    Cool List of Ubuntu forum members

    I'm trying to find the complete list of members but all I could get is members who are online.

    (at http://ubuntuforums.org/online.php)

    It would be really helpful if someone could point where I can get the complete list of members. I see that the Ubuntu statistics at the bottom of the forum page says :

    Members: 883,375, Active Members: 61,997

    Isn't there a search facility to look at the members list? or atleast if I could get the active members list ?

    Regards

    That would be a very, very long list. Is there something you're trying to do that can't be accomplished by searching for a certain username?

    Re: List of Ubuntu forum members

    EDavidBurg,

    I'm a Ph.D student working on social network analysis. I would atleast require the active members list. I understand it is a big list. But it would give a complete picture of whats happening in the forum.

    Is there someway I could search for the active members atleast?

    Thank you for the reply.

    Regards
    Prasanth

    I don't think there's any way to get such a list. I've certainly not noticed a way to get one.

    I think the online members list is the closest you would get to something you want/need.

    And I don't think it should be released. No offense but I can see all new spam coming my way

    A majority of the open source projects' forums have this facility of listing all members and providing a search engine to search.sort members. I'm surprised that Ubuntu does not have one.

    Our servers are so overloaded as it is, I think indexing 880,000 members would make them explode.

    Re: List of Ubuntu forum members

    Is there some indirect way of accessing the data. For example, go in to each social group, then collect the members under each group?

    Wondering if every member has to be a part of a social group?

    +1 on the privacy concerns. I get enough spam as it is, and the occasional spam from someone with a mailing list based on email addresses that have been harvested from the forums and/or launchpad.
