Almost up to 1,500 members!

At the time of writing, we had just four more new members to go in order to reach the magic 1,500th milestone! In fact, if you include spammers and other deleted accounts, we're already up to 1,520

And around a quarter of the membership log in regularly, which is a much higher average than most sites.

So well done everyone!

Ian

So spammers do have some, albeit very limited, value!

Congratulations - it takes an enthusiastic and dedicated admin to run a site such as this and I'm pleased that us enthusiastic and dedicated Oly users have been able to hopefully provide some small measure of 'reward' for all the hard work!

Regards
Chris

Re: Almost up to 1,500 members!

Interestingly, the Olympus User forum claims to have over 1,300 members and that site is a lot newer, but they have only a total of under 900 posts and the e-group here produces that number of posts in a week to ten days.
