We can comment that we are not confident whether the contributor breakdown mirrors the readership breakdown.
Perhaps this can be addressed as best as possible by looking at

1. the total number of registered forum members
against
2. the number of readers by way of Google Analytics info.

I have noticed that most times when I log on to the forum, there are many more unregistered/unlogged in readers than members participating during that time. I've always wondered why and if there are really that many "unofficial" readers of the forum. But it would be good to show the numbers which can suggest that useful information posted is being re-read by many, many others. This could support even more thoughtful and complete questions and posts.
