Hey we just hit it - thanks to...oh, rats, the Googlebot. Closest user on either side was the same W - The King of Keith, reading two pages of the same thread. He hit 68999998 and 69000001 doing that.

Our current Quantcast rating as I type this: 138,861

It looks like I should have sexed up our URLs MONTHS ago. Google's definitely gotten more interested in us over the past week. Twitter is also helping drive visitors (but, alas, not registrations...what else is new) and I'm predicting good things to continue for us if I can just continue to keep from deleting half the board with rogue database alterations.

We may also have inflated bot/spider traffic with the thread URL changes, too, so I won't get too excited until I see where we stand after the next (DEKA)megaclick. Come back in July!

[ I keep meaning to say more about the recent changes I've made but if you follow our referrals at all, you may have noticed that "new" threads now seem to get more interest earlier. Not necessarily REPLIES, but people DO read what you write. So don't stop! (Although, with a whole lotta TV shows in reruns, there'll be less "new" stuff to write ABOUT. Oh, it's always something) ]

Not really...I think you can count on one hand the number of new users who sign up here each month. :)

E3 is in June at least, and with at the very least Nintendo confirmed to make a megaton announcement there should be some action in the Video Games section.

No, I'm not sure how you got that link. It looks like it was adding to the current url rather than returning to the root of the site. I'll have to see if I can recreate that later.
