Neowin congratulates Rappy at 100,000 posts

Well, almost 100,000.

It's 99,841 at the time of writing, but he'll pass that today or tomorrow at the current rate, and that certainly deserves a mention!

Rappy also has an awesome reputation karma!

In this day and age with social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, one can argue that community forums like Neowin and others are suffering as a result. The proof is there as well. Up until 2011 we easily managed 1,000,000 forum posts a year, but since then it has been quite a bit less, the magic 1,000,000 annually here at Neowin at least, is nothing but a memory of years past, although in the same breath I'd say we aren't suffering as much as we could be.

There are however still a bunch of active members on Neowin who continue to support the site through thick and thin; one of those is our popular staff member Rappy who has since 2002, brought joy to fellow lurkers and members with his epic threads that, in some cases, are limited to areas that are unfortunately not available to guests and members without a subscription. Thankfully, guests and non subscribers can still enjoy his vast submissions in The Media Room of which I'm also a fan.

Rappy easily manages 100 posts/day or 10% of the days total posts. 

So today I'd like to give a big shout out to a member, and a friend that continues to break records everyday when he posts, and will also be the first to reach 100,000 posts on Neowin. To put that into perspective, the second highest poster is Hum, at 54,700 posts.

I'd link one or two Epic threads from Rappy here, but as I've already pointed out, they can't be accessed without a subscription, current subscribers will know what I mean ;)

Damien, you rock. Thanks for your support, great posts and assistance as an awesome staff moderator to Neowin buddy!

We'll be handing Rappy a permanent Tier 2 subscription, which is our ad free experience.

I remember when rappy disappeared from the site for some time, the media room stood still without his posts. There was hardly anything happeening in that section without rappy. There was a "comeback rappy" thread too on the site to coax him to come back.

Congrats Rappy!!

Wow!! 100,000 posts!

I usually regard these self imposed pat on the backs, even if this one is not that type, topics as blah and non interesting, but that many is an accomplishment, if not a commitment to not having much else to do!!

Rock on, rappy!!

Congrats Rappy, you have reached a higher point of the evolution of consciousness in life.

@Neowin, maybe we can encourage others to continually post so they can reach such an important event in life too?

Congrats, Rappy! You're the man... I've seen you all over this forum over the years and it's great to have you in the community!

There should be a Rappy Day or something...

Well done laddie I have long suspected that your mission is to make sure every single image and gif on the whole Internet is posted on Neowin's forums >.>

Congratulations Rappy! Thanks for all the current info on movies and such. Plus I quite enjoy the subs forum post wars.

Well done to the postmeister, your the bread and butter, bees nees, top dog and make Neowin a better place for all
Maybe today should allways be called Rappy`s Day, we`ll all buy you presents, maybe a Lamborghini Murcielago or an F430.

nah I'll be like oprah and give them to the members

YOU get a Ferrari! And YOU get a Ferrari! And YOU get a Ferrari!

Congrats Rappy! Your posts have made up a huge proportion of my daily Neowin catchup for such a long time now and I really appreciate them, particularly the "media" ones, you know the ones I mean Big fan!

Whilst a note worthy achievement, it hardly qualifies as a relevant technology-related, front-page headline news story! IMO

If this was real life, you'd be the equivalent to One Direction!
Probably get as much tail as them too.

Well done btw.

Greatest comment ever!

I have not seen anyone with 100k posts anywhere before... Congrats, Rappy! I enjoy reading your posts. Looking forward to your next 50k posts or more.

Rappy you're the men! I encountered many of your posts which I enjoyed reading and some of them, reply! Thank you for the continuous feeding of information!

So, I've come back from the dead to say 1 thing: Congrats! It's really hard to get 100,000 posts!

Of all forums I've been on, the one where I personally have the highest post count is the NSider2 Forums. I have 7,046 posts there. Mind you, this is combined with the approximate amount of posts I had on Nintendo's original NSider Forums, (NSider used to be Nintendo's official forums, until they closed it down in 2007 which led to a member known as EJ_RAVEN creating his own forums to replace it, which is kinda funny because later on EJ would pretty much be banished from his own forums,) which was actually the first forums I was a member of, unless you count that Nickelodeon Blab account I had when I was like 5 or something & didn't know what the hell was going on...

He gives me good news on films and that. A joy to talk to mostly on media part of the forums.
And he loves to posts lots

I hope Rappy gets a share of Neowin's profits (if there are any - I don't know if you guys are even able to cover your costs). I usually find myself replying to something interesting which he has posted.

I remember getting him in trouble back in college, where his parents thought I was one of his tutors and I mentioned about him being lazy in class. To this day, I still can't believe his parents actually thought I was one of his tutors!
