    Was wondering if there is a link to a list of members here on MR.

    I know how to get to the list of members with the most posts and most likes, but I cannot seem to find anything that would list all the members.

    Is there such a thing here? Seems odd that almost any forum software would let you do this, but not MacRumors.

    PS. I know I can search for a specific member, but that isn't what I want to do.

    We used to have a member directory, yes. However I think it was disabled years ago due to spamming and not really ever been brought back

    Thanks. Was just interested in seeing how many G5s were out there.

    I do not have the exact numbers of how many G5s, and G4s, and others there are currently on MR.

    However, in his regular, biannual, six monthly statistical analysis of posters, (which was posted in mid January, if memory serves) @Doctor Q did a statistical analysis of what percentage of the total membership was comprised by the various categories.

    Now there's an interesting idiom, if you think about it.

    Under VB, it was fairly intensive task to pull up the member list, and in the name of resource management, arn disabled the list.

    Actually, it is a rather nice example of what might be termed 'British' (i.e. proper) English.

    Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for the explanation.

    Thanks Mike. At least I know why.

    I've always been partial to British English. To my eye, the spelling seems proper.

    When we named our daughter we used the British spelling, Honour.

    Hmm, it never occurred to me that this might be considered a British expression; it has been quite commonly heard (and used) by me in the US...

    I only see 4 G5s there, the rest are Mac Pros. But 4 is also the number I have :)

    I believe some of the recent statistics related to that appear in a post at http://forums.macrumors.com/threads...ted-january-2016.1948547/page-2#post-22443415

    Well, I don't know if the new forum software solves the problems that the old software had (re viewing a list of members), but it would be rather interesting if we had access to that information with the ability to slice and sort on various criteria.

    Agreed. I have to say that I have long found that sort of information fascinating myself.
