    Because of MWSF there has been an invasion of newbies recently (hello all & welcome! :D). The vB UID's are up to the high 27k's :eek: I am a 4k, quite old skool by todays MR standards.
    Anyway, just thought I'd do a little check, and it turns out we have 228 'tard up members here now, not bad eh?

    Hello fellow MRtarians (made that word up, like it? thanks :p)

    edit: changed title slightly ;)

    But not all of the 228 members who have over 500 posts have tars (for example me!)

    I didn't have a 'tar for donkey yonks either.... I zoomed past 500 (this was in the days when post count was still displayed) and I still didn't notice I was eligible... I have no idea how many posts I've got, somewhere in the 2k I think... I must check one of these days... :)

    WOW! Only 228 people out of 27,000 with over 500 posts?

    You can get people to register, but the tricky bit is getting people to post.

    PS. I'm member number 21701

    Even trickier is getting them to post something worth reading... :p

    Where do you find your number?

    Got it. #1733. Longtime member, but didn't really start posting until I got kicked out of the Apple forums. Ahhh, those were the days!!

    hehe.

    for a minute, when I looked at the title of this thread, I thought ed was saying there were 228 retarded MR members, with over 500 posts. :p

    for those wondering how to find their serial number, find one of your posts in a thread and then hover over your "Profile" button, the id number at the end of the link detail is your number.:)

    There may be a simpler way, but I haven't found one yet.

    I know, I'm waiting for the PC police to come get me for that one. But don't worry, I included myself in that list of 'tards as well.;)

    And it looks like I'm 16467. New school.

    I'm actually very suprised that there aren't more than 228 forum members with more than 500 posts. With the example robbieduncan not everyone is fully "tarded," so I wonder how many of those don't have an Avatar?

    Normally 10% are active, but it is certainly not the case here.

    Well I just checked. I'm number 12,485, at the mid point. Proud member of this forum.
