Back last October, on the 25th, we had 103 members online all at once. It happened at about 11.22 PM Aussie east coast time, and back then we didn't have nearly NINETEEN HUNDRED members, maybe a bit more than half that number! That was a pretty cool achievement but I can't remember whether I was online myself at that time, contributing to the number....and it was a fair measure more than the previous record, which was about half that.

Well, it's been a fair while since we've had a massive presence like that, made all the more remarkable that it happened quite naturally. Without meaning to be prescient, and just for some fun, I suggest we make a concerted effort to smash that record.

Who wants to give it a go? cheers

The nicest thing about the 103 users is that it wasn't planned.
OK let's try to beat the odds and go for a higher number.
I would propose Saturday June 2 starting at 11am Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
It's very difficult to have people staying up late or getting up early just to beat a record.
The best would be to login to the forum and stay logged in for the whole day.
Here is the map where you can see your time zone. Let see how we will do.
A good thing would be to have all users on line using the chat. This would be cool.
If people agree with the time and date, I can put a reminder banner on the forum.
I believe That I will be able to pull stats and give everybody an idea of which country participated.

Cheers,

Bert

Good point Bert,
Its the random factor thats the buzz.
(Groucho Marx - "any club that would have me as a member I would not want to belong to...) and maybe thats why I like the K's so much.
But give it a whirl and lets bring down the internet. Exponential curves and all that..... Twisted Evil

Perhaps there should be an incentive for our giant meeting. People in the UK will, if they provide proof of being on the forum at the magic time, will be entitled to have dinner with the queen.....I understand she is having some sort of party. Who will be more popular....the queen or the mighty K?

Big glass of Slippery Fish Cab/Sav to hand, awaiting the MotoGP qualifying from Spain on the Boob, warm puppy dog pressed up against my leg (she missed me), the bike in the garage dripping off from the ride in the rain, and a steady rain still falling outside, I await our planned meeting. Cheers to all who make this a welcome part of my day. I value and cherish each and every one of you who participate and put yourselves 'out there' for all Mighty K Bike aficianados, tinkerers and newbies alike. Cheers.

Well, I reckon we gave it a pretty good go, the old stalwarts on at the appointed time and enjoying a lively chat. In retrospect, at the end of the day the best way to go is to let things fall naturally as they do. Everyone's effort appreciated. You're a good mob, a pack of galahs at times, but a welcoming group for sure.

It might be time to give this a go again since we now have about 2300 "active" members (last time under 1900). It's been 3 years and about nine months since we last attempted it. Now I'm in the Northern Hemisphere and on the US West Coast - a slight difference from the OZ East Coast. We just have to coordinate a time that's convenient for the majority. Who's in?

I'm in, but St. Patrick's day may not be the best choice.  My favorite watering hole does not have Wi-Fi and I will definitely be celebrating there.  When/if I finally get home I won't be in any condition to be on line.
