How did you find that? I wonder what Bob Stewart would say is the true number of active AR members - and that would depend on how you define active

Active Rain or active in Active Rain?  If it's the first, there's around 268,000 registered members.  As far as active, you can look at point standings but that doesn't tell you who are the active ones.  And define active.  Posts or loginins in the past ___ days?

I am aware of 50 active members in the Q&A section.

I have no clue regarding who has published a blog in the past 90 days (a liberal interpretation of active)

Others have mentioned a bone yard of Groups who have the light on but no one is home.

Five thousand. That is a good number and should be a great representation of the diversity of thought and models within the real estate industry.

I think most agents wander over here some time to check it out. But in my community, most of them have under 100,000 points so they don't see the value in it. I wonder how many Rainmaker accounts there are? That would be a more accurate number of who is really here. Or maybe that is what you meant. (BTW, I am impressed too!)
