    Just wondering what generally peoples stats are on number of members compared to the number of topics and messages. I've seen some forums have more messages than members, where as our forum has about 5000 members and about 3000 messages. But then we are quite niche, and our users are more readers than posted.

    So what would you generally say? 10% of members will post?

    We have 4146 members and 234,000 messages in 15,000 threads

    Members with 0 messages is about 50% - but there probably some spambots in there hanging over from vbulletin.

    Well done. So what do we think is the typical ratio. I don't think the examples so far are? Or is it too hard to generalise all forums like that.
