And some *very* good news, we finally reached half a million posts on Frihost! This finally classifies us as a big board (I'll try to get listed there). Thanks goes to all members of Frihost who made this possible. And not to forget the great staff members as without them this wouldn't have been possible.

And now, let's celebrate and then a million posts by 2008! Dancing
Blu_Spykz
Congratulations (founder) and all.

I'd like to say that Frihost could easily be the best (free hosting) service available - so thank you for that.

Hopefully I will contribute a good number of posts towards the millionth mark.

you have 24668 registered users if all those users have hosting thats 4933.6Gb How much space do you really have? obviously the compolsery posting is working and you can see that by the post count and the amount of hosting CONGRATS.

WOW! Yes, people, let's see if we can reach 1,000,000 QUALITY posts by 2008! If not, then by FEBRUAARY 2008. How many frih$ does that equal then?
william
Wow, we finally did it. I was closely observing the post counts since January 8, and I'm glad that we successfully made half a million posts. At the rate Frihost is growing, we probably will be able to reach a million posts by the year 2008.

Congratulations to Bondings, the staff, and the member's of Frihost!
garionw
Well Done!!!!

And another question relating to space - How much space do theses forums take up - I'm guessing somewhere between 250mb - 500mb

Congratulations to Bondings and all of FriHost! 540 of those 500,000 posts are mine, so without them this mark wouldn't have happened. Razz

Anyway, it's awesome that FriHost reached half a million posts in a little more than 1 year. I hope we get to 1 million posts in 2008. Smile

Congratulations Bondings and staff for putting together this system. Congrats to all the members here as well.
Given the growing membership, one million post should be easy to reach before 2008.

Solution: Most people don't use all their space...(I personally use around 10%). Also i would say only around 50% of members have hosting (complete guess)

CONGRATULATIONS TO FRIHOST AND STEVE B.!

Wow, that's sweet! Good job on getting the users to get 500,000 posts here, since you are the owner and founder of this board. Hopefully Frihost gets more active after, or if you put Frihost in the Big-Boards directory. I'm sure that alot of people looking for forums to post on will be happy to join this place, considering that they get free website/webpages, hosted by Frihost.

Good luck on a million posts.

I have far too much time on my hands.

I've posted 454 times on frihost. This being my 455th

Exactly 20 of my posts have been deleted, when either I've deleted them or the entire thread has been deleted

I've made 56 threads on frihost.

In my 56 threads, there has been a total of 1170 posts.

Therefore, the average amount of posts in each of my threads is 20.89285714.

The thead of mine which has had the most posts is Sleep Less to Get More Out of Life, on 425 posts. It is the longest topic in the Philosophy and Religion forum. It is 15 pages long, and was my first featured topic.

I was the first person to post in the new Film Making and Graphics forum.

I have had one of my topics stickied, [Guide] How to set up domains with Directadmin - Godaddy

0.09% of all topics on frihost are by me, while 0.234% of all posts on frihost have been in my topics. Therefore, around 1 in 500 posts is in my topics.

Actually, I'm quite proud of my accomplishments here, now that I look back through all my posts Smile

Congratulations everyone...

but I have one stupid question: why is it good to be a big board?
I mean an old board can have a million posts and still not necessarally very active...

I would have thought that a successful board is just one with a big community and that's all...

I typed in this URL (http://www.frihost.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=500000) into my address bar and had a look at the topic.
As far as I can see either jwellsy or chrismen got the 500,000th post.

I've been looking at the total posts on Frihost for a while now waiting for them to get to half a million. WUUU! Now they have! Very Happy

If everyone spams like crazy we could get to 1,000,000 in a few months. Razz Then again, maybe that's not such a good idea... Cool

I was having a look at that Big Boards website and some of the forums are manic! One single board got a massive 6.7 million posts just last week! OMG! Razz Only two boards listed on there managed over one million posts in a week; it's quite likely in fact that those were the only two boards in the world to get over 1 million posts last week. Very impressive.

Anyway, Congratulations to FRIHOST, Bondings, the Team of Mods and Admins and everyone who helped get to the BIG [half way] mark!!

Congratulations to Frihosters for contributing to a successful site. I'm sure getting listed on the big boards site will help us attract more viewers and posters. What I think is more important, though, is to keep up the good work with meaningful posts, so we can qualify for a listing on quality-posts dot com (probably not a real site, but it should be)!

Let's all continue with the quality threads that will interest people in staying on the site a while, and lead to server 3 being added soon!

As long as the free hosting service keeps on going for the forthcoming years, I dont see why things should plunge Smile

I will keep on posting and not only for compulsory purposes but because there's a great community down here and so many cool topics to chat about together Smile

Lol about the special price granted to the millionth lucky poster, should Steve double his amount of free space storage and rise it to 500 MB? Very Happy

Nah, if so, it wouldn't be fair for all the other frihosters Smile

Anyways, congratulations and let's hope we'll do better this year Mr. Green

jwellsy.
Hover over the little page icon on here.
500k!
Though through this method, it counts deleted posts...
So I'm not sure who the real winner is.

I've been pretty dead on the forums.
Sorry ppl.
I fear I'm gonna lose my hosting if I keep at this rate.
And my site is barely starting to pickup. Sad
I'll try my hardest to get back in the game.
For now I'm content with getting outta negative pts.

PS: Congratz to everyone who made this possible, and especially Bondings for hosting such an enthralling board.

That's Awesome is back and getting ready for the new season! The first episode will air September 22nd so be sure to tell all your friends. A few of the upcoming segments from the new season are That's Awesome News, interviews with the cast of Arrested Development, and Chopsticks. Also, a new website design is under production and should be completed in the next few weeks.

Bluecradle and others who asked about the 500K post, as there are quite some posts removed, it is not simply the post with number 500.000. As I wasn't online when it happened so I don't know the actual user. And yes I guess I can make an sql query to check for it, but it's not worth all the time and trouble I guess. Wink

Unfortunately those special number members/posts are usually not active/quality members, but most of the time a not-activated account, one-time poster or similar.

My congratulations for hoping to make it to the Big Board. Smile

Let us not forget that Frihost forum does not only have ‘posts’, but mostly, quality posts and that is the big difference. The short time that the 500,000 bench mark was achieved is remarkable. Most of the Big Board listers are almost online for decades and that is the main reason they were able to amass such number of posts. Aside from that, most of their posts are one-liners similar to chat. One may even ask oneself, are the posters posting or chatting? If you will observe keenly, most of their posts will land in the spam category of Frihost. How about suggesting a new title of Big Spam Boards instead? That is the lighter side of it … Smile

As an example, look at the great posts of The Princess Philosopher. Her one post may consume as much as five pages. If you will break her post into one-liner posts that’s maybe 10,000 ‘posts’. So, using a one-liner technique may bring a forum to the Big Board in a short period, BUT… are those one-liners really post? At Frihost, the quality of the post counts more than the number and that set Frihost apart from the ordinary Big Boards listers.

If Frihost will be included in the Big Boards then, maybe and probably, it will be the only forum that will banner the quality of the posts rather than just mere numbers.

For an honest and personal opinion, I would still rather look forward for more quality posts rather than number fillers.

Congratulations once more to the owner, staff, and each member. Your efforts did it all… Applause

You've posted in the wrong place. You need to create a new topic for something like this.

However, you should have read the requirements and it would be fairly obvious, I would have thought - I worked it out along with thousands of others. I recommend reading the initial guide; also have a look at the Tearms of Service (TOS) and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).

Once you have the required minimum of 5 quality posts and 10 points you will need to apply for hosting via your Account page; it's always best to get more posts and points than this in my opinion (you're more likely to be hosted). If you are successful then you will get your web space. After this you should ask further questions in either the Web Hosting Support or the Frihost Support forums.

Now, back on topic!

Awsome!

Congratulations. So it's an average of 50 post per person... I'm sure some has only a few posts while others (like me) has many.
duckling
it is not a big number for FriHost i think. there should be a million of posts because FriHost is a really big site.
skygaia
Congratulation....

It's very good news to reach half a million posts on Frihost.
I just make posts on Frihost to keep my web account. But sometimes I would find out very useful and funny posts ..

And another question relating to space - How much space do theses forums take up - I'm guessing somewhere between 250mb - 500mb

A lot more than that; If I remember right, I once read here that the database alone is several GB.


Possibly you are correct...but you must factor in all the posts that have been canned that still remain in the DB after everything. We do not just delete posts of low, or no qaulity.....we place them in the spamecan. Plus you also have to factor in all of the image graphics used and also the custom graphics.

It all adds up quickly. Smile

On the server, the database takes almost 700MB, the sql file should be a bit less, but comparable. The gzipped sql file takes 170MB. And yes it takes a while to download - the generation is pretty fast actually if done from the command line - just a few minutes to generate the sql file and the same to gzip it. Downloading takes an hour for me.

did you mean spamcan max?
do old posts get pruned, or is that db all of frihosts posts ever?

what/who was the 500,000th post?
sorry if it was already answered, i dont really feel like reading through multiple pages of posts to try and find it right now, please forgive me

You would have to adress Bondings to be sure if old posts are indeed pruned, but I don't believe they are.

Please forgive my mispelling of "Spamcan"....I was typing too fast and I am my own spell checker. Sad

I apologize for any confusion.

that's huuuuge. so i'm the number 600,000 by now, right??.. lol. Congratulations guys!!
ninjakannon
There have been just over 7500 posts since this topic was posted - that's taken 10 days. That means that FriHost gets around 750 posts a day, which isn't enough to get us to 1,000,000 by 2008. In fact, it would take 133 days to get another 100,000.

Now that looks wrong, somehow. I'm sure I've done my sums right, but I could swear that FriHost accumulates posts faster than that.

Am I right?

Nope, you got that right, It also means it will take 666 (Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil ) days to reach 1 million posts which is around 1.8 years (1 Year 9 Months) - Which is about right considering Frihost opened April '05 (Correct me if I'm wrong Wink) and it's been 1 Year 6 Months since it opened - Which means we *hopefully* can get 1 Million posts by 2009!

Wow... Didn't see that one coming - I was thinking of 500,000 posts at around 4kb each which is 4mb every 1000 posts so that makes 40mb for 100,000 posts and finally 200mb for 500,000 posts. But I'm not sure if that post count, counts the Spam Can as well. But it compresses well Laughing

Sure, but you need to also consider all the other database tables (like the members table). Also, the size of the index needs to be added to that (I'm not sure but I think it may have a fulltext index for the search).

Hooray for FriHost!

I'm not even taking advantage of the hosting yet, but I've been posting here because it's a good community; nearly everyone I've encountered here has been friendly, helpful, and/or entertaining.

There's an occasional stupid post, but nowhere NEAR as many as you find on a lot of boards, and that makes reading and posting in these forums a lot more enjoyable.

So congratulations to everyone who has contributed! Including me Wink

The thing is, the number of posts per day would have started out really slowly and there wouldn't have even been 100 per day. But as the number of members has increased the so has, quite obviously, the number of posts. Thus, you would expect the number of posts per day to rise faster with the higher number of users FriHost has. I would have thought that the number of active users would continue to rise, however it hasn't - it appears to have just about stabilised, although it could still be slowly rising, I'm not sure. Anyway, there would have been a good few months before FriHost got 750 posts per day, or thereabout, so you would expect it to take a few months less (as opposed to 2 months more) for FriHost to accumulate another 500,000 posts.

So why has everything apparently slowed down? I'll try and remember to have a look after 20 days and see what the rate is at then. Perhaps there's been a bit of a slump in posting, although I doubt it.

All of this mathematics would ceratinly be correct if you didn't factor in the exponential growth factor. The more users we have...the more posts we get...it's highly problematic to really judge any growth factor.....what if 1000 users decide to go a posting spree for just a weekend?

That's 2 days that doesn't fit it with your numbers. I'm not trying to be negative....quite the opposite actually....we will make 1,000,000 in a very short stretch of time. Smile

I'm going to give up trying to work out when FriHost will get 1,000,000 posts. We all need to get the friends we have that we're sure will post a lot to join FriHost; then this site will thrive... Or server 2 will fill up and everyone will get annoyed waiting for a server 3. Razz

Need I say more? Yes, that will get us to 1 million posts faster, but heck I don't think it would be a well earned 1 million if they were all pointless double posts.

congrats to frihost and it's creators.
i must admid i'm not good at calculating when we will be reaching the next milestone but seeying how many people are members of this site and those numbers keeps increasing. i'm certain it won't take as long as it did till now to reach the half million. but that is just my own humble opinion. lol.
anyway, congrats to all. but i think we should congrat the posters themself too for posting so a sheer for yourself. after all a great forum can only exist with the help of it's members.

I did find one other host which didn't put ads on your pages... It went down for a week, then just died all together. Even if there are other hosts like FriHost (and I'm sure there are) I remain adamant that none offer such high quality and reliability as FriHost does.

Why are you surprised FriHost is alive? After all, free hosting is highly desirable for a lot of people and you have to post to get hosting here; so you would expect quite a few people to post here, really.

Hah, if you cannot find a suitable smiley, don't post one! Razz
If you don't mind me asking, why is FriHost emotional for you?

Anyway, FriHost does offer reliable free hosting, however it's not 100%. I must say amazing quality is offered considering it's all free. But there is noticeable downtime on server 2, even though it's not an enormous amount it is irritating - even if only for a few seconds at a time. When my forum was more active my friends complained about the momentary downtime to me, especially when they were posting. Also, when I'm working on my site, downtime is a big annoyance.

But, on the other hand, the good points far outweigh the bad ones here at FriHost and I'm certainly here to stay.

Congratulations, way to go, that's really really a huge number and much time spent on posting. If you write one answer ~1 minute, than 500.000 posts takes around 8333 hours which is approximate 347 days Shocked Hmm is that possible or am I wrong? Shocked

To be honest most of my answers will take at least two minutes - some have taken me half an hour (if I write 1000 words, or thereabout). There are, however, lots of people who post short 1 liners to keep their points up and those will take a minute. If the average post time is 1 minute then you are right; I'm going to make a poll on the General Chat forum about how long it takes you to write your posts and see.

Okay, well with posts like that I think you really do need to be anxious. Oh, and I just realised that it was a double post as well as being off-topic.

Need I remind you that you need a minimum of 5 quality posts and at least 10 points before your hosting is accepted. Now, you haven't yet made 5 quality posts, have you? You have the required points though, so you're half way there.
