Re: Winged insects with internal clocks are -

... how do people do it who are supposed to work full-time I say

when I worked full-time, + kids, + house, + garden and more- I wouldn't have had time to even glance at a Forum, never mind 'contribute'

When you are retired, even if very busy, and with a laptop on the kitchen table, it's very easy (peasy)

even from your join date you average 9.18 posts per day. so you're saying that your actual average since retirement is a multiple of that?

Multitasking Odile, ever heard of it?

Some of us are masters at it.

You can probably double that, if you include her OT posts.

It depends a lot on what your work-space looks like. My computer would have ended up in a watery grave whereas an office desk or frequent train journeys may offer ample opportunities for posting on here.

Congratulations!

I took the liberty of looking at your first post, and I think you got your wish and managed to contribute to the forum pretty well!
Hope you are still enjoying the Berliners!

Re: Winged insects with internal clocks are -

Congratulations!!!

She may be nominally at 2,500 but for the sake of fairness let's add a coefficient (.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) to each of her posts.

After a quick random look at some of her posts, I can estimate her average coefficient at something like 3.5 - 3.8.

So coefficient-wise her total post count is around 9,500

What I mean is a lot of her posts have the quality of a well-structured essay: with introduction - analysis/explanation/different cases - conclusion. Such posts have a coefficient weight of 5. Meloncollie is another poster with very high coefficient that comes to my mind. On the other hand, posts with less than 10 words shouldn't get a coefficient higher than .5

Would be interesting if instead of post count, we had word count

Not sure if what I'm saying makes sense though

Not really, but your post has the quality of a well-structured essay, etc, etc.
It is thus awarded a coefficient of 5.

Congratulations to you too.

How very kind of you to estimate my posts so highly.
And my respect for counting the words in all my posts to get all the posts with less than 10 words.
