Ok I know this is a tall order, but I was just thinking about how comicvine will be 3 months old in about 10 days and I really like to brag about what a awesome website 'we' (meaning you all) have built in such a short time.

And I like round numbers.

So do you think we can get 3000 active users and 30,000 wiki submissions by the 3 month mark? Or come close? If you haven't already invite your friends to join, post a mention about us on blogs and message boards. Email your buddies.

And if you haven't yet edited pages on comicvine -- but want to--, a good way to start is seek characters/teams with nothing written about them.

Go team!

Awesome. Here's an easy place to start if you dont know what to do.

http://www.comicvine.com/characters/&page=7&itn=hero

Notice the characters with no defualt image. Just paginate through that list. We have 39,849 characters/teams/location etc. And plenty with no default image.

I think good, neutral, and evil all agree that submitting is the most important. I'll get on it.

I think the users will be harder to get than the submissions.

I just joined today. I'll have to look into the submission thing. I'm not really a submissive person if you know what I mean. But I'll give it a shot when I get a chance.

Yeah but it's doable. Some of us users belong to other message boards and blogs, and might not have given comicvine.com a mention yet.

(to be clear I dont want fake users signing up. that doesnt help).

This is what we have: "25574 total submissions have been made to Comic Vine since Dec 12, 2006"

You can always see that stat here: http://www.comicvine.com/sitestats/

Some day I'll put up all our stats on that page.

For example since we launched in December we have collected:

15,171 character/team images

1,764 cover scans (ontop of the 50,000+ covers we started with)

I hate subs, its a pain in the ass, some of these people are really good at it, nice job. The Wonder Woman page is beyond sweet.

Swiped and added to my other forum signatures. If that doesn't net us a few more members, then we're at maximum capacity! LOL ...cause I'm everywhere Visa wants to be.

Well comicvine is officially 3 months, 7 days old now. And we're pretty close to the numbers I was hoping to hit. So congrats to everyone!
