Most users ever online was 176 on Tue Aug 24, 2004 10:46 am
Registered Users: 94mustangv6, big_mak, coda13, dbuitt00, dracos, EdoKoi, exploringspace, filmbot, Flytrap7, fungow, g.m.waters (red ranger3), gamerfreak, garetjax, Jordan_Hounsell, KrAs, Lazar, philtronix, Skeksis, Taintpainter, TWBalls, urmumsacow, Urvile

What exactly happened on this date that netted this forum 176 registered, logged on viewers? Since then, I have been keeping tabs on this and have yet to see any number even come close to approaching the one in August.

So what gives? Why all the registered viewers on at the same time on that date? Free subscription to MPC being given out? The editors at MPC endorsing a 'flame the staff' thread?

Out with it, I demand it!

All I remember is that I was there. LOL! Maybe it was the first plug in the mag. I dunno, but what I do know is that there was a huge participation count around then. We were all running around nekkid posting like grasshoppers. Course, then HK-47 stepped on us and we had to stop. ;)

I hate the sound grasshoppers make when you step on them. :shock:

Yeah, this forum was a lot more fun when it first opened up and the rules weren't quite being inforced yet.

Here's a few of my favorites:

There was also another thread that I posted a Goon photoshopped USPS flyer a couple of times in but I can't find it, but here's what it looked like:

Garet is excused, but you other two are goobers. We were highly active that day because Emwun Garand opened up a thread reporting that his 6800GT went up in flames. [H]ardOCP posted a link to the thread on their news section so we got a ton of exposure. The link can be found here:

Hey thanks for the info. As always, you always seem to have the right answers for the right questions, lol. However, the links in that thread that depict the flambe'd videocard are no longer active. Do you happen to know where I can see a few pics of this debacle?

Besides the poster's avatar, you'd have to go to HardOCP's Aug 24th new archive located HERE.

They have just a single pic, found HERE.
