knowing the forum and how to navigate it as well as you do, can you tell exactly who the 25,000th member is, and when he/she joined?

Mate, one of the mods. would have to answer that.
I was working and when I returned we were at 25,001.
For us, unless you were watching at the time, can't tell, sorry.

oh well, maybe one of them will see this and let us know. you've been here awhile-- has this summer (up in our part of the world) been an unusually active summer for folks joining, or has this been more or less typical?

This is a great site. I have learned enormously from the excellent discussions here on Ruger Forum!

The bigger this forum gets, the faster it will grow.
Word of mouth has helped, let's face it, this forum is very helpfull and informative.
At the moment we have 91 members and 638 lurkers online.
Some of these will join.
Up to about a week ago, we were averaging up to 200 new members a week.
The rate wasn't that many when I joined about eighteen months ago.

We have grown almost 40% since December 3, 2011.

On December 3, LAGun posted up that the forum had reached the 18,000 member mark. Today I noticed that with the newest member we had 18,667 members.
That is phenomenal growth. It actually equates to 25.65 new members every day over this past month.
That has got to be the sign of a healthy forum. New folk every day, some experienced, some inexperieced but all with a common interest seeking and imparting knowledge and sharing their latest aquisitions.
With this rate of growth I would predict that we should hit our 20,000 member mark somewhere around middle to late February 2012.

What a great forum we have here.
