Today our 50,000th member joined. Please welcome KJB who joined today!

We have been running a contest to see who could come closest to guessing the time and date of this auspicious event and I'm pleased to report that Loco Gato is our winner with a guess of March 21,2011 0627 gmt. Thanks to all who participated and to everyone for making Cruisers Forum an amazing community.

I'll bet they never thought someone else would win a prize when they joined. Ok, when we get near 100,000 come on back early and the prize will be way better. I'm hoping for beer and food too.

It's a great CF milestone and there must be a reason so many still come back. Thanks to everyone that ever posted something worth sharing. It's the fuel in the tank and wind in the sails. Ok, there are some floaters in the wake.

Re: CF Reaches 50,000 Members!

How many of the 50K are active/valid?

300?

From what I read every single day, there's maybe 1-3 pages of new posts every day, usually from the usual "gang" bantering amongst each other.

We have been averaging 1,200 to 1,400 a day logging in. We have right at 20,000 members have posted to the discussions.

It's a great milestone and there is no need to spoil enjoyment we should have for creating such a resource for cruisers worldwide. Congrats everyone!
