We keep going at this rate Martin, and you are going to have to contact Bill Gates and see if he has any spare servers laying around!
Thank you again for all you do !

For me we are not 16000 members, why go to jocks page 458 and have a look 1414 days no post that member is no longer a memeber he is long gone.
Many more like that.

GMman – they are all members. We don’t know how they use the site. Maybe they just look; maybe they wait for the eMag; maybe they are building something magnificent and are waiting for the unveiling… or maybe they used it once for a vital piece of their woodworking project and we made a difference.. we don’t know..
so if we have 16,000 members, we have 16,000 members regardless of how involved they are in the site.

I’m celebrating!

CONGRATULATIONS MARTIN!!!!

I agree with Debbie.

For instance a lot of people belong to a union, church, or whatever, but don’t participate.

But they still like belonging to something.

MsDebbieP I just looked at 100 pages of 35 members a page and one year to 4 years no post I maybe wrong but that is the way I look at it and I know for sure that 2 members are gone for good and they still show active and I am sure we have many more like that, I am glad also to see the big number too but is it a true number?

perhaps you are looking for a different number … the number of people who post something in a specific time frame (weekly, monthly, yearly etc).

As for “real members” – if they haven’t deleted their profile then they are still members.

What GMman says cannot be totally ignored. You can put some time limit during which if a member does not participate his name should be automatically deleted. If he feels, he can join again. If someone wants only to look make a separate list of onlookers. Although one feels elated to look at large numbers they should be of truly participating members. LJ will still flourish.

Who said this milestone is related to just Active members and what’s your definition of Active member anyways?

I think if they’ve signed up for Lumberjocks they are a Jock. Cut/Dry. Congrats Martin, You are a miracle man, I don’t know how you keep up. God Bless you and thanks for such a great site, you have created something unique on the internet and you are making a difference in the world with it. Thank You. Mike

Martin I don’t want to start trouble here but if a member sighed on 4 years back and never was back on is that a member? If I am wrong please explain.

Well for now there is no rule saying that when you don’t get back for 4 years your membership will be automatically terminated. However If any member asks me to remove one’s account I always proceed promptly. I’d sure like to see more members with posts but hey.. with around 50 posts per member we’re still one of the most active sites on Internet (not just woodworking). You simply cannot expect every member post every day. Everybody is different – like in real world. But if somebody took the time to join our community we should count him/her in.

If you want to do any personal stats of active/nonactive members (based on your own criteria) feel free to dig deep into the Jocks pages to find out.
