I just broke through to be gerbil elite level. I think this is the first time Elite has been associated with me in a positive sense.

Took me over a year to get to this level too. haha :P

I've moved to 13th top poster as Captain Ned flew past me.

I was once number 7 :(

Aww spot think of it this way. In the moments before your first post you were dead last. You've come a long way!

It's all about perspective.

The :evil: was a reference to the dark side, not any annoyance on my part. It makes no difference to me (if I hadn't posted in this thread, so it showed up in my active topics, I wouldn't even have noticed). We've been a couple of hundred points apart for months now, I think.

It's still funny how high gleek is, considering how long he's been inactive.

I do believe I am the slowest to 500, for a daily visitor. Any way to verifiy?

I registered 2 months before JBI. But I have 2% of his posts. He's prolific.

The default sort option for the member list is by date joined. There's also a "last active" column that shows when they visited the site. Of course, this won't account for large gaps but should be good for a rough guess. For example, Ronald doesn't have any posts and he's a daily visitor. Although I don't know how often he reads the forums. ;) Dissonance also hasn't hit 500 posts. One of the mods, Nemesis, only has 70 posts but he's here regularly.
Being right doesn't matter if no one listens.

It's not quantity it's quality. I've been coming for a while registered in...2006 I think? At any rate I'm well below 1 post per day.

Edit: no, it's 2007.

I haven't started drinking yet, but I did hit 6K.

It only took 6 years. Although now that I have left R&P the next 1k could take even longer.

Please bear with me on my first milestone. I survived with minimal incidents from the mods. This milestone is really important for me because this is the only PC Hardware forum where I'm participating. I've been a bystander since socket A days and I really learned a lot from TR (luckily not THG, LOL).

The other PC site where I hang around is a local PC parts trading site. I'm always on the lookout for great bargains from upgrade addicts. I'm usually on the trading site when my ex-girlfriend is not around. I'm afraid she would pull the plug when I'm bookmarking some nice graphics card or PC case deals.

I've moved down the 13th. I think I was once 7th or somewhere around there.

I have a while before I'm at risk of another overtaking, unless another PW emerges.
