I dunno how I feel about 5k posts to Flashaholic, thats a lot lot, prolly unattainable for most users. Id like to consider myself a pretty active user & it would take me around 10 years with no dip in activity to get to 5k. I feel 1k posts is more appropriate (which would still take 2 - 5 years for most). There could well be higher tiers beyond 1k like orbital suggests. But im glad the old system is back.

Byk has somehow been able to accumulate over 14k posts in just a few years. Imo he should be in a category all by himself. A special DOTM icon?

FLASHAHOLIC, coming through. That's right! Step aside. Coming through. Make way!

But now I'm no longer well known. Shucks. Apparently, one can't have his cake and eat it too. :)

You should celebrate with some new cologne!!

...I was stuck on like 2900 posts for a couple years.

I'm of the opinion that cologne and perfume, both, should only be discovered by those in very close proximity, not announced to everyone in the room.

Not being a wearer of cologne, perhaps a celebratory cocktail of a never before tasted gin is in order.

BTW, Flashlight Enthusiasts has a much classier connotation than Flashaholic. It exudes all of the notoriety but none of the negativism associated with being a holic.

Just jump on the HDS threads and start talking about tint. You’ll hit 5K by the weekend 😂😂

I'm playing with a time x post formula.
Gotta admit it's pretty cool to see an admin/owner clocked in and getting their hands dirty... a couple of other forums I populate have staff that seemingly hasn't been around since Coolidge was president.

I'm still pretty new around here, but can see that my title isn't "worthless jerk" or something, so no complaints on my part!

So what is the progression of titles? I was a flashaholoic, then a well known member, and now I'm a flashlight enthusiast. All three are true of me!

What is the progression of anything anymore?

I went to sleep one night and when I woke up an orange loud mouth real estate mogul with gold hair was president. Next day I went to sleep and when I woke a crazy man with dimensia who used to be bald was president.
Next day I went to sleep and Greta owned CPF and I was a flashaholic. Next day Jelly owned it and my account was locked. Next day it was open but I was no longer a flashaholic.
Next day I was a flashaholic again……

I'm afraid to go to sleep anymore.
