  • I don't see how this is more wtf than Facebook, Gaia online or forums dedicated to some specifed hobby.



  • Thanks for that, I just spent ten minutes reading about uses and care of old lithium cells.

    and, how, may we ask, did you find this site?  How many of those posts belong to you, eh??

    Nope.  None are mine.  A friend sent me the link in an e-mail that basically said "WTF!!! How can you have hundreds of thousands of posts about flashlights!!"


  • That forum has been running from 2000. So not that surprizing.



    From the forum of an online game I play:

    General discussion | Topics: 1008 Posts: 23808

    Guild forum, containing about 30 people, private | Topics: 1281 Posts: 28851



    And we have only been running for 3 years.

    Say, a programming forum. 😉

    ======= 

    I suppose people who tend to the lights at concerts etc would enjoy that forum. Or those who want to do some home improvement. Calling WTF at generic human behaviour seems a little trwtf. The WTFs of individuals, however... 🙂

    Yeah, but theres not hardly any useful information on those 14 pages. And some of it is just a crazy loop without any consistent subject matter. Nothing to be proud of.

    Right, but you regularly contribute to it. Not to mention there has been no discussion of anyone (except the great bearded one) being proud of it...

    So what was your point again?

    8 years = 8 x 365 = 2920

    Round it off to 3000 since we don't know exactly when in 2000 it started.

    396,995 / 3000 = 132.33166
