10 Million Visitors!

Postby IanKennedy » Mon Mar 18, 2013 3:18 pm

Sometime last night the main DITL site received it's 10 millionth visitor! Our earliest records of updates on the site date back to 1998 15 years ago. We started counting visitors on the 20th December 2001. Thanks for all the support, we are constantly amazed at just how popular the site is given it's a personal site run and funded by a only two people. To examine that a little deeper Graham has written just about every single page on this site and I have produced all the nuts and bolts that make the site work.

And considering DITL does no advertising. I see people linking to DITL quite often on other sites, granted a lot of Star Trek sites closed down over the last 5-8 years. To see this one still going strong is great!

The staying power and popularity of the site are incredible, and are most definitely a testament to Ian's and Graham's work. Congrats.

Thank you kindly. I still remember the day I started the site, back before it was even called DITL - it was the "Starship Reference Pages" back then, and made up of about ten html pages. Pretty amazing to think of how it's grown over the years.

I think I was 13 when I first found the site when we first got internet after moving house. I think Portal was the first thing I read in terms of Fanfiction.

Same here though I think I was 15 at the time. I think if was the same timeframe as the Utopia Plantia site.
