This is pretty awesome. Thanks, @Juulz!

Of course, this doesn’t include all the members that either didn’t realize we moved (like uh… me for a few months), of those that are Online-phobic and don’t post/join message boards.

If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say that we are 2-3x larger than the boards show, people just dont post or make themselves visible.

Still, nice information to have and see for shouting purposes. What would also be nifty to know would be the locations of all these members on a pin map… See the amoeba that is OTG spread acros the globe

That would be a cool idea! Those who wished to opt in could have their pin appear on a world map.

I agree! That would be really cool! Or just a pin without the names then permission wouldn’t be necessary… :slight_smile:
