Funny you started this topic coolbreeze because I was just pondering some of what you bring up last night. The site was officially started one month ago Wednesday, June 25th so we're just starting our 2nd month here. We've been adding between 10 and 20 new members (sometimes more) a day although there's some variation. Yesterday, 7/26, we added 23 new members but on Tuesday, 7/24, it was only 12. Overall however, the #s have definitely been moving up week to week... although I expect we'll stay in this range until the next wave of 16GB Nexus 7s ship as you say sometime in August.
I should probably refrain from putting in a guess of when we'll hit 1000 since I'm an admin and have detailed stats to go by. I'm hoping that as our membership increases and page view numbers continue to rise we'll get some sponsorships for the forum that might enable us to get some sample products and accessories etc to periodically give out to forum members.
We really want to make this forum as useful, user friendly and informative for our members as possible so the direction it grows will largely be influenced with the kinds of things our forum members would like to see. As always if you have a suggestion for a front page article...or a new board or category please let us know. We've got some ideas of our own but of course would love your input. Also if there's any additional 'features' that you think might make the forum a better place feel free to suggest them. We added both the Google+ follow button and tapatalk after suggestions from forum members in the first few days and they were great additions that have been used by forum members.
