Aah ok, I was wondering because that seemed like an unusually long trip. At least it's not one of those LDS Mormon Church missionary trip where you are not allowes to use Internet for 2 years straight, though.

2 years without internet? thats hell on earth right there

DJ Omnimaga

Yeah. I personally would have an hard time without Internet for that long, plus it would suck for CW activity >.<

yeah you are the most active person on this website :p

DJ Omnimaga

Yeah, when I lost internet access in Feb 2007, Omnimaga went from 2000+ posts per month to 700 in just a month span. That said, when Dudeman313 went less active here a few weeks ago it did not impact activity that much (although perhaps it did nullify a potential increase).

thats alot of posts :o

DJ Omnimaga

Well 2K was pretty standard for a TI forum at the time, but if you mean the decrease, then yes it was drastic.

yeah, if you want to keep a community active you need to keep it active by being active too, youtube at first , no one uploaded, so the developers from youtube uploaded videos themselfes so people would do too.

DJ Omnimaga

Yeah, I noticed that most forums where one of the admins are not among the top posters don't last as long as others unless they have high traffic from newbies seeking for help, and even then it seems that fewer and fewer people ask for help if only those people ever post.

Update : i just finished email styling, i still need to make a automatic email sending script but the email itself is done.

DJ Omnimaga

What kind of e-mail will you send automatically?

when you register it will generate a link to activate your account, and also for password recoveries and stuff, we might setup a newsletter but you will have to sign up manually for that, but we dont know tho

DJ Omnimaga

Ah ok. For newsletter you might want to have a newsletter box checked by default on the register page that the user can uncheck, else some people tend to be annoyed if a site starts sending them newsletter without asking. :P (and some sites send them every 24 hour O.O)
