Just the knowledge that you have posted 5000 posts and for you it will be a constant reminder that at one stage you were ahead of me on the post count.



I remember that!! Vying with you to stay in the top 50! Then you accelerated outtasight!

&.. thanks Ben!


I have just broken into the exclusive club at #50 :mrgreen: Just slipping past the dear departed LittleFishes. With the lovely(i hope) Lilraven close on my tail. :o[/quote]


You are actually 52 as Boston being a mod is not included on the ranking list. Also another member pulled out at about 8500 posts and returned under a new id. Actually if what you say about LJ in his first appearance here is correct then really you are 53rd.

I tell it how it is. And that person departed and returned for personal reasons which are best left unsaid.

Pah! Cry-babies. I've lost more than 1500 posts! And? Did my post count change ? Yes.
Constancy is just for softies. If ER is too strong, you're too weak.

Hey, Mr. Oxford... a belated bravo on reaching Titanium status... and I think that you should receive a lovely prize to mark this very special occasion... I think that you should be given a box-set of the entire works of Bruce 'The Boss' Springsteen!

Ahh Titanium status, I remember that....2500 of my posts mysteriously disappeared one day. They'll probably turn up in the glove box of my car with everything else I seem to lose.

Give it a break.

The corollary to this is of course: Get a life.

I see...

Will happen again, or is just unexpected? The same thing happened to me when I was on the Black Sabbath Forums, something happened and I lost about 2000 posts, I was on 6000 too! I was gutted.
