Yeah, I don't have many of them. But I do have one that is recurrent.

I was thinking. If there are 37,711 members, and 711 of them decided on the samd day to write a quiz, what would happen? I mean, obviously 99.99999999% (a guesstimate) post in Salty. What if everyone did? As more people join, and of course they will exponentially, how does the site handle more people submitting quizzes? I guess it wouldn't affect much else, but it's kind of like church. 10% are the most vocal and active, but you never see/hear much from the remaining 90%. Except, here nowhere near 10% submit/post. Seems like a silly thing to worry about, but with 88,000 members, the newest quizzes wouldn't stay on the front page but a few minutes. Is this an upcoming problem (though a nice problem for Justin to have) or....what?

meh....a good problem to have.

You just queue new ones in for members to see by categories they choose, I guess could be one way.

I just know I spend a lot of time here when only a small percentage actively participate. I think this could be more than a minor obsession if huge numbers participated. And that's just in Salty.

I can see receiving a Sploofus email saying, "WORDPUZZLE WINNER! YOU ARE #22,576 FOR AUGUST 24." Can my tiny self esteem even handle a Sploofus with phenomenally huge numbers of active participants? Sure would like to find out, though.

Well, at least you're not "37,792 out of 37,792"...

that's suck and you'd just have to suck it up!

On average, less than 300 people currently play each WP.

Sploofizz, do you guys ever talk up ways to get more of the present members actively involved? Or is that even a goal of anyone's?

Would you mind telling us how many average play WM/WR a day? (Which I know is much weirder to tell because there are so many more a day than WPs.)

Would you even want us to talk up more participation, or are you pretty well satisfied?
