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. :-)

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.

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.

If you hover your mouse cursor over the Quote button on any post, you can see the post count — 227,597 for your post and 227,610 for mine, so 12 other posts have been made in the couple of hours between them.

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.
