Since yesterday, Discourse knows 51 registered users. This number is not very relevant, but it is not arbitrary either. As soon as Discourse counts 50 registered users, trust level 0 is activated for new accounts (until now newcomers would get TL1 automatically. Still not very relevant, but I felt like celebrating this mark.
Also, it is a good occasion to peek into the Admin Dashboard. This is when these 51 users came:
First we see the silent launch, then the “big” peak for the announcement, and then after a short hiatus a more progressive increase probably due to word of mouth and the first links added in the right places. Since this instance was born, the only day that went by without registrations was January 13, a Sunday (fair enough).
Now I’m curious about how long it will take to reach the 100 users mark.
