I’ve enjoyed reading though this thread. (Better late than never!) So, I figured I’d share a few numbers I found interesting.
Total number of members: 6774 (as of this writing)
97.2% of the members are in the “Buffer Underrun” category.
Only 2.8% of the members have achieved the “CD-RW Thug” status (or better).
Only 1.7% of the members have become “CD-RW Players” (100+ posts.)
The median number of posts per member is 2.
47.4% of the members have a total of 1 or fewer posts.
20.8% of the members have never posted.
I guess the low median number is due to many members doing a “Hit and Run” (you post a problem, get your answer, and off you go), or just browsing.
