HTG Milestones (was: The 200 Club!)(83 posts)
The "HOOLIGAN" club, no matter where I go people end up calling me hooligan,my last name sounds very much like "Hot Lips Houlihan",the woman in the T.V series MASH. BTW,most of the guys called me hot lips when I was in the navy,at the time the show was very popular.I'll settle for sparky
Well, I see you guys are not impressed with my 200th. I thought there might be a prize, such as a shirt: "I posted on HTG forums and all I got was this lousy T-shirt". :)
5000 club? I've been here 2 weeks, so that's 100 posts a week. If I keep it up, I'll make it to the 5000 club in about a year. Cheers!
@Geek, they were plain, came in nearly a dozen colors and in S, M, L, XL. We used a lot for the Elks. Made logos for the back and names for the front and printed them on special paper and transfered that with an iron. Used Word and Gimp - worked well.
@whs doesn't that printing paper cost a bit of money cuz when i went to get some one time it seemed pretty spendy but maybe it went down now cuz that was like a year or two ago?
The paper was not really expensive either. The ladies got that from Michaels too on sale and with a 50% off coupon. So I don't think it was much. I did not do the accounting and the lady that would know is on a cruise. So I do not have very exact figures. Just the price of the shirts I remember.
Here is a name tag for the kitchen crew.
@TheGeek, have you ever looked at Cafe Press? While they are a bit pricey, the nice thing is that you do not actually buy any stock, and therefore do not have to worry about inventory. They are a print-on-demand for all of their items and all you need to do is upload images, pick the items to put them on, and then set your markup (and even setting the markup is optional). And yes, the do ship international.
I have looked at them briefly before... the print options seemed a bit limited, but I'll probably end up using them or one of the other similar ones. Would just have to be limited quantity.
Ouch! I don't like being called a bean counter. It has a negative connotation. I can only speak for myself, but I think milestones are worth celebrating and they don't have to be numeric ones. Like the return of a top contributor from a short hiatus. Or when our host, The Geek, put up the wiki. All good milestones.
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!" :-)
@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.
