I have changed the name of this thread to "HTG Milestones" in order to recognize all important achievements, not just numeric ones. Unfortunately, right now the most recent ones are mostly numeric.

whs and Lighthouse: congrats on making the 3000(!) club. Make that *creating* the club; the two of you are the only members.
The Geek: congrats on making 1000 posts on your own forum. And you've done that while also writing your regular articles and running the show.
Aleeve: congrats on making the 500 club and on your wiki article.

Jack(7h3r1pp3r), Scott "7h3" moderator, and Justin (jd2066) haven't tripped any significant numeric boundaries but all continue to be top contributors.

For myself, I'm just glad to no longer be in the 700 club! What else do we have to celebrate? Also, when are the T-shirts coming? :-)

It would be nice if we had a way to count the happy people (as a total) - those that walked away with the answer they were looking for. I think that would be the true measure of success.

Lots of people who do get help say thank you. But, imagine all of the other drive-bys -- folks who googled up a problem and found the answer here. We'll never know how many of those there were.

@The Geek, how about a "Thank you!" button that folks could click on if they got help from the articles or the forum? Then everyone who gets helped, even if they don't become members, can let us know. Then we can watch the counter(s) go up and up until one day it says "over 1 zillion served!" :-)

This is a computer forum. Shouldn't the mile/kilometre stones/kilograms be in binary?

@mpc, you are a good man. I am glad you are around.
@ScottW, The problem I found is that about half of the posters seem to vanish after they got the answer that looked like the right answer to their problem.
@Lighthouse, What's the difference? Decimal or binary.

Lighthouse, you want to change milestones to kilometrestones? Or kilometrekilograms? I think no one would understand what was meant. You can still have milestones even when you use the metric system. Also, "welcome to the 0b101110111000 club" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

whs, you are correct that many people get their answer(s) and leave. But, I'd still be curious to see how many people would click on a "Thank you" button. It's the only way I can think of to measure happy people.

ScottW, I think the "thank you" button is a great idea. I wonder whether it can be put in easily. Btw, what are you doing up this time of the day?

When I get busy on my system, I lose track of time. Looks like I was up late again last night (this morning?). I should have been sleeping at that hour.
