Self Gloss: My 10,000th Post.

Mon Aug 11, 2008 8:07 am

So after one year and almost three months I reach my 10,000th post. So much has changed between my first and 10,000th post. Somethings has been better, and some worse. Have seen many members that have gone and have been banned which I miss, and I have seen many new members. With some members I have had some hefty discussions  Wink

However, even after all changes I still enjoy this site. Non Aviation is maybe not as it once was but I find still A.net the best site in internet.

Now I need to come to a end, but there is a few more things I have to say.
Firstly about my post rate. I know that before my 30day ban I was fixated on the post count. I posted way too much back then and I have had many disputes over this. But as one grow and develops and understand more. I feel myself, correct me if I am wrong, that I have stopped to be a so called post whore. I dont anymore comment every little thing as I did once. I dont comment every TR with Nice TR, thanks for sharing (  duck  ) and so on. I know that I have been annoying to many and I just want to say that I am sorry for that.
Then lastly I want just to thank all the members that makes this site possible. Without you there wouldn't be any A.net (or without Johan  Wink )

And now guys up with the cargo bays!!!

Wow 10,000 posts, in most cases I would toast achievements with a vodka and Tang toast in this case I will save the vodka and tang and have a sip of warm salt water.

In the history of this site there has only one time when a member's post count has been reset to zero in this case I recommend a second.

The comparison to HWHNNFAA's quest for 10K post and this effort is an easy one as the majority of of posts in both cases were simple "me too" posts or one word posts in word association threads. That said there is one difference, in HWHNNFAA's case he has a love for aviation but through no fault of his own was/is unable to communicate in a way that all could understand will in this drive for 10K the ability to post is there but the motivating factor is clear;y to post reach 10k posts

I am much more of a fan of HWHNNFAA's attempt as he was driven by a passion for aviation.

Add Singapore_Air in there and you'd have him going on about how crappy and small Concorde's lav was whereas M.Concorde would be going on about how superior Concorde was compared to SQ's A380. Additionally, there'd also be Blackbird saying that Concorde was a Anglo-Franco conspiracy against the aviation world and B747forever would be oblivious to the whole situation but still say "thanks for sharing."

B747Forever cleared the 10,000 post mark after 1.3 years, and immediately had a self gloss thread to celebrate. After 10,000 posts, B747Forever has an RU Rating of 6

Luv2Fly took 5.3 years to clear 10,000 posts, and did not call any attention to it with a self gloss thread. After 10,000 posts, Luv2Fly has an RU Rating of 52.

I think it's pretty clear who thought about the value a post would add to ANet before they posted it, and who did not!

Part of the reason a member RR gets up to 52 is because they do not boast about their post count as I am sure Luv2fly is justifiably (sp) more proud of the quality of his posts than the simple quantity



hmmm

06/10039 = 0.000597669090546
52/10000 = 0.0052

I have no idea what the above the number indicate but there has to be something to this "Zippy-Factor"


I admit to making more than a few posts in word association threads and sadly those do count toward the magical post count. However I had much more fun posting in threads where I could have conversations with the membership whilst learning a thing or and sharing a laugh or two as well.
