Awesome!!! I wonder if it has something to do with the new forum upgrade format. Now people have easier access by using their cell phones and tablets.

I just copied and pasted this from the stats page on the forum web server. These are the stats for the month of March 2016: Total Billable Page Views For Month - 11,876,426 That is a new record for March! Last year the total for March 2015 was 8,116,288. Thanks everyone!

It's and outstanding forum with great leadership and membership. The information provided is always valuable, the members are always there for help and assistance. I remember I had a problem around midnight while running my trains on my test track and I threw the question on the forum and Marty Fitzhenry and Jim Barrett jumped on in there and assisted me all the way. I was happy, believe me, just because it was midnight and somebody was up and about and willing and able to help, but what...

As they say on just about every pizza box in NY, "You tried all the rest, now try the best!" For me, this is the best and I can get many opinions with good solid advice and few laughs thrown in from time to time. It's a truly an amazing resource and wealth of knowledge.

THE place for all O scale railroaders for sure...... And I wonder what the count would be if I had been hanging out here like normal and not using 99% of my spare time on my Mustang restoration????? Thanks OGR gang

OGR set another record because they earned it! This is because people can relate to OGR in a way that the other magazines cannot touch. Your people are out there in touch with the model railroad community. Whether its the dinners at York, the booth (and the picture) at Allentown, or the presence at Trainstock, the OGR staff is there, receptive , cordial and helpful. We know your people and they know us. You have brought people together and created a big family atmosphere. This type of...

Kudos to all the OGR staff, to you Rich, and to all the members who make this site so awesome. And because of this thread I can now understand why it takes substantial $$$$ to run the forum, and why solid sponsors are necessary to make it all tick. I think a lot of us take for granted all the stuff that goes on in the background that must work to make it all a success. Great info! So the forum is operated by Hoopla, and presumably all the information and countless pages of contributions is...

John, that's a very kind thing to say, but this forum is not growing because of me. It is growing because of people like YOU and the thousands of others just like you who post here every day. You should all give yourselves a big, "Atta boy!"

I was spending much time reading the OGR forum, so I subscribed to the digital edition of OGR to help support the forum. I still spend more time reading the forum than the magazine. I have learned much information from the forum that has saved me much time working on my layout. There is much useful information out there, and a lot of people willing to share this information. Thanks to all who contribute.

Rich: Your humility is admirable, but this forum would not be nearly as successful without your policies and active management. Other O Gauge forums have come and gone, I think folks tire of wading through the petty name calling and bickering that's allowed there. I know that after I look at one of those others, I feel like I've wasted my time and resolve never to go there again. I visit this forum multiple times every day and always find something of value. YOU and the folks that help you...

OK, I will be the one who asks. Please define billable page views. Is there a floating advertising charge to the advertisers? Is this the view count of forum pages or advertiser's banner clicks? Thank you.
Reply

Re: WE JUST SET ANOTHER RECORD!

Rich Melvin ·
"Billable Page Views" is the number that Hoopla uses to determine how much they will charge us for the month. We were on a service plan that allowed up to 10 million pages per month before surcharges kicked in. We just moved up to a larger, more expensive plan with a 15 million page view monthly limit. Good thing we did! The number is how many pages were viewed by forum members in the month.

Apparently this just proves that the many make this forum great. The forum seems to have gained momentum despite the few departed that preached its demise without them. Oh my.

This is an fantastic place. I come here several days a week after work and on weekends. Unable to contribute layout or modeling things just yet, but get inspired by all the ideas, info, and great stuff in so many scales. I am into O and S scale - but find myself drawn to the HONGZ forum and now the tinplate one also. Thanks and thanks to a great community of train enthusiasts.

And a big thanks to OGR for providing the forum and all the work needed to make it possible and also to all the participants that make it beneficial to everyone here. After getting back into the hobby a few years ago, I have learned more here than all other places combined. Probably the best place anywhere to learn about our hobby. I also thank all the members that share their vast...

This is Awesome!!!! Looks to me like there is a huge growing interest in our hobby.... and not a diminishing interest as some may want to believe. I'm delighted to be part of such a wonderful community as we have here on the OGR Forum!

It is awesome, but I don't think you can make that correlation. Page views of a hobby forum aren't a good indicator of hobby growth. It would be nice if it were true, but it isn't.

Rich, That is an incredible number. But you are not giving yourself(s) nearly enough credit. The work OGR puts into managing this is what makes it such a great place. In any group of people there will always be 1 or 2 that just want to cause trouble. You shut them down pretty quick. Lastly, were it not for the information sharing the forum provides and the amazing members always willing to help me my layout would still be 4x8 piece of plywood with some track and that's all. Thank you, Ed...

When I saw the stats a week or so ago...I was amazed!! Rich and I had discussed that we needed to let you all know since it is YOU that have made this forum so active. I am glad he waited until the end of the month for the final stats since in just about a hand full of days, we added over a million page views!!! MartyE....thanks for the "observation" in your first post above....yep, we are still here and growing tremendously. I have had folks write, call, and email me letting me know that...
