so many newbies, so little time.

Is it just me, or do we have a LOT of newbies all of a sudden? More than we usually get at any given time. I keep seeing a lot of posts in the sex and relationships forums that make me suspicious that theyre not real. Im not saying theyre definitely not real, just wondering what others think. Is the site advertising more lately, which would account for more people finding the site, or maybe its just coincidence? Has another site closed which has led to people migrating here?
Maybe im just imagining it?

    I can only keep about 5 names in my head, so to me most of you are newbies.

    there has been alot of advertising. the site was also used as a project at various uni's across the country where students were encouraged to survey lots of people's oppinions on it - thus people who had never heard of it before became aware.

    Since the relaunch we have been giving TheSite a much bigger push (we're pretty proud of it now, see). Last week we officially launched askTheSite with a posh event at the Houses of Parliament and got lots of press coverage off the back of it. We of course want as many people as possible to find us and get the best information and advice they can - we are a charity after all.
    :yeees:

    Really? That's strange, I check numerous media outlets and didn't see a thing about this.
