    I suddenly noticed that the number of members right now is 29,709. So we were pretty close to hitting the 30,000 mark. I am guessing around 50 new members join up daily, so we should be seeing that exact number turning over next week?

    I remember a news piece ages ago about a guy going for a public Turkish Steam Bath (dunno where) was suddenly caught by a bunch of serious looking people and dragged into a special room, where he was pleasantly surprised with some gifts and all, because he was the 10 millionth visitor there or something.

    Would be interesting to do something like that here ;)

    30,000th visitor gets dragged to the back by the DGVPG, then is awarded a free iPod mini with color preference. (Go for pink!! LOL)

    It's almost celebrating time!

    Figures. I just joined. I'm the kind of person who walks into the grocery store just ahead of their one-millionth customer.

    This very thought has been running through my mind. Having 30,000 members will be quit a milestone. Maybe arn is waiting for that milestone before he makes the change over to a new looking forum.

    edesignuk, again congratulations on a creative emotion display. ;)

    Not to take this thread a little off-topic, but isn't vB 3.0 out? Wouldn't it be kinda cool to have vB 3.0 when our forum population hits 30,000? Or maybe not...

    Please don't be too sad eyelikeart, it's always great to reminisce. Your deserve some of the credit for the continued growth of MacRumors. arn is the overall leader, but you and Mr. Anderson do the day to day trouble shooting which is greatly appreciated. Thank you! ;)

    Sure, but there are only about 5000 real members.

    The others have been banned over and over and others haven't come back since that initial visit. :D

    now come on wdlove, that's just a little too much. Frank isn't sad, or probably even cares....he was just joking. You need to work on that :D

    And you forgot Rower, Mudbug, Ambitious Lemon and Blake Spot there...

    While we're on the subject, I think the member list needs to be cleaned out. There are hundreds, if not thousands of people who have never posted....not once.

    It's funny, I still almost feel like a newbie, even though I'm a 'tared Demi :). In the 10 months or so I've been here, I've definately noticed a huge increase in the amount of active members. It just feels so much bigger here. What I like is that the site has expanded to fit the members--MacBytes, DailyTunes, ect.

    Cool. I remember the very first posters. Was like NetworkMan (jefhatfield), Eyelikeart, Mr. Anderson, MacUser (myself), Kishba, and a few others. That was cool.

    Aww ...

    Wow so many members.


    But true, if you delete the members who never posted it is slimmed down quite a bit.

    Thanks everyone for the great memories!

    :D

    When the 30,000th member joins, somebody please point out who it is so we can give him/her a special welcome. However that's done.
