In America it would be a contributionizer.

If the receiver of a post is a postee, would the sender be a postit?

I thought more a collective noun - showing a person with ongoing purpose.

participator..or participant
Thanks Karen! Seems obvious now!...
Now can we make a truncated version for the 'kids' modern speak? ;)

Just as the Ford Motor Company abbreviates to FoMoCo, (not to be confused with MoFoCo), "Forum Contributor" would naturally abbreviate to "FoCo", or perhaps "FoCon".

Demo & Neil - that's funny 'Focor' is a fairly close approximation of the noise that comes out of my mouth when I intercept a PotentialSpammer (Or PotSp'er as they will henceforth be known!) ;D

....

Right I'm off... See all you 'pants soon! ;) <NB. *joke* works better where proper English bis spoken>
