I've been noticing lately that most of the posting on this forum seems to be done by a mere handful of the same guys. There seem to be around a dozen participants who post regularly, and other are silent for the most part. However, the reading numbers show that there are a lot of guys looking - far more than are posting.

I suspect that this is a question for the moderators - what's the approximate percentage of regular posters (say once a month or more) to the total number of individuals who are registered members of this forum? Put another way, of the individuals registered here, what proportion are active, as opposed to passive, members?

Another forum in which I participate actually requires registered members to post periodically or lose their registration status. This is to deflect the attention of voyeurs and wankerss as opposed to serious participants. There's no such rule here on this forum, and I'm wondering how this is playing out .....

OK, this is the stuff that seems asked and not too hard to get:
Total membership = 1148

Member post quantity:
Total posts = 8829 ( 15.5 years)
100+ = 12
100-50 = 24
50-25 = 48
25-10 = 53
10-2 = 251
1 post = 120

Members on site ( active, logged in )
past 24 hours = 26
past week = 74

This site started December 31 2000.
September of 2012 Dave gave me admin level powers to clean the site out. I started deep vetting the new applicants.
By January 7 2013, with easy enrollment, we had over 10000 members, a ton of spammers, coded message terrorists, etc.
I purged the members that had never posted and the new member count became 149 and with the New Member group restrictions all the problems stopped.
Since then only one applicant got past the vetting and caught by the new member post approval routine.
While in the New Member group privileges are limited and no email nor messaging is active. This prevents use of the board as a blind mail server by those that have no other interest here.

As far as the voyeur thing goes, you don't even have to log in to poke around without search available.

I suspect the ball stretching community is a somewhat small one, compared to other "kinks"...Like vac pumping.

I feel it is just a matter of time that "Ball Stretching" gets mentioned by a celebrity,an off-handed mention in a movie,or more likely a major mention in social media that would cause major traffic to this site and forum.From there I think interest and participation could blow up. I really see this as a very healthy activity that should be encouraged.

It is enjoyable,and the results and progress,and persistence is real,and challenging...all positive traits.I didn't even know ball stretching existed a year ago.

the correct response should be how do we gain a wider awareness of our somewhat niche hobby / kink surely one of our many MPs must indulge ?

It would be useful if there were more traffic on the forum, but what really matters is quality and not quantity. We have members with the knowledge to swiftly answer queries and offer opinions based on experience, so what more do we really want?

I do wonder though just how many ball stretchers are out there. There seem to be plenty of places selling weights, so I am guessing that there are more weighted guys out there than one might imagine.

I am also developing a fledgling interest in pegging, and am a regular listener to Ruby Ryder's podcasts. She runs classes in Los Angeles on the subject and operates two websites. You would guess that there is a substantial community centred around her web presence, but there isn't a lot of traffic on her forum, so I guess that there are lots doing it, rather than wanting to talk about doing it.
Ball stretching for 3 years on and off, and slowly getting the desired low-hangers.

i totally agree if you belong to this forum you should post and at least update your avatar. from the time i joined i decided that if i am to belong to such an illustrious group, then i should post. it is great to see the progress of others as it is an incentive to get feedback as to how well we are doing. the advice on this forum are invaluable to new and long time stretchers. we are such a diverse lot and it so good to see such great Q&A participation.
