Pure vanity post: I beat the Illinois Forum on reaching 3,000 posts
With this post I will be at 3,007 posts while the Illinois Forum will have 2,999 posts. The next person to reply to an Illinois Forum post will get that lucky 3,000th post. We have a lot of activity here this past week. Hopefully we can keep this up and make the grassroots Democratic organization in Illinois stronger. A selfish pat on the back for myself for 3,000 posts, but much more importantly, a pat on the back of the all the regulars here who have helped us get so close to 3,000 posts as a Forum.

1. Eeek!
I think I might've just done it...and I'm a rank n00b. I was just joining in the Chicago check-in thread.

Congratulations!!!

2. Sweet! Congrats to you!
Having the 3,000 posts is like being the 1 millionth customer, except without the confetti and prize.

I'm glad the 3,000th post was "Chicago!".

It could have been worse....


A very very lengthy treatise on the landfill tussle, with lots of numbers and footnotes?


An Attack of the Floaty Hearts :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: in the We Love Obama thread? :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya:

A thread devoted to dredging up embarrassing examples of Blago presidential buzz from 2000?

4. Good for You!
I hope some of the other state forums (fora) start to pick up steam too. I dislike moribundity. (moribundsomeness?). We need to start kicking ideas around for 2006 and beyond.

5. Iowa, eh?
I checked out your profile and it said you are from Iowa. I'm glad I'm not the only one that wants to get the state forums more active. That said, perhaps there should be somewhat of a competition between the forums? See who can get the most posts? That might lead to frivolous posts, but those shouldn't really count. Only quality posts.... how could we get this done?

7. Congrats, I have a question
How do you see how many posts you have once you've passed 1000?

8. Here's the answer
Next to your name when you make a post, you will see several icons. Click on the icon that is a human face. You will get your profile to pop up. In your profile, it will tell you how many posts you have.
