2015 Year on Bike Hub in Review

It's that time again when we look back at the year that was. The year in review takes a look at some numbers and standout performances (from users and content) for the year.

In 2015 one of the biggest changes was our name. This year we became 'Bike Hub' (read about that here if you missed the article). Although in many senses a very subtle change, it was symbolic of our growing up - a maturing of the platform and our community as a whole.

Thanks for joining us on the journey and helping shape who and what we are as 'Bike Hub'.

Here's to an exciting 2016!

Not as many times as Swen Lauer, UCI certified knobhead

Latent_Blue, Dec 18 2015 02:54

No ways, Where is #evans Thread... Surely that thread was the fastest replied thread.....

Come on Admin, #evanwouldbedissapointed if he's not in the top10

Latent_Blue, Dec 18 2015 02:58

So the top 10 people are making 10% of the posts!

Wayne moved to NZ

Didn't somebody die as well this year? Jagwill IIRC?

shaper, Dec 18 2015 03:01

I guess it is all about quality and not quantity ;)  :whistling:

fanievb, Dec 18 2015 03:16

Matt, how about the non-cycling related stats?

Frosty, Dec 18 2015 03:19

Interesting to see the list "most viewed".

Almost 33% of my total post count was in 2015. Scary!

Zatopek, Dec 18 2015 03:22

Maybe it is good NOT to know how many hours i spend here :)

Veebee, Dec 18 2015 03:24

I'm printing this and framing it since I made the list :P

 

haha I see I'm also on there... I moved from having the highest post count on the Opel OPC Forum to a #4 spot here for new topics... Too much time spent working and less time trolling the web, haha.

Rocket-Boy, Dec 18 2015 03:56

At least Swen made a top 3 in his own right... 

DIPSLICK, Dec 18 2015 04:00

When do they work or are they all pensioners??

Paul Ruinaard, Dec 18 2015 04:14

Would be interesting to look at he highest value item traded ?

Captain Fastbastard Mayhem, Dec 18 2015 04:28

Holy ****

Captain Fastbastard Mayhem, Dec 18 2015 04:34

Thinking about it though.... If there are 10 topics I'm interested in at any given point in time, that's 2 posts per thread per week day.

Fuckaduck

Latent_Blue, Dec 18 2015 04:37

Fuckaduck
