Wow, how time flies.  You're correct, our first announcement about the forum availability was 26-Jun-2006.   We've just passed 12,000 registrations last month.  Thanks to all who make it a great place for weather enthusiasts to discuss our mutual hobby (affliction?) :)

I thought it might be interesting to see the stats on the first 50 users to join wxforum.net

Some very familiar names in the first 50 list and many of those were extremely helpful and kind when I first got my station in 2008 and then when I ventured with uploading and website =D>

Also nice to see that while some may not be very active anymore they still do visit the forum.

Thank you Ken and the others that decided to salvage and then grow this great place for information, friendship, and some fun times...
Enjoy,
Paul

Yes, but how exactly does it calculate it. Because I also use the "log me in forever" feature, so these people need to have some activity every 10 minutes, because AFAIK Ken set the online/offline timeout to 10 minutes

DanS time is because he is flying Mark/Ohio's super-dooper lightning speed shuttle and crosses the international date line 24 times a day adding to his count ;)
