June 7th will be 13 years for me. I have yet to even hit 2000 posts. Guess I'm not very talkative? I'm here all the time, though !

Two? Don't be overly optimistic now!

You just need to be more obnoxious.

I'm approaching 11 years, that's scary enough!

I originally joined in December 2002 under another name. I changed to "Pearl" a year later.

And I'm still here. I need to get a life.

Coming up on 13 years for me. I joined because of a mysterious clip floating around that purported to be a new U2 song, and I wanted to hear it and share thoughts with like-minded folks.

That song turned out to be Beautiful Day and I've been here ever since.

 
And this despite the presence of one despicable Elfa.

This made me feel really old. I'm getting closer and closer to my 10 years here. Congrats, Ax. The superthreads were fun.

Maybe a Kunstmuseum show is in order?

Only ten years? N00b...
(I say that only because your post count makes n00bs of us all!)

No response I could come up with would be as amazing or as fitting as Bonnie's, so I'm not going to try. Congrats and here's to many more years of cynicism and breaking interference posting records!

...I can't even remember when I joined (1998? '99?), so I dunno when my anniversary was.

And thank you as well... aside from everything else, without the Kunstmuseum, I would never have had a reason to visit Liechtenstein, which is now one of my favourite places I've been.

(I would post a suitably monolithic photo, but I'm laboriously posting from my phone.)

It's funny how some posters lasted longer than many of the mods

I joined this site a sixteen year old obnoxious fanlad who would sneak on in the high school library to post about how great U2 are while listening to almost nothing but U2. Now I'm a twenty-six year old obnoxious cynic who hopes nobody at work asks him what that light blue tab is while he's posting about how great bands other than U2 are while listening to almost nothing by U2. I've changed a lot since I showed up in this joint and it's changed a lot too, but it's been my online home. I'm glad the blue's never changed. I remember when I signed up here, there were a bunch of posters who were so knowledgeable about U2; I looked up to them and thought I'd never be as well known amongst the fan community as they are. I hung on their every word. Then I became the setlist guy.

I'm getting sentimental. I'll stop. Thanks for the memories and the good times, everybody, and I look forward to another decade with you nutters.
Awesome!

In a surprise to literally nobody ever, I made my 100,000th post in a Superthread, back in the March 2009 heyday: Milestone, County Tipperary Superthread

However, I did mark my 100,001st post with a thread: 100,001 Posts/Palindrome Appreciation Thread
