  • Forum Update

    What comes after gobsmacked? Dumbfounded? Shocked? Astounded? Stupified? Whatever the word, I never cease to be amazed by just how well our forum is doing after just three weeks.

    Initially I was going to update everyone about the forum's progress next week (that would mark one month since audionirvana went live), but I couldn't stand it any longer and needed to share some exciting site news with everyone.

    The forum has been growing by leaps and bounds since we went live. In a little over three weeks time, over 200 audiophiles have joined the forum! That's unbelievable! And congratulations go out to our 200th member, Tbzc. Welcome to the friendliest and most collegial bunch of audiophiles ever assembled on the internet! But there's even more good news that I'd like to share. Sunday was our busiest day to date with 270 posts. Our internet rating, a combo of traffic and pageviews, goes up every day and is ever so impressive for a new site. The number of members--not to mention the number of pageviews, sessions and traffic--continues to rise every day. Two days ago, an astounding 350 people visited audionirvana.

    So keep up the good work and give yourselves all a pat on the back. The discussions are always interesting and I learn something every day! The music forums always have some new interesting new music to read about. I am looking forward to next couple of months as word gets continues to spread about audionirvana and our membership ranks swell! Tell your audiobuddies and spread the word that not all high-end audio sites are the same. To those lurkers who read the forum but haven't joined yet, please register and be a part of our growing audio community! Share your audio experiences, you audio equipment, your musical tastes or even just ask some questions you have. I'm pretty sure that you'll find someone here that can answer your questions!

    Until the next time!

                  Myles- the real strength of any web forum is in its participants- you have attracted a great mix of members who seem to appreciate that this is a pursuit in which information can be shared and views exchanged with mutual respect, and without rancor or oneupmanship. It is a valuable addition to a cluttered field and I am glad to be part of it.
