If we want to get down to the facts, TSS has really been open to the public
for one year, but actually came online one week before November 1st. It was in that time that Lord Monkey and myself worked to get the site in working order in hopes that our lost visitors from the old boards would return.
Here we have a look back on what the first year of TSS was like in the numbers department and also some other notables.
- Kokuma was the first person outside of Admins to sign up on the boards. He has since deleted and restarted his account but remained an active member. The second person to sign up and stay an active member is Jiro.
- Kokuma was the first person to call Tamagotchi Social Sphere "TSS". He coined this phrase on November 03, 2006, 05:21:05 AM (Thread
- The first person, who is not an admin, to be given Moderation abilities is Elana on the Gotchi Space Raiders board (Thread
- The first group hatching event, called ""Only A Month 'Till Xmas" -GroupHatch in 11/25" on TSS was started by Kokuma on November 25th (Thread
- The first person to be banned from TSS was "Yanzi". The ban was placed December 28th, 2006 for offensive conduct.
- There are a total of 31 bans made over the past year. 9 of these bans are Noah, who still surfs the board almost daily.
- There have been no hacking attempts that we know of. There have been some attempts to guess passwords, but anything that was obvious suspicious behavior got an IP ban. We've had a very safe and secure year in regards to activity and software.
- The board has gone offline three times unexpectedly this year, all three times this was resolved by writing to my webhost.
- The member division of TSS looks like this:
Lurker: 584 (More than 0 posts)
Newbie: 63 (More than 10 posts)
Jr. Member: 12 (More than 150 posts)
Full Member: 5 (More than 300 posts)
Sr. Member: 3 (More than 750 posts)
Hero Member: 0 (More than 1500 posts)
- We have 11788 Posts in 1014 Topics by 667 Members. 248 of our members are signed up but have not activated their accounts.
- Elana posted the 10,000th post on TSS on September 06, 2007, 08:26:54 PM. (Thread

**Statistics Center Notes:
The People Online type statistics represent not only members but guests as well. Guests include people just browing the forum but can also include search engine bots spidering the site.
The Most Time Online category is unfortunately reset automatically whenever I upgrade the board software, so it is only a representation of the last 3 or 4 months of time online.
Under Forum History, March 2006 is a bug in which we have yet to fix. It means nothing, as the board was not created until the end of October.
