A few minutes ago, the main stats counter on the forum read "127002". That means 369 people have visited since midnight last night (BST) which equals our all-time record (set on 8th April this year). I will report again at midnight tonight!
I somehow managed to compare the current figure with that of two nights ago - not last night's. :-[
No records were broken after all but it was fun just the same. I am now going to hide away in embarrassment!
Don't go too far away...I'm sure that a new daily record will be achieved shortly.
BTW, I viewed the first post of this thread. I encourage everyone else to do the same. I'll echo Keith's words. Thanks to everyone for their continued support ,only to the forum, but to Hayley as well.
Okay, so I got it wrong. But I knew I was wrong so I was right to say I was wrong. Right?

Well, it's out to the woodshed with Roger! i21.photobucket.com/albums/b294/hdjoespics/EEjdKsU.gif We are deducting 1,000 posts from Roger's 4,482. He nets out at 3,482! However, since he was very honest and was right to say he was wrong when he thought he was right, but was wrong instead, he has been granted his 1,000 posts back! It's 4,482 and counting! However, he will be wearing an electronic sensor in an ankle bracelet and will be confined to his home for the next 2 weeks. Hayley herself will unlock the ankle bracelet when it's time. I think this will be worth the 2 week house confinement! i21.photobucket.com/albums/b294/hdjoespics/EEjdKsU.gif
I always check the number of members when I log on, and I've been watching the number gradually climb, urging it towards 200. The increase in new members has taken off phenomenally over the last year.
It's one of the reasons I moved over to broadband - I just couldn't keep up by using dial-up! and if someone had told me that I would be one of the 'top ten' posters in just over a year, I would have laughed, but the there's so much activity and so much positivity, logging on is almost like talking to a member of the family!
I had never had anything to do with forums of any kind up to the point I joined this one, but the friendships that develop through it are, to my mind, what brings it alive and what keeps us all together as a 'family'. Hayley's extended family.
So I add my heartfelt thanks to our splendid management team, whose seeming tireless efforts, make this such an amazing place for Hayley's "Guys" to 'hang out'.
