Members: 1087
Posts: 18181 (10065 from BASS, 7920 from XMPlay, 195 from MO3)

Well, this marks the third year anniversary of the Un4seen Developments Forum.  It's time to reflect on the past year and everything that has happened.  At this time last year, the latest version of XMPlay was 2.7, and the latest version of BASS was 1.8.  Obviously they have had some really nice improvements in the past year.  A big thanks goes out to Ian for continuing to improve these already great products!  As well, I'd like to thank everyone here, because this truly is a really great community.  In total we're up to nearly 20 000 posts (Ian alone has about 15% of those)!  Here is a list of the current most active 15 posters:

In this forum's first year, we picked up 230 members.  In the second year, another 428 members joined.  And in the previous year, we welcomed an additional 429 members.  So my prediction last year (800 new members) was a bit high...  But it was still a great year!  I can only imagine what improvements will be added into the Un4seen Developments in the next year!  Once again, here's to the future! :)

Wow, nice statistics :)
I didn't know I'm one of the top 15 posters... Interesting. ;)

I'm going to have more time for new skins once I finish this studying year. Expect something BIG... ;D

(for reference, last year's results)

Hmm... since then I've move from 8th to 5th, having beaten XMinioNX, Zarggg (formerly known as first alphastar00 and then Alpha) and Keltic Danor (formerly known as KelticDanor) in the "posting madness" stakes. Time to move further up the ladder!

A few more stats (old position, posts per month and posts per day at 2 and then 3 years) (why? because I can!):

Ian @ un4seen
1, 70.9 -> 75.3, 2.33 -> 2.47 (you're busy!)
Ralesk
3, 19.8 -> 17.5, 0.65 -> 0.58
Pike84 (formerly Kynes)
5, 12.1 -> 18.97, 0.39 -> 0.62
Olego
2, 20.0 -> 15.33, 0.66 -> 0.50
Boggy B
8, 32.5 -> 26.7, 1.06 -> 0.87
(couldn't be bothered to do all 15 so the top 5 will have to do)

There's only been a little change at the top, but there are some suprises. DanaPaul's only been here for about a year and has managed to do 324 posts in that time (almost daily). If he'd been here since the start he'd probably have about 1000 posts here. Full stats here.

Long live XMPlay!  8)

Sooo.. an anniversary thread was nimbly turned into a posting competition thread... or perhaps it was like that from the beginning :P.

Well, it's nice to know XMPlay has gotten lots of new users. I'm sure there'll be a bigger growth next year, as the player is still getting better and better. Also remember, there are lots of users that haven't signed themselves to the forum (many of my friends for example). Go, XMPlay :)!

Postcount pissing contest aside, I cant believe this thing's only been up for three years. I dunno, it feels like longer. The occasional angry noob or insulting snobs notwithstanding, this place has been pretty calm and civilized - even when Tso gets upset ;D it's still nowhere near as flamey as most places.

Congrats? Hmm. Yeah!

Congrats everybody!
