**Posting Post **
**Update of post totals and ranks since my summary on Sun 17 Jan 2021, at 20:40:22 pm.**

That is 5 weeks ago, so the increments represent posting activity in the past 5 weeks.

Those who joined recently have moved up the ranks a large number of places — great work!

The next group are consistent participants who have mostly advanced slightly in rank, usually

averaging 1-4 posts per day. Several have exceeded an average of 10 posts per day.

At the "top end", ranks remain stable, while daily posting averages range from steady to quite

incredible: a stratospheric 36 posts per day, and International Space Station posts of almost

260 posts per day, and almost 1300 posts per day! To put that last number in context, only the

top 300 ranked

**Stampboards** members have reached that many posts over the entire length of

their membership.

As a last word of introductory comment to the update, we should be heedful of the wise Latin

dictum about the harvest:

**Pauca sed matura** —

*few, but ripe*. Many of our members with modest

numbers of posts have focussed on making their posts rich with content, and they have contributed

significant information value, reference value, instruction value, and pleasure, to many participants

and chatboard visitors. Their contributions will be a major part of the continuing value of

**Stampboards**.

So, applause for those of our colleagues who concentrate on quality over quantity!
