I thought DWM must be much older. It feels like being 17 years old. :sage:

Many thanks to Paul, David and all those who've worked hard to make vibrant Dharma places on the internet. :bow: :bow: :bow:


Might be also a fitting time to reflect on what is and is not working but that is probably better in another thread.

That's because you were a moderator for several years. When you're a moderator, it appears to be longer. :tongue:

Unbelievable! This is exactly what I need for my own legs. I can't fathom how I've never seen it before.

Thank You, from the bottom of my heart.

They say its all in the subjective experience... I suppose at some level we are masochists and moderating is indeed... fun.

A good stat for seeing the success of a forum is Active topics. However, that is typically measured over the last 7 days, so doesn't give a long-term picture. I've seen active topics over the last 7 days fluctuate from a low of around 40 to a high of 120+ here at this forum and others.

Total members can get inflated, especially if admins, moderators don't remove spammers from the list. So the best stat in my opinion is the total number of posts over the history of the site.

As far as I know, no Buddhist forum has had over one million posts, except for e-sangha which was the only forum with a good forum software similar to this one at that time. The other forums at that time were all on google or yahoo, or other bad formats. E-sangha died about 10 years ago.

In the video in the OP I mentioned how we were nearing one million posts. We were about 59,000 posts short of that about 7 months ago . . . . until now! And this happened only about 3 days after Asalha Puja Day, which commemorates the Buddha's first teaching, the first turning of . . . . .
THE DHARMA WHEEL!
