thanks for the backup

Lay down your lightsabers, spartan shields and Glamdring replicas: this isn’t actually a battle. I have mutal respect for all the great boards listed. See this instead as just a fun collection of stats (yes, I did just use “fun” and “stats” in the same sentence!), especally as many of you post on one or more. Most of the stats are pretty self-explanatory; “Average” is total posts divided by total members. “?” means “I don’t really know”. If you are the admin/mod or just someone who happens to know, drop me a comment and I’ll add it. Think another board belongs there? Do likewise.

Update: more boards added

  • leaves the “total posts” competition in the dust, with Statue Forum coming somewhat close
  • The Shadow and Flame has the highest average (yay!)
  • (bonus stat) The overall top 3 most active posters are as follows: d rod (35,150), Bullseye (29,220), The Josh (24,838)
  • 4 out of 6 admins based their nick on their real names. d rod is the only admin who is the most frequent poster on his board (although if that is an enhanced count is unclear)
  • Boards with official support: (duh), WetaHolics (Weta-operated), Gentle Giant Collectors (Gentle Giant), Statue Forum (at least in some capacity with Bowen and others), The Shadow and Flame (none), Sideshow Freaks (at least in some capacity with Sideshow), LOTR Guide (none), Rebel Scum (unclear), Yoda’s News (unclear)
  • Until the rest of the unknowns can be fleshed out, LOTR Guide wins the geezer award, with its beginnings in 2002

And here are all of the boards linked in alphabetical order. On the off-chance you’ve never heard of any of them before, you have a lot of reading to do:

Gentle Giant Collectors
Lord of the Rings Guide
The Shadow and Flame
Statue Forum
Yoda’s News

    I can’t access the stats, being as I’m not a member, if you want to email them to me I’ll add them to the chart.
