  • Admin = Disproportionate Amount of Posts

    Here's the deal...I have 105 members and 2100 posts after about 2 months. However, I (admin) account for 1/3 of all posts! I try to answer everyone to boost enthusiasm. Is it unusual for the admin to have a large percent of the posts in the first few months? Thanks.

          I think your fine for now, dont try to answer ALL questions. If you know a member who could better answer the question, PM them and ask them to answer it. Dont try to act like a know it all or guru. Its a community, foster other members to answer questions, not just ask.

          For the first few months, for few thousand posts, i wouldnt worry about your post count. Nice forum you have there, I'm thinking about flight school next year. I'll make sure i bookmark it.

            Yeah, when your board has ~100k posts and you have ~50k of them, then you can start worrying.

                        Ahh! Weezer is great! Oh well, my forums are pretty dead anyway. Hopefully they'll pick up in a little bit. My site has had ~2k hits in like 3 days, which isn't bad for just starting up.

                        Ahaha, nifty, my 200th post.

                          Well if you are than concerned you can make another user name and answer half of the posts using that And then tell yourself you are wrong .

                            So far on my boards, I have 95 members, 512 posts. My sister originally started the site, she had 179 posts. Since she is gone for two years, I have taken over and I have 42 posts. Most of my members know me from another board (ezboard) and know I am an admin. I did change my name in the admin cp so that my name isn't bold and my message below my name no longer says admin.

                            You can do what I have done, but my most frequent visitors enjoy talking with me and anyone else. I think you should make the few changes that I have done, then keep on posting and just have fun!

                              It always starts like that. Eventually you will see the % fall below 10%, then 5% and continue on down ...
