20,000 messages!!!

Post by WingAdmin »

Apparently this happened last month, and I didn't even notice.

On April 23rd, I wrote what is my 20,000th message on this site. It's this one: viewtopic.php?p=297273#p297273

I posted the very first message on this site on October 7, 2008, welcoming people to the "new forum." Almost 11 years later, and here we are at 20,000. That's a lot of writing! That averages out to 5.2 messages per day, every day, for almost 11 years.

As I write this, there are a total of 277,261 posts on the forum, written by 15,382 different members.

Thanks, everyone!

Kudos for putting in the hard work to keep the forum like you have it.
it is a tasteless job, and few forums have good admins to properly administer things.

20,000 is a lot of work....

My posts here aren't nearly so large at Posts: 1625

but on SSWGF where I have been logged in since 10-22-2006, Total Posts: 56,308
Being the most senior Mod there probably helps in that regard.

Thank you Scott for one of the best sites. If not for your how to's I would never have known how to do all the things that I've had to do on my trike. Again I can't thank you enough. Tony

Scott, I too need to add my thanks for all the effort that you have put into creating and maintain this site. Without it, I would have been floundering around trying to figure out how to work on my newly acquired Goldwing trike. As a newbie, I found it very easy to start posting and seeking information from the forum. I've never felt intimidated on this site and the information available is priceless. Thanks again for all your work and the most amazing part is at no cost to the users!
