Re: Forum Board Statistics

I'm curious what sort of statistics would seem to provide greater (or any) value? The ones presented here seem typical, quite representative of what I would expect, and of what I've seen in other forums that I visit. Here are a few examples of more active forums that I visit: Threads: 515,448, Posts...
