Thread: 250,000 posts at ZHPMafia.com

    250,000 posts at ZHPMafia.com

    We will reach this number imminently. Indeed, it will happen sometime during the morning hours tomorrow.

    Wanted to thank everyone for their contributions thus far. The site would not be what it is without all of you. You've bought into the Mafia lifestyle and it brings a smile to my face.

    We're proof that a no-drama, friendly, professional forum can exist during the 21st century.

    I thought we could do it. Thanks for proving me right.

    Meanwhile, a big thanks to Dane and Keith, both of whom make this site hum along on a daily basis.

    Thanks for being my co-bosses in this endeavor.

    I don't hold it against them that they said it could not be done. Even my friends thought I was crazy for building a site that celebrated a single package on the 3 series platform. I probably would have said the same thing if I had been asked for my opinion (and wasn't the one launching the site).

    I knew it would succeed, though, because I saw the ZHP Mafia name in too many places around the various fora.

    I, for one, am bitten hard by the bug of this particular option package and the great folks that tend to migrate to it. As the owner of 2 previous and 3 current ZHPs, not planning to leave for a long time.

    P.S., does anyone remember when Dane and I consisted of 40% of the posts at ZHPMafia.com? I remember saying that there would be a day when we probably wouldn't consist of 10%. We're heading that way now. We now consist of 16% of the posts at the forum.

    By the way, growth has slowed at the forum. It took us 22 months to reach 200,000 posts. That's about 9,100 posts a month.

    It took us nearly 7 months to reach 250,000 posts from 200,000 posts. That's an average of about 7,150 posts a month.

    Simply put, we're not as active as we used to be. We're still doing just fine but it's a metric that I watch nonetheless.

    I attribute that rate per month drop to quality over quantity plus we've stickied some of the important threads so we don't rehash the same topics. All good, fantastic place to hang out.

    Definitely some reasons for it. But still something I look at and evaluate every 50,000 posts. If we get to half the rate we're at now, I will have to incentivize people to get more active by raffling off DW's ZHP. Or Rando's. Whatever it takes.
