There's no way I'd refer any of my friends to Travellerspoint; I'd never be able to get away from them

Just a question; why the need for a membership drive?

I just looked at the statistics.

Nuie in Oceania needs a bit of a kick along. Oh, and I see that there are two members from Vatican City; the Pope and who else ?

We always like more members

Well, actually it's an idea of mine that was about a year and a half old :) Lately there's not been the need for quite the drive based on traffic and such, but like Pete says; we always like new members :) And of course we want to come up with ways to 'reward' existing members for bringing in new ones

Sam
ps. yes, any relatives/friends in any of those small countries that we don't have any members in currently? There's just 20 or so left on the 0 list!!! grrrr

The Quick Stats states that there are 50,095 members, however when I dumped the membership data into a spreadsheet, it only totals 50,094 members - doesn't the Pope count

Hmm, that's weird! Maybe one member isn't registered to a country... only option I can think of besides the pope one of course :)

I was just about to ask you if you were an accountant but remembered to check your profile first... And Lo and behold!

Maybe the missing member is called 'Carmen Sandiego'?

Maybe you're the missing member??? Since you are the one accessing the site, it doesn't count you... Or, you may be Carmen Sandiego....

Yes, I do in fact "count things" for a living. Not exactly exciting but it pays the bills (and the mortgage, more importantly).

Who's Carmen Sandiego who both Pardus and Isadora have both mentioned? I'm missing this joke, and that doesn't please me!

Hey, the variance in numbers just came to me - perhaps members who have been "banned" are excluded from the detail, but are still included in the summary stats?

Carmen Sandiego is from an old (?) kids' game show called, well, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?. If I remember right, contestants had to find clues and guess answers to figure out where she was hiding, and the winner then had to correctly identify a list of countries on a huge world map that covered the studio floor.
