Just a small addition to interviews and other content, i think we should have a polled annual awards to things like 'Most influential futurist', 'Best book relating to the future', '10 best new ideas' etc. Obviously Elon Musk wouldnt want to know he won an award here lol but also targetting lesser knowns for an award might help get an interview?

Just as there are publications whose awards are regarded amongst the highest accolades in the world. There isnt really any giving of Futurist awards, so here at FT we could just make it the only Futurist award worth winning (because there isnt any other)

Most members ever online in one day was 224, last accomplished on 28 Nov 2013.

 

 

Ok, now this is starting to really bug me.   How did we get from 224 members to an average of around 50?  

 

I almost take it personally since I think that peak was shortly before I arrived.  Was it something I said?

Spambots. I think it was November 29th of 2013 that the forums got hit with the largest way of spam ever.

How many?

Good question.  I suppose you estimate that by subtracting the average participation rate from when the spambots hit.

 

Any other ideas?

 

Also, maybe we should get spambots to return and then claim them as legitimate readers.  I mean if Trump can get away with it, then why can't we?

 

Oh, that is right. Never mind.  Leavenworth does not sound all that appealing to me.

It'll be nice to see this forum grow in size. A 100,000 active members. That's the goal

No that would be much too big. One thing I like about this forum is that it's possible to keep track of everything that's going on here and still have time to spare for a life.

Not too me, I like big forums. More people to interact with
