Default Congrats on the new attendance record!

Just a quick congrats to Bernhard on the forum once again, as the number of users ever online at one time hit a new record high on Friday February 20th and membership still seems to be growing. Thanks for having us! Peace.

I don't see an end to the trend. It's the biggest baddest drumming site in the solar system.

How Bernhard resists the temptation to keep it free is mind boggling.

That number changed quite rapidly as Bernhard and I banned about 73 people yesterday, all with the same name other than a number suffix, and about 15 of them were on line at one time.

Hmmm, makes you wonder what's their goal: do they just want to spam, annoy, mess up the database, cause DOS attacks, whatever?

Don't know Eric but it took a while to get rid of them all.

It's nice, but I won't/wouldn't pay for it.

Well if I had to, I'd pay for it. DW has helped make me a better drummer. It's fun, interesting and smart and all that gives it worth. Since the movie Whiplash, I'm afraid to say "good job" but hey you guys deserve that and so much more. So, thanks and congratulations on your latest accomplishment.

You are not alone in your issues with new users spam puke. We have experienced it at my own forum which is home theater/AV releated.

Our tech does a pretty good job keeping them banished, but he admitted it had been more difficult lately with a "surge" of sludge.

It's strange that this record has registered now because I've notice far less activity here over the past 6 months or so, than in any time since I joined in '09.

I use "today's posts" to follow the activity each day. I recall when there used to be three, four, sometimes even more pages of new posts each day. Now I'm lucky to see a page and a half. I would have been willing to bet the number of threads being posted in per day had more than halved over the last year or so. To find that the decrease in activity coincides with an increase in members online is very interesting. Anyone know why that would be the case?
