This is it.
My two thousandth post.

My one thousandth post - December 15, 2003

Let's see here.

Since that post, I haven't posted so fast.

1000 posts
182 days

5.49 posts/day

Well then. We'll see if there'll be 1000 more; my Tireless Rebutter habit has been suppressed with time.

Nice work, sir! I have (sadly) noticed fewer of your posts recently. [Frown]

That said, you're still far out-pacing me, although all of this free time at work has caused something of a spike in my recent posting habits.

I dream of one day having a post count higher than my member # [Big Grin]

oooo! Just noticed 555. Not as nifty as 2k, but it's still fun!! [Big Grin]

WP, I joined, what, 5 months before you did, and I have only half the posts. That's because I'm old and I can't keep up. [Wink] I never thought of myself as "quiet", but compared to you I'm downright shy. Compared to KL, I've taken a vow of silence.

Edited to add: Seriously, the "Ornery 8" thing cost me six months, so time wise we are even. I guess that means you are prolific.

Size doesn't matter. On the other hand, the ability to blow long and hard...

(kenmeer, backing away carefully and wearing something very much like this:

Grizzly Proof Suit

Read 'Testing On Suit' as bottom of url site page before attempting revenge [Wink]

To those who haven't seen the 1996 Peter Lynch documentary on this called Project Grizzly, I inform them that it's a slightly boring half-hourish film that nonetheless is peppered with moments of AMAZING scenes, none of them gory but several of them hilarious. The Oscar clip is the Big Test. It being estimated that a full grown grizzly can deliver an impact with a force equivalent to that of a humongous big redwood-sized log smacking into one by swinging down in a 90 degree arc by two ropes hanging from a VERY big tree, we see Our Hero, wearing the suit displayed at the url above, standing erect as he waits for the log to smash into him, which it does, and which he survies just fine. As he awaits his possibly final moments before the log descends, he calmly/nervously sings, in a slight variation of the schoolyard Nah-nah-nah-Nah-nah song we sing when we stick out our tongues at our peers, these words:

"The log is going to bump me..."

It is slapstick/pratfall humor at its most extreme. Using rewind, one can replay this over and over and laugh hysterically each time for a MINIMUM of ten times in a row. When that log swings down and forward and knocks him backward like a chess pawn, one HAS to laugh... Michael Moore should take note of this for his next movie...)

But he overtakes Everard (!) by Feb 24, 2006 [Eek!] (unless his arthritic fingers fall off)

The Infernal Machine by Kenmeer Livermaile

There are still guys who crawl their way through Harvard with readers, a secretary, and houseboy, too. I bet you've got a whole staff of researchers and writers, WP.

"I bet you've got a whole staff of researchers and writers, WP."

He does, but he's suing for a refund. A roomful of typewriting monkeys in hose and doublet (the apes, not the mechanical secretaries) is NOT what the Rhodes scholarship world dominion committee had promised him.

He should have gone with Skull'n'Bones: they have real golems: black-listed Jewish writers from the McCarthy purges who still haunt the ghost-writer halls. Having been denied reality so long, they've become so surreal they can't die... except by awarding them the Pulitzer Prize or Screenwriters' Guild Award.
 
Posted by WarrsawPact (Member # 1275) on :
 
Haha, good posts all around.

I won't even make it to July 15. I have too much school to be posting 7+ posts/day.

I hit 1000 posts today!

Posted by javelin (Member # 1284) on :
 
Damn, did the math for you in the other one. Here it is again:

quote:

You joined Jun 2004 (see the bottom of your posts for where I got that).

The number of posts = Today is June 2005. That's one year. There are 365 days in a year. 1000 posts/365 days = 2.74 posts per day.

How's that?

Does something smell good in here?
 
Posted by canadian (Member # 1809) on :
 
haha

Thanks, jav.

Math was never my strong suit, but you make it look easy. And me kind of dumb, but I can handle it!

I never even noticed the registered date at the bottom, even though I always saw the 'posts' number.

How crazy is that? [Frown] [Roll Eyes] [Frown]

Heh, ok...

Post count doesn't mean nearly as much here as it means in a lot of other forums I've been to; I kinda like that. But then, who doesn't like the occasional reminder of a landmark? That's what this thread is for.
 
Posted by halfhaggis (Member # 809) on :

Perhaps I'm jealous. I suppose I could start a Lurkers Thread to compete with your Prolific Posters Thread.

Fascinating observance of a great virtual race to nowhere.
I ask the following without particularly focusing on the starter of this thread or anyone else at Ornery...but I do notice this phenomena on a wide variety of Forums (or is that "fora").

What's the end goal or purpose of keeping track of your post count, and seeking recognition for it? Why do people feel the need to congratulate others for reaching some arbitrary number of posts?

Should we give a person that reaches some arbitrary post count...a pencil with their name on it?

lol
 
Posted by Dave at Work (Member # 1906) on :
 
I suppose that it is an indicator of how much a member actively participates on the forum. Taken with other facts you can probably figure out other things about the member. Taking into account the amount of time someone has been a member along with their total post count could tell you haw active that person is on the forum. This can of course lead to silly comparison envy and nonsense posts made simply to inflate ones post count, but I generally don't see that on this forum, though I have seen it elsewhere. On this forum I find it to be a simple way to catch up on who the active members are when I have been away for a while.

Of course when combined with other statistics, like the percentage of a posters posts that start threads as compared to those that respond to threads, it can lead to some interesting observations, but I don't see those kinds of statistics being tracked here.
 
Posted by Daruma28 (Member # 1388) on :
 
I've reached the all important post number 3,369!!!!!!!!!!

Darn...I just realized that by posting this, I'm now at post number 3,370.

My short stay at the all important post number 3,369 was sadly short lived, and I did not have a real chance to bask in the glory of well wishes and congratulations from you all for such a landmark achievement.

Now I'll have to wait until I hit the next great landmark post number, 4,982. [Frown]

Dave,

What exactly were you saying you could determine? You lost me. I don't know about anybody else, but as someone who does start threads, I try to be sure a subject is important before I start a thread about it. Which is why I suggested the MC thread, so we wouldn't waste forum time on "How you doing? How'bout them Astros?" threads.
