How did I manage 6800 and something in less time? :P

Before anyone else can say it, quality of posting > quantity. I've had this pointed out to me many a time.

WHAT?! No, quantity>quality! SPAM!

Anyhow, congrats Beafoot (I guess.) on your post count.

While Fiindil is the leader of the market, Bearfoot stands for quality.

Congrats, Bearfoot.

Yah well....
As of THIS post I have officially hit 100 posts and metamorphisised from a Junior Member to a Full Member!
Hooray!

I'm so close to moving from the 3rd page of the member list to the 2nd when its ranked based on post count!

I agree with Bearfoot's method. I don't usually have soaring amounts of posts, but what I do have to say is usually something that is of import, on topic and well thought-out.

Congratulations mate.

I post when I'm bored. On topicness isn't so great.

Keep in mind that I predate the move over from the old forums....


So I actually have more than that...

EDIT: still not 1337. I need to work on that.

I'm quite sure the posts in the old forum are counted, as such people as Wintress and Gravehill still have their post count, and you registered a couple of days after me.

Unless you were a member of a pre-Hazul forum, that is.

You weren't there, SpeedD, so you can not understand how we old-timers feel.

Wherever did Wintress go, anyway?
Title: Re: i'm 1337...
Post by: Smeagol on December 14, 2005, 09:38:10 am
Maybe she predicted my arrival and left for good to keep her eyes intact?
Title: Re: i'm 1337...
Post by: Torp v2.0 on December 14, 2005, 04:34:51 pm
She was here for 2,5 months after you registered.

It was probably you who drove her away!!!!

Second last post, and last real activity of Wintress. The last post was pretty much, a 'I'm alive' post, although with far more emotion, and the knowledge that life at that moment for Wintress was fairly sucky.
Title: Re: i'm 1337...

Soooo... It was your fault then Fiindil!

Yes, that was exactly my reaction. With SG and Magicman beating her postcount, she'll be #10.

Gravehill had a great last post.
Title: Re: i'm 1337...
Post by: Smeagol on December 14, 2005, 09:32:13 pm
Indeed he did. It's truly a pity that has not returned, the forum was a much better place when he was around. You could always count on at least one laugh a day from Gravehill, guaranteed, and likely, one fairly long post as well, that was insightful and thoughtful.
Title: Re: i'm 1337...
Post by: Torp v2.0 on December 14, 2005, 09:35:22 pm
Gravehill was the King of the Forum, no doubts about that. I propose a motion to make him Honourary Administrator, even if he'll never return to claim the title.
Title: Re: i'm 1337...
Post by: dialupdaemon on December 14, 2005, 10:04:30 pm
Even though I've never met the guy, if Torp thinks he should be made Honourary Administrator then he probably deserves it. I'll second the motion!
Title: Re: i'm 1337...
Post by: Bearfoot on December 14, 2005, 11:55:09 pm
And we liked it that way!

*mutters something about walking uphill in the snow both ways with no feet*

Back in the old days, we didn't have Radiczor.
Title: Re: i'm 1337...
Post by: Smeagol on December 14, 2005, 11:58:56 pm
How can you walk both ways in snow?  That would imply doing the splits for quite some distance, and without feet is really quite a feat (OMGZ, PUN!). You also missed out:

'With a crust of bread in my back pocket. Had to walk 15 miles, and after coming home, my parents would decapitate me and eat me for dinner.'
Title: Old posts count
Post by: Bavi_H on December 15, 2005, 06:42:04 am
All the archived posts from the old forum are counted. But the last month or so from the old forum wasn't backed up.

(If you look at the Stats (http://forum.machinaesupremacy.com/index.php?action=stats) page of this forum, you can see a gap between February and May 2005, but if you look at the the official Machinae news (http://www.machinaesupremacy.com/news.htm) page, you can see the actual down time was shorter, between March/April and May 2005.)
Title: Re: i'm 1337...
Post by: Smeagol on December 15, 2005, 06:32:26 pm
Quoting the stats is well and good, but I know for a fact that Wintress' last post was the fairly large pink one. I was around damned frequently even then. About 600 posts were lost, and a few members. Nothing major.

How come I dont remember this stuff?

Yet another classic Bavi_H post. 100% percent information and 100% on topic. I bet we could compile another FAQ from your posts...

Likely, you can remember something useful. I can't. Never have been able to, I've only ever been able to remember trivial details.

Yeah, but you didn't have guns, atom bombs,terrorists, and lighters either

P.s z0r..That's written with a zero !!

Why did wintress leave ?

Gravehill ?
Title: Re: i'm 1337...
Post by: Smeagol on December 15, 2005, 11:56:42 pm
Because of yours truly ;)

Seriously, just read Gravehill's last post. He'd rather not have any speculation cast on his leaving, nor his return. I think we can leave it at that.
Title: Re: i'm 1337...

Title: Re: i'm 1337...
Post by: chompy on December 16, 2005, 04:02:47 pm
She was just returning to life.... the real life. She had real issues that had been taking up realy amounts of time, as foruming can become somewhat addicitve she decided to limit herself.
Title: Re: i'm 1337...
Post by: Bearfoot on December 16, 2005, 09:20:22 pm
As much as I miss her, I think she made the right choice here... speaking as a former internet addict...
