Clearly I post mostly in off topic.....


Admin, are Off Topic threads included in the stats?
If not could you maybe provide similar stats for the off topic threads?

Saying that, I am cutting down. Afaik I'm down on last year's posts, which were super high

You post more in one year than what I have since joining. And we're both regulars.

That said yours is often most informative and thought provoking.

I'm always deeply worried that I'll end up on that Top 10 poster list. As if I need some confirmation that I spend way too much time on thehub..

I think that most of the off topic threads are a bit like thehub's hemorrhoids. Admin is too embarrassed to admit that they exist and there's also not a whole lot he can do about them....

More like the intestines... Full of ****.. But without them the hub wouldn't operate properly

I seem to recall from the stats presented previously (a few years ago) that off topic posts were substantially less than the "on topic" posts.... according to the admin regime

But whatever the count is it would be nice to know, I'm sure they still make a contribution to bikehub revenue?

Seriously cool stats!

I see we are only 0.3% here in NC...

1% in the Free State. Ons het julle gatte geskop!

Ag, c'mon, Myles, you are the know-it-all, the bike tech specialist, the medical aider, and the weight-loss guru. If you cut back we will all be broke, fat, useless, unhealthy Trump supporters... :( # Myles 2017

(Or we'd be discussing 'The Secret' as our best method of dealing with Discovery...)

Ook maar net net ou tjom!

Hub is mellowing, was a time when the 26 vs 29 fight discussion would have been top 5.

Moenie trek nie.

I also think it will be worthwhile to know who was banned and the most common reason for deleting posts.
