Vizzed has just exceeded 1,000,000 posts! As a way to celebrate, I've made it so that posts are worth twice as much Viz for 1 week (until April 12th)! This also includes Threads, Reviews, Walkthroughs and Articles.
So how big of an accomplishment is 1 Million? Well we pulled it off in just under 10 years (the overall post count began on 12-06-04). The site was averaging around 100-200 posts per a day when this current Vizzed Board launched, now days it averages 400-500 posts a day. Now it may seem like the site's post count hasn't gone up very much since its launch but the 100-200 posts a day only lasted for the first few months of the site, after that the average was around 100 and it just kept dropping. At one point the site was averaging around 5 posts a day back in 2006 and there were even times when the site went more than 1 day without a single post. Things started picking up again in 2008 with 25-100 becoming the average and things really took off in 2009 when the Retro Game Room was added to the site.
A few fun facts:
-It took around 21,880 users to pull that off

-The average user post count is 45 (excluding non-posters)

Just like I did in the 1 Billion view count thread, I need to thank the staff (and the past staff too) for helping me keep this site under control and to help me keep the forum civilized. I'd also like to thank all the users who have posted and have helped make 1 Million posts possible. Not a lot of forums live long enough to ever reach 1 million posts so I'm pretty proud that Vizzed Board has been able to stick around long enough to pull it off.
1 Billion views was a huge accomplishment but I think 1 Million posts is an even bigger accomplishment because 1 Billion views can be done without a community but 1 Million posts can only be done with the help of an awesome and loyal community. Both Milestones are amazing though and we've been spoiled to witness both so close together. It's unfortunate that it'll be a very long time before we hit another huge significant milestone and even more unfortunate that a lot of the current active users wont be around for those milestones. This is not a time to think about that though, this is a time for party! A round of Vizzed Soda on me!
