    Hi paul :)

    I just noticed that wilders forums are getting close to 100,000 posts.

    95,813 to be exact at this moment. Shouldn't take long to get there.

    What happens when it hits 100,000?

    Do we all get a free cookie?
    (I would like to know now so i can be prepared with my glass of milk) :p

    Hmm 100,000 posts...

    Maybe we should delete them all and start over.

    :eek: NO!!! :eek:

    Err, um.... Yeah, about that. It seems I dropped a zero. I really meant 1,000,000 posts.

    Sorry for the error. Math was never my strong point.

    :D

    Guess I'd best get to postin' :oops:


    Also, I think this is a good time to express my opposition to the deleting of old "update" posts.

    Detox. I found a "Loophole". Just delete some of your posts. You might not get paid for it but, it should improve your karma to posts ratio anyway. :D
    Watch it though. Don't delete enough to "demote" yourself. :eek:

    I got the properties off the smiley and the sites down. They've got some pretty good looking (just like you I'm sure) ;)stuff. I really liked the rant smiley. Very nice eye candy for posts. :D :D :D

    Actually, we've had far more then a 100,000 posts. In the "Update Alerts" forum, every new alert in regard to software X implies to former one is deleted. Certain forums, we clean out on intervals, etc.

    Of no relevance anymore; we've past that number in the meanwhile ;). Next target, as LWM stated: one million :cool:

    This is heavly discussed amongst the staff for some time now. Since we do have a limited amount of cookies available/spare, there might be a members contest :rolleyes:

    regards,

    paul
