    Default We Finally Reached 50,000 Members!

    I've been watching the stats but hadn't noticed that just over the past 3 - 4 days we've had over 100 new members sign on That fall surge moved our registered user number to 50, 080.

    I believe that we are the largest forum in North America. It's great to be here seeing this happen, let's keep the numbers rising, tell a friend

    It's great to see the increase in members. What I don't understand is the huge number of visitors who don't join.

    The forum has sonething for anyone who fly fishes.

    Seems like standing outside an ice cream store on a hot summers day, watching them give away free ice cream cones, but not going in to get one !

    Take the next step, guests. Open the door, come on in, and choose your flavor. It's all good, and it's all free.

    When you think about it, the visitors are joining. little by little they find that in order to access certain aspects of the forums you must be a registered user. We have a huge number of registered users who choose not to post also. That's fine, not everyone is an internet extrovert but one by one people come out onto the various sub forums and make a first post.

    Visitors or members, everyone is welcome.

    That's a great milestone, congratulations all! I'm not really surprised though. 50,000 members testament as to how well this forum is run and to the quality of membership. This is truly one of the best places on the internet.

    Congrats on the 50,000. I am honored to be a part of that number.I have been a part of other forums, woodworking and woodcarving but i have to say that this one is by far the best one. In the short while that I have been a member I have learned a lot, thanks to the membership. I even got a long distance call from a valued member to help me out with an issue I was having. WOW, That is something that I will not forget. Thanks.

    Ard,

    It appears from reading threads, posts etc that many of the new members
    are young, the future of the Forum and Fly fishing. A good thing.

    Any number of how many "old" members are inactive?
