    I see you have been there for a while. I was watching it, but with all the commotion of recent weeks I lost track. So I welcome you now! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    Thanks Jon, :wave:
    Although I never bother about post counts, I seem to remember that I reached over 4000 before the gauge went down. :D Anyway, here's to the next 4000. :thumb:

    Amen! Keep those fingers ticklinghte keyboard! :D :D :D

    I saw that. We'll just have to get a new cake for you ;)

    I didn't watch them myself for about 6 months, then someone told me I was about to go over 4K, and I looked and was sprized to see I was leading. Of course, if we had some way to measure usefull content, it would knock me back to 500 :D :D :D

    As a group, which is what really counts, we have almost 100K posts on the-gauge!!!

    I was once in another forum where there was this one thread (How Many Replies Can We Get?) that had around 100K posts, and that was back in late 2002! :eek:

    Is it that Jon and Shamus have a lot to say, or that they say alot?

    Anyway, nice to see you supporting The Gauge :)

    I don't even know where I am, maybe 100 or so.

    Will, you have 333, its under your avatar.
    Considering I have been here over 3 years, my posts don’t do me justice in comparison to others.

    I know on other forums they make a big thing out of how many posts you have done. Which makes some people try and get as many posts as possible just to beat a certain member. To do this they quickly go around the board with just either a “Great Work” or something else, and I doubt that they even took the time to look at the original post before moving onto the next.

    Okay, I’ll get off my soapbox now and just say, I would hate to see this happen in the gauge.

    Yeah, Shamus, I agree - most of my posts are from the "Brain Teaser" thread - just One word Replies" :( but it's still fun. :) :) :)
