... does this mean there where 10000 new registrations during the last month?

Obviously some people have not set a handle in their control panel. ;-)
I just tested it and was assigned a "99xxxx" number. I checked the profile of some account that was registered 1 month ago with a 98xxxx number. March last year was apparently 92xxxx. Assuming it is only a sequential number without any other logic behind, does this mean there where 10000 new registrations during the last month?

Forums is tied into the Profile system. Anyone who registers an account will get a forums handle, however, very few will actually come to the forums. It is quite possible to have 10,000 new accounts created overall per month
