I presume Taiky is from the South and not the other Korea?

Judging by how this site reach 50,000, only 6 months ago. I wonder if we can get to 70,000, before this December! :)

Congratulations. Those are some interesting statistics. For such a small country as the Netherlands there are a lot fans registered here on brickset. Like captainrex I'm also curious about how many people from different countries are registered. Do you also have statistics about which country has the most active users (logins/pageviews)?
