ticalc.org Reaches 50,000 User Accounts
Posted by Michael on 29 May 2004, 20:19 GMT

We have reached yet another site milestone: Fifty thousand user accounts. Steve Taylor is the lucky owner of account #50000. Figuring approximately 100,000 posted comments, we're averaging two comments per user.

We wish to thank you, the visitors, for our success. Hopefully we will reach 100,000 users in the future.

I was going to try to get the 50k user account, but I was warned off doing so. It is probably for the best that it went to a new member.

We can only assume that ticalc.org's system that deletes dormant accounts every one hundred days would also delete that statistic... but we'll never know, unless and admin says other-wise?

To the best of my knowledge, we do not delete dormant accounts. The only accounts that have been deleted are users that have violated our policies.

Good job on this great site, but how many of those accounts are for the same people, or dormant? 50,000 is a huge number of accounts, for a graphing calculator program website (basically). I believe the only other person in my grade at my (inner city) school who has a graph link is a friend who I gave my USB link to (I am very happy with serial). I don't know if anyone in any other grade has one, but games do get around.

Yeah, I bet 75% of the accounts aren't even used, but we still have a pretty good number of people who come here at least once per month.

I wonder how this Steve guy feels to get the 50,000th account :-D You know, it would be funny if the 50,000th account was something like asdflkjasf. That wouldn't make too good of a news item.

That figure is totally wrong. Probably about reversed, with max 25% never being used.

That said, there are certainly a *lot* of dormant accounts. But most have been used a couple of times before falling dormant.

Games aren't the only things TI's can do. They can do your math homework or help you study for your English test. But still, games are cool :D
And to the new member of this site: Have fun downloading programs (download mine, too! My Splash-It programs are the bomb)

Also there are nearly 7 billion people on Earth and many sites have more than 50k members (and some in shorter amounts of time). I am not criticizing, just stating facts. The percentage of people on this site vs. the population of the world is 7.143*10^-6% (You could do the math for verification, but I assure you it is all good).

All I can say, is that it was a good idea for TI to start packaging Graph Links with their calculators.

Wow, 50,000 users and 100,000-ish comments. I bet more than >80% of the comments come from <10% of the users. I have my doubts that even 10% of ticalc.org users are still active.

That's very true. You look at the posts on all of these news items and it's the same 20 people or so every time. Every once and a while someone else will chip in, but 20 people definitely isn't 50,000 (go figure).

I am willing to bet that no_one has about 10%. Though, I am probably not doing to shabby in the post department. I used to post like it was going out of style. Remember that one survey where I had like half the posts, and Jeremiah had the other half....

Haha, I wouldn't be surprised if I had 10% of the posts, either. :) Though I have been kinda busy lately (end of school stuff).

You know, I just realized something. Our 50,000th account member hasn't made any posts yet! Or, have I just not scrolled down far enough?

I think he just happened to make an account when he came to download a few games, and he never came back. He probably has no idea that he is user 50000.

He's probably one of them people that just wanted to rate a file or download a few files and then leave and he knew he had to have an account, so he made one. He probably won't upload any files, write any reviews, or post any comments.

In case you are a f00, both 14341 and 3 are prime numbers. Most people visiting here are probably not 'f00's though.

Just for the record, both 14341 and 3 are palindromes; 3 might be a degenerate one, but it's a palindrome nevertheless.
Hmm, too bad my user ID, 31163, isn't pretty in any way, it's factors are 11 and 2833. Ah well, my ICQ number is kinda cool; 255775529 (especially if it wasn't for that stupid 9).

ooh, that would be a cool UIN. Mine is 303143795 i think, and i like it because it contains "314". It factors to 5*23*2636033, but i dont think there is anything special about it... My ticalc account (45591) factors to 3*7*13*167, which has relatively small prime factors compared to yours.
