Whilst I fully agree 10 000 is an impressive number, it would be even more impressive if we had 10 000 contributing members.. more so if we had 10 000 intelligent posters!
There's a saying about volunteers and pressed men.. I feel there's some analogy here with contributing members and logged accounts, but don't feel quite smart enough to put it together!
Why don't we bump off members who've never posted or not posted in 12 months to get a more accurate figure and a smaller user list to browse through!
^ I found that an interesting idea and wanted to see what others thought.
