    A huge month of activity for APUG!

    For those interested we broke 700 registrations this month, that is over 100 more than last month. We've just had two of our biggest months to date. It is very exciting to see so much interest in our craft. Thanks to all involved in making APUG a great place to be!

    cool...

    is this stuff the forum software gives you, or you remember as you have a natural interest in it ?

    ... or perhaps even you code your own scripts to pull these stats from the database ?

    Nick, I think most website software has a 'Stats' section where site owners can keep track of the various aspects of site usage. I belong to another website where this information is available for all to view as bar graphs through a 'More Stats' link. Stats such as Top Ten Posters, Registrations Per Day, Top Ten Threads (by posts), Top Ten Threads (by views), Top Ten Thread Starters etc. etc. Personally I think they are a bad thing to have on public view because it can get silly if people decide to compete.

    Congrats on the continuing success of APUG Sean!

    I've seen a few forums like that ... I agree, still tho I'm interested - always been a bit of a 'watcher' - but I'll make do with APUG as is for now (; (excellent, that is)

    Thanks for making this all possible. The stats are exciting and very interesing, but they wouldn't be if you hadn't made this possible.

    Thank you,

    A great site! No wonder it is taking off. I'm a newbie here but an "oldie" in the darkroom. Lots of intelligent people here with lots of knowledge. I could spend hours in the galleries....

    Well Done From ILFORD / HARMAN + A Little Idea

    Dear Sean,

    This has been a very interesting few months for me since joining APUG and I have to say I am looking forward to the conference very much, and delighted to see how APUG is growing.

    I was actually not that amazed that the postcard thread was the most replied to....you should see the ( now new and larger ) pinboard in my office and also our specialist paper finishing department has just finished three weeks manufacturing our Postcard Paper and it should be shipping around the World and in the stores in a few weeks....

    So by way of a 'thank you' to all, if its OK with you, I will meet up with you in Toronto and decide on a prize and ILFORD Photo / HARMAN technology Limited will sponsor a competition for APUGgers and postcards in summer 2006, I quite like the idea of a prize of paying travel and expenses for an Apugger to visit the next conference...perhaps its only a postcard away....?

    Regards

    Simon ILFORD Photo / HARMAN technology Limited :
