An attempt at the world record for the most comments on an online news item in 24 hours is underway, with the organiser aiming to get over 100,000 comments on a blog post.
The record attempt is being organised by Trefor Davies in aid of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and the blogger hopes to raise £100,000 for the charity.
Guinness World Records said the attempt would be successful if the blog post managed to get over 100,000 unique comments but Mr Davies hopes to surpass that number.
'With your help we think we can whoop that (number) and have moved the blog on to a state of the art internet platform to cope,' he said.
For every comment received, £1 will be donated to the charity.
Mr Davies added: 'It’s amazing how much support there is out there.
'Firstly people want to help the RNLI and then they are interested in being part of an online world record.
'It is also interesting to see that people who have either been rescued themselves or know someone who has have been making donations.'
Mr Davies came up with the unique record breaking idea when he was in a pub. The internet blogger promised to give £1 for every comment left by a member of staff on his website.
This idea eventually blossomed into the world record attempt.
Mr Davies wants users to leave comments about a person or organisation that has been an inspiration.
