I can now officially announce that May 2010 was a record setting month for our humble little forum. We had 258,211 page views last month! That's absolutely amazing and I want to thank all of our members and all our lurkers for making it happen. You guys are the BEST!!

Hmm, this forum is filled with new members every day, so we're gonna have more of these record months. :)

Anyhow, I'm happy for now! :D

Let's have nectar instead. ;) I've got just 200,000 page views on my name so far. So for the other 58,211, I will thank my fellow members. :P
Just kidding. Congratulations to all! :D

Heck, I remember seeing only 20 or 30 in one day on here.  I started as a member way back and lurked for some time.  Congrats on a great site and welcome all new members.

We've hit a real turning point for the Guide and the Forum. We're breaking records every day! It will level off soon, but the increase in traffic is here to stay. A big thank you to our oldtimers and a hearty welcome to all the newcomers!  :D

Having so many people online at the same time will be pretty difficult I think, because some of us (maybe most) are coming from other country's, and therefore living in another timezone.

It actually works out really well, Leto. We have people from all over the world and the different timezones seem to make the traffic evenly spaced throughout the day.

I remember in January when I joined this forum, the most online at one time was 32 I think. It's now doubled that! This place is just getting more and more popular!

If we thought May was good, we're completely mind-blown by June. We passed 500,000 page views on the forum and the guide itself has finally hit 1,000,000. Incredible!

If you build it, they will come.  In this case, what you've built is a first-rate guide & forum.  Congratulations.

Well Carl, that's maybe 50 000 individuals (is that reasonable?) that now know your name and all the work you (and everybody else here for that matter) put into this. How does it feel? ;D

June just exploded with pageviews and traffic.  The Guide passed the 1,000,000 mark and the Forum passed the 500,000 mark.  That's just incredible!  I've been telling Carl since we started to just be patient, keep doing good work, and it will happen.  Sure enough, it did happen!  I'm so excited and proud!  Now to see what July brings.  :D

Yes, Pam. Content is king. We've done a good job covering most of the bases over time, with that patience you told me of, thanks to suggestions here and our own brainstorming. There are only a few things that aren't covered in the overall picture and I'm sure they'll be taken care of in due time. It's particularly exciting because the whole staff is unified in the goal and we're all working to make it even better. I look forward to posting another one in August.  8)

So you want to know why?  Other than the obvious terrific guide?  It's because of the "play nice" factor.  I think people are getting fed up with rude, aggressive, off color and vulgar comments.  This is a nice, clean, safe place to visit where even kids can poke their noses in without mom or dad getting upset.  I know it's one of the things that has kept me here.  Then of course, there are the fabulous moderators and posters and people I have come to look upon as my all over the world friends and family!  Thank you for all of those good things you guys, and for making newbs like myself feel at home, and a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS!  You guys are awesome.

Thank you, Joria.  Keeping this forum clean and pleasant has been the number one priority.  I hate to see forums that spiral down into the sewer with all the hatefulness and rude behavior.  I know from my experience at JayIsGames that it's possible to have a good community who respect each other and behave politely.  Jay's site is set up differently from ours, but courtesy should be expected anywhere.  The "play nice" atmosphere brings out the best in people and we almost never have a problem with a member being rude.  It's very rare.  I'm glad to hear you think it's a good atmosphere for kids, too.  That's something we always keep in mind, and not just the kids coming, but also if their parents came to visit.  I want any visiting parents to feel comfortable about their kids coming here to visit and chat about the game.  :)

Again, thanks for the kind words.  It means the world to me and the staff.
