It's not every day that a forum reaches 10,000 posts! And earlier today, YWO achieved that. Which post made YWO history? Here:

The 10,000th Post

The contents of that post are life-changing, no? Shaun challenges the actions and comments of three different people in it.

In less awesome news, we also reached the 400 thread milestone in the exact same day! Yay....

So, congratulations and thank you to everyone! For making this milestone possible, and making this site possible!

That's why you always have to be careful what you say. You never know when something like this will happen.

Wow.

I think we ought to make a thread when we reach 999,950 posts so people will start monitoring what they say. And we should reward Shaun by critting something. As in me -- critting him -- now that he no longer owes me.

But he never did owe me. When I give crits, I don't really expect to receive crits in return. Now, when people crit me and I don't crit them, I start feeling really bad. Weird, huh?

Nah, it'll be at least 3 days before we get that far, so I think it's safe for now.

Well, it's 10,000 posts in three months. Assuming that membership doubles each year, I'm guessing it'll be April of 2009. Let's make it April 9, 2009. That sounds about right.

If anyone is wondering, my boyfriend's internet is the absolute worst piece of shit in existence, and it causes my computer to slow down significantly anytime I enter the Chatroom. It also causes the chatroom to freeze anyway, so it's a bit futile to attempt to log in while I'm at his place.
