This has been something I wanted to ask for a while, or at least figure out. What happened on October 13th, 2003 at 2:37AM to make 5,147 users be all online, at this website, logged in all at once? 2003 makes me think a year before the two games Halo 2 and Half-Life 2 were released, HL2 could have been delayed and caused a huge uproar (considering the five years gamers had been waiting by then) or it could be that Halo 2 was delayed. And since Halo 2 was and is so popular I'm pretty sure "everyone" was talking about it. Or was it something else? Who is a user who had been here long enough to view or be at such an event? What happened on October 13th?

the release of FH0.5 maybe? I wasn't here but as FH0.5 was release at this time and the Forgotten Hope forum is the 2nd most active forum here (only losing to spam...) could be it.

I didn't join till almost a year later, and the Halo 2 craze was pretty huge then. I'd say the Forgotten Hope release would be a good guess.
