Number of TitanicShack Q&A postings passes 7000 : LUSENET : TitanicShack : One Thread

According to the statistics page for this forum, over seven thousand postings have been posted here, as of today.

We are number two after TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) at an astounding 36377 postings, and before The Government of the United States at 5673.

Of course, it is a matter of opinion which of the top three are the most over-hyped. =) I expect that eventually we'll be number three, especially as the whole impeachment debate drags on, and the campaign for the 2000 elections starts rolling.

To put things into perspective, number four on the list is Large format photography at 2875 postings.

(Note: stats current at 20.51 (Pacific Time) on Thursday, 1999 January 14th.)

Are you sure those stats aren't current as of Thursday, January 14th, 1999, and not 1998? =)

Ha-ha, Thomas, if this site would ever become an incorporated business, I should have 10% stakes in it, as I realize I have been posting over 700 times! Wow, now when did this happen? :-)

Hello Tom: Well, in the corporate world, of which I am no longer a part of, being number three is the place to be! Congrats on your great site that I have enjoyed immensly over the past year!

Hey! Can anyone tell me if I am considered '' or ''? apparently is listed by writing 500 or so postings ( I do list myself as ), which seems a tad awkward considering I have only been here since August. ( a long time but hardly enough to qualify as to writing 500 postings ) Could I be It seems that far more people have written more than I have. I do think has about 100, but I'm not sure. Thanks! :-)

I can lay claim to dozens of posts. So can Niles, George, and many others. So don't worry, they aren't all yours.

I believe is the one Emma used for a while, the au standing for Australia, which is where she is from.

January 18th was a bad omen for this site. No one posted any responses AT ALL the entire day! I wonder how long since that happened - if ever?

Postings in the forum have settled-down, but I expect that everything will be online and active "forever".

I'll start running-up the free publicity engines over the next few weeks. I suspect that the move of servers (and change of URL) for the main TitanicShack page caused some of the dropoff.
