    Is edugeek as large as it thinks it is?

    Edugeek boasts almost 22,000 members. If you take into account the number of members with a post count of 100 or more only 2.6% of members currently make regular contributions. Food for thought.

    @RingOfFlame:

    So all those with less than 100 posts, you would class as?

    ive got less than 20 posts but ive been visiting this website almost everyday for the past year. Probably reading every thread.

    So i dont think you can work it out with amount of posts.

    I think you are confusing size with reach.

    ...And besides, it's not about membership levels, it's about the knowlege within, and the traffic we receive. As we don't make it compulsory to register to get answers (which would have us at least 10 times larger in member levels than we currently are) you don't get to see a fraction of the visitors. I would suggest you stop being so literal and open your mind a little.

    Woah, take it easy - it was only a honest observation from RingOfFlame. This has been mentioned a few times before and everytime it does people get very defensive all of a sudden. Dunno why....chill out !!!

    I suspect many members (me included) only post when they feel they have something worthwhile to say.... I read far more threads here than I could/would ever want to contribute to. In many threads I am in awe of the technical knowledge of some people and I am only too grateful to be able to tap into their knowledge for free through Edugeek.

    Likewise, the amount of threads I read verse the amount I comment in.

    Generally the answers or my shared opinion are already expressed in the post, alas I don't contribute to the confusion.

    What does bug me though, is when a user asks a question, and you get 50 replies with other users saying what they've got.

    I.e. I have server 2003 and want to use x service to-do y, and you get a million posts saying I have server 2003 and use x all the time, they also use z to-do y.

    How is that relevant to what the question original was. Just the way things roll.

    +1 to what broc said, the amount of technical knowledge on this forum is enormous and should never be taken for granted, each day I learn at least one new thing from here

    If only that were true of everyone!

    It seems there are some here who only post at all when it is an opportunity to flame, troll or generally stir up trouble.

    Maybe its time to remove people who never contribute anything useful?
