Hi everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that DeeperBlue.net Forums has hit 5000 registered members! The whole DeeperBlue.net crew is very excited about this and i'm particularly pleased to see how this community has grown!

Some interesting stats on how long it has taken for the community to grow:
  • It took us 2.5 years to get to 1000 members.
  • It took a further year to get to 2000 members.
  • It took 9 more months to get to 3000 members.
  • It took a further 6 months to get to 4000 members.
  • and finally it took us 3.5 months to get to 5000 members!
Thanks to everyone for making this community what it is today!
Thank you stephan!
this site is the friendliest and most informative I have taken part in..
At this rate, I'll be roughly 2 weeks till we reach 6000, then 4.8 days till we get 7000, then 1.98 days till 8000 members are accounted for. Then, if trends continue, we'll gain 9000 new members every 8.24899 seconds for following 12 hours after that.

In fact if all my calculations are correct, Deeperblue.net will have collapsed the space time continuum by mid-April, and the deeperblue servers will explode and create multiple suns within our solar system.

It is then, when all of Deeperblue's children will be able to perform hands-free equilization.

You can't argue with statistics, folks.

All hail the mighty Whelan!

A hundred informative posts regarding chemical exchanges during every possible combination of each discipline, have our statistics-minded members give it a once over, and THEN give them the free Yugo.
Thankyou very much deeperblue :)

In just 4 months i have learnt so much through this site. Reached 5 minutes in static from a complete beginner. Improved my skills which increased my passion for the sea. Met a new friend through this site too and we regulary go spearing/freediving and pool sessions, thanks Adrian. Awsome site full of info.

Excellant people.

thanks Stephan. Best of Luck. :wave
