# When will we have 30,000 PF members?

I was refreshing the screen, and the total post count went down by one.

I started on wikipedia, now I've migrated to reading a beginner's introduction to Arc Welding.

Does anyone here do arc welding? I think it's awesome.

:rofl: Wouldn't it be so disappointing if the 30,000th member ended up being a spammer we had to ban immediately? Oh, no matter, we'll probably scare off whoever it is with all the congratulatory remarks; the attention will embarrass them back into lurking, poor newbie. :rofl:

"Active Members: 6,525"

Yeah we should all send him/her pm's about being the 30,000th member.

Someone who wrote a post in... I believe, the most recent 30 days?

What is an Active Member?

One that can satisfy ?

This is getting nerve racking. I have things to do, but I can't leave until the 30,000th member signs up.

They better not be a loser. :grumpy:

I predict that we hit 30,000 between 2:06 and 4 pm PDT today.

Congrats to our 30,000th member: Nabla!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

"heads to the control room..." jk Yay 30k members!

mattmns
Hmm, I am thinking Nabla may not actually be a new member. *looks at Ivan*
Reasons:
-Nabla is too Math based for a new member.
-Nabla has not been active since 3:11, just minutes after joining.
-Ivan's activity. No posts from Ivan between 3:08 - 3:12, which in between Nabla had joined.

Looks a little on the suspicious side to me :uhh:

IVAN! The evidence does all point the finger of guilt to him.

Our 30,000th member is an alien sock puppet!

Could someone be pointing the finger in order to deflect suspicion?

I have two IPs and the other mentors know them both, so it couldn't have been me.

mattmns
WAIT!

You forced me to look at my screenshot, in which I noticed that you are no longer a "currently active member" at the time just after Nabla had joined. Another coincedence? I THINK NOT!

Look at the following screenshot.

Ivan left at 3:08, and then mysteriously came back at 3:12, just after Nabla had left!
