Can Pilot Nation Break Its Record?

Post by Stonehouse on Tue Aug 26, 2008 10:28 am

Believe it or not, this month of August is close to having the most posts for any month in the history of Pilot Nation. Currently, November 2007 is the high-water mark with 1082 posts... not surprising, considering that was the women's soccer playoff time and basketball was just getting started up.

But right now, we are at 830 (the second highest total ever), only 252 short of the mark. That's a tall order, especially with only six days left and Labor Day coming up, but with the huge games this weekend maybe we can get it done.

The challenge is on, Pilot Nation!

Post Script: Now I realize this is small potatoes compared to another WCC board that will remain unmentioned, but if this kind of activity keeps up we're definitely the #2 most active WCC board. Dons Central has more daily viewers, I think, but since it's a slow time for basketball there aren't a ton of posts. Heck, right now we are even close to outstripping the Zag board in terms of new posts, which is hard to believe. (Yeah, it's just because it's such a slow basketball time, but still... not too shabby!) Keep it up, everyone!

It should be noted that our little forum here has been around for a MUCH shorter period of time than those others, too... so we are doing well! And the average quality of our posts is pretty impressive.... not too much fluff (beer-related threads are not fluffy!) Cool

Keep up the hard work!! Oh, and everyone's homework assignment is to bring a new member on board... spread the word...

And to all the lurkers out there: Sign up as a member! Share your thoughts! bounce

Say, what's wrong with Soccer Buzz? They didn't put out pre-season rankings this year.

I was noticing the same thing about soccerbuzz... that was my main source for rankings and updates on out of region happenings previously.

UPreveler - welcome my friend!

Did you see the Oregon game? Either way your comments are appreciated. Also, what do you think of the upcoming week-end with UCLA and USC coming to town?

Only 23 more posts... Although I suppose this qualifies as padding the numbers...

So in order to rectify it, I will say that having sampled the micro brew selection from the Seattle area I must say the PDX has the flavor on lock down... SO much better than the crap up here... Must be that delicious Superfund flavor from the Willamette tongue

Somehow I think that this is the month for Pilot Nation to make a leap to the next level. seems like we have a new poster every few days... Although I find myself getting so detached from the threads because I don't check it often enough. Guess I will have to do my part to make the leap.

OK so I'm a huge nerd and was watching to see if it would make it pretty regularly, but it started tabulating for Septembers total at like noon on Sunday.... I'm pretty sure we would have made it...

Is that a hanging chad over there? Rolling Eyes

Yeah who is in charge of this operation?? Probably someone who promises to buy people a beer in exchange for touching a Coky jersey but then never ponying up on their half of the bargain... Razz

Oh, you didnt go there!! "Someone" is quite aware that they owe the originally agreed upon beer and a subsequent penalty beer... silent

The "forum time" is based upon where the server is, so the count resets when it is September 1st on top of Mt. Everest, or where ever the hardware is located. So "August" ended a little early, but started a little early, too.

Sooooo.... (to deflect the discussion away from beer I.O.U.'s), lets shoot for breaking the record in September, and lets try not to have to sweat it out on the morning of 9/30/08! Smile

Well, considering we've already got nearly as many posts in two days as we did in all of June 2008, I think we're well on our way.

Keep it up, everyone!

Isn't it amazing how far the forum has come even since the last playoff run... seems like we have several new regulars.

I will venture a guesstimate that the number of visitors on the board (those reading the forums who aren't signed up) has doubled in the past month or so... Please keep spreading the word!

And to all the new visitors: Please sign up, share your opinions and join the festivities! (We don't even send out junk e-mail or pester you!) Cool

PilotNut,

How many unique hits a day are you getting these days? I bet it is interesting to see the analytics pulling up hits from away schools right around the time of the matchups.
