Ok so shoot me, i cant remember what happened this month! (it is 7:30 am after all)
There has been another steady increase in number of new members signing up this month. I dont think we had any spikes, so these will mainly be referrals from friends, cyberarmy and other challenge sites.
Site development - aidan *finally* got all his new search stuff in, which is looking great, and I did the email validation stuff with some of help from domuk and t12. Those guys always stop me cutting corners! I find the email notification feature on private messages really useful (and i hope others do) Hopefully we will extend that to other areas of the site. I also put in the site comments block to help show the activity happening in some of the less accessible areas of the site.
Articles have slowed off a bit in this month, but I guess we had been spoiled with TroPes outstanding efforts in the previous month, but there has been a few nice contributions from not-so regular faces, so a big thanks to them.
In the coming month we have some cool new things to add to the site (currently in development) so hopefully we will be reporting back on their successful introduction next month.
As ever, a massive thanks to everyone who contributed in some way this month, even if its just by submitting your solution to a geek level or just utilising the osidrive to host some pictures - its all good stuff!
