    Can you elaborate, why are they interesting? I see 32 members (which seems surprisingly low), 401 guests and 50 robots (which seem reasonable).

    Crazy how far some have fallen.... There is a new forum apparently, for disgruntled members, just sayin.

    When Jim eventually leaves here can we get V. Kurt Bellman back?

    I blame the robots.

    If I am the Jim , go ask a current moderator. As I left that position on my own reasons which did not involve any member months ago. Any action would have to go through the administrators . You can easily visit the other forum and look at their statistic sheet also and they are within the same ranges ( except for robots which may not have found them yet). This forum has always had rules. Some members found it fun how close to tease the tiger, and then complain about mal-treatment.
    He was and probably is still on several other forums , so you can always visit there to renew old times. Jim

    My request was mostly of rhetoric. I know it won't happen. Just thinking out loud, nothing more.

    I respect our mods and rules. Even more so, now after recent events.

    I grew up as a coin and stamp collector during a time without TV or Internet. The newspapers rarely carried any news of coins or stamps. Everything you knew or learned was passed through the grapevine. We either couldn't afford coin magazine or didn't know about them. I passed many interesting coins because I had no idea of errors and variations. We had everything from Poor to BU. There weren't any MS grades to haggle over.

    I use CT as a tool to learn and assist. We should all do that and keep personal feelings out of the conversations.

    When looking at the numbers there's a couple things folks don't seem to take into consideration - the time of day, and the number of guests. At various times of the day you'll see the numbers change and go up, at other times they will go down. This kind of coincides a bit with the the average person's free time, and at what time of day that free time happens to occur. It also changes depending on what time of year it is - summer is always slower (lower numbers) than winter.

    As for the guests, they're kind of like members in a way because they come back day after day, and many of them do this for many years. Their interest is in reading, learning, keeping up with things in the numismatic world - they just don't care about making their own posts. Some, after years of being a guest, do register and become members. And when they do they usually relate the same thing I'm saying here.

    We also have to keep in mind that all registered members have the ability to visit CT and do anything and everything they normally do - but do it all while staying invisible to everybody else. And they can do that simply by putting a check mark in a little box - and turning it on or off any time they want.

    I guess my point is there are a whole lot more people who visit CT every single day, at any given time, than it seems, based on the numbers.

    Members can visit without logging in and show up as "guest" too, right? I do it all the time on other forums where I'm a member but don't log in unless I have something useful to say.

    VKurt can easily be found on the wild west forum. I was active there for a short time but got sick of all the useless blather.

    I browse sometimes as guest too, but I'm really spoiled by letting the system track which topics have new posts on them for me. I don't get that unless I log in, and I don't show up often enough to assume all of the new activity for me just resides on the first page.

    I was a regular “guest” here for some years prior to joining. I learned a LOT that way. Why are the bots here? Did Asimov send them?

    You ever use a search engine for info on coins ? Well, the results you get are there because bots have already searched every web site there is and cataloged everything they find there. That's where the results come from - bots.

    But that's only one of the things they do. They also search out personal info on every web site there is, names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, etc.

    Bots do good things and bad things, depending on your point of view of course. But without bots a lot of the internet wouldn't even work.

    Put @coinjockey kurt also furry frog back on line. Thinking that might help the percentages
