MSX forum: well over 250.000 posts!

Topic: MRC
Tags: Milestones

It's been a while since be reported about an MRC milestone, even though we passed quite a big one recently: Our MSX forum now contains more than 250.000 posts. Much more, in fact, as we've already reached 253.294 posts in 19.434 topics - averaging more than 50 posts per day for more than 13 years already, not including the many comments to our more than 6.800 MSX news posts.

With 381 pages and counting, the most active forum topic is without a doubt the one on the SymbOS MSX multitasking OS that has reached amazing heights since it's first post a little more than 10 years ago. But also more recent topic, such as flyguille's development thread in which he kept us informed on the development of Super Castle and his generic devkit for platform games is currently 75 pages long.

Humbling numbers, really... three cheers to anyone who ever posted in our forum. Next stop: 300,000!

Well, it's been quite a while since we celebrated a milestone & I'm not in the mood to run queries/analytics, so I'll stick to the data gathered from news posts. It seems we averaged 19.000 posts per year since 2003. In 2004-2005 we were a bit more active (topping 26.000), in the beginning and in 2007-2008 we had a low at ~16.000. The past years that has been increasing again to an average of 20.000.

Congrats and everyone who contributes Smile I think it's quite nice we all keep MSX alive and still have so much to say about our beloved computer system. For me it has become second nature to start the day with looking at this site and I think I'm not the only one Smile Thumbs up and let go for the 300.000!

Well, maybe if they stop removing posts out of nowhere, we could easily boost that number.
My 'Hackathon' post for instance. I'm still waiting for a reasonable explanation.
