Is Interference the biggest forum online?

I see other forums crapping themselves over having almost 3000 members. We've got over 18,000. Sure, not all of them are active, but 18,000's nothing to sneeze at.

If we're not the biggest, who is?

Some of the pregnancy forums are really huge. Pregnancy.org =
"We have 125674 registered users so far."

Mind you some of the big forums are seriously USA biased to the point they are not at all welcoming to people from 'elsewhere'.

I like little ole Interference. I can build up a mental picture of the people who post as I often bump into the same posters - which is kewl.

I'm pretty sure the Foo board is at/over around 30,000.
They gargle broken glass for breakfast.
Nutters.

It's not the size that matters , it's the tightness of community.

you have a dirty mind,

edited: I meant, tightness as in tightknitted community

people's minds are always in the gutter... taking anything Freudian, when they don't know much about Freud and refused to be psychoanalyzed.

I think the biggest forums are the "computer" and "gaming" forums. Someone had a link (yertle?) where it listed the biggest forums (by posting volume and members) and Interf wasn't even in the top 50.

Rank Board name and description Posts Members
1 FaceTheJury 79032200 552000
Real life picture rating forums

edit: Interference is not on the list of all forums, but if it was it would be #349 based on # of members.
BTW, a Linkin Park forum is #20 (with 200,000+ members)
Based on the # of posts Interference would be #325. So it seems as if the members here have average posting habits.

C ya!

Marty
