By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

    The announcement for 10,000 members was for the G+ community.

    @aladdin I think there are many more than this. Once there was announcement for 10,000th member but i am not sure. Is there any counter for this?

    I bet in 2017 there are even more people on the forum. I wonder how many members are here now?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 27,055 mod
    At a guess, I reckon several 1000 but I think quite a lot of people join and then never contribute more than a few comments.
  • RaraAvisRaraAvis Posts: 93 ✭✭
    @mheredge But actually as it is said you should be active in order to do more on the forum. Or maybe it goes only for the new members.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 27,055 mod
    I think the number of active member must be a lot less @RaraAvis and also if a member doesn't do anything for over a year, I think Lynne can delete them.
  • RaraAvisRaraAvis Posts: 93 ✭✭
    I see. Thanks a lot for your explanation @mheredge. Could you be so kind to tell me what should a member do exactly in order not to be deleted?

    Thank you in advance.

    Do as you are doing @RaraAvis, just keep active, make comments and join in whenever you can. You can also practice speaking a one of the Skype sessions. You need to contact Lynne for this.
