It's just occurred to me that at some point on Friday this site will reach 50,000 members. Not too shabby
Activity seems to have slowed down a lot on the site though, judging by the content of the list of new posts which used to be totally different every day. Now more than half of the first page of them aren't new. I think part of the problem is that the software doesn't call you back to threads that people have commented after you, and there's no easy way to find those threads again, so you simply never check. That leads to you taking part less and less over time, so most of the members probably don't even look in now.
