Today marks two years of Vanderblogging. Thank you everyone. On the run-up to the Vandercook centenary our forum has continued to enlarge the common store of proof press knowledge. Here are a few stats compared to a year ago: registered users have increased 171% (from 147 to 252), authored posts 190% (from 114 to 217), comments 173% (from 495 to 860), and post views 268% (from 33,984 to 91,138).
Perhaps most surprising is the 124% growth in the Vandercook Census. Last year 994 had been counted, now the number stands at 1240 worldwide. There are still gaps in the data and several members have yet to reply to my personal appeals. So again I ask, how many more are still out there? How many Asberns, Challenges, FAGs, Reprex et al.?
