    Some Crazy Site Stats Over the Last Few Days

    Just wanted to share since this is just nuts.

    Ever since Rolling Stone and the VHND did a story linking to our official videos, here's what the site has done numbers-wise. I have never seen anything like this in the 12 years it's been here.

    In two days, Twitter followers went from just over 750, to almost 1,400 at last check. It doubled in two days from what took almost two years!!

    Facebook likes went from around 420 to over 600.

    Ok normal amount of users per day is usually around 2,000. On a good day with some interesting VH news, it's about 4,500...maybe. For the last four days, the site has averaged 15,000 visitors per day, and almost 500,000 pageviews a day!!

    Registrations on the forum in the last three days. Get this, OVER 300 including 180 of them today! I know that happened when I forced people to register to see some stuff because of the slow down, but still.

    And posts...the site usually averages about 400-500 posts a day. The last week, try over 1,100 posts a day, including almost 1,900 today!!!

    Anyway just wanted to share. Can't thank you enough for all the support, so cool to see so many old usernames around here the last few days, it's been great. I'm really glad there is positive stuff for us to share here, and to enjoy. It's about time!

    Can't thank you enough for hanging in there all this time in the face of
    so much heartbreak and bullshit, Brett. Looks the wait is paying off.
    Kudos and congrats.

    We are all so grateful for the home you have provided for us Brett. After so many years of negativity, how wonderful is it to have all the positive people around here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done and continue to do.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    This place kicks ASS!
    Plane and simple. That's why people come here.
    It's been around forever & is THE place to get any & all VH info.
    Be it when things blow up like the last 2 weeks or 6 months ago when I had a question about previous tours.
    It's here....ALL of it. The good the bad & the ugly.
    This place is an institution....really I don't think that's too strong of word.
    Perhaps dealing with all the BS day in and day out it doesn't seem that way to you, but it is.
    All the members know it, and now the shit ton of visitors know it.
    I bet the return customers because of all this will be pretty significant.
    And new voices can be a great thing. Be it new questions or that one super "Insider" that gets us all what we NEED a year from now.
    Take the good news and RUN Brett. You and all the rest deserve all the praise and anything else you can squeeze out of this latest landslide of good vibe.
    Regardless, I really appreciate this place. It brightens my day, makes me remember simpler times and gives me hope for the future of all music.
    Respectfully,

    Carmine

    That's awesome Brett! I've really enjoyed the site the past few years but now it's just crazy! Who really thought this could happen and they would be releasing a new VH album with DLR at the helm?

    I dreamed about it literally but never really thought it would happen again once things went south at the MTV award show.

    Anyway, thank you for the site and for all the great VH stuff we have to enjoy here.
