    What's golden about joining a forum with 2 members?
    I guess that a year later there could be a bit more but still.

    What's golden is owning it then, and then now. Good seeing things from where they began.

    i'm not sure where he gathered that BHW had only 2 members in 2006, OP's screenshot shows 2 active users (not even registered members, just guests) and that is only good for the moment when the snapshot was taken back in 2006, if you take a look at the screenshot, there are 8 threads started by different users, plus there was HaRRo and Diamond Dave, so there were at least 10 members, actually there was a lot more than that :)

    October or November 2015

    btw did i miss the 10th anniversary celebration last year or we didn't even have one?

    How cute. 2 members & 2 guests.

    The posts were: 1, 1, 4, 0, 6, 4, 8.

    The views:

    44
    52
    289
    24
    82
    255
    187
    250

    Was BHW ranking for phrases like "be aware"? Or were those views being boosted? :firedevil
    If you compare the amount of views back then to the views NOW in the lounge I see how BHW got rich.
