    Today I hit 2 million posts at hackforums.net. It's an awesome milestone considering I hit 1 million in June. It took me over 2 years to get to a million and just 7 months to hit 2 million. I should do about 2 million posts per year at the current level. At TheBiggestBoards.com HF is #350 for all forums listed and #3 for MyBB. I hope to be #2 for MyBB within a year.

    I just wanted to thank MyBB for their great software which imho contributed to the success of my forums by being an easily managed and extensible software.

    I can only hope more admins chooe MyBB based on the many success stories of MyBB forums.

    I don't promote the site. It's organic growth.

    In it's genre it's #1 by far. We are 10 times bigger than the closest competitor. What DP does for webmaster forums HF does for the hacker community. HF is actually more active than DP in the posts per day stats.
