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.

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.

I'm wondering what percentage of those 10,000 are from GS.

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.

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

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