19,000 Members and a New Forum On the Horizon

19000 Members On The ForumsKillTheCan.org and its community continue to grow at a simply STAGGERING pace.  The last time I wrote one of these posts, we’d gained 1,000 members faster than we ever had previously – 78 days.  Once again we’ve broken our own record.

We gained our latest thousand members in just 73 days!!!  We’re now at 19,000 members and show no sign of slowing down.  This is now the 5th time in our history (and 3rd time in a row) that we’ve managed to gain 1,000 members in less than a 100 day HOF cycle.

Here’s a look back at 1,000 member growth cycles:

  • 14,000 members – 1.4.2013 – 104 days to go from 13,000 to 14,000
  • 13,000 members – 9.22.2012 – 110 days to go from 12,000 to 13,000

19000 Members

KillTheCan.org Hits 19,000 Registered Members!

We also cracked the 2.5 million posts mark, not to mention 2,500 Facebook fans! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… KillTheCan.org is the best place on the web if you’re looking to quit dipping.  But don’t take my word for it.  There are 19,000 other folks who “get it”.

Growth Leads To Change

Growth is GREAT and it yields change. Tomorrow (Friday April 4th, 2014), for the first time in nearly 8 years, the KillTheCan.org forums will be giving a MAJOR upgrade. For the good part of the day tomorrow, the forums will be unavailable as we migrate to a new platform. Please don’t take this as an opportunity to slack off your quit – feel free to “post roll” via Facebook, Twitter, Live Chat, etc. ACCOUNTABILITY CONTINUES.

Thank you in advance for your understanding as we move through this exciting change. It will take us some time to learn the new system and make things look and feel the way we want them to, but after this transition we’re confident that our community will continue to be the best on the web as we march toward 20,000 quitters! Things will look VERY different but it’s going to be tremendous. Please pass the word!

In order to facilitate roll call, there will be a blog post here where you can post roll simply by commenting on the post – let’s blow it up!

As always, I want to offer my sincere thanks to everyone who’s joined us so far and especially to the staff for making KillTheCan.org the incredible community that it is.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!
