Wowza, we reached 20,000!  

Great stuff guys!  As you may have noticed I have been futzing with the layout a bit, tweaking things here and there.  Hopefully it will help improve things a bit.

Any ideas of your own?  I'd love to hear them.

Cheers,
-Xander Cheers!

Get the Grand Alliance color scheme back...Hashut!


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Willmark - 10-30-2007 08:57 AM

Great change in the forums. I think Golden Hat #4 needs to be announced to direct some creative energies for certain board members. Happy


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Bill-117 - 10-30-2007 11:40 AM

Marh... announce it when I get some minis! >:O


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Pyro Stick - 10-30-2007 12:11 PM

20000 posts is fairly epic for 461 members. I agree. Announce golden hat 4. It should help stop the spam.


RE: 20,000 Posts. - wallacer - 10-30-2007 03:36 PM

Amen for Golden Hat 4, which may well stop the spam (although ironically spam is the reason we are at 20,000 posts Wink )


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Willmark - 10-30-2007 04:04 PM

20,000 and 19,900 were about kera and tallhats. Seriously though a great milestone for a site that is this young. Congrats to all. Now about Golden Hat #4.... Happy


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Bill-117 - 10-30-2007 05:16 PM

You people keep saying 'spam' as if it is a bad thing... :/


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Ghrask Dragh - 10-30-2007 05:22 PM

20,000 posts Cheers!
for such a small community thats amazing, glad to be a part of it. I think the new modifications to the site are excellent and have had no complaints about this site from the outset.

Really does this: look nice to you?

On a more serious note, Spam does get annoying as it clogs up the topics and makes them hard to follow.


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Hammerhand - 10-30-2007 06:37 PM

Spam should be given its own section, with random topics and threads for random people to randomly generate random responses to random points and questions.  

Spam: It's good fun if you're involvedHappy but BAD if you're not. Mad

Respect others:- Quit your jibber jabber! Save spam for the spam threads!

GH 4 plz!!!!!!!!!

wibble


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Grimstonefire - 10-30-2007 07:45 PM

I would announce GH#4 (as I think we've decided what it will be), but I don't have the means to do a nice fancy banner and all that Wink

So I'll leave that to Xander/ Beaver.

I will say that it starts November 1st, due the last week of December to allow for one week of voting.

So expect an 'official' thread soon Happy


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Willmark - 10-30-2007 07:49 PM

Can't wait I will actually enter something, of course depending on the nature of said entry that is. Oh who am I kidding I'm chomping at the bit here!


RE: 20,000 Posts. - wallacer - 10-30-2007 07:53 PM

Perhaps rather than miniatures, it could be bodypainting of CD players.
I hope Xander doesn't leave us hanging...


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Bill-117 - 10-30-2007 08:17 PM

o_O Strange.

Plus the Freudian slip that you would use the word 'hanging' in a sentence about Xander's naked, painted body. o_o


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Khan! - 10-31-2007 12:05 AM

Too much Freud.  Not enough Golden Hat.  Well done us one reaching 20 000 posts.  Does the timing of this GH mean it will be, er, "solstice" themed?


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Nazhur - 10-31-2007 05:28 AM

congratulation to us all. This is the best forum for CD and everyone here is very polite. now when im geting back do finshing my CD army(after a campagin doing imperial fists to 40k), i will be much more active and you will se my post go higher then before Happy

I for one sooooo do not want to see that! Sick self included!


RE: 20,000 Posts. - AGPO - 10-31-2007 12:26 PM

Theres a pretty mixed bag of spam to be fair. Some of it is entertaining to read and take part in, whereas some just clogs up decent topics. Lets just restrict it to the off-topic page and leave it at that


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Xander - 10-31-2007 01:38 PM

AGPO makes a good point.  Keep the off-topic stuff to the off topic section.

I have no qualms whatsoever it making a Spam Subforum that doesn't add to post counts. Who would be in for that? (Edit: I ahve done this, check the Off-Topic section)

Grim is correct, Golden Hat #4 is being announced tomorrow, he gave the secret away.  As for non-modeling competitions, you can expect to hear some more about that starting Dec 1st.

Cheers!


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Bill-117 - 10-31-2007 04:20 PM

Good thing it's non-post count. Or every member would be a Lammasu in two days. :/

Is it tomorrow yet? is it tomorrow yet? is it tomorrow yet? is it tomorrow yet? Oops, too much excitement, I need to go to the bathroom.....

Like the idea of the no post count sub forum thing for spam such as this......sorry.{;-x)


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Bill-117 - 10-31-2007 07:20 PM

NO TIME HAMMERHAND! 'TIS GOLDEN HAT #4! Wet your pants - FOR THE GLORY OF HASHUT! Hashut!Hashut!


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Willmark - 11-01-2007 04:07 PM

Another thought for the site. How about a countdown for members we ate approaching 500 members, not a bad accomplishment. I'm sure the software or a plugin will allow for it. After that maybe every 1,000? Just a thought.


RE: 20,000 Posts. - wallacer - 11-01-2007 04:26 PM

Not a bad idea.  Perhaps when we get to 500 members, Xander can give us all a free slave to celebrate.


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Bill-117 - 11-02-2007 12:42 PM

Said the people with slaves in the fifties... How about the percentage of your slave count divided by four?

Not that I wanna do math... but...

(Wallacer as example)
64 divided by 4 = 16

16% of 64 is 10.24; Round off the two, and Wallacer gets ten slaves for 500th Member Day. This way, it's all equal. I think. I dunno... I don't understand all this stuff.


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Lord Zarkov - 11-02-2007 01:44 PM

would be a bit silly for the mods though; +2,500 slaves (GoT) seems a little excessive...Happy


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Bill-117 - 11-02-2007 02:59 PM

o,0 Wow... that's alot. Maybe just add one.


RE: 20,000 Posts. - AGPO - 11-03-2007 07:00 AM

How about if we hit 500 members everyone with over 500 posts has to post something new they've painted within a week?


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Bill-117 - 11-03-2007 12:06 PM

Or better yet, tell their most embarrassing secret and/or send in a picture of themselves in a bustier.

Also, who is GoT?


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Xander - 11-04-2007 11:32 AM

I countdown to member numbers sounds fun, but no such plugin exists. :/

I appreciate the thoughts guys!

That's a count up, not a count down Tongue


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Bill-117 - 11-04-2007 07:57 PM

So when it hits 500, we have 500 members...

I have seem it on other sites thou. Perhaps a different vetsion of PHPB2?


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Bill-117 - 11-05-2007 03:16 PM

Isn't it just as easy to say PHPBB? I mean, the finger is RIGHT THERE... ON the B key, where otherwise it goes 1 and 1/5 of an inch to type 2.

And yeah, I thought I saw that on some forum... hm... I think it may have been an Iron Warriors forum. o.O


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Xander - 11-05-2007 03:36 PM

We use MyBB, not PHPBB. Tongue

Well then, there is the problem right there. Obviously Xander didn't feed the mice spinning the wheel in the server!

consider yourself lucky, when it is you have to spend half your week going over and over numbers which don't even exist like the square root of minus one!


RE: 20,000 Posts. - Willmark - 11-09-2007 04:05 PM

Interestingly enough the site went from 10,000 posts in August and reached 20,000 in late Oct. Nice problem to have methinks.
