    First go to your profile, and then subtract the number of posts from 500. In your case, you have 241 posts to go (and at your current rate, you'll get there in about 70 days).

    I used to try calculating the days, and to post crazily with hopes of one, but I realized it's gonna be a while and decided to do the smart thing and stop my amateur spamming. It's annoying anyways to see that garbage. Now I'm taking my time and posting only about things that interest me. I'll have it one day, and then I'll have you all over for the party of the century.

    whats the big deal about avatars? Yeah, they tell people what kind of a person you are, but honestly...i think they're overrated ;)
    I shouldnt be talking, I loved the moment I realized I had more than 500 posts :)

    Instead of spamming, I started making tons of posts, but I made a point to make each of them meaningful (not that anything I say is especially meaningful ;) ). I made 20 posts on a good day, I was well under 10 on other days—I didn't always see threads I could make a meaningful response to, and it takes time to write something more than simple one-liners. It took me about a month and a half to reach 500. Problem is, that method was highly habit-forming, and now I'm not getting as much done. I've recently set Mail to stop checking every minute (I'm up to half an hour), to at least prevent the forums from sending me reply notices all the time. But tonight, my day is done and I'm slumming for a few minutes. :D

    I'm excited, I'm under 30 posts to go! I already have my avatar ready to go and everything. I should be there in a week or two (my posts per day is under-rated, as I only started posting January-ish. I lurked for a long time.

    ...and no sooner do you pass the milestone that IS 500 posts, then you'll have to think about ANOTHER issue - what to PUT in your Avatar.

    THEN there's the OTHER landmarks that need to be gained -

    like changing your status...

    Ultimately, just enjoy posting cool things, informative data, or pure comedy. That's the REAL point. That way, others can get value from your infinite wisdom!
