Ratio of views to comments...

Over some time I've noticed that the ratio of instructables pageviews to commenters has increased on the side of pageviews, both with new and pre-existing instructables.

The featuring of instructables in categories and channels has definitely increased pageviews overall but with less commenters.

It could be that there are more visitors overall but that more are non-members, or that the community has extended a bit.  Though this isn't unusual on the internet, most places have a ratio of views to comments of less than 1%...

Just something I've noticed on my own and few other instructables, not much more than a thought...

I for one tend not to comment when the 'ible is old or when I can see the person has not answered a lot of questions that were asked.

So what is our ratio? And are there really other communities out there besides Instructables?

There are, though few have this kind of format, which certainly encourages more active community relations... - Did that sound dirty? If so oops, I spent the day writing an effects debate in innuendo...

I would like to know, as an average, though looking at my recent published the ratio's very variable but it's affected a lot by conversations.  Having the database at a persons disposal would make it easy to see how many individuals comment on instructables vs. views. 
 You speak innuendo? I only have the accent. My local library has tapes (yeah, tapes) to teach people to speak with different accents, I used to rent them and learn the accent because it only takes about 2 weeks rather than the years it takes to learn the language.

I don't even know what to say... I'm either in love or a tad horrified... 
I think you are horrified to find yourself in love... let's get married and we can have Killer Bean Babies

 Despite them sounding like knock off mexican food I like this plan... 

Just wait for the elope pun...
 Oh I already got it! Wow, you are fluent in innuendo.

That said I'd love to hear you grapple with the intricacies of the language...  
 Indeed I do grapple but the intricacies are what I am passionate about. An "ible writer from another planet (Brussels) wrote that his project was "cool uh?" I had to explain that he meant "cool huh?" and that "cool uh" was really as if he had written "cool duh", hows that for an intricacy? Now get out of here and go have a Guinness or something for your birthday.
