Just out of curiosity(not that it really matters) does anyone know why the number of post i make always stay at 180 even though i keep making more posts? I dunno if its something to do with the board, or my computer... has this happened to anyone else?

Funny you should mention it - yesterday I noticed Prin was/is getting perilously close to the :crazy: ten thousand mark and now I'm wondering if she's gone over and we've missed the Woo-Hoo!!! Mine's not changing...maybe Prin has broken the counter !?!???!!!!!

mafiaprincess
April 26th, 2006, 10:36 PM
LOL, she's still about 71 off, so someone else must have broken the counter.

But, you are right, mine's not changing anymore either, and I didn't notice till you mentioned it. I feel jipped! *cries*

Mine weren't changing.. now they seem to be.. I was at 558 most of the day even though I posted a lot. But Since Midnight came it 'fixed' me.

I lied.. every few posts the number changes. I don't know what's up with it.

are posts threads you start or anything that you reply too - maybe Marko can explain this

I guess in "posts" talk that's the OPPOSITE of being neutered:D !!

Prin
April 26th, 2006, 11:41 PM
Ok, so ONLY mine keeps going up. I'm telling you all, I want to.. no wait.. I NEED to share! Come on! :D

Prin
April 26th, 2006, 11:42 PM
Oh wait.. maybe it's not going up... This one should be 36.. Nope, didn't count it. We're all in the same boat. Maybe Marko has it rigged so that nobody hits 10 000... Maybe 10 000 posts is like the year 2K disaster but for this site? Maybe after 9999, it can't count anymore and the whole site gets lost? oooooo (twilight zone music plays)

mummummum
April 26th, 2006, 11:54 PM
:party: Well Prin - if yer goin' down... we're all goin' down wif ya.:party:

Prin
April 26th, 2006, 11:57 PM
Oh- it's going up again... Hey... maybe only the ones with quality info count.:D Maybe if we're sarcastic, the number stays as is? lol this should be 39...

mafiaprincess
April 27th, 2006, 12:00 AM
Every 2 or 3 posts I make it goes up by one..
Unless you are Prin, cause she's a godess :)

Anyone wanna lay a wager as to when she'll "cross the line"?:D

mafiaprincess
April 27th, 2006, 12:56 AM
At the normal post rate, or this odd twilight zone rate?

Prin
April 27th, 2006, 12:58 AM

lol Every post you post, I think mine goes up at least 4.:D

I wager Sunday- at any rate. I wonder what'll happen. Maybe I'll finally get out of senior member and move into decaying member. :evil:

mafiaprincess
April 27th, 2006, 01:02 AM
Ouch.. better get Prin her cane.

At the normal rate I see you getting it in 3 more days.. Twilight zone, probably double that.

Damn, I posted again, so add at least 4 more to Prin. lol.

(that's 4 posts for me and staying at 562)

Prin
April 27th, 2006, 01:03 AM
lol no- these posts aren't counting. We can post in here all we want. ;) I'll just post all my answers in this thread and stay at 39 forever.

BTW- funny you mention it... I inherited a cane last weekend.:D (there's no old smilie...)

mafiaprincess

Oh, so you were prepaired for your decline into the posting aged? Cool! :p

rainbow
April 27th, 2006, 01:19 AM
LOL....let's keep her posting in this thread to slow her down.:D

Prin
April 27th, 2006, 01:44 AM
lol you can't slow me down.. I'm already at a crawl. With these new arcade games, who has time to post? My post record has gone from 27/day in the beginning to 23 now... Slacking!

Prin
April 27th, 2006, 01:50 AM
Oops, it just went up by 3 in the last 2 minutes... I think it's moving on its own!:crazy:

mafiaprincess
April 27th, 2006, 02:20 AM
Think you are eating my posts.. Mine seems to be going backwards..

Give me back my post count!

Prin
April 27th, 2006, 02:24 AM
:evil: Bwahahaha!!!! Never! They're mine.. allllll mine!! (or so it seems...)

mafiaprincess
April 27th, 2006, 02:29 AM
*tries to steal a post from Prin*
Nope.. that's like 6 posts, non moving counter...

Prin

Will today be the day? I have an exam tomorrow so I have a lot of procrastinating to do..;)

April 27th, 2006, 11:32 AM
I've noticed that my posts in the Off Topic forum don't get counted, but posts in other forums, "meaningful" posts, count...doesn't Marko understand how important the work we do in the off topic forum really is????

I was almost about to post a thread on this about 5 months ago when I realized that was what happens, to me anyway...but it made me wonder...how many posts has Prin REALLY made????? But I see you all are having your off topic posts counted, so I don't know. I think we need some answers from one of the big guys!!!!!

mafiaprincess
April 27th, 2006, 12:52 PM
You know, I never noticed till now. Hmmm

Prin
April 27th, 2006, 05:04 PM
OMG I never even asked myself how many posts I probably have really made... I'm in the off topic a lot.. All my polls... All my rants... :eek: I'm probably somewhere above 20000 by now! lol I still say Sunday for the 10 000 though... It seems to count really slowly.;)

meggie1425
April 27th, 2006, 05:04 PM
Ya, i just noticed a few days ago. I was kinda falling behind in my number of posts cuz ive been on this board since july/04 and i ONLY have 180 posts... I was trying to get more!!! (lol, i know im pretty lame:p ) Well at least theres quit a few people with this problem so maybe it will get looked into!

Joey.E.CockersMommy
April 27th, 2006, 05:15 PM
pets.ca must have 100's of people just sitting in a room just counting our posts - they are only human I am sure they must mess up at times.

Maybe they will hire us to count the posts that come in :D

meggie1425
April 27th, 2006, 05:17 PM
Thats true... such a busy board like this cant run smoothly ALL the time!!

meggie1425
April 27th, 2006, 05:18 PM
Hey, my post number went up by 1! maybe for every 20 posts we make, the counter goes up by 1?!:D

mafiaprincess
April 27th, 2006, 05:37 PM
Oh so Meggie's eating the posts now.. I want mine back!

Prin
April 27th, 2006, 08:11 PM
LOL We're alllll stealing them... Or maybe you just don't post as much as you think you do...:D

mafiaprincess
April 27th, 2006, 10:45 PM
LOL, I think I've just had more to say in the last week than usual, and chosen to actually voice it. I often just don't bother.. But I think it's been a lot in the off topic..

mummummum
April 27th, 2006, 11:28 PM
Hey, my post number went up by 1! maybe for every 20 posts we make, the counter goes up by 1?!:D

So... that would put Prin at one hundred and ninety-nine thousand, one hundred and eighty posts in just over a year hmmmm... major props to Prin.

Prin
April 28th, 2006, 02:39 AM
I was framed! FRAMED!!! They're not mine! I'm only on here max 3 minutes a day. Really. Umm... hmmm... ok... I'll stop posting for a while (after I finish the new posts).

AliSam
April 28th, 2006, 07:21 AM
I have posted quite a bit in the last couple of days and my count has only gone up around 5. I should probably be up over 200 (not that that is much). Oh well, no biggie.

mummummum
April 28th, 2006, 11:07 PM
:troll: So... Prin baby - wazzup? 9975 ???? Here it is 12:06 am - you coulda easily crested over that 10 thou mark and you're....just ...stallin'. Wazzamatter Prin ? Huh ? Ya scared ???? :troll:

Prin
April 28th, 2006, 11:10 PM
lol lol funny, I'm thinking the opposite after posting like 6 posts in the same thread (dog food) earlier... I'm movin' along... Keepin' busy... I'm tellin' ya, Sunday. The weekend is usually much slower posting than the week.

Plus I just got the Sex and the City final season on DVD... I can't wait to see what it's like when they say the actual words without being sensored all the time... ooh lala!:D

Prin
April 28th, 2006, 11:25 PM
22 left!! I come here to post so that I can get some words out without actually raising the number.:evil:

mafiaprincess
April 28th, 2006, 11:41 PM
Forget sunday if you are up most of the night you'll find enough to post on by morning, lol.

Then we can rename you as the wise woman of dogs.

Prin
April 29th, 2006, 01:20 AM
lol no way! I was up most of last night (and probably most of the week).. Tonight it's off to bed EARLY! (And no, it's not late yet... The birds aren't chirping...)

mafiaprincess
April 29th, 2006, 01:22 AM
I nightly tell myself I'll go to bed before the birds are chirping.. and I just find random things I HAVE to do at like 3am.. Really screws up my day, but it just keeps happening, oops.

Prin
April 29th, 2006, 01:30 AM
Me too. Plus the birds are extra early this year for some reason. (Might be because I have a nest right above my window so I hear them better).:crazy:

shannonRN
April 29th, 2006, 02:04 AM
I don't see why you guys can't just go to bed at a decent hour.

Do you have Mocking Birds? They sing all night and beautifully! Prin can't quit now - only 8 to go!

But now I see I'm not getting any either and nobody's up anyway.

mafiaprincess
April 29th, 2006, 12:14 PM
My sleep schedule is messed up.. I just find things I have to do, or start to read a book I can't put down and next thing I know it's 4-5am and I'm cussing as I'm turning out the light.

Went to bed at 2:30am last night.. and I'm not thinking I slept for a long time... Felt like I tossed for forever.. which makes me not want to go to bed..

Prin
April 29th, 2006, 06:37 PM
I don't see why you guys can't just go to bed at a decent hourlol nice, Ms 3AM! lol
But now I see I'm not getting any either and nobody's up anyway.GASP! Your sex life is none of our business...:D :D hee hee

I went to bed early- around 2:30ish and I slept like a babeh, until I had to wake up to go downtown for breakfast and a parking ticket.:rolleyes: For me, waking up in the morning is the worst part of the day, so I put it off till later in the day.

mummummum
April 29th, 2006, 06:47 PM
Okey-dokey Prin - so what's it gonna be? Is "Tonight THE Night"??? Cuz I don't want miss the count down and rollover.

Prin
April 29th, 2006, 07:10 PM

YOU are soooooo baaad!! Can't believe I said that and didn't even think twice! Must have been too late for me at the time. And ..yeah... hubby was sound asleep. If you want a real word picture . . . he's recovering from a knee replacement and I have asthma. So... no ... not much of a sex life!

This is sooooo exciting.:highfive:

Kind of like watching your car's odometer reach the 100,000 mark.:crazy:

And Prin is such a nightowl :D and usually posts after my bedtime so I'm probably going to miss it.:(

Prin
April 29th, 2006, 10:41 PM
OMG!!! 9999!! Should I wait? Should I hold out until you're all here to witness the changeover? What if this post accidentally counts? What then?

Prin
April 29th, 2006, 10:44 PM
Ok, it didn't change. (Phew!!) But there aren't too many posts happening tonight either, so looks like I was right, and it will be Sunday! lol

It just occurred to me what I said so I just had to clarify......

Nowadays, EDT and PDT could mean "something else"......so I just wanted to clarify that I'm not "on" anything.:D

Except for the "occasinonal" Kokanee or Bacardi and Coke :evil: :D (oops, I mean Safeway Select Caffeine Free Cola):D :D

Prin
