At first, I thought "I have no idea" but then it was easier than I thought to figure it out...

... or an average of 5 per week.

And I don't use Trados (often 80% of all the threads here involve tech support for it), otherwise my average might be much higher.

My guess was way out Sep 3, 2017

I guessed 100-500, but using Teresa's method, I find it is 2666 (or 2667 including this one).

Customer calls Sep 3, 2017

This reminds me of the old bit about a panicky computer user calling to customer service: My computer won't turn on! Help!
Technician: Have you checked if the computer is plugged to an outlet, sir?
Customer: The power cord? Uh...er...no. Lemme see: (sigh of relief) Oh, it was unplugged! Thanks!

With or without Quick Polls? Sep 4, 2017

My total is almost 1400. But if we don't consider the Quick Polls, it will be less than 100. So that's what I answered, because IMO, in order to be considered a Forum, it has to be a little deeper and longer than the Quick Polls. And I think it would be the same for everyone else, i.e. more than 90% Quick Polls, and less than 10% real forums.
