200k is a nice number.
More than one person could ever read, but still small and cosy (not overwhelming) compared to the biggest forums on the internet. :-)

Wow!
"From little things
big things grow!"
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Oh my! I was disappointed I missed the odometer on my truck hitting 100,000 recently, but this is much better! :D I'm totally going to put that photo on my desktop.

Thank you to everyone who puts in the hard work keeping the site going. It has been quite beneficial for my practice and understanding to participate here.

And we're anywhere near sotapanna-ship huh... :tongue:
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

I'm sure everyone is glad that is not the case. Looks like I've kept it to a dull roar of 1158 so far, a long way from even being in the elite 5-digit club.

The 4-digit club is still pretty prestigious.

Well done Dhammawheel! I cannot comprehend how much merit must have been made through this site, not least by its creator Dr Snyder. The online landscape is better for DWs existence.

Wow, that is a lot :toast:

Ah right, thank you. I'll use that next time I'm on my computer. On my tablet I cannot hover.

Still, wow. As a scientist I'm fighting the compulsion to plot posts over time to work out the growth function for the forum.
