3,000 posts, 50,000 comments


Christmas has come early for us. This is our 3,000th post since launching Fall of 2004 doing just one post a day. The outstanding stat though is the 50,000 comments in the system. The team at Hack a Day would like to thank you, the readers, for bringing in all of our best tips and being part of this great community.

    yay us

  2. Trephined says:

    This is the 6th post for just today
    365*4 + 1 leap day = 1461 posts

    yes i’m hating, but we all know you don’t stick to A Per Day anymore, it seems esp. apparent in the past month.

    Other than bragging about “doing just one post a day”, congrats on the great site
    I am a daily visitor

  3. @trephined “one post a day” was mentioned just to point out that if we were still doing that we wouldn’t even be close to 3000, as you pointed out.

  4. A. says:

    Goot job! Will the “beta” label on the hack a day logo disapear some day? :-)

  5. divolb says:

    Do double posts count too?

    Might be good to mention how long one post a day was in effect.

  6. rvisokey says:

    I just have to leave 1 every year.

  7. fractalrock says:

    congrats hackaday staff, and to all of my fellow readers…

  8. coed says:

    maybe when they upgrade there webpage they would get rid of the beta. you could make a clone of this site using a something like articleMs script…
    but as far as content im not complaining i like the focus on hardware vs software. theres been some good reads, after i put a 3m illuminated projector in a eee box i hope to make it on hack a day :)

  11. Man On Fire says:

    quick, someone whine about how “this isn’t a hack”. we’ll get the comment count up to 10k in no time at all!

  12. Wolf says:

    I was really close to removing HAD from my rss feed back during the transition to multiple posters, but it seams like the quality’s come back, at least to some extent. (I still miss the single black and white post a day style)

    Anyway, congratulations

  13. grizball says:

    hooray for hackaday! woohoo!

  14. meznak says:


    I think he was referring to having started with one post a day; not implying that they still do.

  15. ula says:

    congrats! keep hacking

  16. Pedro says:

    ~1000 of the 50,000 comments were “it doesn’t have enough LEDs, love from steve”!

  17. drew says:

    congrats, um.. your welcome? idk.

  18. Simplybik says:

  22. aris says:

    Hey! You guys did that miscalculation on purpose to get more comments!! Count +1 here then…

  23. strider_mt2k says:

    A day without hackaday is like a hack without a day…with…hack.
