    Interested in what everyone's thread posts ratio is?

    At /admin.php - Messages divided by Discussions = Ratio. My site ratio is 16.3.

    Keen to understand if this is much lower than average etc.

    While I don't have access to the ACP on TAZ, if I divide messages by discussions I get 7.55 almost 7.56

    I read a while ago that some sort of unwritten target was a ratio of 1:10.

    This site is just over that, my own site is a little over that ... at 1:71 :D

    0.12 or 8.02 depending on whether you divide by discussions or messages. As a ratio, I think it would be 0:12 or 8:02.

    78.4 here (if I divided right) 1.8M+ posts and 23K+ threads.

    We have lots of posts on threads and lively discussions, especially weekly discussions related to new content.
