As is customary and traditional, we celebrate every new 1,000 members here and share the traffic stats. We're now at more than 19,000 registered members. We had another month of more than a million page views. It just took us six weeks to get this latest 1,000 members--we're averaging about one new member per hour.


Thanks as always to all the community members who make this growth possible, and especially the moderators who approve membership applications and blog posts and otherwise answer questions and keep things ticking here. We've got about 40 moderators now, but if anyone would like to join this group, please PM me. If you've been here for a while and have been participating, you'll fit in great.


Next stop: 20,000!

That looks like the barometer graph...

I am confident it has been exponential. :-)

Thats great!


But I'm worried that the site will have a difficult time handling too many more members as it seems *really* slow most of the time. Especially the online store, if its like that for other people I'm surprised any orders can be placed at all, I know I've all but given up...


I'm located in western Canada with a 25mbit connection and am only 10 hops (40ms) away from the server, so I don't think the internet is the problem. 


As I write this I have another blog post still waiting to load in a separate tab... Still waiting... Still waiting... Given up and refreshed manually... Still waiting... Still waiting... Finally! :(
