I was experimenting with Google and internet generally and trying to find any patterns online. I came to this site http://www.savvyseams.com/index.php and there, in the Links & Resources, there was a link to Craftster. It was one of the first boards I ever saw and the very first one I really liked. For a while I was just looking through it, especially Craft challenges (I loved the thrift store clothing one), but then, when I realised it's very easy to sign up, I did.

Waterlooite and fellow Laurier student as well. I don't read the cord though, so I missed the article in print. Alas. Smiley

I check BoingBoing at least once a day, and saw this post (http://www.boingboing.net/2006/10/19/great_bookmod_encycl.html) which led me to this website (http://craftzine.com/), and consequently their "community" page that referenced Craftster!

Once here, I could tell it was the most comprehensive creative site I'd seen, so I signed right up!

I noticed Craftster was unusually slow tonight, so I went back to the main forum page to see how many people were online. 

There are almost 4000!   Shocked

I just noticed yesterday (because I was procraftsternating) that Craftster posts the record number of people online.  I don't know why I took notice, but I did, and it said there were something like 1999 on 2/18/06.  Well, this is double that. 

What's up?  Was Craftster on Oprah, or something?  (As a former bookstore employee, that's one of my first reactions when there's a sudden rush on something.)
