This happens to be my 5,000th posting to North East Maritime (NEM) so how can I wow you?!
As we passed NEM's 4th anniversary on 12 May, some facts and figures may not come amiss.
Our index page tells us that in this time we have had 34467 posts on 15078 different topics (although we know there is some duplication of topics).
So, a few boring averages!
34467 posts = 8617 per year = 165 per week = 24 per day;
15078 topics = 3769 per year = 72 per week = 10 per day.
We are credited with having 250 members, although again we know quite a few are no longer active; and not everyone looks in every day (do they know what they're missing?!)
The leader board for number of postings runs:
TEESMAN (Mick): 5056 (invariably with photo quality much better than mine!)
Teesships (Ron): 5000
Whickham (Dave): 4595
magoonigal (Paul): 4534
northeast (George): 3942
tynebuoy (Kevin): 1719
MadMaxLab (Peter): 1247
hartlepoolmonkey (Stan): 1085
with several others in the upper hundreds.
So, all I can say is, let's keep up the good work, folks!
