New Record: TUESDAY 27 NOVEMBER AT 16:00 *new date

Unread postby Imberbe » Mon Oct 29, 2007 11:35 pm

There is one statistic on this website that really bothers me! It is the little note at the bottom of the index page which indicates:

Most users ever on-line was 199 on Sat Dec 10, 2005 2:47 pm

What happened in the past two years? Cant we better 199? :evil:

I propose we smash that record!

Lets all log-on on 1 December at 18:00 (S.A. time) and smash that record! (* Edit - Please note - This time has been changed to Tuesday 27th of November at 16:00)

Please support this effort by indicating your support in your signature.

Something like:

FORUM RECORD DAY: SAT. 1 DECEMBER 18:00 LOG-ON!
(* Edit - FORUM RECORD DAY: TUE 27 NOVEMBER 16:00 LOG-ON! )

So let's all join together, and have an international virtual meet! :dance:

p.s. Remember something to eat!

I know the time and date won't be convenient to all, so apologies to those who can't.



SEE PAGE 6 FOR IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!

Exciting news!

SANParks has contacted me. As a token of their appreciation of our support, they have kindly donated a USB pen set as a prize!

How can you get this wonderful prize? Easy!

We are running a little competition to see who can make the best prediction on the result of our record breaking attempt on Saturday 1 December at 18:00. (* Edit - Tuesday 27 November at 16:00)

Simply guess how many people will be on the Forum at exactly 18:00 on 1 December 2007! (* Edit - 16:00 on 27th of November)

The rules:

1. Make your guess on this thread before Saturday 1 December 2007 at 17:30 S.A. time. (No later guesses will be taken in to account!) (* Edit - Tuesday 27 November at 15:30)

2. The person who guessed closest to the actual number of people on the Forum at 18:00 (* Edit - 16:00), will win the prize. (It may be more or less.)

3. In case of two or more persons being equally close to the correct number, the person who placed his / her guess the earliest will win the prize. (So place your guess NOW!)

4. The exact number will be decided by Admin and is not open for discussion. I will appoint the winner. No correspondence will be taken regarding the judges decision! I reserve the right to change the rules! (Now that is power! Twisted Evil )

5. Everyone must have fun while on-line at that time!

6. Only one guess per person.

7. A guess on an edited posting will be discarded.

But wait!

That is not all!

We have decided to throw in a SANParks cap as well! The proud winner will have something to wear while working on his / her computer!

So let the guessing begin!

And remember: Be on the Forum at 18:00 on Saturday 1 December (* Edit - 16:00 on Tue 27 November) for our record breaking international virtual meet!

Cool idea, Imberbe! 8) I'll be in KNP, but I reckon I can make it via PDA. :D
