    Our ranking with Google is good, an is getting better. The new software we will be using soon will help with that because it is better at Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

    There really isn't an Internet chart ranking per se, but every day we stay active our value will increase. As new posts with useful info are accumulated, search engines (Google) will find that info giving people more opportunities to find us. Not to mention many history sites have gone away over the years, so by simple attrition we are in a better position than previous.

    Extra salutes are a nice option, but I'll mention again we are switching to new software. I'm not sure the salute system we currently use will be anything similar to what we will have after the move. More than likely all salutes will be removed during transfer.

    Kai, nice to see you posting again.

    I'll be home after the 24th. I should be more active then. Meanwhile, try to go on without me.

    (For which I am jolly grateful, btw)

    It does include those Ricky. I'm quite happy to keep this information online and available wherever possible.

    As you are aware, all the older ones from Christian A's first version of Tanks in WWII are here, which is where your profile came from. I owe a huge thanks to Christian for letting me get the database and see if I could restore it. There was a second iteration of Tanks in WWII which was spun up then taken offline, unfortunately I've so far been unable to get my hands on that one.

    In fact I still have have a database containing another 200,000+ posts still to import from the now defunct WorldWarwZone.com. I've also tried several times (unsuccessfully) to rehabilitate 1.JmA as well as WWIIReenacting, both of which are now offline. Only mentioning these in the hopes someone in the know will connect me with someone who might have the site database stored on a drive somewhere.

    Makes my 14000 (1.5%) seem rather paltry. Well done, Otto. Cheers to Kai as well.

    14,000+ puts you at the 8th most prolific poster out of all 34,000+ members. Combine that quantity with the general quality of your posts, well let's just say I'm appreciative of your contributions.

    I always prefer quality posts over quantity, but quantity does bring with it a quality of its own. Especially when we are approaching a million of them.

    Nah,
    That's a massive load of posting.
    What I am proud of myself is the lesser known details what I have done.
