Sorry, I should explain. I see this year's Barachan outage between Feb. and Aug. as brief (and it wasn't the first, lol). There was another DarkViperBara thread (the first) on this Patreon board that started around February 2017, making this the third. I noticed some old visitors were excited that the site came back, so I updated the numbers as if it'd never left.
What's funny is I wasn't the first to do it, as it'd also been done around 2015 when the site got a makeover (if my memory serves me correctly), and the threads got updated numbers too (Canine thread 18, Bear thread 7, etc..). It's just a nice little continuity thing, no biggie. ;)
Maybe someone here has better memory and can tell the story better? :)
