  1. I was just looking at the site details, and >15,000 active members are listed. I was just wondering what you consider an active member (i.e how much activity in one span of time?)?

    I think Howard could be even happier if he saw that on his bank statement when he gets it at the end of the month..... in $USD :D

    I only rack up 6 and a bit...

    Nah I think it registers him editing others' posts as his "own" post so most of the post count may actually be edits of others' posts.

    No I dont think it does that because it still says it's their post by their name

    I think it's because he was probably like the earlier members that joined, Plus when he is loged on he answers like 1000 Security threads ;)

    Nope, not true. When I edit someones post, it`s still their post and doesn`t go on to my post count.

    My post count is all my very own lol.

    Timeparadox: Nice photoshop edit BTW lol.

    I joined Techspot in August of 2004. I`ve not been around anywhere near as long as some of our other members who`ve been here since 2002.

    As for the 13,247 active members, I`m not sure what that means exactly. Maybe Julio could tell us the answer to what constitutes an active member.

    Regards Howard :)

    So whom are the oldest members that have been around the longest? Just out of curiosity. And what ever happened to 'BoeingFixer'?

    You can find BoeingFixer`as last post HERE. It was from October of this year.

    As for members who`ve been here the longest, there`s lot`s of them.

    Phantasm66/Nodsu/Rick/Didou just to name a few. If you have the time and patience take a look HERE.

    Regards Howard :)

    Lets not forget RBS and SNGX now....

    I did say "just to name a few" I couldn`t possibly have named all the members who have been here the longest, but yes, you`re quite right our very own SNGX is certainly one of them lol(sorry for missing you out SNGX:blush: ).

    I believe RBS joined a little later in 2003 and was a big contributer to our forums for a long time.

    Regards Howard :)

    And longer than that, this one replaced the old forum on 8th February 2002. I joined earlier, can't remember if it was 2000 or 2001.

    I'm just going to go hide in a corner now.


    It's almost where I've been for quite a while. It seems my time for posting has gone kaput.

    Anywho, as Mict says most of the mods have been around since 2000 or before. I think I joined in 2000, SNGX in 1999 (The only reason I know that is we went to college together and he got hooked on 3dspotlight...now techspot)

    A lot longer than 2002. Thats just when this version of the board was created. We switched from a Jawbreaker board to vbullitin and the posts and join date weren't able to be switched. Before Jawbreaker we were on uBB. I joined back in the uBB days, Dec 1999 I believe.

    Nearly everyone with a join date of Feb 2002 was around with the old boards and switched over. Only a few of us are still around from the uBB days.

    I used to be quite active on the board, but I've been really busy and don't find much time to post. My posting record shows I haven't been posting here much since Mid-September.

    So, what does constitute an Active member?

    Far be it for me to bump a really old thread, but I didn`t see any reason to start a new thread for this question. ;)

    I would like to know exactly what constitutes an Active member? I don`t believe this question has ever been answered. Well, certainly not to my knowledge.

    Taken from HERE.

    I know it`s not that important, but it`s something I`d like to know the answer to.

    Regards Howard :)
