Ubuntuforums.org Membership = 480,524 [11:20 AM - AEST 19 Jan, 2008 ]

7 Feb is my guess! Prognosis is based on daily membership growth of 1k +.

I've never sat back and calculated how many join at a certain span, but I definately know we'll be over 500K by April ;)

Canonicals guess of 6-12 million Ubuntu users is looking a lot more real now..

how many are active? I barely frequent this place anymore as i've left the land of Ubuntu

There's a usual 7-9k of people online.

And, I'm glad that Ubuntu is a starting point for many people here.

Are we using price-is-right rules? Closest without going over?

Feb 29th!!

January 19th, 2008, 11:55 PM
feb 7th by the above setting 8th for normal closest is the winner setting.

I changed my guess, we will have 500K members on the of Feb. 17-Feb. 23

January 20th, 2008, 12:55 AM
I'm going to go ahead and guess May 7th 2008. I figure the number will be hit either right before Hardy, or close after.

Ubuntu Forums Statistics Members: 490,091
All times are GMT -4. The time now is 08:09 PM. (30 Jan - 11:09 AM - AEST)

My prediction - 5-10 Feb - seems on target!
8 or 9 Feb AEST!?

NB: Taking into consideration other non-English language Ubuntu forums and lists, total membership is more likely to be 750K+! The French, German and Chinese language forums alone have more than 150k memberships.
