it would be interesting to know how project posts or post in general increased as jocks joined.

maybe martin can let us in on some data…

because if your the 1st , 2nd , or even 10th person to join theres not much going on but eventually theres a break through point i would imagin.

There are quite a few people that sign up and then never come back. I’ve probably done that on a few sites myself. I leave and wonder where was that site that I asked a question.

In the early days before there were many people. We had a lot of fun. Some one would post a comment and others would respond to their comment and so on until it was beadtime. It was a lot of friendly gabbing. We didn’t have messages so all messages were a part of projects etc.

But there were not a lot of projects. The first contest was where I first got really involved. Up to that time I was mostly a lurker and would show up once a week or so. But in those days it would take a day or so for the pulse page to roll to the 2nd page. Now anything over 60 minutes is on the second page or third page. A lot of new activity.

And Mr Trim I’m going to nail your trim to the floor of the basement.

it was somewhat quiet for many months. Almost no posting done on Saturdays, so if you posted a project late on Fri, chances are you were on the home page for quite a while. Before the pulse, blogs and all this Web 2.0 brilliance, the only way people would see your stuff is the time it was “most recent”, or just had a comment on it. Otherwise you’d have to go digging to see the treasures that the not too many before me had posted. twas easy, once upon a time, to see every project and read every comment – without spending all our shop time on LJ instead. As it got a bit busier, we’d comment more, when I joined I too was a lurker, only commenting if something really grabbed me. Funny thing though, after a year we were still small and friendly. Neighborly I guess you could say. The Thorsen Table contest in conjuntion with Popular woodworking brought in a whole new wave of LJ’s, then we were “big time” it’s been rapid growth since then… but still feels neighborly. Nice and not intimidating place to show and share our work, and escape the solitude of the shop – without boring our wives to death with all the wood talk.

As Martins page shows. Projects and Jocks were first on the scene. So all communication was on their profile and on projects. 2 months later we got Forums, three months after that we got Workshops and 8 months we got blogs.

Then the growth started to hit.
