Five Figures

Recommended Posts

I thought about whether to start a thread for a milestone post number, but screw it.

 

Close to 18 years ago I heard that a number of fans who had been active on another site had formed Extreme Skins, so thought it'd be a fun place to join. Back then the Skins had undergone a bit of a dry spell in rebuilding after a significant time of glory, but after winning a division title in '99, thought we were back on the verge of greatness. I remember a NY Times article saying that they might as well etch "Washington Redskins" on the Lombardi to be presented following the 2000 season. Well, we all know what happened that season, and 18 years later, we are all hoping for that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

 

Anyway, I wanted to use the occasion of my 10,000th post to thank the ES community for making this a special place. From Die Hard, Om, and the others who started this place, to lunatics like Zoony and RufusTFirefly.......hell, every one of you.........for the great conversations and the laughter. We've been through a lot, from the euphoria of Saint Joe returning to commiserating over the senseless murder of #21 ST, and a whole lot of stuff in between.  You guys are truly a cool bunch, and the Xs and Os knowledge and everything else you have imparted have, and will continue to mean, a lot to me.

 

Keep on making ES a great place!!

Congrats, and keep up the good work around here.

 

Yeah back in the day, we say a few more posts like this.  And really was a milestone when you could change your avatar from graduating up levels from rookie to bench warmer to field goal team etc.

 

Was always exciting to see new avatars to choose from :)

I have been here 10 years and am not even close to that number. Congrats! 

 

Edit.....does 10 years count as a milestone? I want a party in August.

Congrats on those 10k hail2skins!

 

Good job buddy. Keep it up. I agree that this is a cool place to be. And count me in for the ES cap or jacket or whatever the mods want to throw us. That's well deserved.

I think the real goal should be to start ten thousand threads :ols:

Who was that teenage ADD Packers fan back in the day who started something like 50 threads his first week here? Got slapped with NNT, and probably eventually banned.

I'm creeping up on 10 years here and not even close.  If Tailgate posts counted, I would probably be well over 10k.  I spend way to much time in there.  I usually just read the Stadium.  Many of  the threads move to fast for me.  That and some of the discussions here get a bit rabid.

 

Congrats!

I got here when the place  opened in 2000. 18 years.

 

I was just 33 years old when I came here. I will be 51 this year.

 

Long time. :kickcan:

Hopefully, you didn't when posting your 25.000th, 30.000th and 35.000th posts!

08/11/05- will be 13 years for me this summer.

35k posts in 13 years? That's 2K posts a year roughly, which is like 6 posts a day., everyday, for 13 years...

You sure you got a life besides ES?

When I saw this post, I thought it was a reference to SM's wife and the tweet she made to Russini during that scandal. She said something like, "enjoy grinding for five figures." So, a little disappointed, as I really wanted to revel in that filth again. But congratulations.
