Congrats, PPG, for 1000 members :)
« on: January 26, 2005, 07:12:34 AM »
I'm fairly new to this board myself, so sorry if I'm being presumptuous with this, but I happened to notice that you guys just signed up your 1000th member and thought you guys deserved a thread to commemorate it.  That's a pretty big milestone :)  Congrats!  And since it probably can't get said too much, thanks again for all the great work you guys do for the rest of us that makes our game experience so much more fun   :D

May the wooting, cheering and dancing commence  8)

Indeed. Our thanks to GrimReaper84 for... passing by at just the right moment. It's an elite fraternity you've joined, to be sure.

It's also nice to see membership continuing to grow at a faster clip than the previous board. So, well done, keep telling your friends, and so forth.

* Ghreyfain would like to take the time to point out that the 100th sign-up is a Tutu bug-reporter.  Anyone who gives feedback on this mod is, in my mind, the cream of the crop.  Huzzah and etc.

To those of you who don't have Tutu, I bite my thumb at thee.  To those of you without BG1... words cannot convey the emotions I'm feeling.  But go get it.  TotSC, too.  Then install Tutu.  Then enjoy it in its virtually bug-free state.  And make sure to install Tutu mods.

I cannot help but notice that the male/female ratio dropped to 1.6:1 again. So Qwinn, go and tell your female friends! :P

Jester,

Hmph.  I'm a guy myself (in case there was any confusion).  I really do appreciate all you guys have done and all, but asking me to share my wimmen is one step too far  ;D  Not that I've got any at the moment.   :'(  In fact, after spotting all the hotties in the portraits section, I was rather planning on stealing yours   :pirate

Congratulations on the 1000th member. I think the membership growth for a purist BG board is very impressive! 8) The reason for your success is clearly from the fact that PPG rocks! And you are very generous in answering questions that, in my case, have been asked once or twice before.

 I also like the fact that PPG tolerates off topic discussions and topics rarely disappear or are locked. I have always found disappearing topics and locked discussion (or argument) to be slightly disconcerting.

Response from our 500th member to our rather generous giveaway was, shall we say, reserved enough that I'm not sure it's the best use of resources. :)

HA! I would have thrown a party for my 500th member present and treated it with love and care, but nooooooo, I wasn't the 500th member. The simulated 500th member t-shirt just isn't the same. :P

Yeah. And to add insult to injury, G3 will probably hold some sort of "Free HotDawg From CamDawg" for the 500th user and that person will just LOVE it and tell ALL their friends and the movie will end with CamDawg and Andyr being hoisted up on everybody's shoulders and then Queen will kick in with We Are the Champions and grown men will be crying and I think I need to lie down.

Maybe you could make a mint selling a "Cam is da best" t-shirt. :)

Or I could try not liking Cam and Andyr for 24 hours. ;D

Actually, I was going to fly out and give the 500th member a sensual massage (if female). If they're a male, Grim was going to do it.

I'm suprised our male:female ratio is that even.  Back when we were still with Forgotten Wars, it was so unbalanced with so many more males

As one of these 100 members I probably deserve some sort of trophy or something.

Yes, that's right, you've won.  For the next 24 hours, we've set up your account so you can download every single one of our mods FREE.  That's right, absolutely FREE.

Hey, I'd pay if the mods were cheap, if I had any money, and if the mod did not suck.

But I think that applies to just about anyone you can think of.  :pirate

Ha, yes, it's like hex and the charges in IE items.  If you pay someone 1 dollar, you get a dollar's worth of work.  If you pay them 0, it loops back and you get $65535 worth.
