bump

And a note about membership numbers...

The system used to delete memberships after 3 months of inactivity. However, sometime around the summer of 2008 (when 2.0 was launched) this automatic deletion system got a glitch.

If you look through the membership roll, sorted by 'date joined', you will see what I mean - there are a lot of folks who joined between June '08 and the present who have never logged in again. But some HAVE dropped off...so the membership roll is inflated, but not completely ridiculous.

Sploofus gets over 100 new members every day, but lots of them never log in again. There are also still plenty that get automatically dropped each day.

Many many many members just do the TQOTD and never even click on any other part of the site, so you cannot judge the membership numbers by the number of different names you see appearing in the BBS or on specific games.

FINALLY! It is about time that the over inflated membership numbers are being investigated. But the problem is worse than Sploofizz says.

At 0300 EST the tally of so called members was 70,998. There are 1420 pages.
Everyone, as we once did starts out at level 1.0 and 500 points. Answer one TQOTD and you move to level 1.1.

Starting at member 70,998 and working forward toward the leader, it takes till member 57,491 till someone has 1.0 and 600 points. That is 13,507 members who were/are at the bare minimum.

From there it takes till member 39,352 to find the first person at level 1.1. That is 31,646 members but the members who are at level 1.0 are more numerous than that. They continue periodically . Member who occupies spot 9,464 is at level 1.0.

It takes till member 31,011 to find the first person to reach level 1.2, that is 39,987 members. That is the first person, others are at level 1.1 or 1.0

It takes till member 24,770 for someone to reach level 2.0. That is a minimum of 46,228 members out of 70,998 who are below level 2.0. That is way over 50% and I would say if all members were counted only about 25% of all Sploofus members are above level 2.0.

I have presented similar stats in the past and have received nothing but abuse.

Too all, have a great week.

Spacecat/Richard...I'm seriously impressed with the work you must have done to gather that information! Looking at my TQOTD rank of 334 of 71,102, and knowing that I certainly haven't gotten lots of my questions correct so far this month, I agree that there can't be all that many folks that join and remain to take part in Sploofus. I think a more accurate description of the 71K is individual folks who have visited the site at least once during Sploofus's existance.

I have no problem, however, in turning in my vote for the total number of "whatever is being counted" achieved by the end of 2010.

I'm sure I guessed, but I don't know what it was.
Did that thread get deleted?
