Still, I have to tip my top hat to a site that has over a half-million members and over 40 million posts, regardless of what they are about.

I just wonder how they back the site up or if they do. You think Howard wails loudly now every time we have server problems - imagine him losing 43,000,000 posts.

I also wonder how many moderators they must have. Hory Cao!

It is a lot - I wonder if anyone has a poster with a million posts...

Record online users 1014 (04-01-2008 02:40 PM) Top poster [How Brown - 32909] Most replied to thread [The Daily Prevarication] Most viewed thread ['What a pretty necklace'.] Most popular forum [Weekly Caption Contest]

The proprietor has posted almost 25% of the posts herein. Imagine that.

Karen Trenouth packed 'em in so tightly for so long that she may never be displaced from that lofty perch.

A.P. Wolf may be gone, but his legacy lives on.

Who'da ever thought that a forum on caption contests would prove to be the most popular on a website devoted to Jack the Ripper? My theory is that the membership, thwarted in their eternal hope for more and gorier photographs of the ripper's victims, turns to viewing of Howard's train-wreck captions as the next best thing.

We continue to average only 54 members a day who log in. Hence the call to prune the inactive (over 400 days so) accounts. When Howard finally works through the 12 stages (he appears to be stuck in Denial) and reaches Acceptance, the axe will fall. Be so advised.

We also now average way less than 10 new threads per day. Looks like the Old Well isn't all that deep, what with the 'other' site drawing from it in greater quantity.

To have over a thousand people using a site of which a quarter of the posts are by Howard, represents a triumph of the human spirit over adversity.
