Post Competition idea

    How about a place where we can look up how many posts everyone has. Sort it via the highest poster (Bryan on top of course, and go down….then we can see where everyone falls in the posting race)

    Actually, there already is in this incredible forum engine, phpBB.

    Hit the Member List at the top, and then sort by posts by hitting the link at the top of that column.

    Alternately, you can hit this link as I have already done the “work.”

    Thanks for the comment!

    “The Voice” and I are neck and neck.  It was 178 to 178 before this post.  Feel the pressure…

    Hey, y’all really don’t want me to unleash perl and expect scripts on this site, do you? Or, to quote Danny Glover in Silverado, “Now I don’t wanna shoot you and you don’t wanna be dead.”

    I can spell “3 stars.”  I spell it R - E - T- R- O.

    Soon I will have an alternate spelling too.

    Really? I spell it R - O - L - A - I - D - S.  Or do I have it confused with something else?...

    I’m thinking the R-O-L-A-I-D-S quip was a shot across my bow?   Hehe.  Well I have to say that truly the stars are fun, but its the forum that counts.  Besides, once I have 1000 posts, where do I go from there?  The FAQ doesn’t say!  Well it will all be moot soon.

    R - O - L - A - I - D - S spells Relief!  Am I the only one who has ever heard that advertising slogan?

    I’ve heard it before, but I still don’t understand your joke.  Please explain further.

    Bryan said “I can spell “3 stars.” I spell it R - E - T- R- O.”
    I said I spell it “R - O - L - A - I - D - S” because “rolaids spells releif” is also is a spelling that does not match what the actaul word was. Ok, so it was dumb. I didn’t think anyone would even comment on it.
