It's over 900000... Answered

Picture of

Well, my viewcount meter just kicked over 900,000.  Not bad for sticking around a couple of years and making cartoons downfall vids  poking fun at Kiteman ibles to pass the time. One of these days I'll make it into the millionaires club.

Winning contests ain't bad. Racking up a wardrobe of Robot t-shirts ain't bad. Getting featured ain't bad. Racking up a ton of free pro memberships ain't bad. Trolling spammers ain't bad.  Yup, not bad at all.

Anyone else reaching a milestone or getting close to their goal?

(for the interwebs challenged, the topic is a take on the "It's over 9000!" meme, look it up)

And now you're in the 2 million plus club! What a difference a few years can make. I'm dreaming of winning the lotto, but I'll settle for a million views and getting in the newsletter.

Nice one, congrats. The main milestone I remember passing was when my avatar went orange at 25 projects. Finally some street cred.

I believe you already have street cred. I'm still doing drive-by ibles.

Nice milestone, I have been following and liking many of your projects!

I have a particular fondness of your jalapeno recipe.

I reached one million today just after 4:30 PM MST!

That's great, you probably have real people interested in your work unlike me where I attract the spammers that I troll.

Yayayay! Congrats!

I'm getting close to 10 million, but it seems like it's coming up awfully slow. I need to stop looking at it and maybe it will go faster. :D

I always tried not to break my records.....they didn't sound good if I did, and they tended to ruin the player's needle

Didn't there used to be an option to sort members by total views?

It would be interesting to be able to break it down by *average* views per instructable...

100,000 a month? Gosh.

I wonder what Scoochmaroo's projects pull in at the moment?

Actually my analysis is pretty optimistic, I've reached 600,000 views in 6 months and 20 days, so to be accurate it's less than 90,000/month. Many of them have 20-30,000 views, and only one has more than 100,000. Unfortunately statistics don't work good for one year period, and for more than a few instructables selected.. so I'm not able to handy summarize the trend of my ibles...

Yay!

I'm currently at 3.4 million, which sounds a lot until you realise that Christy's Play Doh project is on 3.5 million by itself!
