Yep, you heard well. This afternoon the Macuarium CoP system gathered its two-millionth message :-). This is being a very significant month (and there’s more news coming).
Still, I’m not especially impressed by the number of posts. It’s not an essential metric. We do have a high participation rate and all that, much higher than average… but what I’m rather proud of is the “signal-to-noise” ratio. We’ve reached that milestone while beating the drum of “use your searches, no repeat threads” and the “keep offtopics off the topics”. We have one of the most to-the-point, moderated methodologies out there.
And it’s worked well enough to fuel continuous, increasing message and membership growth. Up to two million messages, and beyond :-). All of them, all those stories and solutions, available online.
Did I say I’m immensely proud of our team? And our members, too.
