It’s probably nothing new to some of you who participate on the FB group every day, but I came across a message from Jenn the other day on the wall, basically telling everyone that the community has reached another enormous milestone just this past month: we’ve reached and exceeded a total membership of 1500 people!
“1,500 members have stuck around for the random updates, massive amounts of trigger videos, occasional debates, and speculative polls. I'm so lucky to have found other people who experience the same thing I do. Thanks to everyone who has shared something here, or just been part of the group. Thanks to all the new members, and thanks to Damien McKenna, the first member I clicked 'Add' for (wonder if anybody else would have joined if the member list was 1). Thanks for more things than I'll blabber about here.”
I tweeted about this news earlier on in the week, but pushed the announcement here on the blog back a few days in favour of bringing the other perhaps more crucial matter of subdomains to your attention. Jenn was even kind enough to give me a mention too, in the comments below the post – that I was chuffed to see, especially after all I’ve done for you people! :)
“Oh, also, I'd be a jerk if I didn't mention the research team. Those guys have put a lot of work into everything, including building the community. I'd actually say they've done more work than me in the long run, esp. Andrew, who is always keeping things updated and blogging, writing articles, being on the forum. But I'll bask in my share of appreciation anyway, thanks, hehe.”
Sorry that this post mainly consists of quoted text. But I don’t think I could have put it any better anyway. Yeah, that’s it. :)
