How many active members do we have? Some people join and only post one or two things and never come back.
Sonnie used to cull non-active members - ones that were not here for a year or more. He stopped doing that when he found out that a lot of other forums aren't doing this. If you were to add in all the inactive members culled over the years I think Sonnie said we'd be close to 80,000 members right now. And I think he stopped culling just this year sometime so I doubt there are many inactive users. If I were to guess I'd bet there isn't too many at the moment - less than 500. This time next year there might be quite a few though. But who knows?

A couple years ago I checked out the numbers at the other big forum. Their stats had boasted 700,000 members yet there were only half of that in the member list. And less than half of those in the member list were active in the past year.

Re: Congrats on 50,000 Members!

Remember too that active members are not necessarily those who post, but also those who read. There are many who come here to search out information and only read, never posting. "Active" is defined as "logging in" in the forum world.

And... the last member who joined was member #77,198.

Re: Congrats on 50,000 Members!

It's nice that even with 50,000 active members I can still browse a lot of threads and recognize many of the avatars for especially active users. We have some seriously dedicated community members here, whose participation is invaluable. I guess this is a congrats to Sonnie, and thanks to those members who put in the extra time and effort to make the Shack the success that it is.

BTW... new logo!?

Thanks Owen... we appreciate the compliments!

Yes... we are experimenting with a new logo. We wanted to get away from the FOX similarity and get something original for ourselves.
