    Question Critic asks :: How many "regularly active" members do u think there are in the 68,584

    Good Morning, Good Afternoon and Good Evening WHTers, another question for you

    Not much for me to say really, subject line says it all.

    How many do you think??

    That number's the total amount of registered WHTers that there are if you're unsure.

    Look at it as if it were one of those "guess how many marbles there are in that jar" things.

    hmm, good point there timechange.com

    hmm, well i suppose you could either give a range or multiple figures as i would say regularly active for me, would be anywhere from daily/every other day to just under weekly say.

    So there's either two possible figures or a range i guess when t comes to activity, probably shoul've said that earlier.

    Oh and there is a bit of string hanging from one of the lights in the room i am in, it's a couple of inches, how's that for ya

    I would say about 3,000-3,500 regularly active members that visit at least once a week..

    and 90 seconds later you will be able to see this post..

    I say 2 - 5% of the registered population post. I think 20 - 40% have made at least 1 post and the rest have over 5 posts or more.

    "2929 posted in the last week" is a good stat to run with for "regularily active". That being said, approximately 4.3% of WebHostingTalk's total userbase is regularily active.

    I would have said about 4.3% of WHT's userbase is regularly active. Honest! I would have!

    FINE!

    If we consider the visited in the past week stat as regularly active, it comes to 7.5% of WHT members (based on the current number of registered members fresh off the homepage).
