We don't necessarily think that quantity is better than quality. What I mean is, we would rather have a few good, solid missions rather than many missions that are there for the sake of being there.

Now, if you still think the site is small, you aren't looking hard enough! There are articles on the main site where you can read about topics submitted by users. The forum is (arguably) the bulk of the communication on the site. IRC plays a huge role in the social scene. The site isn't just about missions, my friend.

That said, I have heard rumors, stirring words from a far off land that new missions may be incorporated in this year...

You took it totally wrong. Why is the community so small for a site so helpful?

HackThisSite is one of largest hacking communities. We used to have an average 120-200 per day, but our user population have decreased, unfortunately. We are working on improving the community to bring older and newer members!

Well the way you phrased it didn't seem like you were talking about the community, since you only said "the site"

Anyways, what Monica is (as usual) right. Lately we've seen a decline in the active users, but we're still probably in the top 5.

criticalsecurity.net

Can't think of any others.

Unfortunately, hackforums is much larger but they are NOT - I repeat - THEY ARE NOT what anyone should consider hackers. I know everyone has their own definition of a hacker and reasons they think their definition is right, but honestly. All they do is pass around malware and "skript kiddie" tools.

<suckup>
I think the collective skill of their entire site doesn't come close to Monica's.

Are you a member on CS.net? Because i've been there since CS.net was HTS's forums before the split (and way before that) and i don't ever recall seeing "sanddbox" anywhere around. Also CS.net is a much smaller community, yet even more helpful and knowledgeable at times.

I have been to hackforums.net, and I can tell you the makeup is something like this:

.5% useful information
99.5% script kiddie tools (DoSers, keyloggers, trojans, rats, etc)

Everyone there thinks they are a hacker and yet very few are :P
