UKMIX Milestones

matthew_dixon wrote:Okay, we're going to give the idea of a posting milestones thread a go again. Essentially there's very few simple rules to the topic.

1) Don't use it as a way to increase your post quota for no reason other than increasing your post quota.

2) Remember that posting on this site is not a race. There's no prizes for getting more posts (aside from the status change option at 10,000, before anyone mentions!)

3) Please be sensible about what is a "milestone". Jim's mentioned 10,000 posts. Kuba's just posted that he's reached 25,000 posts. I'd agree both are milestones. Things under 1,000 aren't really milestones, nor, once you get to the larger levels of posting is every 1,000 posts a milestone frankly.

As long as people are sensible, then this topic will stay open.
I know we ditched the old posting milestones thread because it was being used inappropriately, but I'm going to make an exception for myself just for this.

I'VE HIT 10,000 POSTS!

Unfortunately, I wasn't paying attention to my post count and this was my 10,000th post:

Luckily I had a camera handy for the night we celebrated, this is the moment I found out:

Once we put our shirts back on, we had some cake:

Later on we got to dancing...

It took just short of three years on here to reach this moment. Just so ya never forget, I LOVE UKMIX! 8-)

Cheers.

Well done, Jim! 8-)

I was actually hoping that we could open another "milestones" topic someday.

Same, I thought it was a really good topic bar the people who were celebrating their 2376th post etc.

Yeah, I think if everyone agreed to only do an update every 1000 or 5000 posts, for example, it wouldn't a problem at all.

I just remembered that Jim and I were racing to get higher posts before. Oh how times change. :( That I've got ___ posts is heartbreaking for me. :(

I was so busy with studies that I lost time to post here in UKMIX. :( That's why. But don't worry, I'll catch up... if you don't post from now on :lol:

That's really not something to be sad about. ;)

I am positive that I wouldn't have done as well in my GCSEs had I not asked Matthew to ban me from UKMIX for two months.
