    Well in 23 days I will have been here for a year. And I am at a lowly 232 post count compared to a few members that have joined as recently as may and have 500+ posts. So my goal is to get the 268 post I need within 23 days. Thats about 12 posts a day. Thinks it's possible?
    BTW- I know this is a dumb an pointless post but thats #1 for today. :rolleyes:

    That's gonna be tough. Unless you just post in EVERY thread...

    "I agree" or "I don't agree" etc.

    But then you may find some getting a bit annonyed if u did that :D

    well, I know how you feel. I've posted maybe twenty times today, but I'm stuck at work and our AS400 is down, so I'm just fooling around all day. Anyway, I'm close to 100 and that cool, I'll probably get there at this rate.

    Verbose is right though, just posting for nothing is dumb, I'm at least trying to say intelligent stuff. Not that you aren't, but sometimes people just babble.

    Well, i've been here for a year now, and I'm still about 90 posts away from 500. I'm working on it though.

    Well, it'll be one year in 11 months, and 28 days. I'm not too worried about making 500, I'll make it, and I won't even have to start my own thread about it!

    At least spuncan realizes that this is pointless, so I won't flame him for it. :)

    However, I would like to see a few less crappy and ridiculous posts/forums. Examples: (1) the word game developed this morning, (2) Yes, I'll admit it, the signature forum (finally the damn thing was closed), and (3) this post I still remember from the article discussions:

    I mean, can people be any more immature? (Don't answer that, it's rhetorical.) Yeah, that was the whole post.

    At least I keep mine lengthy or fun (with some exceptions), but I would like to see fewer people with bulls!!t posts. At least make them smell half as bad. :cool:

    I don't know what is worse... spuncan creating this thread, or having iGavina cheering him on. :eek: :eek: :rolleyes: :D

    Well, I remember the good old days when I was dreaming of what my avatar would be. he,he.

    Seriously. As long as you find good conversation and post intelligent responses that mean something, then go for it. Just stay away from the "i agree" and "bump" type of posts. Keep it good. That is what people around here respect.

    Easy there, captain java. It was just an example. If things do get a lot lower than the word thing then that may mean some people getting really ticked off.

    I am trying to say that things that involve absolutely no intelligent discussion and are boring as h!!! need to be removed.

    The word thing is fun. And, I will admit, that was a rather bad example.

    But as long as we don't have a discussion, such as "Which room do you sleep in?", we should be all right. Keep up the great word! :cool:

    Ok King Cobra, fair enough, I may have got a little offended a little to quickly by u using the word game thread as an example.
    But I hear what your saying and agree, just lets not go nutz at people for the occasional dodgy thread or post, does it really matter? I don't think so...this is a public forum after all :D

    Wey-hey! At least someone liked it! :D
    And that's all it was for, for people to loosen up a little, unfortunatly it didn't really take of as well as it did in the forum I got the idea from...never mind. :)

    Good luck Spuncan, Its a big acheivement when you get there. My goal is to have 1000 posts by the end of the summer which for me ends on Sept. 20, our school opens late this year so I've got to get about 320 more posts. I wonder if we will have more than 75 with 500 by the end of the summer.

    Hey man no problem. I just try to do my part around here. keep it interesting, ya know?

    glad you liked the flaming. It's kinda fun to get fiesty every now and then. :p

    Hey spuncan. What's your problem starting this thread and not posting a reply to everyone in it?! you could have 10+ more posts if you'd do that. GET ON THE BALL MAN!

    you can do it if you set your mind to it...
