Milestones
« on: December 08, 2008, 11:44:14 PM »
We haven't had too much horn tooting recently. But we are apporaching one milestone, and we've passed another.
Recently, with mccriddsta moving into the top 50, all the posters in the top 50 are over 1000 posts.
Second we are now passing 199.14 posts/day. Very nearly at 200. We've slowed down a bit during the off season but we are still average between 200 and 300 per day.

Very cool, thanks Dmast!

300,000 posts is not too far off either.  Less than 10,000 posts away.  When the slams hit we should see around 500-800 posts per day.  Just try and keep up on those days!!!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Thanks for keeping us updated with those stats Dmas  :)

Thats cool that now the top 50 posters all have 1000 posts or more and that we're very close to going through the 200 posts per day average for the site  :cool:

Also that 300,000 Posts as a board I've been checking regularly for the last month or so and we're well under the 10,000 post mark so we can expect to break the milestone in the very early part of 2009.

Always crazy to look at posts per day because we average more than 200 per day nowadays but the original days of the forum are making us look bad.  :)
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Absolutely right because since we moved to the new board layout and what not we're averaging 389.9 posts per day  :scared: so those early days are taking the average way down. Although it takes a long time to up that average we've gradually increasing it month by month as start of the year I'm sure it was about 120-130 posts per day the average for the site  :)

Yeah, after about 2000 days in existence, it takes a lot of posting to slowly raise the overall numbers.

Thats pretty awesome that we are around the 2000 day mark for existence  :king: lets hope and I'm sure they'll be many more 2000s on top of that  :) Numbers are rising slowly but most important thing is all the numbers are going in the right way and increasing  :)

Total days in existance = 1461. It'll be summer of 2010 before we hit that milestone.

Just 1461 eh?  We had EZBoard for 2 years but we did not bring any of those posts over.  They would drop our average though.

My numbers start in Dec 2004. 2 years on EZBoard would put you over 2K though.

I'm wondering though does that include the very first board format Scott had for this place?
What month and year exactly did you start the Tennis4you name Scott?

I remembered I posted a lot under "guest" when I first started.  I hadn't bothered to register because - at that time - we could just post under 'guest' then Scott talked me into registering!  I probably wasted so many post that's not in my count now!  Silly me.... ..-)

344.76 posts per day this month on average, and this is the off season.  Not too shabby.
