    FINALLY.

    After over two years of almost constant lurking, and rarely posting, I'm a 6502.



    Obiously, no one is excited by this, and there are a ton of avatar sporting macrumor gods, demi-gods, mods, and everything else, but I'm pretty pumped.


    I haven't contributed as much as I would have liked, because this is a tough crowd to know anything that someone else doesn't, and has probably already posted.

    I'm going to be swinging by the Help threads, and trying to help switchers and new mac users, just so I can give something back...*tear drops*

    For reals though, this is the only forum I frequent now. Coolest community of people, the best spot on the web.

    The avatar will, of course, be Led Zepplin themed.

    Cheers everybody!

    Congrats! I know it can be hard sometimes to reach 6502 status.

    My avatar is pretty decent, an old pic of Jimmy Page rocking a double neck SG.

    6502 sort of snuck up on me, so I'll replace it with something a lot cooler when I think of something clever. Maybe a nice pic of KK for edesign! :D

    The option to put an avatar up hasn't appeared in my CP yet, so I'm going to go do my laundry and grab some food, and hopefully I can put it up when I get back.

    it usually takes about an hour or so to show up, although it could take a refresh over night as well, its hard to tell, hopefully you won't be waiting too long

    Congratulations. I guess you know now that lurking doesn't help you get there. ;)

    I do realize that this is a very big step for you. Do feel some empathy on your part. I clicked on your thread out of curiosity, confused as to the content. When I understood it brought a big smile to my face.

    I have a real good avatar, but it will be a while till I get 500 posts, I have only like 100 now.

    Congrats on your posting and sticking around!

    And of course you know what really increases your post count. Posting in threads like these where absolutely no knowledge is necessary at all. :D

    Still working for that avatar...

    I lost count on my postcount. Ever since MR removed it from the main posts, I don't really care anymore.

    I was wondering what the mods would do: whether they'd help him with a tar, congratulate him, or move the thread to the wasteland (where these threads are usually tossed.)

    Just wanted to say I think what you said about this community is pretty true. Usually these online forums are full of a bunch of really annoying know-it-alls who aren't much of a help at all. But the people here are genuinely helpful I think. :)

    Well, now I get one more lame post towards my next level. What does all this mean?

    A funny title for a thread: "The post boost thread"
    I wonder how long it would last until the mods took it awy and gave out some warnings. :D

    It was fine while it lasted, however. :)

    Congrats on reaching 6502 and watch it now slip into the wasteland! :D

    hate to break it to you, but if this thread goes to the wasteland, your posts in it don't count anymore, and you'd backslide.

    and Vader - that thread would last about a minute. Two tops.

    Ahhhhhh!

    Not the wasteland!

    Oh, well, sorry if this was my fault. :(

    Why should this thread be wastelanded?

    Is there anywhere to go to find out what all of these numbers mean?

    So far I am completely baffled by the seemingly endless amounts of designations people can have. :confused:
