A bit more than 6 months ago we welcomed the 2,000th member registering an account at the MRC. After some cleaning up, removing several invalid accounts, we slowly headed for the next milestone. As of today, the MRC memberbase consists out of no less than 2,500 members. For those wondering, the 2,500th member is a girl from the Netherlands called Nicole. We feel honored and pleased to see such a huge amount of MSX fans all around the world saying 'Hey, we're out here and we appreciate what you're doing' and would like to thank everybody who has ever opened an account at the MRC, especially to all of those who ever actively contributed to the contents of the MRC by sending in newsposts, reactions, forumposts, links or downloads. Thanks!  

With all these members, this sounds like a good time to do some demographics on our visitors. So here's the top 10 list of countries where MRC members live:

  1. Netherlands (516 members)
  2. Brazil (295 members)
  3. Spain (262 members)
  4. United States of America (183 members)
  5. United Kingdom (102 members)
  6. Italy (81 members)
  7. France (61 members)
  8. Argentina (59 members)
  9. Belgium (49 members)
  10. Finland, Japan and Korea (38 members each)

Unfortunately there are quite a lot of people who have not let us know which country they are from yet. If you'd like to check wether you did or not, just log in and check the My Account section, which appears under the User menu. Here, you can also check whether or not you want to see affiliate ads or if you want to receive the MRC Newsletters by e-mail.  

As a member you can join the discussions on our forums, post reactions to news, articles and photoshoots, browse the MRC contacts list, vote on our polls and much more. Do you consider yourself to be a member of the MSX community yet still don't have an account at the MRC? Why don't you register an account right now?

Mind you, if we had not been maintaining our userbase, we'd be at ~3,500 members by now...

There are hundreds and hundreds (and maybe even thousands) of russians that still use MSX they bought or got for free from schools and universities that upgraded their classes to PC. Thousands of others use emulators... but they are not MRC members - and I think I know why.

Let's guess together.

You think a ru.msx.org might help? Smile We'd need at least 2 (preferably 4) motivated translators who'd like to help out on that one. Same goes for the Japanese btw...

English the easiest language around? Maybe for you and me, but that's definitely not true for a very large part of the world population! Think of it: about 20% of the world population is chinese; /me votes for cn.msx.org Wink

As for it, fr, ko, fi or whatever.msx.org - If you would like to become an MRC translator, just let us know Wink

And no, there will be no klingon.msx.org. Honestly.
