all about beards: site renovations

We are all about beards.

Today all about beards launched phase one of our site renovation at http://www.beards.org !  Please excuse any inconvenience should you find something not working during this transition.  Everything is pretty much working now, but small issues may still be found here and there until all are identified and eliminated.  More changes and improvements are on the way.

Our nineteenth anniversary

All about beards' nineteenth anniversary
On January 17, 1996 a modest web site named all about beards made its debut on the web. Starting out on AOL web space — the now defunct “http://members.aol.com/beardguy” — the site moved to its permanent home at beards.org on January 20, 2005. Profound thanks go out to all of our friends and supporters over these years!

Twenty-five million plus 18 plus 60,000!

Twenty-five million beard gallery views
We hit 25 million on the gallery counter at 01:43 AM PST (Pacific Standard Time) on January 18, 2014! This counter began when the beards of the world gallery was first moved into the current gallery system on January 26, 2006. The real count is unknown but higher because of deletions and other roll-backs over the years. Still, it’s worth taking note each time we’ve displayed another million beard photos via the gallery.

We just celebrated eighteen years of all about beards the day before, on January 17, 2014. And just before 10:00 PM PST on January 16, 2014 we reached 60,000 likes on our Facebook page! Let’s keep growing!

25 million screen shot

Oh, and whose photo was the 25 millionth? It was Jess!

twenty-four million

twenty four million!

The beards.org galleries hit twenty-four million views yesterday, September 30, 2013.  I completely missed it, however, and did not notice it until hours later.  Because I didn’t see which photo was the twenty-four millionth, I’ll mark the occasion with another photo of Vincent.  Thanks for your interest in all about beards!

twenty-three million

It took a bit longer than expected, but we’ve bumped up the beards.org gallery view counter to twenty-three million. It hit the new milestone around 8:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time, yesterday, the 26th of May. I missed seeing which was the ceremonial twenty-three millionth photo by just a few minutes. So I’ll just put up another photo of Vincent to mark the occasion!

Thanks for your continued interest in all about beards! Keep growing!

twenty-two million already?

I knew the view counter on the gallery was nearing twenty-two million and should hit it in the coming days. Actually, I had hoped to reach it before the end of 2012. The beards.org gallery view counter hit twenty-two million already this morning some time while I wasn’t expecting it. Therefore, I did not see which was the lucky twenty-tow millionth photo viewed. So I’ve just selected an image from Andy‘s album to commemorate today’s milestone.

This counter started at zero back on January 26, 2006. That’s when the gallery moved to the current software package. The true count is not known because of database glitches and other various subtractions over the years. There are also some legacy photo galleries within the site that remain outside the main, whose views are not counted in this total. We can say, however, that the true count is greater than the number displayed. And where can you see this counter? It appears here:
