Congratulations!

I sometimes see a nice set of numbers, then I don't want to post and ruin it. You could always just remain in the lounge. :biggrin:

Congrats!

I don't know if I'd ever need to compete or join the show off list, but I haz a prime. :biggrin:

Primes are nice, drizzle! :smile:
And Evo, I understand your concern.

When I get 100.000 posts, I'll stop posting! :smile: (or possibly not?)

Congratulations! :smile:

I've always preferred palindromic post counts in whatever base works. (Base 10 is always nice since that's the way it's displayed).

So, look forward to 12021!

That's a good one! I can hardly wait getting palindromic again!

I think 12345 will be cool.

Speaking of round numbers, I drove to school one day, which is about a 15 mile drive, and actually parked at 30,000 miles. That was pretty cool, but I forgot to even mention it to anyone at school. So yeah, the only people who even know this happened are me and whoever reads this, because this is the first time I've mentioned it, because I just remembered.

Well, I don't know about smartness, but, in contrast to me, there are lots of palindromic events on you post count level to enjoy in the near future!

Well if anything aldrino, your post has inspired me to venture out to other parts of the forum :D so thanks. Pretty interesting stuff out there! (Lets hope I don't get banned in the process)

Unfortunately I post (almost) exclusively from my phone, and it doesn't show post count in threads. I don't know how many posts anyone has, including myself.

I just know the familiar names.

Well that's a rather uninteresting number.

I can see post count if I view profiles, but I never really do that.

Is this a bit of foreshadowing I see? xP

Relative to you, certainly. In several respects:

Had PF still a single-digit number of members when you joined up here? :smile:

Haha, not quite, but I think we passed the 3000 mark soon after I joined.

So, you are a newbie relative to Integral, then, a true single-digit member here at PF! (Greg doesn't count, of course)

We all have our elders to reverence. :smile:

I think Monique has been with PF longer than anyone except Greg. Integral started very early as well. I think PF started in about Feb of 2001 and I didn't join until March of 2003. Funny thing, I had an email from Greg from early 2001 inviting me to join PF. I never have figured out how he got my email address. :biggrin: I found it several years later when I was cleaning out my mailbox.

And yes, newbie, not newby. :) I need to check my urban dictionary more often!

If you go into the Members List and sort after Join Date, you'll find that Monique is PF's first 2-digit member (that's an achievement of its own!). You, it seems, joined PF as late as April 30, 2003, almost a year before me.
