there are dozens of members from Germany. We have over 600 members who have posted something, at most a couple hundred "regular" posters and a bunch who come by every once in a while. And a bunch of spam members that haven't been deleted because it is so time consuming.
But aside from Oregon, Germany is the top spot for our members. Texas is another place with lots of members. Toronto and Pittsburgh seem to be popular among our members as well.
We have members meet up all the time on travels, vacations, business trips, etc. It's really great! And we're a new forum, only 1 3/4 years old.
If you have friends who'd like to be part of a community like this, please encourage them to come on by.
I'd be willing to waste time cleaning up the memberlist...although you probably have to be an admin for that, better suited for you if that's the case...
Yeah, it just takes time and I'll continue to work on filtering so we'll get less of them. But they hardly ever post anything at all, so they don't get in the way too much.
loveliberate is an Admin now and he specifically wanted to get rid of spam members so he'll start soon. He's just been super busy lately, but together we'll tackle it bit by bit.
We are growing with new real members all the time, which is awesome. I'm really pleased to see people finding information, inspiration and making new friends here.
