Wow, who would have thunk it!? The first Google forum on the entire internet, becomes the first to roll past 250,000 messages. The interesting thing, is there are several thousand more over in the Froogle, AdWords, AdSense, and Toolbar forums.

Thanks everyone, and ok - thanks Google - for such a "talk worthy" engine.

note: there are two other major milestones that may occur yet this week:

And at current count almost 0.5% of that is Bretts post number... so how many posts across all forums?

Alot of hard work by Brett, the Admins and the Google mods goes into making the Google News forum the number one resource for Google IMO :)

And thanks for such a "talk worthy" forum.

It isn't often that snippets from arcane (to most people) forums get picked up in the mainstream press. The rash of recent news articles concerning the "Florida" update illustrates the growing influence of WW on folks other than webmasters.

Yeah, Wow!

This shows the great value and richness of this forum!

A special thank you to all the moderators and senior members for having built this forum to what it is!

If you want to know everything about Google and insider-info on any Google changes (even, if it coughs), this is THE place to be.

And the spectrum of cultures and emotions must surpass any forum out there; Freud would have read every word. Your hard drive needs to be sent up with the next Voyager to help explain to the aliens what we're all about. :)

Bretts posts 12,563 so of 250,000 that's about 5% not .5%

Isn't 5% message/keyword density what he's been recommending all a long.

Nice of Google to provide such a talked about update (florida) to help get over 250,000 before year end.

Sorry Brett but I hope Google settles down, so there's not as much to talk about in the forum.

We've had run-ins from time to time - but WW is essential reading, and it isn't always appreciated that a huge amount of work goes into it behind the scenes.

that's enough brown nosing from me ;)

It will be nice to get a time-frame bar chart so that we can see the trend.

From a relatively new member (me), thanks to everyone who makes this work and be such an excellent resource. This is not only the place for accumulation but also for speculation and in many cases, information! I've learnt a lot here since May.

Regards,

Patrick

re: [webmasterworld.com...] - the 50K posts in the second largest open category made me thinking, we are all obsessed with G. This disparity in the number of posts aint healthy, as far as i see.

10/10 for the Google mods.

I usually call 1 of them up at strange times out of working hours (11pm Friday nite, or say 10am Sunday morning) to be greeted with:

"Hello Shak, yes I am here, only got another 300 posts to read before going home"

this person reads every single thread and post!

good work

At least once every couple of weeks over the last year or so, someone's asked me if I'm getting bored of forum3 yet.

The answer: Not one bit. There are always new idiscoveries and new ideas.

> Congrats to all of us.

Nicely put Yidaki.

"past 250,000 messages."

Do deleted posts count toward the total?

Prune a couple of those update threads and the total could be back below 30,000 in no time....

It doesn't seem that long ago when it was 100,000. Amazing.

Florida put it into overdrive for the last stretch. The reason for that is that when the sh*t hit the fan, and people needed to figure out what was going on, they renewed their expired memberships, or were told of, or found online, WebmasterWorld. Because this place is the best place to figure it out.

Respect, Brett.

Great point. The mods were masterful this time, and I'm sure many had to pitch in on the Supporters Forum as it was more of a refresh bonanza than Forum 3 at times.
