    Hey gang,

    We hit a milestone today. This morning we crossed the threshold and reached 1,000 posts. Not bad for a relatively new community.

    But the best part is the quality of the posts. They are thoughtful, encouraging and generally fun.

    We've got a great community here, and I'm really proud to be a part of it. I want to thank all of you for making this a truly special place.

    Very glad to be here, and to claim responsibility for a tiny-small part of that number.

    Can't wait to see more, and watch this community grow, and get to know you all!

    Congrats all!

    That's so terribly awesome! I appreciate the feedback I have gotten so far from everyone, and I hope people can at least tolerate my comments enough to still post 1000 more! :)
     
  6. Hearty congratulations to all those who've made this forum a success. Too bad I wasn't here to see it, but that's what happens when your new PC won't connect to the worldwide interweb. I'll raise a pint of amber nectar to one and all, it's a rather fine community.:D

    Hmm… wonder how much faster we'd be hitting milestones if you added a subroutine that counted my usual posts as five (or so) average-length ones.… :rolleyes: ;)

    Hurray! Being present for this milestone, and the beginnings of this site, makes me long for the future days when I can complain about how the new guys ruin things and the site was so much better back in the day! Sarcasm aside, this is great and I'm happy to see this community grow.

    Hehe... I always enjoy your treatises, Ravana. Each one is bursting with insight and 12 delicious fruit flavors. ;)

    Thank you. Uh… twelve? Oh, dear. The Secret Recipe only has nine ingredients. Did I mix up the Malus sieversii and the Malus synaesthesis again…?

    We are now at 183,365 posts it's amazing to look back at the beginning of this forum to the point when they only had 1000 posts.

    I still remember the day that we hit 1,000 posts. We celebrated that night. It's hard to believe that we'll be approaching 200,000 within the next few months.

    I joined in July 2011, six months after the first milestone and now I look at this site and how much we have all contributed to the games, research, and writing tips and it's too big to read them all. NICE!

    In fact, I've often searched back in my own posts, to re-give the same advice I know I've posted before, and it's like finding a needle in a haystack sometimes. I've started a word doc of my best tips, so I can easily find the things I don't want to lose. The post right after my dog died, where we talked about characters dying and how to write the scene; a particular favorite post about show/ tell where I mentioned cutting a scene because the whole scene was a "tell"; writing a musical character, where we talked about incorporating the music into the story, and so many more. I'm glad this site is so huge but finding things can be tricky. I wish we had a sort of archive. I've archived about half the Iron Pen challenges because they mean so much to me, but posts are harder to archive.

    Hi,

    I just looked - I'm coming up to a thousand posts of my own. Clearly I'm spending too much time here and not enough writing!

    Cheers, Greg.
