It would be more impressive if I did not suspect that like 90% of those people only came to the site 10 times or less and only posted 5 times or less. Have any of you gone through the Members list alphabetically trying to remember someones name? Takes forever, and you get to see thousands of people with 0 or 1 post who for whatever reason, made a membership and then dropped out.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

It's true that not everyone posts on the forums, however many members visit UM just to read and/or subscribe to the articles. UM is a great online resource for information.

Very true... it would be great if a good even just 80% of the people made posts ..I guess for many... they happen to google a certain topic and find UM as one of the top searches... the want to go in and make a post...and leave ..not bothering to stick around

I have done this to yahoo once... I only registered to make a post or two and vanished... but I can't say I did that on UM  lol...not a mission haha

I do that with the Oregonian online newspaper. I only read articles that pop up on various searches and only occationally leave a comment.

I guess a lot of those people could be just reading and watching. Really, if you look at just about every thread, there is like 10 to 20 views for every post.

Wonder if that includes closed accounts. I had changed my user name twice in the past and started over with a new account once.

I don't think changing your user name would add to the count.. you would still have the same account.. If you close that account and open a new one to start afresh, then yes I think that will add to the count of members joined

Looking at the exact total to date -> 92,716 members have joined UM.   Well if you were to take in to account - those that have closed their accounts and later came back with new accounts.. and even those that have trolled, got banned and came back  over and over  .... that still would not scratch the surface of the 90 odd thousand acounts registered with UM... I would dare say those that have done that would not reach  1% of the total

Just guessing mind you !!

There's one I can think of, that must have contributed at least 10% by doing that.
Naming no names, but he pops up repeatedly in the UFO forum, usually with a message from God to humanity, with a new name each time (or some variation on the same one), then is banned after about 10 minutes and the thread disappears once more into oblivion.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

I do do that with various things; this is one of the only two or three places I've stuck around at, actually. I registered with our local paper just the other day to complain about the traffic. I doubt that I'll bother doing anything else.

10% would be over 9,000 accounts.... :lol:

It might seem like he's registered a lot but in reality he'd have a long way to go to reach even three figures.
