With our first member approaching 20000 posts should we create a special category and badge?

 

Here's a rundown of the current badges in use

20000? Far too much time on their hands (or too much caffeine)


Input: 'Terranovered’ Versalab M3 + Mahlkonig EK43 Turkish burrs + Niche

Output: KVdW Speedster + V60 + AeroPress + Syphon + Bialetti Induction Moka Pot + Bialetti Mucka Express + jar of instant for visitors..

Oh yes we certainly should.....

It should be even more "gold" than the current 10000 post badge.

Is it possible to make it a gif - possibly with sparkles and maybe pulsing colours.

 

Any poster reaching 20000 high quality and informative* posts would be fully deserving...............

 

* obviously any posts that aren't "high quality and informative" wouldn't be counted, so any drivel would be deducted prior to the count.

(This should give a bit of lee-way on designing the gif ;-) )


There is a fine line between "Hobby" and "Manic Obsession"

high quality and informative post

 

PS: By that criteria I think I have about 2 qualifying posts :-)

Mmmmm, I missed this and the poll. I recall that when the mighty Boots was nearing 10,000 we had a competition to estimate the date and time he would reach his 10,000th post. That seems no time at all ago. I think he will reach his 30,000th post on 21st October 2017 at 19.50.

Missed the poll. Surely there must be an award ceremony involving being handed the Rusty Spoon of Truth.....maybe even by Ruth.

 

Well done Boots

Or - if he is at the lever day - a lever - also to remind him of the fun he used to have and the great shots he used to get…..

Not sure how I stumbled upon this thread (oh ok, I was checking what badge I was going to proudly display when I chalk up my 1000 posts next week, only to find I'm not!) and I wondered why Mr B didn't get his mightily impressive and well deserved 20000 badge after all.

 

I know I'm new but questions need to be asked.

keep asking these questions and you will soon have your 2000 badge , stay away from the 3000 territory though as this is exclusively mine ;-)

It must be because you get your point across succinctly while I have to waffle on for half a dozen posts, I expect!
