    The total on one must've exceeded 80000 posts, between his current and past/banned accounts, and it wasn't just fun&game fluff... or an account clocking in since the vb2 era.

    Wow! 200,000+ POSTS?!? Must be nice to have such active members.
    Just noticed that I'm close to 20,000 posts on TAZ aimageup.jacquiidesigns.com_di_0FM8.gif
    I'd assume that's not including the myriad of posts I've had deleted LOL

    Makes one wonder if they ever went off line. That many posts doesn't seem healthy.

    I suppose it's easy to get that many posts if you're make a forum part of your daily routine. I've never done it myself though.

    It all depends how long is the person posting on your forum. Take PoetJCPoetJC almost 20,000 posts in almost 11 years thats 6 to 7 posts a day. If i calculate every post made from bulletin board, usenet, yahoo groups, packet radio etc etc i will come close to 100k messages but thats 35 to 38 years so lets say 100k posts 2858 posts a year or 239 posts a month or 8 to 9 posts a day. Must say that i'm not very active anymore but when i was 20 years younger i was typing my ass off to reply to everyone.

    I don't think so, though as mentioned, a forum would usually need to be online for about a decade or so to make this sort of thing plausible.

    10 years and 6 months to be exact. That's how long the forum referred to above has been on-line. According to the forum statistics that equals 54.443 posts per day. However that figure is skewed as the member died 4 years ago so I'd guess the real average would be nearer 100 posts per day.

    I have a member who has over 20k posts in just a few short years. I have over 20k posts on my site but I don't post much anymore and the site has been around over 11 years.

    The funny thing is while most people I've met who had incredibly high counts were odd balls, the one with the highest post count actually had one of the most active and incredible offline lives of anyone I knew!

    I recently received a free guitar amp as an unexpected gift so I started a "race to 50k" contest today. First member to reach 50k (no junk posts allowed) gets it free of charge. Should be fun :D
