    What happened on this date ?

    I wasn't sure where to post this , so I put it here .

    Any-hooo , the forum page says that the most users ever online was on June 30th 2009 . Almost 1900 people were logged in or checking out these boards .
    My honest question is , what was the big event that drew so many in ? I'm sure it's Roth related on some level , but really , is there something I forgot about ?

    closest thing i can find is that eddie's wedding to janie was announced that day on some sites.

    More likely we just had a ton of spammers on.

    I'm just guessing a flood of spammers. Probably nothing organic like people using this site for news.

    You might be partly right , Nick . SF thought it may have been a spam influx too . I'm sure that counted for a lot of traffic , but not ALL of it , y'know ?

    I was thinking it had something to do with a leaked song , a cancer relapse , or a band announcement that I'd missed from back then .
    Turns out I was about half right - Ed & Janie's "I Do's" .

    yeah i suspect the reason you couldn't find anything about it on here is that we lost a lot of stuff the first time we got hacked. they breached many things and i guess Freak had to go way back to find a backup that wasn't compromised. or something like that.

    I believe it was a combination of the wedding and a bunch of spam....mostly spam
