Oh sorry, I thought you were answering my question in the previous post.

Never mind! The more mindless waffle in this thread, the quicker we get to 100,000 :)

I am surprised there are only 6 users with 'The Twilight zones (I suppose tubeguru is, but he isn't really)!

Excuse me, do you mind not editing my posts for me? I meant 10,000th, as an example from The Orange One's list above. It's impossible to find out who made the 100,000th post for the simple reason that it hasn't been made yet!

You find a link to a particular post - you can do this by clicking on the topic title. You remove the &f= and the &t= and everything bar the &p=. This may or may not work out - but I've fixed that up now. Here is such a link.

http://www.tubechallenge.com/forum/view ... 915#p99915

To find the nth post, simply change the 99915 in that link to n (whatever you want). Should work.

No, not 11th, try the magical and mysterious idea of sorting by number of posts. That may work.

And, three years longer? Really?

That is indeed quite an achievement, given that Tube Geek joined less than six months ago...

I've not actually been on the forum for the time since I signed up, as for a while I wasn't on, from the 22nd Feb to 22nd Sept last year!

I've found the 5000s to be as interesting as the 10000s. At least, some of them...

5000: Tubeguru's announcement of the banishment of He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named (no, not Voldemort)
15000: Petermiller36 (commenting on the Big Brother house)
25000: Dudey (congratulations pertaining to an important moment in the life of Tubeguru)
35000: Snudge27 (midway round the Berlin U-Bahn)
45000: Deleted.
55000: Garion (Tumbleweed #8 post)
65000: Stevo (can't be bothered with the many es and os, a Word Association post by the way)
75000: RobbieM (Slightly Harder Around The World Game post)
85000: Tractakid (a rather amusing explanation of Tumbleweed)
95000: Tube Geek (Grumbleweed VII post)

Also, Tubeguru certainly deserves his spot in The Twilight Zone - Moley's post count is far fewer so you can't say it's down to administratorism.

Well, I didn't take part in the forum between 3rd August 2011 and 4th July 2013. So I've really only been here for just over three years.

I'm posting from a mobile and can only have one page and one clipboard item at a time. This is impossible - I've explained how to do it though!
