is this forum new?
when was it created?

I'm asking that because, today, July 8 2008, i just registered and found less than half a dozen topics   :-\

I think the Universe Sandbox is relatively new, so I'm guessing the forum will be too :).
As for when it was created, I wouldn't know.

The forum was created several weeks ago but for some reason everyone decided to post today. :)

When I logged in on the forum earlier today I was pleasantly surprised myself.

I think i know the reason.
I thinks it's because someone posted the link to this site on www.FunMotion.com , It's a site about physics-based-softwares, mostly games  :)

I've had over 20,000 visitors in the last 7 days and it all started when a friend posted a message on the something awful forums. So far it's been responsible for about 15% of my total visitors. Fun motion, while in the top 11, only about 1% (but still greatly appreciated).

It's also on Linkswarm.com. If it gets picked up by a site like Fark, your servers may be in for a beating!
