We have just hit the 15,000 Members mark!

SlotForum has been around since September 2003 and has been growing ever since then.

For info, we have around 121,500 Visits from over 42,500 Unique Visitors from 146 countries looking at 754,000 Pages on our site per year. This has been constantly growing and still grows.

Many thanks to all our members, without you the forum wouldn't be what it is - a truly wonderful place to come and chat about and share our passion for slot cars of all scales and types. Without doubt, the forum has helped the hobby grow and has added an online and social dimension to the hobby.

We have 19 site-wide moderators and 80 club moderators.

For the last few years we have been manually validating new members due to increased spammers and spam bots flooding the boards with junk. The credit goes to those mods who take the time validating new members and helping to keep the area spam free, namely Mr.M and zipp. Thanks to our regular mods who do loads of work behind the scenes sorting out trouble and trying to make everyone as happy as possible. Thanks to all the club mods for looking after your areas. Clubs keep the hobby alive, introducing racing to new generations and we will support any club as much as we can.

Thanks to our advertisers, without you we couldn't run our servers and services. Thanks also to our Plus+ members for helping to support the forum.

For a little more info on SlotForum, see our About page (rules, help, search, links, etc.).


Why 15,000 and not 18,928?



The 15,000th member is Gnasher, who is actually member number 18,928. The difference of 3,928 records are those removed due to being on spam blacklists etc.

Congratulations to everyone and especially the Mods who keep the site going. I have a laptop for work and three personal machines and Slotforum appears on the most visited list on each! What a great combination of deep knowledge, friendliness and a real interest in what our forum-mates are doing. Brilliant.

Welcome to Gnasher and I hope you enjoy the forum.

Cheers all,

Roger

Hey all,

I would just like to thank the mods and all of the members for creating such a wonderful and friendly forum. This forum has given me an abundance of knowledge, and it is nice to know that there are "others" out there (not that many hardcore enthusiasts in SA)

Strange that, I've never seen a spammer. Or were they deleted by the mods 5 seconds after a spam?


Heres to the next 15 000!

Cheers,
Chris

Howzit Chris, how are things in Cape Town?

You don't see most spammers as they are prevented in getting two feet through the door. With manual validation in place for the last two years, every new member is checked against anti-spam databases which are kept updated every minute. It takes a mod a few minutes to check new members and let in the good ones and delete the bad ones - this is done a few times a day, 7 days a week, by Mr.M, zipp and myself. If they do get in, then members usually report them and they are dispatched quite swiftly.
