    Well, shoot...you're absolutely right...and I knew that at one time, but when I clicked on MartinMusicMan's profile a few minutes ago I didn't realize that I wasn't on the "about me" page. When you click on some profiles you automatically end up on the "about me" page. I assumed that's where I was without paying close enough attention, and wondered why I couldn't see his post frequency. Silly mistake on my part.

    Yes, we see the post counts printed all the time, but it's hard to compare them or see where you lie in the ranking of total number of posts. I thought it would be interesting to compare them graphically.

    I agree. This display is clearly only for ranking people according to number of posts.

    Yes, and I'm glad that people read my wording carefully enough to spot the word "frequency." I should have worded the opening statement differently, perhaps. At least the display is clear. Note, however, that "Number of Posts" is equivalent to "Posts Per 4280 Days" (the earliest Join Date was 4280 days ago), which is an estimate of frequency. So you can actually consider "Number of Posts" a frequency estimate (albeit not a very stable one, as it only counts occurrences across one (long) unit of time.

    It would be interesting to examine "frequency of posts per day," of all members in ranked order. There are probably many members who have higher post frequencies than the 20 members with the most posts (just as Pete alluded to earlier). Maybe I'll get around to plotting the ranked posting frequencies of all SOTW members some day, but not right now. In the mean time, I invite others to give it a try.

    So rank order of posts per day (keep in mind that there may be others with higher frequencies of posts per day; these are the high total posters from the OP)

    hakukani 12.05
    bandmommy 8.77
    Shaneygrog 7.90
    milandro 7.55
    gary 7.29
    Pete Thomas 5.34
    grumps 5.36
    Jazz Is All 5.04
    bruce bailey 4.53
    [MartinMusicMan 4.37]
    martysax 4.22
    Dr. G 4.05
    Carl H. 3.65
    Gordon (NZ) 3.51
    JL 3.36
    jazzbluescat 3.23
    SAXISMYAXE 3.04
    kcp 3.02
    jrvinson45 3.01
    belliott 2.58
    Dave Dolson 2.45

    From this I conclude that I should spend more time playing the sax than posting about it.

    Just so we're on the same page, saxmusicguy...I was in no way trying to quibble over semantics or trying to read the purpose of your post as anything other than it was. I did get it for the way it was intended. I was merely adding other ways of looking at "rankings" in general. It's been an interesting thread, as started by you.

    No worries. And I would certainly classify you, CooolJazzz, among the helpful members here. There are indeed many ways to look at "rankings." In any case, SOTW is a community (of sorts) rather than a competition. The intent of this thread was just to examine some interesting data.

    I thank you for that, but the truth is, 2 in 10 of my posts may be helpful to someone. Add 5 or 6 in which I'm usually just trying to inject humor...and that leaves 2 or 3 more in which I can get cantankerous or just downright ornery. I'm working on the latter part, but the older I get and the more physical pain I'm in, the more ornery I seem to become. That's good though, because it gives the younger folk someone to point at and say..."Don't be like him". And behind the truth in that...hopefully there's some humor as well.

    That makes "2". I rest my case...

    But seriously, thanks again. I have my moments occasionally. Not nearly so often as Pete Thomas and others though.

    It's a very impressive graph. But is there any way to differentiate between Member Lounge posts and Non-Lounge posts? It would be nice to give the Champion Lounge Lizards some sort of special recognition.

    As far as I know, this information isn't publicly available, but perhaps the forum founder or administrators can access it.

    Here are the data according to Posts Per Day (I also appended this to the original post):

    That data must have taken a while to gather. All it will take is a "newbie" making 400 posts in their first month to knock hakukani from his throne...

    The newer you are to SOTW, the easier it would be to rise to the top of this list if you had a mind to...(or had nothing better to do).

    Indeed, SOTW can be a real time sink.
