Upon pressing the 'Submit New Thread' button, our forum will have reached a new milestone of 300,000 posts. We have doubled in size since November 2005.

We, the staff of the World Affairs Board, thank you for your continuing contributions. May we continue to grow and reach further milestones.

On behalf of the WAB Staff,

BLASPHEMER!!!

That's Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I can't believe there's a single soul on this earth who hasn't seen that movie yet.

What are you gonna do? Bleed on me?

Well I've tried to help raise our profile by expanding our wiki article with some deeper description of the forum. I had thought about taking a more comical tone and including the cult of the butter cookie, the trouble the mods have had with fakers and trolls, and the great Indo-Pakistani flame wars that have been fought over the last few years. Then again I thought this might make the board look bad, I was going to ask Duke what he thought?

After having custom-designed skin made, we are considering advertising the forum. I have experimented a bit with Google AdWords, running ads on a couple military forums. They were CPM, and the CTR was rather disappointing.

As for a description -- I like to think of WAB as a more unique style of forum. I consider the forum to be a fully hybridized political-military forum.

It's a place where both the political and military/defense enthusiast can be highly active, participating exclusively in one subject if they're not interested in the other.

WAB Breakdown (post %)
Military/Defense 45%
Political 35%
General & Other 20%

Coupla things don\'t know why you guys haven\'t bothered with is to accompany a website along with the forum.

You guys had that crazy news-bot, could\'ve started a dedicated news section on WAB.

Which leads to a host of community related activities, like galleries, chat, newsletters...

There will be a portal along with the new skin early next year, with a dedicated news page. Other features are yet to be determined.

I was gonna ask if you go for spray on Tans, but somehow you don't seem like the type!

Your Porsche is being wasted in America. You can't even speed like you do in Dubai. They are designed to be raced!

Goto google videos and search on Dubai, you'd find many.

Or perhaps Dubai, race

Recorded this one:

Twins79 are a coupla porsche crazies... But this wasn't them racing. The movie was recorded in their car, a nice big fat ass Nisssan Armada.

Missed this... the 20th ranked forum has nearly 20,000,000 posts.

As for being ranked on big-boards.com despite not having 500,000 posts... we do beat out alot of larger size forums in activity, this could be the reason why we are listed.

In weekly activity, we beat 160 forums with over a million posts. At least 20 of those have over 2 million posts, 5 with more than 5 million, and 2 with 8 million.
