I have to extend a thank you and congrats to all of you that have gotten past 2000 posts!!!!

Dandy, Timeless, Franky and mousemeat all well over the mark and Alan, Kim and Allard pretty close. I'm at 68 or now #69! LOL! Thanks for keeping this site going strong!

I'm still not entirely sure how my post count ended up that high. It's possible I'm just going through a phase. Although it'll be a 15-year-old phase in August. Wink I suspect that my inherent wordiness has also helped it along. Laughing

Haha! You are both modest. Franky at 2443 and Timeless at 3833 posts! I just noticed today! Cool

You're not doing too badly yourself--over 70 posts, and you've only been a member about a week and a half. Smile I probably didn't have that many at that point. Wink

Only 29 for me in a year and a half.

Interestingly out of 7502 members only 359 have 1 post or more. That's 95% of the membership, 7143 people, who never post at all!

Yes. What's the deal with that? I had to be extremely persistent to join. It was not fully clear to me why my membership was not going through.

Why not just delete the ones with no posts? Where do all these people come from that sign up and never join?

Unfortunately, we get so many false registrations from spambots that we have to painstakingly go through all the registrations manually and often the only way of easily checking that is if the user tries to contact the admins to open the membership properly. We all have other jobs and families which suck up a lot of time, so finding opportunities for clearing out the backlog is difficult.

Oh, I've missed to greet and welcome you to the forum, anti-clockwise.
Sorry about that... Embarassed
I was very busy and stressed over the last weeks/months, because I had to learn a lot for my exams, which I finished yesterday.
Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy it here, and wil have as much fun as we have. Very Happy

Yours sincerely,

Sinus1994

The 2000 Club - sounds like the sort of folks who the Avengers might have to deal with, were they to get rowdy! Laughing

Good one Borgus Weems! I don't think the avengers would even know where to start with all of you in the 2000 club! LOL! Cool

Yes, thank you.
The exam went well and I'm very content with the result. Very Happy
I have some free time now, and I should actually work on my fan art-project... but I have no ideas so far... lol

Sincerely yours,

Please may I offer a gigantic "thank you" from me to all the posters on this forum in the past year. It's been a strangely trying time in "real life" but Avengerland has been perfectly enjoyable as always, and the international Avengers afficionados have been perfect, period (full stop as we say in England).

It's been great fun hearing from all fellow Avengers followers, sharing our views on the best show on television, and I love the heroes who can cope with anything thrown at them, however weird and outlandish - heroes known as Avengers fans Smile

I'm 45 today, which is a Significant Age - nearly half as old as Patrick Macnee, and about his age when he was filming "Never, Never Say Die" - which is a damn fine motto, that I intend to adopt.

Happy Birthday, Franky! Very Happy I hope you had a lovely day. Sorry to hear that real life hasn't been ideal, but glad that Avengerland has provided an enjoyable refuge. It's always lovely to have a chat with you. Cool

Thank you both. Yes, I ought to skip over one or two as well... time to start counting backwards I think!

I hope yours brings some fun, though, anti-clockwise! (Hopefully by then you'll be enjoying your Avengers episodes!).

Yes very funny indeed-counting backwards. Cool If I could just reverse time it would be great to go back to the 60's on my Tardis and watch the live filming of the Avengers. I would bring my Video Recorder to record the first year of episodes.
Then the rest is simple. Bring back the first year of Avengers DVD's and distribute on the forum. Not a bad use of time travel would you say? Very Happy
Excuse me but I think some men in white coats are coming to take me away...

Coincidence: I'm 45 in two weeks (so a coincidence with anti-clockwise too) Prepare to be condescended to by the financial industry, you've just entered their major target market.

Oh noes! And I've just finished spending most of my working life in finance, too (but not selling products to 40-somethings, thank goodness)...

My commiserations on being about to join me in the over-the-hill brigade, dissolute!
