We've just recently broken the 20,000 posts mark and now have 475 members. Which will come first: 25,000 posts or 500 members?

I think we'll hit 500 members first. In checking the member list it's only taken a month for the last 19 member to join, so we should hit 500 members by the end of August. I don't think we'll have 5000 posts in the next month.

Don't say that too loudly. Deadboo.com (current ID) might take that as a challenge! :lol:

Test forum is best way to establish rank. I get PMs daily from around the globe, of people wanting to have a smidgen of my knowledge of plants. I do the best of my ability, but Jon Von Wig, if your reading this, I'm sorry I couldn't help you with your boo growing experience in Greenland.

There is a discrepancy here somewhere. One place shows we have 481 members, but when you go to he members list, then there are only 475 names. I think Bill tried to explain that one time, but I can't remember whether he did or not. :?

It could be that some of the "members" turned out to be spammers, so they were dropped from the members list, but kept in the count.

I show 482 members.
If you go to http://bambooweb.info/bb/memberlist.php ... &start=450
at the bottom of the page is aundrea.

If you click on her name you go to http://bambooweb.info/bb/profile.php?mo ... file&u=524 which shows she is user #524 so there have been 42 spammers removed.

Do this:

http://bambooweb.info/bb/memberlist.php ... &start=450

and it shows 475.

OK Roy, I now see the 475. The difference between the 475 and 482 are the spammers that kept trying to register under the same name :x so the last time they signed up they were not approved and they show up on the administrator list but not on the list most people see.

I'm not much for assumptions, so I'll directly ask: Is Hollenback considered the Clark Kent or Superman of bambooweb.info?

"Only the Shadow knows!" I think Bill is The Shadow. See how close this description of The Shadow comes to describing Bill Hollenback:

A figure never seen, only heard, the Shadow is an invincible SPAM fighter. :sign4: He possesses many gifts which enables him to overcome any spammer. Besides his tremendous intellectual strength, he can defy gravity, speak any computer language, unravel any computer code, and can become invisible with his famous ability to "cloud men's minds with his mystical posts." :wink:

Out of the current 476 members, there are 232 who have never posted. I have no problem with them signing up and not posting, but as I look over the list of 232 people, I recognize a good number of names of people who have vast knowledge and experience with bamboos and their posts would add immensely to the knowledge base of this forum.
