LinuxQuestions.org Hits One Million Threads


I'm proud to announce that we just we crossed the 1,000,000 thread threshold here at LQ (we just recently hit five million posts as well). As mentioned in the linked thread while it's a completely arbitrary milestone, it's a reminder that LQ has grown far beyond my initial expectations. I'd like to once again thank each and every LQ member; the site wouldn't exist without you. I'd also like to give a special thanks to all mods, both past and present; it would have been absolutely impossible for the site to grow as it has without the dedication of the mod team.

A couple stats:

One Millionth Thread: This one!
Thread with the most views(1,069,844): "Learn the DD command" http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ommand-362506/
Thread with the most replies (5,101): "What programs would you like to see ported to Linux?" http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-linux-105955/
Record active online members: 7,909

Just curious - What is "active member" defined as? Seems a very small number to me relative to number of registered members.

"Currently Active" is the number of simultaneous members logged in during any 900 second duration.

Congratulations, well deserved

Even though it's an arbitrary milestone, it symbolizes the reason I joined. Very useful site.

It's the total number of threads/posts.

Congratulations to Jeremy and all Moderators. That is some accomplishment.

Hmm, now how many of those 1 million posts are Slackware related. I had to.
