It isn't the first time we have reached this mark and have about 10,000 inactive members - not to mention the spammers who get deleted quickly and don't count.

Happy 10,000 members BNA!
I think you might have gotten a bit carried away with teh zeroes!
2010 BMC SLC01
You should add it to the 10k club list!
The 10k Club
n=8 (2011 road, 2004 road, 2010 track, 2009 foldup, 1990 hybrid, 1992 indoor trainer, 2007 road now a rental, 1970's step through)
Or there are 90009 spammers.
Bianchi, Ridley, Montague, GT, Garmin and All things Apple
Too many members. I get back from a shift and I've got 3 pages to wade through. Most of them are either trying to buy or sell something, or yet another "which road bike" thread.
As usual, it takes a pessimist to see the down sides.
I agree with Biftek, there are probably only a few hundred or so who are really active here after their questions have been answered.

You are right - almost none of the members are active - most are just sitting down behind a computer screen.
If you do a search by post count and descending, you'll see that at the end of the page the post count is down to ~2500. Even I'm the 20th biggest time waster on here. So not too many regulars.
Oh well.. if the advertisers take the figures on face value... Good luck to 'em.
Lurking = Active, obviously.
All manner of half finished projects and a bit of randonneuring
I used to be tech-savvy. Now I'm just tech-weary.
Nobody ( ) said it specifically. But active by definition means to be engaged or characterised by action. I would assume [dangerous word to use] that there would be some evidence of this action besides just a the read count going up. Obviously some of us have a different definition of action.
Glass half empty?
Are 10,000 members active at any one time ? no
Is there a smaller core of members who visit the site more than once a week? yes
Do members who signup and participate once still get an advantage? yes
Do people just visiting get value from the information in the forum? yes
At the end of last year I deactivated thousands of members who were not active within a 3 month period (because of hack attacks), so have 12,000 inactive members who have participated at some stage though not within the last year.
So within the period of a year or so, 10,000 people have been active in the forum... and at any one time, 80% of the people viewing the forum are not logged-in (i.e. guests) and there are over 1 million page views a month. That said, I couldn't include this all in the title and still feel that it is a pretty good milestone.
I browse the forum way more regularly than I log in.
Being of little experience don't have much to add to the conversation.
Learn heaps from browsing regularly tho.
Many thanks to all those active members who post so much useful info here.
