Happened over the weekend--we got member number 50,000! You can see the number of active accounts here: http://www.banjohangout.org/myhangout/
When I started this site in January of 2000, I never dreamed it would be where it's at today. Thanks to everyone who has been a part of the site--some of you for several years, others who just joined today! Here's to more milestones soon to come!
(An "active" account is an account that is active and useable (not locked). "Active" doesn't necessary mean the person is actively posting on the site. Many people sign up but never post.)

You have created a wonderful site. I look forward to reading the forums on a daily basis as I learn so much from the wisdom and experience of so many banjo pickers. Thanks for all your efforts.

It's hard for me to comprehend that there's actually 50,000 banjo players in the world, let alone that have actually signed up for an account here.
Congrats and continued success...

Now at any time there can be like 2,000 banjo pickers at one time at the site.
