As Aheer.R.S would say "Lies!". I remember you posting an image of a lightsaber on your office desk at work.

I'm not going to get in to it here (this is an open forum viewable by everyone including guests, and it would take this off-topic) but needless to say that things can't stay the same forever.

Oh, oops! :pinch:  I apologize, I should have considered the possibilities before making such a post.

 

Hope you get back on your feet soon.

Bummer there isn't a t-shirt for us old farts who have been around for about ever.  (since 22 Aug 2001 for me)  I just don't post that much here. I'll just enjoy being a crusty old dog here. :rofl:

You know, I still would like to see an optional old fart badge as well, for those of us who've been members for > 10 years.

I don't have the source file for this but the image above has barely visible subscriber text behind the Old Fart text.

 

:rolleyes:

 

Brown might be better for Old Fart... but it's up to you.

Something like that as official Neowin badge. Where's Timan when you need him?

Send him a PM and show him the image I made and see if he could create a template for everyone else who is a member since Neowin started as an option, I mean member, subscriber, old fart badges.

Aren't there only a handful of people over 25K Posts/ I know BudMan is one. I'm not nearly as helpful as BudMan is... I think it's time to step my game up.

Yes. News comments and deleted threads are no longer counted. I lost 6000 myself. (N)

A lot less now that the post count is screwed up.  I was at 21k posts and now i am at 12.  So really cannot count on the accuracy of the post count at the moment.

I lost a bunch of posts also... What was the point of the site upgrade again? The old site worked so much better... I guess Neowin never heard of deploying the update first on a separate server and modify/test internally before pushing to production.

Made a similar comment in another thread.  Seems that such a big update would have been tested on a backup of the database first to work through any bugs.

You get to start over at 0 posts but with platinum instead of gold stars marking your progress.

Unless I get to 25k before the next database upgrade, I don't think I'll ever get a T-shirt.
