Title: New Forum Record!
Post by: bluesman on August 24, 2011, 01:06:41 AM
We set a new record today at 7:54pm EST. We had 114 users/guests online at that time. The AHA is becoming ever so popular these days.

This is a great place to hang out.  :)

I remember when it started :D

A bunch of  us came over from the (unmentionable) forum because of something the weazle did. Or they did to him ???
I can't remember now but I was mad >:(

Unmentionable? Oh, you must mean the www.pantlessbaconswingers.com forum.

Yea...that's right they nixed the non-beer related discussions which was the beginning of the great migration.  :)

Fond memories there.  8)

I still check in from time to time but the AHA rules!

Cheers to the AHA, bacon, turtles, and lack of pants. This is always an entertaining place.

Seems very strange that there are over 200 guests here and well over half of them are viewing the "My Brewery and Alehouse-Shed" thread.

While I think it is sad that a lot of other forums seem to be losing steam I am glad to see the one flourishing. Heck, we have Gorden Strong, Drew Beechum, Denny (well, I guess he's on all the forums  :D) and even Charlie P stopping in from time to time. Hard to beat that starting line up!

I hate to disagree, but the new record was set due to East Coasters coming here to get earthquake civil defense updates on the All Things Food forum.    ;D

I have actually joined a jeep forum. I am getting ready to rebuild my 1984 cj7. (the first of two)  i bought it when i first joined the navy in 1984.  i am hoping that the members their are even half as worthy as the AHA members.

While I have no idea why- there were over 75 guests around 3am. That has to be some kind of record. Mostly looking at the ^^^^ thread. Now there's over 240 people on the forum. WOW. Now let's just get them a'postin...Or a'joinin.

It seems very strange to me. Has there been some sort of schism on one or more of the other forums? The country's politically charged right now- working itself up for the elections, and letting that sort of ass-hattery get out of hand could drive people away.

But, I can't be bothered to go look for myself. It's too nice here. :)

Yeah really, that shed was inspiration for my mancave, and since finding pics of it, I've throw out all of my porn.

I can only speculate...I have no firm info.  Maybe people have heard about this forum (as they hear about many forums) and just want to see what it's about.  Other than that, no idea.

I'm a refugee from the "other place" too. I still check in over there from time to time, but this forum is hands down the best brewing forum out there. And also just a great place to knock about and share other common interests with genuinely cool and interesting people. I've known some of you guys going on six years now!  You don't know how many times I've referred to a "friend" from the beer forum (even though I've never met any of you in person) when talking about beer/brewing/etc. with my wife or other friends.  Hopefully, I'll be able to make it to the NHC one of these years!

Cheers to the AHA!

Me too, and I do the same. The migration and the reference to my friends on the forum...and I enjoy meeting anyone willing to meet me. I travel enough to reach some of you and I am always up for a beer. My two most common destinations are the Twin Cities, and San Diego. I make it to each city at least once if not twice a year...

Cheers to the best group of brewers out there!

After posting my last message, I went trolling about in the rest of the forum. I came across the All Grain vorlauf (http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=8879.0) thread.

I noticed gogreen437's apprehension in asking a question in fear of getting the "we already covered that / use the search function" response.

That has always been a pet peeve of mine. If someone asks a question and a quick "look it up, fool!" response shows up.

The thread is a perfect example of how members here read the question and answered it. Who cares if we had gone over it before.
If we didn't want to talk about beer, "again" we probably wouldn't be here.

Cheers again to a great group...
