I make that about 35 hours from launch to member number 10,000

Massive congrats to all the GB staff. The dream has come true.

Now everybody just celebrate and go crazy!!!

Kojima can't contain excitement over GBs success and gets shitfaced almost immediately.

Pretty awesome, hopefully Giantbomb's hosting company can handle more members as the days go on, right now the sites at a crawl.

Grats gb staff!

It is astonishing really. I predict they will reach near to 20,000 within the week. Which is insane really. It just proves that you really don't need a big marketing budget to make a site popular -- just a bit of a niche and the most respected journalist in video games history.

But I think a lot of credit goes into the actual development of the site; I was a little nervous when I found out it was going to be essentially a Wiki but the site won me over as soon as I saw it.

The community is really awesome at the moment too.

It's all word of mouth. I think some people were just sick of other Giant Media Networks and wanted something a little more... Explode-y.

Didn't seem like there were alot of people when GB was in blog form. Then Blam!
To think there were that many users in the shadows.

If anyone can do it, "Giant Bomb" sure can make it happen.

That's awesome I wonder if this site will take over GameSpot's members in a year or two?

#38 Posted by Jax (461 posts) -

Awesome work GB! I always knew, from day 1, that would you make it. We've come sooooo far in so many years together - all of the memories --- uh I mean... wow. That is impressive though - it really is.

Wow 10K already? I knew people were anticipating GB but I didn't know that many were considering everyone used to hate Jeff since the Twilight Princess review.

I can't wait to hear the guys thoughts on it. I'm just stabbing wildly here, but I imagine they didn't expect this explosion of activity to happen so quickly!

Also, woot!! Here's to all of us posting like crazy and breaking the server! :D

Almost got 10,000!












The website froze when I tried to refresh again so I didn't get 10,000.
