Fantastic news Bernhard. Thank you so much for your continued work & commitment :)

One thing though, what do the numbers indicate on the graph - are they not the reverse of the situation described? Am I having a statistical brain fart?

I think the numbers are position. 1 being the best, so the forum is 50,000

I am a regular on just a few internet forums and I've been members of all of them for a really long time. I just do not add internet forums to my daily routine. Except Drummerworld. It's the only forum I contribute to regularly that I joined less than 10 years ago. And that is the highest compliment I can pay a forum. Drummerworld has been a major factor in restoring my commitment to the instrument and in my improvement as a player.

Congratulations!

Sorry, it's the website drummerworld.com - the forum is NOT in the stats. Of course if you put them together, the ranking would be even higher...

I believe the numbers are the "global rankings" of all internet sites so comparatively Drummerworld.com rules and ranks much higher than competitors.
I thought the members had exceeded 100K awhile back-awesome. Even globally against all other sites (not just drum related) it's standing is impressive if you think about it. Against Google, Facebook, etc which have far more applications and rank 1 and 2 it's 50,000th.

That is impressive considering all the really popular websites, not to mention all the porn sites lol.

I like it when you can be 50,000th and still be considered good lol. My kind of race.

I'm a "noob" here but have been on many forums full of jerks and a$$holes. None of those here just direct and honest answers, the way it should be.

The Drum Clinic is priceless and I hope that one day I can contribute more to the forums than "What's this?".

Thanks,
Dennis

I agree, every drumming forum I've registered on, except this one has been a crap experience.

It's actually been number one since like 2008. I started the Drummerworld Wikipedia article (yeah altruistic fool that I am use to write science articles but then started the article for a change- although Bernhard really contributed a lot to be fair) and looked at Alexa.com, Googleanalytics.com and Beesker.com, it was the number one ranked website for drummers and percussionists then too. I always tell young drummers to check it out and learn. It's a virtual encyclopedia of drummers and drumming-a cornucopia -a plethora of cool stuff that all drummers will really dig. It's a great site and great community of drummers too within the forum. But Bernhard is the man-years of dedication and sacrifice-he should be given some award. Let's all give him a standing ovation and clap for a good ten minutes or so till your hands bleed like in Whiplash LOL.

That's probably because it's an independent web, I think. I read some articles in Modern Drumer and watch videos on Vic Firth's page, but they have a commercial purpose. It's not bad, but most drummers prefer impartial information from real people.
And if there's a new interesting article in one of these webs, someone will post here ;)

PD: Vic Firth / MD lessons sometimes are great, by the way.

Congrats and thanks for such a great site.

We should throw a party with a band and everything. Now, where to find a drummer?

This is also one of the few places I frequent when work isn't coming out of my ears (alongside violinist.com) though I don't post very often. I do not have a facebook account, my "social networks" are specific forums of interest.

This forum is a nice place to be and always cheers me up :-)

Congrats on the impressive ranking, it's well deserved. This is really hands down the best site for drummers and the discussion forum's fantastic as well - I have no idea how you manage to keep it from stooping down to the level of most internet forums (the ones I know of anyway).

Congrats! Amazing forum!
Best community too.

I've pretty much left all other forums because of how they treat people, and look down on other people's views and opinions. I've even been harassed by moderators for enjoying cheaper instruments *cough cough* ultimate guitar*

Drummerworld is like a very extensive family to me. Even if I mostly just read through everything.
