Recommended Posts

Can we have a figue of the total number of downloads to date?

And do you know how many users that have signed up, have JUST used the download section?

This place is going to be HUGE!

Will be great!

Unfortunately I cannot determine how many people have signed up for just the downloads section, but it's obvious that the downloads section has increased the number of registrations by quite a bit (if you were here when I first started administrating, then you will realize how big the difference has become).

As for the total number of downloads, the number is 4757, but will probably be over 5000 by the time you read this.

Welcome to the forums, #10,000th registered and confirmed user nbokor!!!!

Wow, this truly is one of those days in my life that I will never forget- 10,000 users today. When I started in Feburary '04, there was about 2,000 members, and it had taken about a year for the forums to reach that mark - so effectively, since Feb '04, we've gained about 8000 members. I remember this place back when I started before I started to adminstrate it, and here, I'll show it to you:

Hilarious! Now what about the logos and themes? Oh my, those have changed too.

The one the webmaster had was a bit bland, but the very first logo for MDCF was:

Being the hipster I am, I came onto the scene and made it a little more stylish.

Unfortunately, that didn't last long as I had one of my friends make something that wasn't stolen from Sony art, and complimented the SubTrail theme that we carried for a long time.

The Sosumi theme followed next, with a slight variation on the above logo:

Unfortunately in December phpBB was no longer a suitable choice for the forums as employing such softwares was becoming counter-intuitive and caused massive downtime for most of the month. In January, the entire forums was converted to Invision, which you know of today. We went with the default theme for a while, but carried a familiar face:

---------

So, in retrospect, I want to thank each and every one of you who have been there since my beginning through all that lag, and those of you who have been there before my time. To those of you who have joined here in my time as Administrator, I hope that things have been satisfactory and I truly appreciate your patronage. It was a difficult journey to reach this point, but I feel that we have truly accomplished great things with this forum, espesically in communication with "big brother". I look forward to future development (and madness) with MDCF.

With the fall of the Minidisc T-Board and it's renaming to the Audio T-Station, the people have spoken their choice for where they wish to primarily discuss Minidisc, and to have this honor means alot to me - to have a niche in this world, to have that sort of impact. Thank you all.

i don't like the disproportionate amount of space the avatars & sigs take up at new tboard. not that it's too much of a stress as i like it here better.

Well done

I've been using MD since it started and am glad people are discovering it more and more --in spite of "Crappods" and Sony's best efforts to hobble the best use of the medium with D(readfully) R(ubbish) M(usic) crud.

Glad to see a place like this where intelligent discussion, and thoughtful answers are the norm and that it hasn't degenerated into a slanging match that you see so often over the Net.

Thanks

Active users are important, but the number of registered users is very important as well, it really shows how MD is gaining some steam.

To True!

Maybe we should have a new thread... with a Poll, asking members what MD unit they have.. like 1st gen and/or 2nd Gen... all that kinda stuff so we all get a kind of idea?

And we also have to make it onto this web site as well!

http://www.big-boards.com/ This site has the biggest forums on the net tongue.gif

I am a member of another forum which is no. 67 biggrin.gif Whirlpool forums.

Minidisc.org is yet to make an appearance sad.gif

Active users are indeed important; especially the content of their discussion. Anyhow, I reckon it is time we edit the title of this thread to "... has 12,000 registered users!" wink.gif

CONGRATULATIONS.

I've been using MD's from the very beginning. I admit that I have been obsessed with the format and I am SO frustrated that it isn't the standard recording media today. Anyway, when I got to this forum I saw that there were people like me around the world. Intelligent people who were informed of the media and were willing to and wanted to share their information with the rest of the people... Thank you so much administrators.. and congratulations!!!! Let's become number one!!!!!
