@dalehileman,
My guess is that it's a recovery and resettling after T-Day and travel. some are having relatives and friends over. Winter activities spurs on a new activity. This is a semi-after-the-holiday lull.

Every DECENT person, and his brother, is at church. Obviously, that excludes you, Dale.

@dalehileman,
Yes, I did. Thanks for the heads-up, though.

BTW, Dale..on a different matter...I post this for general edification about the actual size of regular active members of the forum. Often times I've seen you refer to the population of A2K as 250,ooo members. That is a number that is quite misleading. That number is the actual number of total accounts..many of whom are/were one-timers, spammers and/or non-repeating members.

Are you aware that the actual number of regular daily or weekly participants is about 150 or 200 '├žommunity' members? On a reg basis it may be as low as 100 regular community members in any given day. I arrive at that number by counting known nicks or repeat nicks over the last decade or so and the recent trends of regular (back-and-forth) activity or usage.

For the sake of grossly under-estimation and over-simplification, I eliminate from the count...the newbies who post ESL, advice to lovesick and those that hit and run with one post and never return. This might surprise you. I could be off a bit...but at least it gives you a better idea of the actual community.

The amount of readers and/or read-only lurkers... might be triple to ten-fold of that amount.

@dalehileman,
heheh. There's a large silent majority..those of them are lurkers, who often read but never say a thing 'til just the right circumstances occur on never at all particpate.

Wow Rag I'm impressed anyone would so so. Incidentally, forgive my vast ignorance, but what's a "nick"

What do you suppose the count might be if you didn't

Well that's 200k min, making my guesstimates at potential as 250k to 300k almost believable

What I meant is the regular are participants are about 100-150 members. Then about 3-10 times that amount are really readers in various times..in a snapshot of time - not Bots and/or commercial spammers.
