And just to put a bit more data out there and get it into perspective, we have in any given month:
- about 1.5 million people stopping by to look.
- about 150,000 of those who are registered users.
- about 15,000 of those who actively participate.

It turns out that this follows the 90-9-1 rule which states that for any website 90% of the people come to lurk, 9% will register but not regularly contribute, and 1% make the contribution.

In the past we haven't fully realized the value of that 1%, but we do now. In fact, we're launching a new program shortly called RCG Plus which will offer more to our highly prolific and trusted 1%-ers. Thanks guys for all you do for the community here!
