There was a total of 313 accounts when the old Discus BBS was turned into an archive Oct 1st, with the past 7 months being the most active in general usage, posting, and new membership.
This new board has taken off nicely I think. The first 30 days are past and as you pointed out, membership is already up to 200 with 1500+ posts and I have not had to create a single account.
There was a good international showing of members on the old BBS too, but without profiles and such like this forum has, it was harder to tell where people were from.
Thank you everyone!
