    We need only 3640 more posts to break into the Top 400, catching our arch rival site Edge of Nowhere, which is currently off for maintenance.

    Why are they our arch rival? Because they are just ahead of us in the Big Boards list, that's why!

    Roughly 50% more members than this time a year ago... damned fine coffee.

    Sometimes feels like it as well.

    Well Q, if you were to look the other way for the next 10 hours, I could easily bring in another 3000 or so. I'm not sure how informative or coherent they would be though . . . :D :rolleyes:

    Who keeps these statistics? More importantly, why?



    Put me in for the same. :D

    At roughly 2 posts/minute (isn't there a 30 second time limit between consecutive posts?) you would need 25 hours to get 3000 posts. So you'd need the Mods to take a weekend off....

    But we've grown so much since then - position 413 to 401. :D

    There's a surprisingly low amount of traffic going through the Guides - 4%.

    Actually, I don't think that's that low. The front page and forums are obviously going to get a lot of traffic. 4% is pretty good for what it is. And that's 4% of a large number.

    Yeah, I guess you're right. It's just that I would've thought it'd be more. They're easily the most informative part of the site.
