Posters aren't worth anything as an individual. It's all just one big happy family. We all collectively make ISH what it is, and not any one single stand-alone standout contributor. We all generate the all interest. We all come here to read the same posters, all equally. No one poster has, or ever will be more of a pull compared to another. We all evenly make everyone smile, LOL, and piss them off without end. Silly ? man.

If I have time later today I'm going to attempt the math on this

All I need to know is

-how much $ we think this site generates a year
-how many active posters there are in one years time
-how many posts the average poster makes in one years time

If I can get estimates on those 3 things I can figure out what 1,000 posts is worth here...or even just 1 post, probably a tiny piece of a penny

That is nearly 7 million posts since 2006 correct?...okay that is 7 years...ROUGHLY 1 million posts per year from 2,096 active posters

that means the average poster here posts 477 times a year

okay...so with the above info that this site brings in $70.08 or ROUGHLY $25k a year it brings me to this

0.025 dollars per post...OR $25 per 1,000 posts

that doesn't answer the OP completely though...1,000 posts is worth roughly $25 to Jeff...but an ACTIVE poster who has 1,000 posts under his belt is worth more due to his potential for future posts...I would guesstimate tripling it...to around $75 in value

so if you are an active poster with 1,000 posts you are valued at around $75 dollars I would say to Jeff
