I just answered my own question - I looked up account and then order history. And, it was April 26,2003. (hmmmm, 10 years is time to leave and my subscription ends May 4 - great timing!)

CM membership growth trivia....

I joined in early July, 2004, so there were 45,207 new subscribers in 14.5 months (approx. 3100/month). Since then there have been approx. 876,000 new subscribers in 105 months, or 8300/month (an average that I'm sure is much, much higher now).

One problem is that in order to report how many active members there are one must first define what an "active" member is. Regardless of what definition one chooses, there are bound to be scores of people who disagree. Then one has to decide how often to update the calculation. Depending on the metric used, the result could vary significantly from day to day, or even hour to hour.

In the end, what matters is each individual's perception of whether the service is providing enough benefit to justify the expense. The results may be better with a small number of "active" members who are seriously looking for a spouse than with 100x the number of "active" members who are not. And user intention is one thing no site can measure.

I know there are not a milliion active users...I am just saying someone is going to get member no. 1,000,000 (even if 1/2 of those million are not on here anymore), and I think they deserve something! If they started advertising it now, the last 50,000 would sign up very quickly! "Will you be the 1,000,00th member of CM? Join now and if you are, you get $5000 toward your wedding, when/if you meet your spouse on CM!"

The forums seem to be less active now than 4 or 5 years ago. Is it my imagination, if not, I wonder why less activity.

The forum activity tends to vary oer time, so it's difficult to say. It does seem the political discussions were much deeper back then (and I don't necessarily mean that in a good way).

So, since member 40666 joined CM on July 5 of that same year, it would

appear that CM registered 11,490 new members in a span of 70 days,

or an average of 164 new members per day.

That doesn't seem likely. I wonder if Patricia was an unpaid member for some time before making her first payment?

That $5000 would come in handy; it would at least cover the photographer. smile

Maybe they don't assign numbers consecutively, and leave

a lot of gaps.
