AfterDawn: Tech news

Over half a million registered members

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 21 Mar 2006 22:49 User comments (35)

Over half a million registered members Last night we achieved yet another milestone when 500,000th member registered to our site. As it was only just over a year ago when we had our 250,000th member, the growth of our userbase has been just phenomenal over the last year or so.
We have already achieved a status as one of the largest digital multimedia sites in the world and as we still enjoy constant growth (in terms of site traffic, registered members and our discussion forums activity), I just hope that it proves we've done "something right". Obviously, I must thank all our dedicated forum members, moderators and "addicts" who have helped us to create one of the most active digital multimedia communities in the world -- without the help from the active members of our community, we couldn't have made our site what it is today.

We are also happy to see that our recent members-only features, such as our user profile pages have gained popularity, despite some of the features still being in "beta phase". I'd also like to thank all of our 500,000 members for sending us feedback on daily basis, as this feedback has helped and will help us to develop our site to suit your needs and hopefully to make the site more appealing to your needs.

But, again, thank you everybody, lets hope we'll reach the 1M milestone soon :-)

Afterdawn.com deserves everyone one of those 500k members. This site has been my homepage since I can remember. :D 1 million is coming.

Congrats AD. Keep up the good work!

Couldn’t agree more! I must say that this site has changed me for the better, every time I need information or I’m in doubt about my digital media, hardware, software and even games. When I get home, Afterdawn.com is the place to be. Congratulations on your 500,000th member, rest assures that this is only the beginning. It’s only going to get better.

I wish to echo my congrats and appreciation for the forums. Needless to say, the answers to my search on a number of questions and issues have not only been answered but in a timely manner, and it is great to hear from others with the same and different problems that one can identify with, as well as share in the answer. Keep up the good work, and thanks for having a forum that supercedes techs from companoes.

This really is a very resourcefull site. I LOVE IT.

Congrats dRD and the whole afterdawn team! This will keep the mods on their toes, but I'm sure they're up for the challenge!! They're all very good at what they do and help the site be as good as it is along with a lot of the addicts who point people in the right direction and keep eyes out for offensive posts. Well done guys.

Why did you double post in different threads? in the future you should try to not double post, its against the rules and a mod will make it rain.. on a side note, im interested in what the break down is percentage wise of aa's to sm's to m's to jm's to n's maybe a mod has that #

What a nice bit of news for me to wake up to. I do believe that I'll have a Bloody Mary to celebrate. You know, an event like this certainly merits a double! Cheers to dRD! Cheers to all of the Administrators! Cheers to all of the Writers! Cheers to all of the Moderators! Cheers to all of the other Staff Members! (It looks like I'll need another Bloody Mary.) Cheers to all of the AfterDawn Addicts! Cheers to all of the AD Senior Members! Cheers to all of the AD Members! Cheers to all of the AD Junior Members! (Allright, why is my glass empty again? Be right back.) Two Cheers to all of th AD Newbies! (God knows, it isn't easy being a Newbie.) Cheers to anyone who I inadvertantly left out! (WTF, it looks like I inadvertently misspelled inadvertantly!) BTW, my letters in this post are starting to look a little crooked. Please excuse this as I think I may be having a slight malfunction with my keyboard. I'll have to get that checked out. I can hardly wait until next year to celebrate the 1 millionth AfterDawn Member! CHEERS TO ALL!!! (Sorry, I forgot that ALL CAPS is against the rules.) (:

What an accomplishment! The folks at AfterDawn earned this one hands down. I expected nothing less with the majority of people on this site being respectful and courteous, and always willing to help you when needed. AfterDawn Crew, Great Job making this happen.
