Over 250,000 registered members

Over 250,000 registered members Few hours ago we reached the milestone of 250,000 registered members on our site. This gives us a striking reminder of the popularity of our site and also highlights our growth during the year 2004, as we announced in April, 2004 that we had just reached the milestone of 100,000 registered member. So, in just over 8 months, we've grown our userbase by 150,000 -- it took originally almost five years to reach the first 100,000. Amazing, simply amazing.
We would like to thank all of our users for making this site one of the most popular multimedia sites in the world and hope that we can "deliver" to your needs also in year 2005. We have several new ideas and developments coming up for year 2005 and we wish that we can continue to meet -- or exceed -- the needs of our loyal users, in terms of news reporting, guides, software selection and discussion forums.

I would personally also wish to thank all of our discussion forum moderators who have done excellent job by creating one of the most popular tech discussion forums in the world. Without moderators' work and determination, the forums would have collapsed into an anarchy years ago, but because of their hard work, our forums have built a reputation for the whole site as a place to be and a place to get your questions answered with ease.

Thank you!

-Petteri Pyyny, webmaster

I second the comment from slmh1296. Scuba Pete is the top help and the most friendly sounding. Keep it up Pete! A great site all round. Thanks as well to the team at AD.
