Wow, that was fast...One month later, I've almost reached 1,000 posts. This isn't to steal Max's thunder by any means, but I want to do some kind of milestone thread. I haven't quite decided what I'm going to do or how I'll do it, but I want to mention as many people as I can who have had an impact on me while I've been here -- and there are too many.

So, in typical Max fashion, I made a sign-up list. May the DDO Elite be with you.

SIGN-UPS
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
...ad infinitum

I don't know of any user "me." DDO says that this person doesn't exist.

M8, I have over 8k posts in five months, lol.

So, a rate of 1,600 posts a month, on average. I can probably match that. I'll just need...2,200 posts this next month.

Lol, I need to be really careful about my next 10 (9) posts....

No flame wars until I hit 1000, fellas. Tell me later about how much you hate my dog avatar, or mafia games, or record, etc.

On second thought, maybe I'll just make my way down my friends list in order to construct this thread...

Wait... so now we're signing up for our own shout outs? What? That defeats the purpose...

And why are we giving shout outs for arbitrary numbers of forum posts? Saying "yay look I got x amount" is fine but now we're making speeches? For posting way too much on an internet site?

Yikes...

Not necessarily--it's a way for me to make sure that I don't leave people out. For instance, had you not posted, I would've forgotten you existed (Welcome back, btw).

The list is by no means exhaustive, also. I'm going to, generally, go down my friends list and mention the people I talk to even somewhat regularly.

And why are we giving shout outs for arbitrary numbers of forum posts? Saying "yay look I got x amount" is fine but now we're making speeches? For posting way too much on an internet site?

I don't think it's particularly arbitrary, at least in this case. It could go overboard, I'm sure--if I were to make a new thread not simply for 1k, but for every multiple of 1k, something is wrong. I see no issue with making a thread to celebrate hitting triple digits.

It's also not much of a speech...I trust in my abilities as a wordsmith, but even I wouldn't be so self-aggrandizing as to label it a speech.

Yikes...

Yikes indeed.

Is this your way of saying you don't want to be included? :P

I think the sign-ups should be people signing up others, and you're forced to tell us what you really think of them.

I could decline to include some people because this is is, you know, my milestone thread, though I'm not the type of person to conceal what I really think of someone, nor do I reveal my emotions passive-aggressively as some do.

And.....last post until the unveiling of the list. Keep filling up the sign-up sheet, but I'm probably going to use my friends list or some other repository of names to make this. If I forget someone, you can lynch me.

This really isn't typical of me at all, and I only did it in this instance due to special circumstances that in my view made it the only option. In general though, I don't like the idea of sign up lists for milestone threads (and I really hope they don't become a thing), nor did I want to set any precedent for it.
