13,000 - Darn!

I really hate the number 13. I don't see it as an unlucky number, it is just a number that does not sit well with me. And now here is the thing. I will have to see 13 in front of my number of posts for 1000 consecutive posts. Can't stand it. OK, see whether I can create some nice combo objectives so that I can survive 13,000:


1000 posts - 100 posts per week - 10 weeks. Maybe by New Year?

24 blog comments below


That's a strange combo. Laughing

I thought you were going to do 7000 post in a month to keep Frihost count up by yourself!! laugh

It was 700 post per month, not 7000.

Quickly, make it to the 13000 mark so you will post even more to try to get your post number out of the 13000. Very Happy

Hehe, Ghost Rider what a great idea, BUT, I can't believe it, I'm ready to post, and there are no posts to comment on. How on earth am I going to get past 13,000 if no one is posting? Crying or Very sad

OK. Maybe I can start some new threads. Idea

7000, 700 not much difference there. just an extra zero - laugh
standready on Thu Oct 20, 2011 3:19 am
Don't think of it as 13000, think of it as 32C8. Or 11001011001000. Or MMMMMMMMMMMMM!

Yeh perhaps we should both work on new topics. I haven't made a new topic in quite some time!

I'll work on that.
Ghost Rider103 on Thu Oct 20, 2011 5:26 am
OK. With this I'm hitting 13,000 posts. Now for the mad scramble to get out of 13,000 ..... eeeeek Shocked

Next goal is 13013, which is easily doable - but after that 13131 - a MUCH longer haul.
deanhills on Sat Oct 22, 2011 6:52 pm
according to my calculations: 700/31=22 'rounded' per day. 13131-13013=118 118/22= 6 days rounded. Not a very long haul, Dean! Laughing Wink Rolling Eyes Razz

That is a very impressive amount of post.

Wasn't the frihost elite rank 7500? You're eventually going to double the highest rank on frihost. Perhaps we need to give you another rank, unless you're still enjoying the current rank you have.
Ghost Rider103 on Sun Oct 23, 2011 3:37 am
@Ghost Rider. Took us so long to get to Elite Frihoster, can't imagine there would be much sense in looking for another title just for one person in the exact same way we've done before.

Think On the other hand. How about someone who has made 10,000 posts get to design his own title? For approval by Bondings of course. I can't imagine that there will be many non-staff Frihosters getting to 10,000 posts, but it could be fun to see what we come up with when we do pass that mark.
Very Happy

@Standready. Agreed. Particularly this week, there have been many more posts available to comment on, and that makes it much easier to make the numbers fly. Must say I'm not that averse to 13 any more as it looks completely different when the other digits of 13000 are populated by whole numbers instead of zeros. Would be great if I could get to 13111 or 13113 tonight before I sign out.
Very Happy

That is very true.

Designing your own icon might be unfair though. Some people are design challenged and might not be very good at it. Plus, they would have to follow some guidelines, it would need to be in the same format as the rest of the titles so it still looks uniform.

Plus some might not look so great.

Perhaps it is best to just leave it for now. As there aren't hardly any Elite Frihosters yet. Yet "Ghost of Frihost" ranks out there. Whatever that is.

Ghost Rider103 on Thu Oct 27, 2011 12:24 am
Sorry Ghost Rider. I did not communicate this right. I did not mean designing something artistically, I meant "designing" the title like Crusader, or Fanatic or something along those lines.

Probably better word would be "choosing" a title. Once chosen someone like you would put it up there.

They actually do that at FreeWebSpace after "X" thousand posts so that is where I got the idea from.
Very Happy
deanhills on Thu Oct 27, 2011 12:29 pm
OK. I've just reached my second goal, 13131. Looks great. Don't know why I put 13133 so soon after, so will make 13212 my next goal instead.
deanhills on Thu Oct 27, 2011 8:22 pm
Dean i'm against ya there 13 is a favorite number of mine.
Blaster on Sun Oct 30, 2011 8:01 am
Great Blaster. I'm beginning to like it too. It's amazing how fast it is going, and thanks to you I was able to do a marathon session today. I've just reached the 200 mark. 800 more to go.
Very Happy
deanhills on Sun Oct 30, 2011 1:03 pm
Can't believe it. Now at 250. Although probably lots to do with Blaster's input - that was a real Blast from the Past. Hit us with plenty of energy and now it is quiet again. Darn! And I get the feeling people are getting exhausted from all of the posting. Wish we could get some new faces in!
deanhills on Wed Nov 02, 2011 8:19 pm
I was hoping to get to 14,000 by the end of the year. Wonder whether I will be able to make it though. Only realized today when I was thinking Frihost post number wise that there are only three weeks to the end of the year! Phew! What a year it's been.
deanhills on Fri Dec 09, 2011 6:21 pm
285 posts more. Knowing that you post 300-400 a month, I think you'll make it. Just give everything you've got.
loremar on Fri Dec 09, 2011 6:30 pm
I can't post that much more than the average though Loremar. As that would probably amount to spam. So for me to post more others need to post more too. Looks as though our numbers are going down again. Darn!
deanhills on Sat Dec 10, 2011 7:50 pm
Aha! Made it! This will be post No. 14,000. In retrospect the 13,000s had not been that bad. Particularly when other numbers were added to it that provided it with a doubling effect or made for an interesting combination. Like 13131 etc.

Can't believe how the time has flown. 14,000 and strangely enough, I think I'll be happier at 15,000, but think I'm in less of a hurry to get to it. Once I get to it however, think it may be time to retire a little.
deanhills on Fri Dec 23, 2011 11:42 am
Hey Congrats! You made it Very Happy
loremar on Fri Dec 23, 2011 12:58 pm
Congratulations dean! Geez, I just got into the terrible twos (thousands)!
standready on Sat Dec 24, 2011 12:08 am
Thanks! I don't know how I did it. Probably need to slow down some! Very Happy
