Funjoint has been named 'Forum of the Month' of 2 different forums for this month so we're very proud of that.

We will hit a total of 500,000 posts this month sometime.

@AussiePaul That's an impressive statistics. It's very rare to see projects last for more than ten years. What was the secret that you could run the forum for 13 years? I imagine you must've lost motivation several times before.

And congratulations for being crowned forum of the month! If you are interested, do participate in our Community of the Month too to make it three times. ;)

Hi @Migi

Thanks for the kind words. Oh yes, I have lost motivation once or twice before. We were fairly quiet from 2011ish until the end of 2015 with only 4 or 5 members keeping us going. Start of 2016, the inspiration returned and 2016 was possibly our best year ever. Not really any secret to be honest, new members always keep it fresh, at the very beginning way back in 2003 there was about 15 people who all knew each other on another forum that ended so that helped kick start us. Only 4 from way back then still remain though.

Just a short while ago, the 10,000th thread was made on the forum.

That's quite a long "quiet period". Most people would have quit during that time. I guess the question is how you managed to bring all those new members then. Perhaps some admins who are also experiencing "quiet period" can do the same. It's also rare to find members who still diligently post around after all these years. I myself had to take the time off a few times before due to life commitments.

Congratulations for the 10k threads! :)

It's easy to blame social media but I kind of do.
Have tried contacting a lot of the regulars from years gone by but their e-mail addys just bounce back.

I started promoting it on the proboards support site and other forums and people came gradually. Plus we have affiliates so people tend to find us from other forums. :)

Today we also cracked 1000 votes on the 1 award site. Not bad considering we only started on that in March.
