    should be having approximately 689 users a day celebrating their birthdays... Each day. 663 of the absent users must be 1) bred in a factory, 2) paranoid, 3) lazy, or 4) unintelligent spam bots.

    Short answer is, was, and always will be... Very little at one time. I am just amazed at how many don't set, even fake birthdates. Is it lazyness, or the fact that it's the internets, and they just don't care.

    Or they're not sitting around on their birthday hoping people they've never met on the internet give half a shit. And henceforth, never set their bday date in their profile.

    Don't forget, there are possible duplicates counted amongst those, and possibly banned accounts too.

    I can imagine that more than a few just signed up in the hopes that there was a "here's the ROMs" forum only viewable to members.
