    Question SPF really busy

    Is it me or has SPF gone really busy.

    There's loads signed in and many more as guests. Any reasons why (besides being the best forum on the planet )?

    I noticed that too?

    Super loads of people...Though, the forums seems business as usual. Anyway we might beat the best total of users online from Nov 2004, (is that right?)

    Yep We've just crossed the milestone of 200,000 members yesterday and look how many new members have joined after that!!!!
    As for the reasons I am not sure... but probably the books read during summer had their effect

    I've noticed that as well. Many are going straight to the contests area

    Maybe sitepoint sent an email out to old users of the contests to create awareness about the contests beta.

    There is another very popular webmaster forum that seems to be losing traffic, and many have said they are not very well moderated or managed. Sitepoint was a breath of fresh air for me, and much more professional environment. I am proud to say I am a member here.

    Not so long ago we streamlined the new-account sign up process to reduce friction. I don't know if that had a direct impact, but it was certainly hoped it would

    I'd guess that the decline of .. one or two other competing .. forums has made a difference though.

    The reason why we're seeing so many users is that the session time outs have been increased from 30 minutes to 90 minutes at the request of a number of users:

    Ah right, but still I've been on (not lately) nearly a whole day and not seen as many on.

    Still, if the word has been getting out and have you been in the press, etc... then I'm not surprised the forum is getting busier. About time as it's nice to see new faces and I bet it makes it worth more the while for all the hard work everyone has contributed to SPF.

    Has this changed benefited Sitepoint in anyway? New users, right? But how many are actually active?
