Larger than Liverpool

Posted on 02 Dec 2010 by Adam

Over the past few years there have been a few great member landmarks here at Zopa, for example:

Back in October 2006 we were officially “bigger than Basildon” when we hit 100,000 members.

Two years later in July 2008 we became “bigger than Brighton” when our 200,000th member signed up.

Another two years later in May 2010 we hit a whopping 400,000 members making us bigger than Bristol, as well as Brunei, The Bahamas, Belize and Barbados.

Just over 6 months on and we’re now larger than Liverpool, Leeds and Luxembourg and more sizeable than Sheffield as we welcomed our half-a-millionth member!

We’ve had a bit of fun over on the forum where members nominated the date and time they thought our 500,000th member would sign up. It happened on 1st December at 3.26pm so congratulations go to sl75 who was just a couple of hours out with his nomination and wins some wine for his efforts!

Next stop, greater than Glasgow…
