I congratulate you on your step up. I feel it is necessary to remind the gerbils that it does not matter how many posts you can throw at us, but the quality of the posting is what counts.

I've seen worse. The top poster of the belgian Big Brother forum had an average of 70 posts per day over a 105 days period (as long as Big Brother lasts of course).
More than 70 posts per day over 105 days this means over 7500 posts in 105 days!!! Come on.. get a life.

My prior post here was #56 - I'm posting a lot these days :)

50 in 5 months and 20 in 3 days :) gotta keep it up.

I don't get why people get excited over this kind of thing.....it's not like you've really accomplished anything.

All this self-congratulatory stuff about how many posts you have in a forum is actually kind of sad.

With this post, I reach 500 and the rank of Gerbil Elite.

Vrock, as far as posting goes, it is important to some of us that have no life or are just major geeks. :)

I think we should recognize SMP-ness in one of our Gerbil names. How about Gerbil MP?

Just noticed, 14 more posts and I get to be a team leader.

Maybe Gerbil MP is after Graphmaster. Everyone keep an eye on Austin and Forge.

And in a nod to the past, how about Gerbil X-MP :-D

did any one notice that damage doesn't even have 200 posts. :-?
and I think Forge and Austin could be the best posting guys here, almost all of their post are useful (well at least for Austin :D and Forge most of the time :lol:)

I'd have more posts than Austin if I didn't have this damned job.

What happened to Speed? He beat me to 700 or somesuch, and was pulling away, and now he's disappeared....

I *will* wear Austin down. He can't post forever, and my auto-posting AI is nearly functional. Soon it will even make sense!!

I call it Zenith251.


P.S. - Mac_H8r - Congratulations.... Now you have to graduate to the next level of caps lock in your titles. :)

Let's see, I am almost to First class... it has taken a while though. I wish front page posts counted, I would be a few ranks higher.

If comments posts counted, I'd really own Austin. At one point I was something like 8% of total volume, or something.
