See the two threads below to get more background info on how Jerry Duke has been caught red handed lying about how many people come to his website.

RNW Multiple Screen Names Per Member

RNW Math Not Adding Up
www.topix.com/forum/city/rome-ga/TJQQ4OVNLLLR...

Finally, something the illiterate RNW leaders and worshipers should be able to understand. PICTURES! I agree that talk is cheap so I found some visuals to make it more interesting. Below is a screen shot from a message board with 12,700 visitors, that's right, TWELVE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED, in ONE day so everyone can see what a REAL message board looks like. The most ever online was 21,980! I'm sure Topix would look very much like that board if they had a display.

REAL Board with 1000 logged in plus 11,700 guests

Next is a screenshot from RNW showing a total of 18 visitors today and every day! Well, sometimes they have as much as 30 total members & visitors combined. In the last 12 months, the most ever online was 96! They seem to be very proud of that too. I wonder what happened to the other 1000 registered members. I also continue to wonder why 29,980 people that are claimed to visit RNW each and every day choose NOT to visit that wonderful RNW forum. Hmmm. So, if the above image is what 1000 members really looks like and RNW's board doesn't look ANYTHING like that, what's up with that Jerry?

RNW with 6 logged in plus 12 guests!

quit embarrassing us. The larger numbers that you are posting is the numbers that have visited the news site not the forum site. I believe that this has been explained before. I have no horse int his race just thought it needed to be pointed out when false information needs to be corrected.

Hello Jerry! Getting caught in a lie is embarrassing isn't it? When posting under that and other screen names, why do you always say you're not involved or associated but are just making a comment? It's just so obvious because who else would take the time to defend and explain something that specific to your site other than say, the OWNER? I believe your horse just came in last.

You idiots are hilarious! How many times must someone point out to your dumb ass that RNW is not ROmeWired forum? those are two totally separate sites.

Also you idiot, the members number that you quote (and yes, I am familiar with the forum design because we use the same company to host a tech site I moderate) are only registered users. Do you know that You do not have to register to go to the "FORUM" so that is only registered members and does not include guests. Go ahead you dumbass and go to RomeWired.com ... then, go to RomeNewswire.com ... Maybe then you will get a clue and see that they are separate sites.

Please tell me you are really not this dumb!

As I stated I have no interest in the name calling nor do I have any interest in what ever problems you have with Jerry Duke or the RNW site. I have enjoyed reading all the craziness that has gone on from some story printed in a news paper. A friend showed me this site and I have become very amused. It has taken a while to read it all. I just thought that I would point out that this has already been discussed else where on this very site. I do not wish to hold any further conversations on this site with any one who cares to name call or try to degrade some one or their family in which they dont even know.
As far as my comment made about stop embarrassing us, I saw this on a bathroom wall long ago talking about the village idiot.

Trolls are usually sad, lonely folk, with few social skills; they rarely make what most people would consider intelligent conversation.

Where do you people come from?

Red buzzard, I believe it is YOU that doesn't get it. You are living proof that pictures still aren't simple enough to get a point across. You are simply restating what's already been said and what is obvious. You are totally off the mark. Once again you have a made a fool of Jerry, RNW and yourself. Just because it says 1000+ members does NOT mean that there are 1000+ individual people that are registered. Here is a link to an entire thread dedicated to that topic with a direct quote from Jerry himself admitting it.

www.topix.com/forum/city/rome-ga/T26P8RIJRB40...

Quite a few over there have multiple accounts. But Jerry would like for everyone to think it's 1000+ different people. That's one thing, then there's the part about only 30 board visitors out of the supposed 30,000 news site visitors coming to the board each day from the news site. If you take a minute to look, it's the SAME user names logged in every day. Apparently you didn't read the last paragraph in the first post of this thread. Here's what I said again just to make it easy for you.

"I also continue to wonder why 29,980 people that are claimed to visit RNW each and every day choose NOT to visit that wonderful RNW forum."

Don't you think that's kind of odd Red buzzard? I sure do.

This image
www.topix.com/pics/up-G2MQK01P8O5B5BQV
showing 1000 member user names shows what RNW's member window would actually look like if there really was that kind of traffic on his board as he claims. Even if there were no members logged in at all, it would still show thousands of guests in the guest count field.

Instead, this image
www.topix.com/pics/up-9308KQ3PI2TR2ART
shows the real amount of RNW traffic day after day after day with only 96 people ever online at one time for the last 10 months. Good try Red buzzard but the evidence speaks for itself. Do you care to comment any further? I'd really like to hear your explanation as to why out of around 30,000 visitors from the news site, no more than 30 people, members and guests COMBINED, visit the RNW board every day.

Hello Three Rivers! You gonna belly ache some more and tell us what you don't intend to do but end up doing anyway? Sure, a friend showed you this site.

I just bet you don't. Now Three Rivers, you don't seem to follow your own rules about name calling.

I just bet you did. I wonder what else you do in the bathrooms besides reading the walls. Hey, you could start using the name Senator Larry Craig to post on Topix!

I am sorry that you think I am some one that I am not. i do assume that the comments were made to me assuming that you think I am three rivers.
A friend did show me this site and maybe I did troll a while as troll spotter stated but I am sure all those who post have done the same before they started posting. As far as the intelligent conversations, I have seen none on the threads that I have read which seems to have spun from the news paper story. Just a bunch of name calling and bashing of each other.
I do not think I have called any one names since I have only posted twice and this being my third. I guess I do what all others do in a bathroom, use it for its intended use. I cannot apologize for those who have made you and others on this site so angry but I am sorry that you are unable to believe others.

Okay, I'll go along with it especially since you didn't capitalize three rivers to throw us off. Since you're being nice, I mean civil, under that name so far, I guess I'll have to be nice because you are entitled to your opinion here, unlike at RNW.

After reading ALL of the information in those threads, I don't think it matters if the two sites are considered seperate or not. The fact is that the news site promotes the message board with direct links from the stories to the board and I agree the most interesting part is that out of 30,000 visitors a day to the news site, it's obvious that no more than 30 choose to click and visit the message board every single day. If there were more, the counter would show it and it would look more like that other picture that shows what 1000 visitors. I mean it's right there in plain view at the bottom of RNW's message board page! He can't lie about that. You would think the numbers would be all over the place with thousands coming and going but it's the same 30 people every day. How is it that an exact 30,000 people can visit a website each day anyway? I think there is quite a bit of wishful thinking going on at RNW and with the owner Jerry Duke.

I am sure that there is a lot of people which veiw topix which is nation wide that do not veiw the forums section. Myself did not veiw the forums and was not interested until it was shown to me. Some people may not be interested in this type of communication I know I wasnt. But after (trolling as you called it) I became interested and searched around this site to look at other posts and found a lot of good information. As far as what is on the RNW what does it really matter any way.
I am also still learning how this whole forum thing works. I am not the best speller and not that good in sentence structure so do bare with me.

ok, even I know the answer to this. That number you are saying is 30 each day. That stands for that exact second. It is a flowing count which means if there is 30 in there and you enter, the number will say 31, if you leave, it will go back to 30. Assuming that others do not come and go. To test this, simply go to RomeWired and wait a second and hit refresh, most likely someone will enter or leave and the number will jump up or down accordingly.

I just left there and there are 57 in there currently (At this exact moment). I could go back and there may be 20 or there may be 90, depending on who is there at that moment.

I do not know how to make this any simpler. If you don't understand then maybe someone with more technical knowledge than I have can explain it so you can.

Here is a link to the company that designed the forum that RomeWired uses. Please, Please go to that site, read about the board and even ask questions to the support staff there. That way, you can stop embarrassing yourself when you say that 30 people a day visit the ROmeWIred site and realize that the number you are talking about is what was mentioned above. It is simply the number of people in there at that second and not a running total of the day.

Now, please go to that site and read up before you make a bigger fool of your self.

village idiot, you're not an idiot at all. I see exactly what you're saying and they do to. They're just picking at you to get a reaction.

Oh yes he can and he did.

Hey Jerry, don't forget about when you lied and said that THOUSANDS visit your message board each day, NOT the news site. See for yourself at this link.

[QUOTE who="Jerry Duke"]
While there are THOUSANDS that frequent this board on a daily basis, taking this to court would bring in media from all over. It would be a lose-lose situation for the BOE...
defector said, "He clearly says thousands that visit the message BOARD on a daily basis, not the news site. So why doesn't the counter reflect thousands of visitors instead of 96? Jerry has told so many lies, he can't remember them all and now it's coming back to bite him in the ass!"

Yep, that would be Mr Tonkle speaking. The everlasting technical knowitall! Yet another no life that claims to not know Jerry at all but offers to moderate his site just to help out. That user name sounds like a child molestor.

I looked at those post you mentioned. The 96 number is those people who were on line at the same time. As far as how many visit in one day I dont know how they get the count. The other post stating that it is how many visit per day is wrong. I notice that here on Topix the numbers below are from comments made not how many people have veiwed the sits.

The point is that Jerry Duke consistently lies about both to his sponsors and the RNW family. Yet nobody checks up on his absurd claims. You don't need proof to know what he says is BS because it's so absurd by itself. So maybe they deserve being lied to.
