When did you start your website?

Post by AmigoJack » Mon Nov 27, 2017 10:29 am

Start: 2008-11-06
Members: 420 active, 304 banned (thru violating rules or having multiple accounts) and 2354 pruned (inactivity)
Visitors: at average 24250 guests, 150 members and 260 bots per day

Edit: I was not the topic starter - the starter's text was simply "How many unique members do you have and visitors?" which I answered precisely - not more, not less.

Back in the phpBB2 days, I think it was v2.0.6!

January 11, 2004 - Total posts 106254 • Total topics 4612 • Total members 2719

I think a few of those user accounts might be spam bots! As I think a lot of sites experienced, those mid-2000s days were great times but thereafter the prevalence of social media sites did move into that space that forums consumed which affected activity.

When did you start your website?
My actual website? around 1995-96 on my isp's 5 mgb web space they gave away, my domain registered 1999-10-12 and as KYPREO did I started on the EzBoard around 2002 but it quickly got out of hand so installed my first phpbb board in Nov 2003

May of 2014. A little over 220,000 posts and almost 17,000 topics. Almost 6,000 members (but that includes a bunch of non-active members or bots, I don't know) and we get at least 50,000 unique visitors and 500,000 pageviews per month, although those numbers look to be closer to 60,000 and 600,000 lately.

Thank you, phpBB!!!

I started sponsorchat.com on October 4th 2004 and this February 1st had a crazy idea to relaunch it on a new domain I had bought, removed and went with phpBB instead of the VBulletin I was using for 14 years on the old site.

I really like phpBB and the fast support here, I had over 72,000 users on the old forum and they are slowly coming back to this new one. It's basically an webmaster B2B forum.

Peace

2005 first website and phpbb forum. It was great time to have active phpbb forum for a years. First website is down now, but database is in a save place. Every year new plans to reopen forum :)
Still many other new websites and platforms opened since 2005.
