Just a little less than 1 year ago (May 22, 2010), the 25,000th person posted for the first time on the forum. http://community.logos.com/forums/p/17432/131577.aspx

We are nearing 50,000 users (screenshot taken tonight, May 17 at 10:30 PM EDT):

This is pretty amazing growth. 1987 new members every month during the last year. 66 new users every day.

We are also approaching the 250,000th post. Looks like we'll hit that one before we get our 50,000th user.

Logos could celebrate by having special sales to commemorate the momentous events. At 250K, everything 25% off, and at 50K posters, 50% off Big Smile

Hey, a fellow can dream, can't he? Hmm

Wow! Think what the progress of the sequence would mean for 125K posters. Devil

Reading through this thread makes me wonder what it would mean if we changed it from total posts and posters to total meaningful posts and posters. Surprise

Or what would it mean if we answered a question...

They'd add up much faster that way.

But it can't be fair to change the rules halfway through a game Smile

I think that "problem" is compensated for by several of us commonly answering 2-10 other posts in one single post of our own. I don't think you can do that on Twitter. I agree with Jack:

I think you "owe" us a sale. Big Smile When Twitter passed a threshold, there was a huge sale. When Facebook passed a threshold, there was a huge sale. But when the Forums passed a threshold, all that happened was that one person got a gift. Good for him -- but fair? How many tens of thousands of dollars do the good people here save Logos in tech support costs by answering questions and creating the Wiki and videos? And in lost sales by making people think twice before returning the software when they're disappointed or run into serious trouble? Do the Twitter and Facebook users do that?

Definitely. Next week, sometime? Unless the Rapture does happen on Saturday.

Are you implying that some posts are not meaningful? Hmm I'm shocked beyond words. Huh?

Ha! Actually, I remember a game we used to play in math camp called GAME, which stood for GAME And Meta-Extensions (yes, its name was recursive; a math geek thing). The rules of the game were basically: (1) Start with the rules of tic-tac-toe; (2) When it's your turn you can make a move under the current rules, or make a rule change. Rule changes could involve anything from what constitutes "winning" to what the board looked like to what moves are allowed and disallowed. I think the only rule you couldn't change was that turns had to alternate back and forth between players (otherwise someone could come in and make a rule that gave them 4 moves in a row to an automatic win).

Update as of one week later (5/24/11) 1:40 PM EDT:


We have added 370 new users and 1,569 posts in the past week. We are almost at 50,000 users and a sneeze away from 250,000 posts.

EDIT: And still no word from Logos on how they are going to sale-abrate this milestone. Smile

The answer, of course, would be . . .

I'm guessing this number isn't updated live?  Mine has said the following for the last several minutes at least, despite myself and others making posts:
