    So are you guys members of other forums as well as DD?

    Keep up the great work in the forum ajfmrf - it's nice to have another regular around.

    I cant remember where i saw the article I read a while back - think it was by Jakob Neilsen - but it talked about web visitor contribution; 10% of visitors contribute occasionally and 1% contributes regularly. It seems that the vast majority of folks only sign up at DD to get a question answered and they're never to be seen again, which is a shame. It's a more pleasant atmosphere when people hang around, contribute, learn and grow together. I suppose that's just the nature of the web though - people use it to find information and once they have it, its purpose is served... exit();
    I wrote a thread dedicated to dynamic drive statistics a while ago that you may find interesting.

    I agree though that it's nice to chat with the regular users and get to know people a bit more than just talking about code (or whatever the topic may be).
    There are 85,513 posts in dd scripts help currently, and 121,697 posts in all the other forums combined. Draw your own conclusions from that.
    ajfmrf, I don't know about the fonts. I haven't experienced that. Is there any chance you're unintentionally zooming in with the trackpad? I know that at least on a mac if you move your thumbs to the wrong spot while typing once in a while a "gesture" can occur on the trackpad-- for me the most common issue is inadvertently going 'back' in the browser while typing a reply to a post. If not, this is something ddadmin should know. I can't replicate it (on a mac).
    If the control key is stuck down for some reason and you scroll, that can cause zooming. That's the only thing I can think of, check your control key.

    Well, he got banned for a rather amusing post, keyboard might still have a copy lying around.

    Was keebs being naughty?

    The stats were interesting - I think I was only a few weeks from shoe-horning myself back into 'active users' at that point too (damn the sis for being poorly and ruining my flow!)

    I wonder what % of members are women? It puzzles me why IT roles are still so heavily male-dominated, even in this day and age. I'm the only IT lass where I work and I don't think my workplace has ever been visited by an external lady IT technician in the 5 years that I've worked there. Still get the occasional muppet on the other end of the phone who refers to me as the receptionist too... even though they've just been transferred from reception :/

    He was indeed, the one part I do remember of the post was:
    Which was surprisingly witty for the odd bit of spot spamming.

    I think apachetech left around the same time I posted that. Maybe he wasn't into "commitment"?

    Of the regular members? Probably 0%. I think the guardian did a thing on it.

    It is a bit odd.... personally, I'd say that men are viewed as more computery than women just because of steryotypes (I'm definetely not agreeing with this though).
    How many female hard core gamers are there when compared with males... same thing.


    Edit -
    Epic fail cross post...
    But just to be pedantic... the link was ma site (I'm fairly sure)

    I'm fairly sure he remembers a great deal more of the post.... including the username of the poster in question, but we wont go there as to stop this thread getting even more distracted... (take the hint bernie )
