I just saw an account that was the 438,000 made or something.

That's absolutely crazy lol. :thumbsup:

I'm surprised you guys get through even an 8th of the logs posted in the HijackThis forum nowadays.

So are we.

Considering the relative newness of BC, the visit count and membership certainly adds credence to the old saying: build a better mousetrap.....

Our Tutorial section has over 100 tutorials and has had over 20 million total views; at any time during the day, we have 2000 people using the forums.

And some of us remember how happy we felt, just a few years ago, when we reached 600 Members!

Lol yeah it's very surprising. I mean, if you compare mine and your accounts, it went from 113 members to four thousand in six months. I wonder why it was so successful at the beginning..

We would be surprised too....lol.....it's impossible. :flowers: We've had as many as a thousand logs a day during peak times, but anywhere between 500 and 700 per day is about average. Some people get really upset about the wait, but we can't help it....we do the best we can. Oh, and those numbers don't even reflect the large number of threads every day in the Am I Infected forum.

My honest opinion of why this site is so popular...

When you're being helped no one talks down to you; you're treated with respect no matter how computer ignorant you are and everyone is patient (even when you ask the "stupidest" question or need directions clarified or repeated, no matter how many times).

I was at another site, along the same lines as this one, and I made an error and almost lost my head in the process. I'll never go anywhere but here now that I found you. :thumbsup:

In my opinion the only stupid question is the one that doesn't get asked. I know a lot of other folks here feel the same way. :thumbsup:

In the 6 months between jg and I joined there were some 2500 new memebers.
In the 40 days between PrittStick and I = 1300. A big jump in the rate already.
Well from me to BBlueize,newest member in the thread= 392,000 in 5 years.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

And I'm one of those who doesn't know a lot but always gets great help and it is always appreciated! :thumbsup:

I have learned so much from just reading through the topics over the past
couple of years and agree that the 'helpers' are so courteous and IMO,
quite restrained in dealing with some impatient members.

I just wish all members would adopt the same courteous approach;
so many times, I have noticed that several members regularly post,
but never give any feedback.

I don't believe that anyone particularly wants thanks for their helpful input;
solving a problem for someone is reward in itself, but it would be so
useful for others reading the topics, to learn how a problem had been solved.

(If it hadn't been solved, you can bet they'd be back on!).

I'm going to have to Agree Whole-Heartedly with Teacup61.

the only stupid question is the one that doesn't get asked

And then you have the spammers, which represent part of the number difference between the sign up number and the actual number of members listed on the front page. :thumbsup:
