    Another ABW Milestone - 100,000 Threads
    Just noticed above that ABW is approaching 100,000 threads/topics.

    Amazing.

    Gratz Haiko, mods, and the community at large for having so much to say about an industry dear to us all.

    By comparison, I have a forum that has eight threads. And I started 7 of them.

    And you probably posted over half (49% LOL) of the replies to those threads too!

    My largest forum is about to hit 3,700 threads. It's very, very tiny compared to the ABW behemoth. Congrats, Haiko!

    Are those spam threads that end up being deleted counted in that number? I wonder how many spam threads have been started (and deleted)

    ? Threads: 83,320 and we average under 12,000 a year. So between Summer 2009 and Christmas 2009, should hit 100,000.

    I think he was referring to the "Discussions" number in the upper left hand corner.

    It's not an argument, it's an impassioned discussion.

    I think that number probably includes deleted threads. Of course, that would only be about 7500 deleted threads and that doesn't seem like enough deleted(spam) threads based on what I report alone!

    And the match is on! LOL

    Will it be 2009 before we reach 100,000 - or has MC, once again called upon his legendary intellect to rebut Trust's 09 projection? Who is right? Who will be shamed? Is it worth debating? Details at 10!!

    213 threads to get to the official 100K thread, before the PMA crap we'd be there in 4 or 5 days, now maybe 10 or 11. There will be a prize but I do not want to incentivize new postings. There is also a certain level of randomness as we delete spams and consolidate threads.

    Thank you all for the kudos and support for open communications in our industry!
    Continued Success,

    Haiko

    Nice job Kevin. Also, can someone put the other 95000 threads into MP3 format? I think I have only covered about 5000 of them. Whew! This brings new meaning to "lifelong learning".
