I would really be interested in knowing how this forum was started and the founding memebers. Is it possible to have a section that details the history? As well as how many memebers are registered here?
Could Rhaya come up with a brief history of the forum? I also wonder how many members there are now.
I DO remember that a few years ago she was thinking about discontinuing the site, can't remember if it was a time or money issue. It was a VERY traumatic few weeks until she was able to figure out a way to 'keep' us!
My stats are:
Member #: 733
Registered on: 08/17/01 03:00 PM
So know the forum is older than that (and with 732 older members).
I'm member #4004, registered on 12/27/03. I know that in the beginning I had a much higher member number - something like 7, 8, or 9 thousand something. I think they trimmed the membership list a few years back.
I remember at least once when quite a few members were dropped from the list because they were not active in a long time. At that time there were over 10,000 members and it didn't take long to build back up.
I'm going to start this as a single place to address issues with the recent forum changes. Please don't make this a discussion. Just drop your questions/issues here for the admins to find in an organized way so they might be able to answer our concerns with the dramatic changes recently.

In the release notes, I saw something about bookmarking discussions. I can see how to list my bookmarked threads, but I can see how to make a discussion as bookmarked. I want to make threads like the one on recommend books for future reference.
