I just checked and the forum is about to hit the one million mark...who will get the prize and what will it be?

Okay.. here is the question.. is the 1 millionth post gonna be above the bilge or in the bilge...? Is it gonna be a political rant, a religious rant... or what? What are the odds...?

I think Joe may have something planned. That would work for me.
I just pray it's not from some very young, 'old salt' from Myrtle Beach who's got the world by the tail and has yet to notice what the tail's attached to.

Dang, if I didn't have "important" things to do with the girlfriend, I would hand around and try for the millionth post. Damned couple-hood. Although she did put me on her costco membership card yesterday, if that's not a sign of commitment, I don't know what is.:D

Wild Dingo
04-14-2007, 12:55 PM
nah the gnomes not like that ;)

Now Joeboy or MMike? thems a whole different kettle of fish those two are just as likely to sit smugly watchin then in a flurry of posts when it gets to 999,997 race like hell to get it!!

Sooo? the prize is?? Glenfiddich? bubbly? subscription for a year? a set of plans of the gnomes choice? what???

or am I self inducing insomnia for nothing here? :eek:

Although I'd be honored to have the 1,000,000th post, I'd rather it went to either Joe or one of the other prolific, or at least gregarious(Dingo) posters. I'd rather not see Dutch or his ilk at the podium for this. I'd even settle for a message from Scot, his highness(although it kills the whole "lottery attitude" we have going on).

What lottery? What prize.. Dan, what am I missing..
Where is the form.. I'm in.. I need to win something.. anything... Never have...
Just got my notice for a renewal.. I'd love to throw it away knowing the next year's subscription is free.

Wild Dingo
04-14-2007, 12:59 PM
oooohhh not another scot groveller! :rolleyes: havent yous fellas realized yet that hes not into grovelling? I mean he loves bein loved and all that but grovelling? nah hes the legendary gnome of maine is our Scoty boy and loves bein taken to task over his legendary indescresions and lies about his height a thing perpetrated and exacibated by Joeboy at one woodenboat show :rolleyes:

Now Im thinking you know I reckon it will probably be the great grouchinator Donn who will get it... a quick sharp one liner slamming someones spelling to smitherines :D

Wonder if the gnomes watching?

I thought of asking "Oh that Bob" to log in for him, but Bob has his own life to get on with.

I have a feeling a certain Antipodean has set his sights on it. Which I thing would flaminsreaminballshanginoutupyermissusawesome.

Gareth...if you're referring to my number of posts...it's closer to .0005 percent......:D

I'm going to beg (politely) to differ, you have approx 10,000, that's 1% of 1,000,000, or am I missing something. Now if we were to judge the value of your posts, well some are hard hitting and insightful, some are funny and some are....

Nanoose
04-14-2007, 05:23 PM
OK....so chuck's got 1%, and Dingo's almost there too.

Joe's got 2%.

Wonder what Meerkat had?

Any other biggies out there?

Nanoose
04-14-2007, 05:34 PM
OK....so chuck's got 1%, and Dingo's almost there too.

Joe's got 2%, and so does Donn.

Wonder what Meerkat had? Oh! Thanks Donn - 3%.

So, those 5 account for 9% of the posts. Airlie's in here too someplace, if we'd add up Uncas and Airlie together. What would that be, Jamie?

Any other biggies out there?

....

paladin
04-14-2007, 05:36 PM
What happened....this morning I had a bit over 5000 and this afternoon I got 10000.........that's wierd.....but then again...I been at it longer than the other fellers too.......:D

Nanoose
04-14-2007, 05:39 PM
OK....so chuck's got 1%, and Dingo's almost there too....and Katherine!

Joe's got 2%, and so does Donn.

Wonder what Meerkat had? Oh! Thanks Donn - 3%.

So, those 6 account for 10% of the posts. Airlie's in here too someplace, if we'd add up Uncas and Airlie together. What would that be, Jamie?....wait a minute....here we go....about 17,600 for the two of them....ALMOST another 2%.

Any other biggies out there?

Nanoose ask Donn.. he keeps track.. Why I ain't sure but he does.:eek:

Hwyl
04-14-2007, 05:56 PM
Jack Heinlen /Ishmael is up there in numbers too

Nanoose
04-14-2007, 05:59 PM
Ya - Ish's around 13,500.

Ish's 13K and Jamie's 17K give us another 3% putting us at 13% of all the posts between those 8 people.

Hwyl
04-14-2007, 06:04 PM
Jack has 8000 under his ral name so that's 21K, there may be more personae

S.V. Airlie
04-14-2007, 06:07 PM
okay.. percentages above and below the bilge please....I'd be happy with numbers.. I figure 70-30.

Nanoose
04-14-2007, 06:08 PM
OK...so where are we at....time for some updating....


OK....so chuck's got 1%, and Dingo's almost there too....and Katherine!

Joe's got 2%, and so does Donn and Ish.

Wonder what Meerkat had? Oh! Thanks Donn - 3%.

So, those 7 account for 12% of the posts. Airlie's in here too at 1.76% if we'd add up Uncas and Airlie together. That makes it 8 posters and about 14% of the posts.

Any other biggies out there?

Nanoose
04-14-2007, 06:12 PM
Well, with that one you now have 1 in the bilge....but I guess no one has any "below the bilge" because we don't have the "all wet" category.

S.V. Airlie
04-14-2007, 06:18 PM
Sometimes Donn, I think there should be a category below the bilge. If there was, I'd probably have a few.. You?

Nanoose
04-14-2007, 08:07 PM
Dunno what's goin on....I was sure I posted this a while back....

JimD's at 10K too, so we can add another 1% to our total

No ice, but add just a touch of water, trust me. Remember the old forum where "the bilge" and boat related topics actually competed for the greatist number of posts?
