That's fair; members focus on certain areas so participation within that area is probably more relevant. The amount of charter feedback provided by members in some areas might actually be very, very low and it might not always be a problem; some charters are non-controversial and routine, while everyone may have an opinion on HTML...

It's a clear signal the AB is simply unimportant to 75% of the members. And it's possible that this is specific to the AB. Not sure how, but I'd like to know. Do we know what TAG turnout is like, incidentally?

I didn't think I could become even less interested in the AB than I was but I suppose was wrong.
