Labor is free. (So far ) (Unless he bills himself.)

Re: This Forum Is A Living Breathing Growing Life Forum

It's a bit hard to answer precisely, because of the way the costs are incurred -- sort of like estimating the costs of using an otherwise empty room in your house.

But the realistic costs are probably in the ballpark of $100/month.

The getting started costs are a lot lower than that, as someone can start a new forum without anywhere near the need for disk space and bandwidth that we use, and could opt not to do on- and off-site backups nightly.

Re: This Forum Is A Living Breathing Growing Life Forum

There are currently 3045 members - 1100 more than this time last year - I suspect that some members have used more than one identity (for those that might want to purge their past how do those folks put the past behind them?)

What caught my eye is that there are currently 33 members signed on and 168 180 189 guests browsing!!! That's a lot more guests than I've ever seen before...

Has someone been talking to the press

I'll bet some of those guests are members who, like me, sometimes browse before logging in.

Re: This Forum Is A Living Breathing Growing Life Forum

Wow, we broke the "most online" number on a Saturday? That's highly unusual. I wonder if we got linked from somewhere somewhat prominent?

Oh, I know what it is...it's those database improvements I made this morning that are attracting new users.

There are a few users who have been reborn as new identities and at least one who is a serial new-account-er. We haven't been bugging them unless they start playing two identities at once. But the number of new accounts due to this is pretty small...probably less than 10 over the past year.
