This forum is very low traffic for hardcore-fans. The 2000 views are for 27 posts, that's about 75 views for every new post. I'm looking into this thread every time there is a new post and the counter goes +1, not instantaneously but at the next views update. I know because I used proxies to fake traffic for some time in the beginning when the forum was restarted (it's very common for forums/IG/Facebook to fake traffic/followers, you can even buy/hire loads of followers/likes to look popular and get more real followers and better marketing deals). The people here are likely the members (and a few other "fans" who have not yet registered), random passersby (from search engines), some KAAB employees (for killing time and curiosity), dealers and others (a few stalkers) who want to "research" or have deeper knowledge.

Of course that could change over time (and having an owner posting here could be part of it). There is usually a traffic peak around the month of the Geneva Motor Show when simultaneously viewers are sometimes 50-100 instead of normally ~10, probably because this is usually where information is harvested and served first. In the bottom of the thread you can read "Currently Active Users Viewing This Thread: 8" and posters will be nice/polite to you (even if you have a Bugatti ;^).

#110 had a build thread at the much larger forum Teamspeed two years ago:
Our One:1 build to delivery - Teamspeed.com
It had a whopping 97500 views and 171 posts over two years (5-600 views/post), and I don't think they had a negative experience from that thread, but all fans appreciated the fact that BHP-project was sharing the build-process.

Edit: I think you need to login to view attached pictures (linked pictures can be seen by anyone/"guests") In that way it would be for forum "members only".

Even the BHP guys that JC mentioned as a good example received a ludicrous amount of negative feedback on youtube for every petty little detail you could imagine, anything from "the camera is shaking too much" to "I hate the music". And these are all around nice guys that actually took their car to 240 mph on a bumpy, slippery runway and filmed it for our viewing pleasure. I mean... what more can you do? Jump a few buses? Drive through a loop? Chase down a TIE fighter through an asteroid belt? I don't know what would make anyone share anything on the internet to be honest because it's like spoon feeding caviar to a bunch of obstinate cats.

Like JC said were a small group of guys but the upside is there's a fair amount of privacy and we're really enthusiastic about the brand. Mine and Petar's brief exchange in this thread is probably in the top 10 of the "fights" we've had during all my years here so there's very little if any bs. Matt started the koenigsegg registry way back when. JC himself aka Sherlock Hemis knows everything and a little bit more about every single car it seems. Bumblebi is an admin on the Koenigsegg4Life Facebook group. Some guys have ties to the factory or people close to it. Some are spotters or lifestyle photographers. Others work in the industry. And others are just hardcore Koenigsegg nerds.

I would say about a little more than a handful of people are actively keeping the board vibrant, coupled with two, three dozen or so sporadic posters like myself who a serious lurkers and pops in from time to time to thank the brilliant detectives. That's the type of crowd you're getting here, the freaks and the geeks. If you want genuinely interested feedback on the build this is the place to be. We're not panty throwers but we will fan our faces to a fresh Koenigsegg pic. And yours look amazing btw.

We're all a bit coy at the moment but I suppose that's because in this setting you kicked open the door to Dungeons and Dragons game and asked the nerds if they want to pet a live dragon. One nerd says something about taking a photo. Another nerd kicks him under the table (cough cough). The rest have gone mute so to not mess it up. There's always a feeling out process when a new member enters a forum but more so in this case than others I'd say. I wouldn't read too much into it if I were you, it's not you it's the dragon.


I would also love some pics!
I don't think you guys understand what I was trying to say at the end of it.

Take BHP for instance. His/Their social media and my social media are two completely different things. If I was to do social media again down the lines some years later, it would be the way they did it...

They don't have a lot of pictures of themselves. They don't have pics of their homes. While vacationing and so on. Its a lot less private which is the way to go, from what I just realized... They can only have comments about the camera being shaky or the color(s) being the wrong choice... They don't have to face negativity thats personal and have thousands of people knowing where they live and so on... Thats what I am trying to say.

So in this instance for this thread, I will just take out all the pics of me and my friends at the factory along with the staff and post the parts that were seen and cars that were looked at. Keep everything private out. When I mentioned the amount of views it was for the fact that to me it doesn't make sense to post pictures of myself to strangers passing this thread by like I did before. Or other private things like PJs and yachts and houses and things like that. When sharing with the car world its best to keep everything private besides the car stuff.

I will have the pictures uploaded and posted here later tonight. Cheers

And I don't think we actually ''fought'', it was more like me not understanding your point at first and I apologised in the PM.

J_C, Davvemannen, Prash, Matt, Joey, etc. knows who I am in terms of dedication and love for the brand since the very beginning.

I never intended to start something that would disrespect your good will, Djordje. Since we speak the same language and I see myself like someone who knows a lot (without fake modesty), I thought it would be interesting to speak in Serbian about Eggs and supercars in general with someone who also knows A LOT and has a lot of great cars, since that's a rare privilege for me...

Anyway, have a good time and enjoy in your life, all of you. Hatters gonna hate anyway.

Nope. That's why I put "fight" in quotation marks.

Like I mentioned buddy, you didn't. I tried responding but it wouldn't let me. I have also been very busy and doing a lot of traveling. I check in here every chance I get.
