    As you may (or may not) know, one of the nifty new features @Ome has added to the site is "Post Areas", which shows how many posts we've made in each forum.

    There were a couple of little surprises when I took a look at mine, and some results that were no surprise at all. I'm curious to know if other members' results were as they thought they'd be. So here's a space to share a bit about them.



    If you want to see how your posts are spread site-wide, just go to your Profile Page and then click on the new "Post Areas" tab.

    Clever, eh?



    Now, tell all:

    • In which forum have you made the most posts?
    • Are a huge percentage of your posts in one forum?
    • And which have the lowest figures?
    • How about threads started - does it tally up with the forum where you made the most posts?
    • Is there a forum you've never posted in?
    • Any surprises in the results, or were they exactly as you may have expected?


    Let the (lighthearted) forum battle commence…

    I had a suspicion that was confirmed when I looked at the stats: I've posted more in the US Soaps forum than I have in the Knots Landing forum. Of course that might be because @Ray&Donna and I love cracking wise about those mental cases over at General Hospital.

    I was most surprised by the one single posting I made to the Star Trek forum, since I did not recall ever having gone to that forum. I have five forums in the single-digit post counts, and many with no posts at all.

    In all my years here [/old man tone] I've not been the type who creates threads. I've mostly responded to others'. The stats bear this out: out of 980 posts, I've created only 13 threads!

    And if we click on the links it takes us to your posts, I was most curious about the Bachelorette post and the one in the Music Stats forum.

    Yea, I didn't realise they would post as links. I just copied and pasted but it took the whole of my profile page so I had to delete most of it and just keep the bottom bit.

    :D It's so easy to get carried away with those back and forth cracks.

    My own suspicion was confirmed: most of my posts have been in the Music forum. Almost a third of my entire post count, in fact.

    I'm ashamed to say that I've only made twenty something posts in the KL forum. It was a shock to find I've made five times more posts in the Dallas forum than I have about Knots. Considering all my yakking in the FKL forum when I was first on SoapChat, I'm certain my stats would look very different if they included pre-crash posts.


    Did you remember the post once you saw it?

    My single post in the Falcon Crest forum is recent, so I remembered that.

    Two things that did surprise me were seeing that I'd made a post in US Soaps and five posts in the Rant Room. They came back to me when I saw them. Three of my Rant Room posts were about that barcode sticker on the top of imported CDs, so maybe some of these should come with a trigger warning. ;)




    I love that your top post counts are evenly split between the two incarnations of Dynasty.



    There's great amusement to be found seeing posts out of context. I was curious about @Alexis's two posts in Comics Central and found these listed when I clicked on it:



    :giggle:


    I don't even need to read the thread in question. These quotes have made me laugh just from seeing them floating about.

    We could easily make up a game from random quotes like this. Didn't we used to have a thread where we had to guess which member had said that week's quote?!

    I wasn't surprised to see my most posts belonging to the music forum, but I was surprised by how many there are compared to the second forum on the list.



    Music 1439
    UK Soaps Forum 738



    I'm really liking how you can click on any link and it takes you down memory lane in an instant. How much fun would we have had, had we this option before the crash?

    We did :D and I've been saving a few quotes over the past couple of months to start this game up again later in the year.

    The bookmark feature is great for this, so it's making life easier for me.

    • In which forum have you made the most posts? = Music

    • Are a huge percentage of your posts in one forum? Yes, music

    • And which have the lowest figures? Mostly the sub-forums

    • How about threads started - does it tally up with the forum where you made the most posts? Not really. The music forum has 34 threads with 1439 posts and the TV Central forum has 32 threads with 233 posts

    • Is there a forum you've never posted in? This is hard because I'm trying to remember all the forums while looking at my list. I think it's down to one forum only and that is the Fan Fiction forum

    • Any surprises in the results, or were they exactly as you may have expected? Yes, I didn't realise I had posted in the Twin Peak, The Colbys and the Sundry soaps forums, and I was expecting the Lounge forum to be higher on my list.

    The Dallas forum is the main reason I found this place in 2000 and still the main place i post despite Dallas and cast being very quiet these days and it no longer brings the traffic it used to (sadly)
    the UK soap forum is my next port of call mainly due to Corrie but i can see myself posting less there the more far fetched it has become and incredulous!
    I dip in and out of the lounge and TV central on an ad hoc basis

    I would post in the KL forum before the crash but havent really since then

    I avoid games forum, reality TV, Politics and fan fiction forums as there arent my cup of tea

    I felt sure Music was going to top the list in terms of post numbers, but had no idea it would have over twice as many posts as the second one.

    As you can see, the forum in which I've started most threads isn't the one in which I've made the most posts. But then we're quite a chatty lot in Music, aren't we?

    Fora where I've made no footprints at all include Fan Fiction and Sports, along with those for more recent shows such as The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones (not surprising considering I haven't watched them).

    I was a little surprised how much I've posted about Dallas compared with Knots. That has to do with traffic in each forum, I think. The solitary thread I started in the Knots forum had no responses.

    If we added in areas that have been viewed I dare say there'd be yet another shift, since there are many threads that I thoroughly enjoy reading without posting in.

    I can't believe I've posted so much in the lounge forum.
    (Oops, another post added to the total).

    I've posted a few suggestions in the Soap Chat Music Stats, but 245? I seriously doubt it.

    I've just looked at mine, and think I've worked out why...

    Once the "20 Songs With..." nominations/votes/results are merged, the whole thread goes into stats. So all your posts in nominations are now part of Music Stats, even though you made them in a different forum. @Ome can verify if this is the case.

    If this is the case, when you add up your Music and Music Stats posts it means you've made around 1000 posts in Music altogether. Very impressive, Willie!!

    Okay so just checked out this feature.

    In which forum have you made the most posts?


    Dallas - The Original Series. I have 799 posts in there and have started 11 threads.

    Are a huge percentage of your posts in one forum?

    Yes, I post most in the Dallas forums

    799 posts in Dallas The Original Series
    638 posts in Dallas Writers Room
    84 posts in Dallas TNT

    Right now my post total is at: 2740 posts.
    So I guess this means that about 55 % of all my posts on here are about Dallas!


    And which have the lowest figures?

    Rant Room 3 posts
    Australian & New Zealand Soaps 2 posts
    The Colbys 2 posts
    Documetnaries 1 post
    Game of Thrones on HBO I post

    How about threads started - does it tally up with the forum where you made the most posts?

    Yes it does.

    Is there a forum you've never posted in?

    Falcon Crest Writers Room
    Shondaland
    Comics Central
    The Walking Dead
    US Soaps Forum
    Star Trek
    Twin Peaks
    Reality TV forum
    Sports
    Big Brother Task Room
    The Bachlorette
    Play Games
    The Spam Forum
    UK politics

    Any surprises in the results, or were they exactly as you may have expected?

    I didn't realize that I used "The Lounge" as much as I did as I've always considered it a forum I don't post in! ;)


    If anyone's interested in the full statistic. This is how my posts break down at the moment:
