20,000 AND COUNTING!!

This is amazing - I understand Sploofus has been around for several years, yet membership passed the 10,000 mark only in March this year, and now, just 9 months later, we're past 20,000!!

Congratulations, Justin, this must be one of the fastest-growing sites around - and what a great Christmas present for you!!

Happy Christmas!!

I concur completely, I remember when I first joined and it has been fascinating to see the site grow so much.
2007 promises to be a sploofusing great year, who knows how many members will be here in one years time.

Thank you Justin

If you read this how about a competition open to all members?

On Jan 1st we all post to a special site guessing the mebership at 1 Jan 2008. Closest wins... oh i dont know how about 100K points? or a gold membership. You think of something.
At the current exponential rate of increase I would not be surprised to see 50K --would you?

I am fast approaching my year anniversary with Sploofus - I am a regular player here, and I can hardly imagine a day without playing on Sploofus.

Congratulations on 20,000!

And I concur - how about that guessing game - set that up! What a wonderful idea!

Congrats and happy holidays!

This sounds like fun!

It's on - the closest guess gets 3 Platinum memberships: one for themselves and two to give away!

How many active Sploofusers will there be at 12:00AM EST on 1st January, 2008? Only one vote in this thread per person, or you will be ineligible. Votes placed after January 1st, 2007 will be disqualified.

An extension of the birthday party game.....

No cheating now by picking someone else number..... (not that this would make sense in the context of the game) how long will it be before someone's random number coincides with someone elese's?

Probably the best way to tackle that problem would be to take the guesses already made, find the normal distribution they best approximate, and then solve the "birthday problem" based on that distribution. Piece of cake!

The precise solution is left as an exercise for the interested reader.

Wow there has been almost one thousand members added since this thread began. Way to go Justin. Lets see because my sister joined she brought with her myself, two other sisters her son, and one niece. I brought three friends, and one other niece, and always telling friends, and family about the site.

So if out of the 130 new member a day average only half of them invited one other person to join, the count could be way up there. 65 X 365 days a year is 23,725, and half of that 11,862, and half of that 5,931 and so on and so on. But if every new member every day invited a new member it would be 130 X 365 = 47,450 new members in a year. But that count could be easily doubled or tripled, So I am going off the chart and guessing:

327,525 members by year-end. Good luck all Rocco

No sooner have we discussed a population of 20K than there are 21000 members. My guess looks a little low for end year now!

Well said missashlee.

when i saw my name was missing it i thought it might have been because it was posted on the 1st but it does say only posts AFTER the 1st weren't allowed plus I noticed others on the list that posted theirs after the ones that are missing.

Probably just a wee mistake by the editors (proving they are human afterall, and i thought they possessed super human powers.lol)

Skillet66:

I learned long ago to keep up with the postings on all topics, especially Salty Dog. It seems this is an off-the-cuff contest, and if a year from now we are here to see the result, then all I can say is "wow"! I hope I am here then, that would be awesome!

Thank you, Sploofusker. I did not mean to sound panicked, it was more a "standing on the platform watching the train pull away" thing. Oh, I guess that is panic!

Take care,

Bump, bump

I just noticed that it was four weeks ago since the original post was made about reaching 20,000 players, and exactly 4 weeks later we are now on 24,000 players.

1,000 players a week, if that keeps up over the year that is impressive. Maybe the number per week will increase!!

In theory it is highly unlikely to maintain that average and logic dictates that it should increase even more.
I bet there are a lot of people who may well be thinking they should have guesse higher. lol
BUT then again you can never really tell what the future may hold.

To the folks putting guesses in now - obviously you're welcome to make your guesses, but you can't expect to be able to qualify for the prize - there's only less than two months to go to the end of the year now, those of us guessing back at the end of 2006 had to guess with the whole year still ahead, a much harder job!

If we're re-guessing now I'd say maybe 32,901 ... but that won't win me any tokens (but then nor will my guess from last year, either, it was much too high)!
