Mefi member count discrepancy June 19, 2001 8:20 AM   Subscribe

Someting simple, actually (I hope). On the front page of MeFi, if you're not logged in, the member count is 9342. When you're logged in the member count is 9075.

Is this the difference between the point at which new membership stopped and those that have accounts through the 5K? Just guessing.

Obviously, MeFi is bigger on the outside than it is on the inside.

As one of the 267, though I can't claim to be the spokesperson, I signed up right here. I decided to jump in after being a long time voyeur. I thought I was a secret member.

The answer is obvious: there's a wormhole in the space-time continuum!

No. Eddies in the space-time continuum. And those are his accounts.

I hope Eddie can get back out of the space-time continuum. Who'd want to spend his life in there?
