    I don't really consider myself as "active" member here, in essence, although I still guess I make some posts.

    yo:



    how do you define an active member, and come to think of it, where do those statistics come from?

    I actually have no idea how an active member is defined. Well, I seem to recall it was indeed something like what Ivy said.

    The reason is that I merely copied these statistics from the bottom of the forum page of both sites, and that's all. It required no cleverness or diligence.

    I'm betting that they are both set to default, and any admin that reads this says "oh, I didn't know that!"

    Pros of TypoC: More close knit community, more reasonable moderation, better interface, not so many subforms to wade through, oh and we definitely have the best emoticons.

    Pros of PerC: More type related posts, subforums for each MBTI and enneagram types.

    I'm on both forums but my activity on PerC is more off and on. Here I'm more of a regular poster.

    So I guess it's based on visits within a certain amount of days, not actually posting.

    A member is active if they have visited the board with a certain number of days. It is a configurable option and here it is set at 90 days.

    i find perc so visually distracting.
    they went a little overboard with
    the end user hacks from vbulletin.
    i hate all those like/heart this post
    add ons. and the username addons.

    and they have ads.

    they also have more cut and paste
    stuff from books.

    you know, featuer wise i've looked a bit into forums using this http://xenforo.com/ and its interesting, has mostly the same features as VB, but the real time alerts are petty cool - they just pops up as they are made, never need to hit the reload.

    I do think their ads suck. I have encountered sound ads and occassional alerts about ads from my protection software. And yeah most annoying, they self load without a manual refresh. An ad blocker can help if you have one.

    • Personality Cafe was opened in October of 2008, while Typology Central was opened in April of 2007. Thus, Personality Cafe is 1 and 1 half years younger than Typology Central, and Personality Cafe is about 75% the age of Typology Central.


    • Personality Cafe has an innumerably larger number of ugly icons than Typology Central.


    Having compiled this information in my listlessness, I now demand that at least one of you interpret it! What does it all mean? Make any interpretation you want. Here's my first attempt: It means that people are initially drawn in by oodles of ugly icons but quickly tire of them.

    • Lastly: The black rhinoceros has two horns, while the Indian rhinoceros has one horn, thus the white rhinoceros has 200% the number of horns as the Indian rhinoceros.
    I am a refugee from Personality Cafe (I left for ethical reasons). It was the first site I got into upon discovering MBTI. This was quite some time ago but what I initially noted was the age difference. PerC has a lot of youngsters. I inferred this by the types of posts and reading them. This age difference also correlated to ventrilo.

    I think the stats you derived reflect the motivations of the prior owner which have carried over statistically. The prior owner did everything he could to boost the number of members. He would make threads completely disappear without stating a reason or that he'd done so, he'd ban and reban people (those crafty proxy server "trolls") who he thought weren't adding to the site. Complaints by memebers were taken very seriously and punishments were meted out without discussion or any kind of transparency and without regard to the posted forum rules. He'd get on vent and verbally rip into people if his they did/said negative things about the site. This was also a stated policy of the site, if you linked to any other MBTI site, the post would be deleted and you'd get banned. The reason is now very apparent, to maximize value and return on investment.

    I believe the net effect of these "antics" were that people did not engage in robust discussions. Peoples feelings would get hurt and people would stop coming back to the site. Consequently many of the threads were (are still?) fluffy in nature.

    The afore mentioned I experienced first hand, including ventrilo and 2nd hand by speaking with people who had been banned or migrated to other sites.

    Interesting. It presently looks to me like PerC is considerable more transparent than TypoC.

    I left PerC around the time of my joining here, which was November 2009. If it has changed for the better, good! I'm partial to transparency. I presume this is because of the change in ownership.

    Now I'm curious... THANKS Unfortunately when I left, I sent Lance a message explaining my reasons for leaving the site and a request to ban me (lest he benefit from me being on the membership roles).
