Congratulations on Passing your 2000th Post

Postby swreader » Fri Mar 06, 2009 1:37 am

Since my darling husband, who lives and breathes this board (as is obvious) is too shy to toot his own horn, I figured I should post this:

CONGRATULATIONS TONYBLACK ON REACHING POST 2001 TODAY!!! :D

I think Tony's efforts have really made this a good board (which I need to post on more regularly). Lots of good stuff here.

Tony, here's hoping your internet connection doesn't go down again like it did yesterday. Your achievement is 8)

Well done Tony. That's quite an achievement in such a short period of time.

I'm envious of the time that you have to post and would really like to thank you for all the effort you put into being the best moderator there is.

Well done Tony - this is a great place to play and to learn as well and in just over 2 months to get more than 500 people registered and pretty nifty lot of contributors is a real achievement! *:D & hugs*

And Jan has just passed 500 posts! Congratulations on that. At that rate you should overtake me in no time. :wink:

Seriously though - I don't know if people always 'get' message boards. A message board is for all its members and a message board is only as good as its members.

If you are a new poster or you don't post very often then try to make the effort to do so. I've known some sites where people wait for the regular posters to do everything like they are afraid they'll get told off. Well some sites are like that, but I like to think this one isn't. That doesn't mean that if you start a thread people will automatically post there. I've started loads of threads that have died. There's nothing wrong with that.

Make the effort and contribute - it's fun! Honest! :P :lol:

Who's Tony?




Ha ha! Just kidding :wink: Congratulations, & thanks for all your contributions. I wish I could make more myself, but I tend to only have time to look when I'm at work, so it's a bit surreptitious :D

:twisted: But Dotsie - that's what makes it all the more 'forbidden fruit' when you do sneak on in stealth mode! :lol:

Did I turn 500? - so I did! :shock: I was having so much fun posting I wasn't keeping count lately! I don't think I'll manage to catch up with you or chris.ph and Tiffany though Tony... :P

... but what Tony's saying 'shy members' who like to read but not post - just get your toes in the water and join in the mayhem. You know you want to and as you can see none of us bite! And although some of us are barking (as in loony :oops: ) it's only because we're all getting into the Discworld spirit and you know what fun that is! :D

I agree. It doesn't matter what or how you post, just post.
Most of the stuff I put up is utter drivel, usually done when pissed.
It's fun :!:

Over 2000? Phew! That's impressive!
