if this ratio of your forum is high it shows you will have good future

for comparing with other forums the two forum must have almost same situations such as audiences languages countries internet connection its software and etc...

this ratio for me is 3.1(my alexa rank in my country is 368)mine is VB
other forum with similar situation 2.1(its alexa rank is 133 im my country) then I think my forum will have better future

what do u think?

Hamids54, how are you defining "active?" Are you using a metric like recency of visiting the site? Posting? There's little doubt that a better community has a higher ratio of active to inactive, but this will change over time. I.e., a five year old forum will likely have more members who have stopped posting than a one year old forum, even though it may be a vibrant community.
