50 thousand total forum topics!!!

Post by Husker » Fri Sep 04, 2015 9:19 pm

Wholly crap. I step away from the site for a while, and wow, it explodes! I am pretty sure that number of topics has doubled over the last year!

yep its been busy for sure, friendlier, a greater amount of sharing and been great to see some previously fairly quiet long time members come out of their shell and share their great wealth of knowledge along with some great innovation from some of the newbies :thumbup:

Saw the spoon feed thread, and really liked that. Things certainly are in competent hands. Some good people have things running really smooth it seems.

I will probably have to make things squeak a bit in the near future, and upgrade the forum software again. It's been about a year since it was updated (IIRC), and it has been a version behind for a while now. I just have to find time to sandbox the new version to make sure it 'appears' to be working properly before unleashing it on the masses.

Husker what ever happened to theMessage in a bottle? Did it get sent to Canada? Recently came up again.

Not only 50000+ post almost 28000 members. Seems like there is half a dozen new members a day.

Out of curiosity, how many of those 28,000 are regular contributors? Seems like 90% of the posts are carried by a sub community of maybe 50 or so. It's amazing the breadth and depth of information curated here by the mods... Genuinely thank you guys for kicking in the time. I know you all have "day jobs" but those of us trying to figure out which way to turn a keg appreciate everything you do here.

Yeah its always the way it is and who the 50 to 100 active members changes from year to year as some drop off the radar and others come to the fore, all the forums are like this :thumbup:
