8 days, 15 hours and 24 minutes
Similar time to me, strangely enough. I'll let everyone draw their own conclusions :meh:

Comparing Roadgeekteen's time and your time gives a ratio of 1.172. Not noteworthy. That would be equivalent to me saying someone with 224 days or 306 days (actual: 261d 9h 17m) is similar to my time online.

On a much larger scale, yes. But I'm not analyzing how close our times online are - I'm looking at post counts, given that our time online is at least somewhat comparable :eyebrow: (Enough said.)

What about quality of posts vs time logged in?

Typically either both high or both low. Just throwing that out there  ;-)
Having just typed and posted a quality epistle over in the Northeast board, I feel qualified to say that much  :D

3 days, 20 hours, and 26 minutes.

Just returned from a completely unintentional (and slightly embarrassing) absence of uncertain but considerable length.  Sorry, guys!

4 hours and 39 minutes.  :-(

I've been following this site for almost 15 years, and even contributed some info to some of the highway guides back around 2005, but somehow never got into the forums until about a year ago, and I've pretty much just been a lurker.  I was much more into message forums back then, and may have registered under a different name/email, but darned if I can figure out what it would have been.

In summary, the only real conclusion that I can draw is that tenured members of the forum maybe tend to spend more time researching the boards before composing a post. However, this is beset by the fact that the total login time variable is somewhat of an unreliable measurement. It's also a small sample size (N = 22), maybe if I had a larger dataset the results would be more concrete. I could always scrape the members list, but I suspect the admins wouldn't be too pleased about that.

I wonder if the inclusion of moderators/admins may be skewing the data. There are times when I'm not particularly interested in a topic, but I spend time checking on the thread and not posting because it looks like it may need moderation at some point.

No, I'm skewing the data. I have more than twice the time of anyone else included in those 22.

One thing I've noticed, is at the bottom of the home page, in the section for "users active in the past 15 minutes", you are always the first user listed in that list (when you're online, that is).

I don't know how you do it. Even when I'm highly active and do a bunch of force refreshes all at once, I still can't bump you from the first spot on that list.

Plus a lot of my time is just double checking stuff, and fixing the forum while it's maintenance mode.  Sometimes I can rack up 3-4 hours doing that if the problem is that big.

I've only been a member of this forum for about two weeks and I have 11 hours logged in. I know there are people here who have thousands of posts and have been here for years, so I'm wondering how much time they have been logged in to this forum.

Currently at 87 days 1 hour 29 minutes.  But "logged in" doesn't necessarily mean I'm doing anything.

I thought time logged in was part of "stats", and therefore on of the ever-growing list of banned topics.

9 days, 2 hours, 11 minutes. That sounds about right for me, based on how long I've been a member here.

Depends.  If it's just a simple question and the answers are accepted, it won't be banned.

If someone becomes obsessive over the stats, then it becomes an issue.
