Congrats, bturk! I pass on to you ... the Cyburbia tiara! :)

Remember, I knocked off a thousand posts from my count, because they were from messages that were manually transferred from the old board to the new. Thought it wasn't fair to include 'em, really.

No, I don't be knocking down other users' post counts. :D

The Straight Dope message board (http://www.straightdope.com) has some users with over 10,000 posts; there's far more high-posting users than moderators. BTW, for those that complain about moderation here, SDMB has some tough mods.

I don't play first-person shooters. There's a ton of vBulletin-based boards that cater to 'em, though, and many have total post counts in the millions, with lots of 20,000+ post users. If I want to get Cyburbia to the 100,000 post mark before the end of March, all I have to do is add sub-forums dealing with Counter-Strike, video cards, overclocking and anime, change the color scheme to incorporate dark grey or dark green text on a black background, and then post a few messages on other FPS boards.

Yes, but not in "that" way. ;)

For perspective: I look back at my own 2043 posts of nothing but career killing mindless rants & drivel and I gain even more respect for your work in the field of documenting one’s own mental illness, developing new and twisted perversions and projecting a wicked sense of tastelessness and humor world-wide. In some islands near Papua New Guinea you are consider a GOD bturk. To me Sir, you are the wind beneath my wings. :)
