If you draw a square and put a circle in the square with the edge of the circle touching the sides of the square what percentage of space is left if you remove the amount in the circle ?

Is this figure the percentage of space we have lost when the Avitars were changed to circles ?

Or is it the percentage of members that moved to the new forum?

I make it 21.5%.

Assuming the square is 2x2 then it's area is 4

the radius of the circle would be 1 so it's area would be Pi*r^2 =3.14 (2 decimal places)

Area lost would be 4-3.14=0.86 Which is 21.5% of the square's area.

Happy to be corrected if my maths is wrong.

Do you think we can get our subscriber fees reduced by that to make up for the loss?

Talking of percentages eBay look like they are considering a fee rise to 12%.

That would really screw the pooch as 10% is already too high.

That said the same applies here with every line rental rise.

Eventually a cut off crash point will be hit and the bubble will burst.
