    how badly (if at all) do you think this record will be broken on wednesday Dec 20th when the new trailer appears online. everyone will want to voice their opinions (hopefully good ones).

    I think it will happen on Thursday.

    Everyone will see it on Wednsday, think everyone is on the boards at that time, and decide to wait until Thursday

    The site is totally going to bomb out, IMO. I'll probably have to wait till Friday to see the trailer...in the theater.

    Whether to curse it or praise it,Wednesday will be a busy day for 2005. For some reason as compared to the other boards, 2005 ALWAYS has a huge influx of new registrants.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it reach 2,500 to 3,000 users online

    It's not that impressive when you consider that a decent portion of that could be members who registered years ago, maybe posted once or twice (if even). Then dissapear again once they say their "piece" about the hot movie news at the time

    I'd say the number is more likely to be broken when / if they bust the next big bit of movie news or a leaked image or something.

    I think the trailer would count as "bigbit of movie news" and isnt the trailer a complete series of leaked images. :)

    Not every user online is a registered user. 2096 was the number of active sessions.

    QFT. Imagine if every registered user tossed in $10, the price of one deluxe. TFW would be good to go for a loooong time.

    The thing is that the trailer is not hosted on the TFW2005 servers. A lot of people will show up, but most people will just go to their respective normal message boards to talk about it. However, when TFW2005 gets an exclusive image - say the Jazz designs or the Ratchet designs, all other news sites on the net (AICN etc) link back to TFW2005 - that's what gives the HUGE-ASS spikes in traffic.

    The server can handle the traffic. I don't know about you guys, but the 500 Internal Server Message is something I've not seen in a very long time at all. Board always goes pretty fast for me, too, unless by brother is on XBox Live or something.

    New policy suggestion: Anybody who joins from today onwards and wants to make redundant complaint posts about the movie has to be a supporter in order to pay for the bandwidth they're wasting. :D
