Here's a 2006 prediction "Look OUT! ActiveRain is Gonna Blow " (Members Only)
Bob Stewart's post telling us the end is near (the end of the proxy errors that is) reminded me of Cheryl Teague's post from ActiveRain's 2nd or 3rd month of existence. Bob wrote "server update" yesterday.
ActiveRain is gonna blow - 2006
If you are a member read the comments in this precious page out of ActiveRain's history. Cheryl Teague who is not currently active wrote it because of early sever error messages. According to a Florida member there were less than 800 members in Florida at the time. How many members do you think there are in Florida today?
"There are 19117 Florida Real Estate Profiles"
That's pretty darn active.
ActiveRain - 2010
Wonder how many pageviews per day now... with 179,695 members and a lot of Google juice? Someone in the know said in the comments back in August 2006:
"150k page views yesterday"
The title of Cheryl's post has always bothered me... I am sure you could get some "smart alecs" to agree that "ActiveRain blows." There are times I am angry with ActiveRain, or maybe frustrated is a better word.
- server errors
- having a hard time adding photo
- the plagiarism some members embrace
- robotic point pig comments
- "inappropriate" content on Localism
Cheryl was talking about some early isolated issues that may or may not have had to do with hardware, traffic, the growth of ActiveRain back in 2006. It is amazing how loyal some members are to ActiveRain and how others have grown disenchanted with ActiveRain over time.
I just wanted to share the 2006 view of growth on ActiveRain with you.
We did not have a clue about the future.
