I came in here to say that's an awesome idea but ^^ 116K posts wtf, weren't you at like 50K last year?  There's entire forums on the internet with thousands of members that have less posts than your cumulative total. wow alright back on track tip of the hat to the 25K posts idea anyway very generous give back to the members. 

 

On to the next great idea though how about a commemorative avatar badge for 10+ years ;)

I've been suggesting an 'old fart' badge before. A dark grey one with gothic script font. :shifty:

Nowhere near close to getting 25k posts....maximum spammage commencing.

 

(been here roughly 8 years, at 5k posts in 8 years I'm gonna need another 32 years of Neowin to get there)

Steven, if I had a hat, I'd be doffing it to you right now, so this will have to do until I can convince myself I can pull off wearing a trilby...

Just did some number-crunching; I've averaged - as near as makes no difference - 5 posts a day over the past 8+ years, so if I carry on at that rate, I'll hit 25k in exactly 9 years time, on this very day. Might put it off a few months so then it can be a 32nd birthday present to myself. :P

Nice, I got about 8500 to go. Should hit that in about 8 years or so. :punk:

 

Can one just purchase the shirts outright though? I would no doubt purchase one as long as they are not ridiculously priced.

I did the numbers:

 

I've been active 880 Days. 1,370 Posts (as of this post). 1.556818182 posts per day.

 

I require 23,630 more posts to qualify which will take 15,178.39416 Days.

 

 

On November 25, 2055 at 09:27 (+10:00) you owe me a shirt.

I will be 71 years old. So, make it a small.

If all the posts of mine that got me in hot water with mods, or arguments with fellow Neowinians were removed from my count I think I'd only have about 25% of my total  :shiftyninja:  :rofl: Still pretty cool to think I've been on a site for 11 years. I first joined to follow KoL and sanctified's XP themes.

 

I wouldn't ask for a tshirt due to shipping costs, but I wouldn't mind being a subscriber for a year! I was a sub a while back but since I've turned into a grinch with money and whitelist ads on my most visited sites instead.

I fear this will just lead to more spam posts but. 

 

I'd rather have people be rewarded for useful posts but people tend to judge people more than the quality of their posts so that doesn't work as well either. 

 

pageviews is what brings in the money form the small ads, page views come from peopel wanting to visit because they find good useful posts, not from thousand upon thousands of useless spam... :/
