BFC accounting/stats for last month

Feb 4, 1999
I am bored and thought it would be interesting to see what type of posts comprise most of the postings in a month in BFC's main forum. Here are the results, which are somewhat difficult to compile since there aren't exact definitions for each type of post content:
First of all, there were 163 different topics from the last 30 days.
1) Questions/info about particular knives, products, or brands- this category basically comprises all questions about specific products that are more general than review requests and that sort of thing (i.e. "What do you think about Lansky Sharpeners?")- 33 topics.
2) General discussion/off-topic/shooting the breeze- anything that is general discussion like about knife shows, who is in what state and where, introducing yourself to other members, etc- 35 topics.
3) Technical questions- mainly on steel and lock types, also handle materials, etc- 31 topics
4) Laws/politics/knife-user's rights- 2 topics.
5) Commercial postings- announcements about new products, pics of new products, advertisements- 9 topics.
6) What you carry, where you carry it, how you carry it, how you use it- 9 topics.
7) Reviews of knives, comparisons, or requests thereof- 12 topics.
8) (I'm out of space on my crappy text browser, so I have to put these all together...) Polls of whatever type (blade geometry, handle materials, etc)- 7 topics. Which knife is best (i.e. "What's the best hunting knife?" or "If you could only have 50,000 knives, which would the be...?")- 6 topics. 10) Fantasy technical features, "what if" (i.e. "Anyone want an integral lock Military?")- 2 topics. 11) Is this possible to find, if so who makes it?- 4 topics. 12) BFC announcements (i.e. "The winner is...")- 8 topics. I thought It was interesting, and several subjects show up multiple times, such as how to strop knives and what the merit of doing so is.

Gimme a break...I just spent 9-5 at the bike shop wrenching, so I deserve a few minutes of down-time, Dad!
