I thought I would throw out a hearty welcome to the new (and by "new" I mean "low post count") names in some of the active threads, like ..er.. and lifeinhd and jqubed.

Because I'm friendly like that.

Ok, I have a new game, the person who posts in this thread with the lowest score wins.*

Scoring goes as such:

Score = posts / months since registration

*Months must be equal or greater than 6 so a real newb cannot come in with one post and win the game with a 1.00, I hope the winner to have a score in the 0.3 range.


scores as such

Me (ash) = (2270/51)=44.51

MMKK = 21.05

Ugh = 19.73

FS = 18.79

BBK = 17.64

5498 / 125 = 44.34

But that doesn't include the pre-UBB days. Also, I just realized I've been on this forum for over ten years... over a quarter of my life, in fact. [Eek!]

2305/86 = 26.8

Over 7 years on this board. No wonder it feels like a little internet home. I don't call or visit here as often as should here either.

2798 / 238 => 11.75

Why do you think this is this a good game? It could easily be won by someone who posts once a year for 10 years.

The more interesting questions is where did the shooting stars go? E.g. what ever happened to Business Attire?

There are a few names I haven't seen in a while. I certainly hope that they occasionally peek in. People like csk, Winter Solstice, Just Jess, Yayawoman, more from Jessycat, Rednivek, even a rant from -ct- would be refreshing.

The list could go on and on.

Because they have to use thier 1 post per year up in here, and we can say hi again, the point is to see who is lurking in the shadows.

perhaps later I'll go through and cube the months, or take the months to the power of e or pi to see how much that would reaarange teh scores.
