Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52

Then I looked around. At my current annualised rate of posting, I will overtake the likes of BT and tedster in a mere... 40 years.
That's 40 years, if they never post again.
So I did some number crunching. I know of 3 members over 20K posts- apologies if I've missed anyone. Here are the stats:
BT: Joined 21-Sep-99 / Posts 23609
Rate: 6.5 per day
Tedster: Joined 26-May-00 / Posts 25484
Rate: 7.6 per day
But of the Big 3, the most prolific poster is...
jdMorgan: Joined 31-Mar-02 / Posts 20911
Rate 7.8 per day. Just... wow.
Guess I need to improve from my 1.8 :(
So congratulations on hitting the 650 mark, and thanks for all your quality contributions amongst those posts. :)
That is not to say my esteemed colleagues don't make quality posts, just that volume is not the primary factor you should aim for!
Makes even moderators feel inadequate. ;-)
What's even more amazing is the job that my fellow moderators and administrators do every day - something that you don't see reflected in their post count. They devote incredible amounts of time each and every day to making WebmasterWorld a better place.
As far as your post count, I wouldn't be concerned. As engine said, it's now how big it is, it's how you use it. ;-)
since you are mentioning anniversaries, i just noticed my 5th was yesterday.
my rate for 5 years is about 2.25/day but probably half again that rate since delurking and maybe twice that since reaching "Senior" status.
the more you learn here the more you want to give back or pay forward.
don't forget that some posts don't count such as posts in Foo, even if they are quality Foo.
thanks for all your quality contributions in the past year and Foo on the rest...
That would substantially improve my post count- while not helping those Do Gooding UberPosters, who seem to restrict their contributions to actually helping people. The cheek.
engine (@3.1), I hope my quality is improving as I learn more from my fellow members.
bakedjake, you would say that, languishing as you do at a mere 1.4. Even I beat that!
Note: I'm not really concerned about my post count (I only noticed I went Senior when I was scanning one of the Google threads for something I had said). I was just stunned when I realised tedster had made 40 times the number of posts as I had made in my first year. I thought I was relatively active in Google Search News and to a lesser extent, Marketing World
dunno how Jim and Ted do it! & encyclo deserves a merit award :)
SuzyUK (@1.9), I work mostly on name recognition, although longevity adds kudos (more so than post count, as a general rule).
Anyway, I too would like to thank all the members of WebmasterWorld. I am frequently blown away by the insight and technical expertise shared for free on these boards. I am proud to be part of this community.
