Wow. O.O That's wild!

I'm so excited about how wonderfully things are going already! ^_^ My new community has almost 200 comments since launch!

Thanks for all the work you've put into this [and are sure to put in from now on], it's wonderful to have a site that makes me feel valued instead of just another pair of eyeballs to look at ads.

My thoughts exactly. Having had "internet marketers" as clients in the past, I'm really leery of any site with ads, because there's a good chance the people who put them there do consider their visitors to be nothing more than eyeballs for ads, regardless of the nature or purpose of the site.

To all the Dreamwidth staff, I've said this a few times already, but bravo. You've done an amazing thing here, and I look forward to seeing/helping it grow :-)

This. Absolutely.

I'm thrilled to be in on nearly-the-beginning of DW.

Hmmm, for some reason I'm not seeing whatever it is everyone else is seeing. There's no image in the post for me.

ETA: disabling AdBlock made it visible. I haven't added anything to do with DW to my AdBlock setting, so I'm not sure why it's being blocked.

Wow. That're serious waves! Impressive.

It's fascinating how you can see daylight times in America overlaid with a smaller rise from Europe/Asia in the peaks. :)

I'm truly impressed with the service you've set up here. So many useful features and none of the annoyances (ads & co, no external commenting without spamunamis). Lovely & best wishes for more rise in the (user) tides.

Wow. That's amazing. I had no idea that so many people had signed up so quickly.

Ahahahaha! Yeah, that's what I'd call a significant spike. ;)

That's great!

I'm guessing that tiny, gradual increase right before the huge spike was people refreshing to see if they could get to the shop page?

(yeah I'm more interested in the points of interest that aren't the thing you were pointing out, I dunno)

On dialup, I could *feel* that. Well, not me personally, but every page loaded slower, and the css got funkier and funkier.

I knew it took a hit.

I have high speed digital cable, and in the minutes leading up to site launch the entirety of DW was crawling for me hah.

The outbound (reading) rate is averaging over nine times the inbound (posting) rate.

And they say that people don't read any more! ;-)

I'm so brand new to this, I squeak!

I think I created the account Thursday night. I remember about a week or two ago, someone posted on LJ about DW, and I was like, "WHATEVA, staying where I am!!" (which is InsaneJournal) Then, a friend offered up a couple invites, and, being the hypocrite that I am, I nabbed one.

I like the look of things so far, and love the idea of getting in on the ground floor, so to speak. I'm still wandering around lost, but I'll get there. Thanks for giving us a new place to play. I'm using a free account for now, and may upgrade to a paid one soon, depending on how much time I spend here. I have friends who want invites, so I hope to get some codes really soon.

Looking at your meter reminds me of when I got my IJ account, and how it exploded about two months later. Off the charts!! I expect you'll encounter the same thing. *g*

The second spike later, almost as high, is interesting! What happened then?
