Quantum leap forward for this site?

Not so long ago Benzworld was a dead city by 10pm (my time). Very often I was the only active member. Currently reads 76 members and 334 guests. This is an enormous improvement - how come?.

Well, some of the guys have cut off their pigtails, lifted their dresses and jumped ship - as we know. Yet the activity registers here have quantifiably sky rocketed. Seems like bullshit to me. Maybe if we log in - the site now keeps our name up for 12 hours?.

Could be, argh what a saturday night! Too damn cold to go out down here 5 of the 6 people in my flat are home, and the one that is out is working. I think thats why the user rate is so high a lack of a social life LOL

NZ Benz: Hope you have Sky. Crusader vs Hurricane final - who would have thought!. Btw, real Winter hasn't arrived yet - July August are the bitch months to not look forward to.
Nutz: I agree, the register must NOW be a lie teller.

Edited to add the word: NOW.

That's what I was thinking. It certainly helps to raise advert rates when there appears to be heavy traffic on a site.

It is because conservatives have begun to post on this site and now there are topics worth reading!
