I'm helping my husband repair an old rototiller with a Briggs and Stratton 1302920. We're having trouble with the linkage and spring to the governor.

Very good point there! There's a lot more folks using the site than folks that subscribe. I think if someone wants to be a regular user of the site long term they should step up to the plate and commit if possible.

There are in fact 85,802 registered users. Junebug was the 100,000 user to register. Therefore, there have been 14,198 rejects, a.k.a. spammers, scammers, those who could not or would not confirm their email address, those who let their email address fall by the wayside, those who dropped out, etc., etc.

And guess who has checked the IP location, edited, and approved all those users? Yikes! These numbers do not include our new automated first level approval system that simply rejects ALL applicants listed on the www.stopforumspam.com system before a user number is assigned. This has protected us from tens of thousands of spambot applications. They currently have 12,222,365 spammer records in their database.

These numbers also do NOT include the hundreds of thousands of casual guest visitors who simply read the site pages. As of this very instant, that comparison ratio is 375 (62 members and 313 guests.)

Harry, is there any way to see what your user number is?
Also I was wondering if there is any way to search members by state, just to see how many are in your area.

Welcome to the Stak Junebug!

Hold your mouse over your user name above left in any of your posts and a link including your user number will show at the bottom left of your screen. (u=)

Use this link: http://www.smokstak.com/forum/memberlist.php?do=search
Use the LOCATION field.

The problem with searches is that some people abbreviate, some misspell and when that happens, a computer cannot find the key word. I've been trying to standardize new members in this regard. I find 1459 in Missouri and 56 in ,MO and 688 in , MO but that includes Montana. The search tool gets fussy about short words: Two letter state codes are for the post office!
