This list has been reformatted and done as per Theodore's wishes.

Due to the deletion of an account, which account I have no idea, this list is almost certainly inaccurate now. After my Spanish final, I will completely redo the list with the strictest accuracy.

Are you going to do that every time a new person joins, or an inactive account is deleted?  I'm not sure that's worth it...

Perhaps an annual update would be suitable.

Normally I could just change the numbers, but I have no idea which account got deleted or whether that account had posts. That throws a wrench in the works, so to speak, and I have no idea how the list should be updated now, if at all. Besides, I used some guesswork in the original list which probably harmed its initial accuracy. That, and I might make lists showing the nationality and birth years of our members too, those would be neat.

You'll all be pleased to note that I've begun work on a comprehensive-as-can-be list covering the religion, location, and birth years of all our members with posts. I've gotten through the first 115 members, just about 300 to go.

I have completed the comprehensive-as-can-be demographic survey of the forum. I will post the results sometime in the next few days, assuming I don't have to alter them because of deletions or joinings.

The comprehensive-as-can-be demographic survey of the forum was done over May 4th through May 13th. It covers the religion, location, and birth years of all members of this forum with at least one post. It will never be totally complete, as many members have left or had their accounts deleted, and thus their information is all but inaccessible for me. Also, you'll notice some differences from the previous survey, which was confined to religion only. This is because I cut down on assumptions unless I could infer something from information on their profile or from hints they dropped about themselves in posts or even in linked websites of theirs and even on Facebook! I hope you all like this survey, I put a lot of hours into making sure this was as comprehensive and accurate as I could, within reasonable effort.

Wow.  Thanks for what must have been a lot of work.  I'm not sure exactly what this data proves about monarchists, but it's interesting to see.  If you're ever in the mood for another such project, would you be interested in doing a similar but smaller survey limited to members with at least, say, 50 posts?  That might be more informative in terms of who has actually used the forum regularly, and I bet there would be relatively (not just absolutely) fewer "unknowns."

64 members were confirmed to be born between 1986 and 1991, just for starters.

I spent 8 days working on that, from May 4th to May 11th. And I have a Word document with the names of every memeber listed in their category. So when I feel like, I might save another copy of the document and alter that one to remove all the memebers who have less then 50 posts. But I don't know when I'll do that.

Maybe you should have used Excel.  Good job though at what seems to be a tedious and laborious task.

Would Theodore still like me to do the 50 post plus more restricted survey? It would only contain 86 of our 413 members with posts so far.

It would seem good to focus on the people who have contributed in the last couple of years or so.  If you want to get a sense of who are the active members.

The problem is that I have little way of easily knowing who has contributed recently. I'd have to go through all 413 members with posts again, not something I'm willing to do right now.

Btw, did you all know that 110 members of this forum were born in 1980 or later, and thus saw only three abolitions of monarchies in their entire lives, and did not see the fall of any dynasty until the abolition of Nepal's monarchy in 2008? We've been pretty lucky to see only one abolition per decade in the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s and 2010s (none yet this decade). The 1970s saw at least 8 abolitions of monarchies, probably more.
