    Today is a huge milestone for ThrillNetwork

    Today, possibly tomorrow ThrillNetwork will hit 500,000 posts, that's a half a million posts over the last 3 years. It's been lots of fun posting, chatting and arguing with so many coaster fans during that time. Thanks to all the mods and also to my fellow TN members for making it so interesting. Keep it up!

    I'm sure Steven or Graham will tell who makes the 500,000th post and when, so don't worry about missing it. I don't think it will happen until late tomorrow or Thursday.

    I'm pretty sure it will happen today, tomorrow at the latest. We're only a little over 200 posts away right now. Plus, many of the people who post most often are teenagers and many are still in school right or just getting home depending on what time zone they're in. I think we'll hit it today. I'd do my share of posting today but I'm about to head to work. I feel positive when I get home later, we'll be at 500,000 or very close....close enough for me to push it over the edge. ;) .....no spamming of course.

    Hooray! This whole thread is a SPAM bonanza!

    Anyways, Steve-in-London was the guy to make the 100,000th post and was awarded a special avatar for it. That was long, long ago. (Like 2 or 3 whole years!)

    There is going to be a sudden drop in the number of posts once a mod sees this thread. You guys could at least attempt to make a serious post.


    I didn't realize how many posts are being made, so there is an outside chance that it could be tonight still.

    Stop spamming guys. I've deleted a few of the spamming posts.

    Stop counting down. You can see the total number of posts at the bottom of the forums. When we get to 500,000, you'll know. We may even tell you who got it.

    Heh...years later I'm just now finding out what that avatar was for...go me! I always wondered what it meant. Figured he won some contest. I doubt we'll hit 500,000 tonight, but I guess it's definately not impossible.

    We are aware of the milestone, and we do have something planned (only bigger than an avatar).

    So you know, If the 500,000th post was made in this thread, message board games, ends up being deleted by a staff member for TOS violations, or is posted by a staff member, we will go to the 500,001st post, and so on.

    Heh, only thing is that the count is already past 500,000 really. Look over the 'quote' box and see what it says...521,xxx. That means the mods have deleted/moved 21,000 posts. Thanks to the mods for keeping this place clean!

    He's talking about the actual number of the post. Look at the post number in the URL (address bar), SFNE stinks. Your post says 521115. Actually, it says [url]http://www.thrillnetwork.com/boards/showthread.php?p=521115#post521115[/url]

    That last part is the post number. I suppose it changes for deleted posts and stuff.

    It does seem like just yesterday the 100,000th post was the big milestone...Ok maybe not yesterday, maybe a couple years ago but it's still fresh in my mind. Anywho we'll probably make it late tonight, with less than 50 posts to go as I type.
