What's the percentage of the registered members who post daily, weekly, or monthly?

That is a good question. I'll punt that to our more statistically inclined moderator or admin.

Gotta say something to make this hibiscus pink again.

Niteynite from the North Shore...here's wishing you all cool breezes to sleep in, and lotsa stars shining overhead. For y'all on the mainland, well, stay warm and have a good night!

I don't know if vbulletin has that kind of user report function. If it does it is not super obvious to me.

There is however an average number of post that is shown in the user's profile page.

it's great when ideas can be passed along with objectivity. It's when the flaming begins is when it's no fun. And a radio talk show can be interesting if callers hang up and listen if the question isn't debatable but intriguing.

As someone who produces a weekly radio talk show, I can tell you that a few of our regular listener/callers do this ... but only because they know we have a very limited number of phone lines.

Unfortunately, we don't know how many listeners we have (long story, but we aren't on "regular" radio, so we can't do Arbitron), but I can tell you that most of the callers we get are regulars - but we are a targeted service as well.

I've produced practically all of KGU's and KHVH's weekend talk shows over 20-years. You get quite a few "regulars". But hit a hot topic and new callers will chime in.

Those moderators are the ones who have strong opinions that their listeners want to hear. It doesn't work with the on the fence moderators.

Ha ha ha, laughing at myself big-time.... I clicked onto this thread because my hibiscuses really are turning grey! They have some type of powdery crud on them, like a mold of some type..... aw, never mind!

I've been busy with the birth of my grandson, so I missed seeing when this thread first posted. I agree that the headline news topics may seem to be a bit slow right now, but the news purveyors are keeping us entertained with the saga of Jon and Kate. Now, who are they, and why should I care? ;-)

I try to check in here daily, but it's been hard to respond due to the fact this keyboard is missing 5 letters, most importantly, A, B, and C. Trying to put together the simplest paragraph becomes a trial, especially since I'm dyslexic. I am currently suffering with an on-screen keyboard... this is why I don't text (besides that I'm cheap.) So what you see here is 15-20 minutes work.

When my computer repair guy gets out of rehab, it'll be all good again.

on one hand there is a thread lamenting the loss of the nice HTers; this thread observes there hadn't been much action for a certain period of time.

Well, you're safe. I chew Cinnamon Trident only. (And I wasn't advocating the use of drugs. Just poking a bit of fun at the old 80's fried egg PSA)

ok - I see a Yellow Plumeria on the left of my screen, by/under the HT.com wording. I see no hibiscus, anywhere on my page, of any color. What am I missing cause this whole thread makes NO sense to me
