View Full Version : New Registrations

Has anyone else noticed the sudden surge in new registrations for this site?

Before 4 months ago only 3 times had monthly registrations topped 100, with a maximum of 128 in one month. In the last 3 months there have been over 400 per month each month. Approximately, the number of registered members has doubled in the last 3-4 months from 1500 to over 3000.

I'm just curious....is the site just THAT popular now? Is it spyware (and where is all the spyware coming from all of a sudden) ? Or is it just trolls?

There are cetianlly a bunch of spammers in the mix. Then we have those screwed up riders fans invading the site:D. However al ot of it could be done to this-the team stuggling-pissed off at DM etc and also angry at the imcompatent CFL officiatting. Plus the odd mention by Stuaffer probally helps aswell.

you wouldn't believe how many of the damn things we have to ban each day!

That said, there have been some legit sign ups... folks that may have learned about this site from FaceBook and the like.
