    AR Population increases

    I can't help but notice how fast this board is growning. In less than a year the population will have doubled I believe. I've watched this board develope for a year now and it's amazing.

    what will we do when there's so many people that are questions we post are sent straight to the bottom?

    a 2nd steroid section will only cycles questions or something like that?

    Im just curious on future plans of AR and how your going to handle population increases over the next while

    I like it over here because of the fact that it is small...You get to know the other people a little bit and the board doesn't move 100 mph...Elite has way too many people and the atmoshere (if there is such a thing on the net) sucks...

    I agree Ironfist. I like it small. We are growing fast. I just hope we don't get too big. I like this small board atmosphere that we've enjoyed here for so long.

    I agree about the whole "atmosphere" thing ironfist. Not dissing Elite, but things are just more civilized and welcomed here.
    Peace

    I also agree with just about everyone, that the intimacy of the smaller board is nice. You get to know the regulars better this way, and it seems that nicer people tend to like the smaller board since they don't have nasty or hurtful intentions, as is found on a bigger board where you can get lost in the shuffle easier after you have made a nasty post or two.

    Just my 2

    "AR, where everyone know's your user name"

    that is if you post. I can't believe how many people don't post on this board. Doesn't bother me though.

    btw - IronCy, Norm's an over weight drunk, not someone an AS user wants to be

    anyone been to the cheers bar in the detriot airport? that place didn't seem too friendly lol

    i love this board, i sometimes post on triedia and bolex, but i always come back to AR because it is more of a community where everybody is welcome. we are getting to the point were there are so many people on this board that the same questions are being asked over and over again. Oh BTW can i drink winny.

    Just to give you a run down on the population increase. (Yes, I keep up with it constantly )

    We started this board in August and we had 2,000 members in the last few days of December. Now, in just 3 months we have more than doubled that. So the board is growing faster and faster everyday. The good thing is, the board is still the same. The respect of the members here, as well as the rules have never changed. That IMO is more important than anything else. We will continue to grow because, well because AR is the best board around and everyone is starting to learn that.

    Now, dealing with the population size. Well here is the deal on that. If you take a look at the size of a message board, the biggest concern is moderating it. Making sure things are ok without some moderators going too far. If you notice, the mods all make sure the board follows the same rules. But if you also notice, the members here are just as good at catching scammers, flamers, etc..... So the mods and I have a lot of help. We have been occassionaly adding mods just to make sure we were covered as the population grows, and I am sure it will continue that way.

    So IMO, everything is going just great with the board. I am very happy with the way this board has progressed and I am anxiously awaiting the 10,000th member.

    This board is my home. I've "visited" others but non compare. Everyone here is mature, and cares about helping one another out, not making fun of each other. It's a big happy family. And we have a very knowledgeable gang of members. I hope it stay's this way. Mods, as well as members have done a great job in setting guidelines to follow, and keeping people in line.. let's keep a good thing going.

    SOLID

    I'm new and I'll defenitly be staying as long as I can. The board is friendly but I'm really impressed with all the knowledge available to newbies like myself. I know that I learn something new everytime I log on.

    This was the first and only board I've joined. I guess I got lucky picking the best right from the get go.

    I have no reason to even look around at other boards, I find everything I need right here.

    Gotta stick with my AR family.

    iron horse... We had a small message board that was a big o'l PIECE! LOL We opened it when the website was built. It was S L O W going. It is great to see people on here at all hours of the day. I will make sure that the board stays as tended to even if it get the size of elite. The problem with elite is that they didnt set ground rules right off the bat like we have. Once it gets out of control it is hard to get it back. Like Jason said... If the members help out and not put up with bull shit.... we will ALWAYs be on top of things. :-) Great thread that you started. Gets you thinking.

    I agree with Ironfist, i love the atmosphere. I love all the people on this board. There is always help here (sometimes a little flame ). Although in a way more is better, I hate it when my q's go unanswered! THANKS AR BOARD AND ALL MEMBERS FOR THE CONSTANT HELP YOU GIVE ME!!!!!!!!!!!

    thanks for reply mugs, I didn't think I was crazy.. but had to check that out.

    that board was something else. sometimes I'd check once a day and there would be no new posts!! information was limited and I didn't know a fraction of what I know now. It seemed like there was 5-10 people on that old board!! memories......

    definitly glad this board is up, it's literaly changed my life.

    thanks to all the great memebers

    This board is my favorite. I've checked out other boards, there is nothing like this board. We treat each other with respect regardless of age, we help out bros, and it's small so we get to know each other better. If im home, it's either im eating or on AR, or eating and on AR at the same time. MODS, VETS, and all the members are so helpful, it's unbelievable. I LOVE YOU ALL
