AfterDawn: Tech news

Over 250,000 forum messages

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 21 Sep 2003 8:54 User comments (18)

We just wanted to announce that yesterday we reached one of those big milestones that we've set for ourselves and now we have more than 250,000 forum messages in our discussion forums.
We launched our discussion forums in their current form back in February, 2001 and since then, they've grown and grown to reach the current state where we get total of over 700 messages a day to our three main discussion forum areas, English forums, Finnish forums and DVDXCopy forums.

Our main English forums have appx. 150,000 messages now and other two forums have 50,000 messages each. Forums have currently 84,000 registered members and over 50,000 discussion threads.

Thanks for you, our users -- without you, we wouldn't have achieved this!

Klingon, 1M will be reached a whole lot faster than the 0.25M, so I think you will be around.
