    I mention these stats from time to time, but I thought I'd post a rolling thread with the info.

    NOTE: This data is the average over the past 30 days of data.

    Here are stats for the last 30 days:

    Posts: 406,411 ( 2,360.6 growth/day )
    - Will reach 410,000 posts in 2 days (2008-03-19)
    Topics: 37,934 ( 186.0 growth/day )
    - Will reach 40,000 topics in 11 days (2008-03-28)
    Users: 7,460 ( 32.8 growth/day )
    - Will reach 8,000 users in 16 days (2008-04-02)


    On a related note: Anybody else surprised there are so many cool like minded people out there? I keep wondering if we'll hit a saturation point, where everyone with chickens will have already heard about BYC... and then 30 more people sign up!

    All you "guests" come join us! I want to see that daily number of new users hit 40 a day by mid April!!!

    I mentioned this site to a potential backyard chicken person just last weekend. She may buy some of my chicks next month and join in the madness!

    I'm not surprised there are so many people joining - this is a great place to learn and talk "chicken". What I am surprised about is the number of people who love chickens! Who would have thought????
