Howdy, I downloaded the list of users on the forum today, page-by-page, and sorted according to the join date.  Surprise, surprise, the number of members on the forum is growing exponentially, doubling every 52 days or so, and has been doing so since the start of 2010, with a couple of faster growth periods.  See the attached graph.

At that rate the forum will reach a million people in just under a year.  Can SMF handle that load?  Can bitcoin's servers?  We can presume that the number of people running the client is *at least* equal to the number of people on the forum.  Can the BTC P2P protocol handle a million clients?

Oh, the "upload folder" is still full.  Can an admin please look into that.  You can find the graph at http://ubitio.us/file/download/391   It just shows an exponential growth in users.

Here is another thread with forum records, graphs, etc.

Hmm, not sure… There are probably some spam bots accounts, and there are people that went away and do not use the software anymore. Besides, not every one is running the client at the same time.

I can't make it free.  The minimum cost is 0.02BTC.  If you don't like it, complain to ubitious.  Or better still, complain to the admins of this forum that the upload folder is full, then I'll put the graph right here for you.

PROTIP:
use a picture hosting site instead of a file hosting site.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Fine. Can you suggest one that doesn't require me to register?

PROTIP #2: Google PicasaWeb, Flickr, Deviantart, Wuala, Dropbox, Spideroak, imgur, Facebook, etc, etc, etc, ALL offer gigabytes of free image hosting.

imgur.com, min.us (they are drag-and-drop compatible btw, no registration).

Surely you have a facebook or google account already, which allows you to manage the files after you upload them, without registering...

Ahh, didn't realise imgur was registration-less.  Had facebook, despise it, deleted it.  Have google, despise it, didn't delete it.  Here's the graph.

I wouldn't suggest tinypic.com as they're deleting your images pretty fast. I mean, for temporary host it's good, but if you read forum thread like this after few months, it's annoying that all images gone.

The more you believe in Bitcoin, and the more you show you do to other people, the faster the real value will soar!
