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.

Thanks! I'll make a note of that one [:D]

participator..or participant
Thanks Karen! Seems obvious now!...

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>
