Will our popularity spoil us?

Only time will tell...

Today we passed 500 members and we're getting close to 5,000 posts. That's when the search feature starts to become really useful.

I talked to a friend a couple days ago, who I'm going to build a building for.  He was really impressed with the information on this site and gave someone else the URL for it. :)

Why won't the search function allow periods? I can't search "1.5 story" because of the decimal.

I'm not sure why you had a problem - I just tried it and got 15 posting replies.  Glenn

Now it'll take the decimal but I get this:

The requested number of results is higher then the maximum number allowed by the system.
Maximun Search Results Allowed = 15


I'm getting irritated

I can fill that role if you need me too.  ;D  :D j/k  I'd rather not.  I like how everyone here gets along.  I've only found two boards where so many people get along so well.  This one and a motorcycle board.

The 12th of the month seems to be the day to be on country plans web site.

What is the difference between users, members,and guests?
Are users members that have not logged in?

Users include members and guests.  Guests can include members who have not logged in or non-members.  High amounts of guests and members don't seem to occur often at the same time, so user high can occur at a different time.

Wow, Amanda!   :o  8-)  For some reason it makes me think of the Greek "alpha & omega..."  

"A"manda posted the 10,000th post & "Z"imZum was the 1000th member to sign up...  don't know if there is any meaning to that...   :-/   ;)

durned if I know!  It may be just because 1,000 follows 999 (and 10,000 follows 9,999).

Lots of web spiders here indexing us lately.  Probably going to get busier.

I'm not sure the spiders can actually read and link to the forum topics. I would love it if they could but I'm not sure YABB can do that. (It would also make searching easier!)

As a second topic... Let me know if you like (or at least can tolerate) the Google ads I added to the forum today. I notice that the ads will adjust to the topic of discussion. One question on water softeners had information in the ads on water softeners, supplies, etc. That might actually be helpful sometimes! (and it does help the site, of course).

Maybe Google can read the topics  :D - it may be smarter than I think. (I think, therefore I Google  :))

Sometimes the google ads are really funny in context.

The treehugger bit about the bicycle powered washing machine kind of buffaloed them--so we got a link so we could learn about how Colorado has soooo much oil.

Not a really funny one, though.  Those come when we are asked to go to eBay for Kantian philosophy.

By the way, Google advertisers are kind of a weird bunch.  Caveat Emptor.  Buyer beware.

Amanda:

Doesn't that same advice hold for the Internet in general?

Probably including the advice we all spout off with here!  :D

As for the Google ads, most of us will soon ingore them... However, I found this neat little tutorial on pole buildings from a Google Ad link this evening. Quite valuable.

I'm not sure why the spiders are here - Inktomi - AOL MPC?  lots of them swoop in on us per IP addresses.

You do find us on Google searches quite often.

The Google adds are no problem for me ---they must be able to read it if they can apply relevant adds.

Not from a spider search but check us out - mention in LA times--

Well, I'll be danged! That was a pretty nice write up.  :D

Glenn: How are you watching the spiders crawl our site? I don't think I know how to do that.

Is Robert Smaus a member here? If not, I think should we invite him to post progress pictures of his place as he builds.

Robert Smaus can be reached at rsmaus@earthlink.net.

We are almost Famous!

I cant wait for one of those DIY Channels to do a piece on Johns Designs, They could tour a project or two each week built by our members!
