    Server may need to be tweaked soon with new members comming. I noticed sometimes posting, it doesn't show and then I have to re-enter the thread to see that the post is there. Maybe a performance issue is gradually developing.

    Yes, as at today, Saturday 11-Aug-2007, we only need 20 new members to reach our 25,000 mark.

    But membership is not everything. It is how Badminton Central has promoted our beloved Badminton that counts.

    Badminton Central ought to be CONGRATULATED !!!

    If you count the people who have been banned, we will have over 25000 members. But a lot of these accounts are inactive, so we have less members. However, regardless of the amount of members we have, BC is still a great community.

    Well then, what's the significance of 'breaking the 25,000' barrier?

    Sounds suspiciously close to the 'post count' thing, if I might say so.

    Probably lots of lurkers and inactive members. Most of them join up for the tourney scores.

    Lurkers don't register and you don't need an account to check the tourney scores.

    Well, some do for convenience and more access to the forum. Otherwise how do you explain that number?

    When lurkers register, they become members. As for the convenience bit, that I'll give to you.

    As for the numbers, here's a few theories:

    1. Members who came to ask specific question on badminton, then off they went and never to come back.

    2. Formerly regular members whom had a change in life and found something else to occupy their time.

    3. Formerly regular members whom are either dissatisfied with how the place had developed, left or just lurked.

    4. Registered to test the water, didn't like the place after a while and left/lurked.

    5. Registered as a member to express admiration to a certain player. Player is no longer popular/great. Interest dwindled.

    6. Banned accounts for various offences - a certain 'HH' comes to mind.

    7. Duplicate accounts, normally used by those who wanted to put in contentious posts but are afraid to reveal their real persona.


    What are the percentage breakdown of the above, that I cannot say but I believe (2), (3), (4) and (5) make up a bulk of the number. Without access to query the database I can't comment further.

    yes but after certain inactive period, their username will be deleted after periodic system checks


    2. Formerly regular members whom had a change in life and found something else to occupy their time.

    see answer #1

    3. Formerly regular members whom are either dissatisfied with how the place had developed, left or just lurked.

    if they lurk, they are reading bf. Being a member don't required to make posts.

    4. Registered to test the water, didn't like the place after a while and left/lurked.
    see answer #1 and #3

    5. Registered as a member to express admiration to a certain player. Player is no longer popular/great. Interest dwindled.

    see answer #1

    6. Banned accounts for various offences - a certain 'HH' comes to mind.

    banned accounts are not in the memberlist. Go try to find cooldoo6 if u can

    7. Duplicate accounts, normally used by those who wanted to put in contentious posts but are afraid to reveal their real persona.

    alias accounts usually get caught and dealt with. If not, they would be eventually inactive. See answer #1

    The percentage breakdown of your statement accuracys should be in question. Your realism is a bit foggy

    What's the official word on this?

    2. Formerly regular members whom had a change in life and found something else to occupy their time.

    Logging in will reset the counter.

    3. Formerly regular members whom are either dissatisfied with how the place had developed, left or just lurked.

    if they lurk, they are reading bf. Being a member don't required to make posts.

    Indeed. Which... doesn't really disprove my theory, does it?

    banned accounts are not in the memberlist. Go try to find cooldoo6 if u can.

    Does the member count include all members in the list or just active accounts? I think a query on the DB vs software count would probably yield a more accurate picture.

    7. Duplicate accounts, normally used by those who wanted to put in contentious posts but are afraid to reveal their real persona.

    alias accounts usually get caught and dealt with. If not, they would be eventually inactive. See answer #1

    I'll give you this, but you're just speculating just as I am. I'm sure our mods do this regularly, seeing that they're on here 24/7.

    I did no percentage breakdowns, kimosabe, hence I pretend no accuracy.

    if any members can login, we can't call them inactive can we?
