Hi,

816 unique posters to the forum from 2012-06-28 to 2012-07-28.

The 90-9-1 principle suggests that there are 99 lurkers to every individual poster. Of course, there will be much variability in the ratio between communities, but there are always far more lurkers than posters.

Wow 99 to 1.
I would never have believed that.
Once I found BB I believe that I joined up right away.
I was so relieved to find out what happened to me and to connect with others.
i posted a question on the same day and somebody answered me.

It was a miracle to me.
Thank you again Colin.
Carol
