    From April this year:
    http://www.chronicles-network.com/forum/5227-2000-a-3.html

    After finding out we just crossed 2,000 members:

    I'm 5 days out - we're currently on member 2,999 - and by morning, I expect will be past 3,000 members.

    Good show. :)

    Yes that's impressive Brian but not really unsuprising for this forum.

    It would be fascinating to know what the breakdown by country and perhaps age group the membership constitutes though...

    He seems like a nice fellow!:)


    *nod nod* that would be very interesting actualy.....prehaps we should conduct a census?It would fit into the whole christmas theme!:D
    No seriously, that would be cool to have some sort of set up to show where 3000 people divide up around the globe and who is more dominant in numbers and such

    I am actually looking into getting a map set up here, where each member can place a pin in their location. I've had a forum running different software do that before, but there doesn't seem to be such a feature for vbulletin at present, which is a shame. Still looking into it, though. :)

    Very cool. I'd been watching the numbers, but then I got busy and number 3000 got here while I was off doing other things.

    Go, us.:D

    I'm trying to avoid having to use third-party applications, especially Google Maps (as Frappr uses) as I think Google has some real privacy protection issues, so I'm against using any Google tools at present. :)

    Thanks for the suggestion, though. :)

    Could maybe try doing a poll to see who's from what continent.

    that would be cool!....if only it could be assured that everyone replied to the poll, (cos you just know they wont:D...i mean 3000 people! ) not all those members post, and an even less percentage post regularly.
    Of course brian would know for sure, i just get that impression by what i see

    Not every one would vote and the other problem would be it going completely off topic.

    I will attempt to set up a poll, sticky it in the intro section and close the thread. Hmm not sure if people could vote if I closed it. I will do a test run.
