'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A Pompey milestone reached!

Vital Pompey has seen quite a growth in what is almost a year under my control as 'the landlord' - yep you have had my 'ramblings' for almost a year already - but recently we have reached a milestone, with this being the membership count ticking past 1000! It is now quite a way past this in fact...

By doing this we have joined a select few in the Vital Football community to have 1000 or more members, but still have some way to go to catch some of the biggest and best out there, with the likes of Spurs and Villa, who are the Daddies of Vital Football, way out in front - but it can be done!

When I took over the running of the site, which without blowing my own trumpet I feel has benefited it a great deal, we had less than 500 members - in under a year this has doubled, with the growth mainly happening from the end of 2007 onwards.

We are getting well over 2m hits per month, with this being the case for the past 5 months in a row, which lets face it is phenomenal. We have a regular band of 100 or so of these 1000 plus members contributing each month via comments and/or poll votes, which is not bad - but lets get more involved guys.

Its time to kick on, lets increase these numbers in terms of hits, members and those that contribute as just imagine how much better - even though things are fantastic now! - things could be if more of us got involved? Around 10% of us do this regularly at the moment but just imagine what it would be like if we could increase this to say at least 25%...

best pompey site on the net!!! well done Rugster!!!
cheers CharlieChimes, but it is most certainly a team effort with this site - we all make it what it is.
Yes well done Rug, great work.
1000 members in the first year is a great achievement.
good work!
Good stuff ruggers and the team!! Like the team we all support, vital pompey is reaching new heights!!
Well done Rug, a great site for all us exiles to keep up to date with all things Pompey. Keep up the good work.
nicely done rug and every1 else tht makes this site 1 of the best sites on the net =)
thanks to you all guys, but as ive already said we all make vital pompey what it is...
i think the populataty has gone up because of when the site was on meridan when they were reportin about the fa cup tickets
As a very recent addition to the team, I must say I was attracted by the huge amount of sense on this site, allied to the passion that characterises blues' fans. Can't pretend I won't continue to add the odd inane comment (like is Glen Little the love chld of Alan McInally and...Alan McInally) but c'est la vie.
ever since vitalpompey started ge4tting better, portsmouth fc has started getting better... so lets all get together and make next season one to remember :-)
Good spot Carpet the two have gone hand in hand. Perhaps Rug will replace HR as the next manager!! Congrats Rug.
Can only echo the above hope to have more meetings before games next season.
1033 members now guys :-)
Am very pleased I found the site and I check it out every day, although I can't always contribute (cos I don't know what you are all talking about). Well done Rug, and to all of you who start the threads, which are very clever.
It shows how far this site has come, once upon a time (I think March 2006) I was the top contributor for ALL CLUBS, now although not as active, I am lucky to make the top 20 for Pompey. I'll just have to contribute more and get back in that top 10 !!
I've registered under 500 different names
Nice one Pompeyscum (lol). Yep, things have certainly changed in a year or so .. I din't think there's ever a time when somebody isn't on line.... It used to be poor old me throughout the night at one stage... Now there's a whole raft of you fellas on. Interesting thing is though we always still have upto to ten 'guests' on at times too. About time you guys got registered and joined in.
Good work Rug and thanks again to CharlieChimes for spreading the word and giving me the nod to the site......
Great work Rug, the friendly and usually intellegent banter on here was what attracted me. Made a change from just getting JCL after every comment written and Scummer, when I am not. Let's hope it just keeps getting bigger.
Well done Rug I,ll buy you a pint next time we meet if not i,ll have it any way
i will hold you to that mate, not sure if you knew before your comment but ive got my season ticket back for next season so you'll have plenty of chances :-)
Cracking news Rug ... North Stand ? - We'll see you in the Milton Arms no doubt....
yep north lower - my spiritual home within my spiritual home... well if your bro is buying my a pint next season you will see me at least once :-)
