month' calculation), so some of the extremely close 'ties' may not quite be accurate. Also, some of these members may CURRENTLY be more or less busy than the calculated average. But these figures are, I'd say, quite accurate overall.
I was surprised to see jwenting and EGGD so high in the list; they don't seem as 'active' to me, but i'm guessing this is just because their posts are less controversial and come up for deletion less often. Good job guys.
It was also surprising to see that L-188, the all-time post leader, was all the way down at number 7 (still not bad, out of 2000!) He'll still be the first to cross the 10,000 post-mark, but my money's on Yyz717 for 20,000.
It should also be noted that Alpha 1 and KROC have most likely each had several hundred posts deleted, so their numbers may be unfairly low.
One last point: I was only able to calculate for the people who had a whole whack of posts overall, so some of the newer members may well post more frequently. So, additions/corrections to this list may be in order from some newer members.
Calculate your own post frequencies if you wish, and let us know how active you are here!
Next flight.... who knows.
