OFFICIAL Post Count Padding Thread

Recommended Posts

patio
I've thought about what would happen when one of us approached Bruno's post count numbers. Personally, I'll probably retire my current username at 37,903 post. :yes:Admins can definitely adjust post counts. I'd rather leave Bruno's as-is and just create a new username should I ever approach that 37,904 post count.
No need to create a new Username...just have the Admin reset your count...I did this at another Forum for the very same reasons...

That's a great idea patio and one that doesn't go against any Forum Registration rules. :thumbsup:

Well, I thought about that too, but if I actually ever got 30K+ posts here, I sure wouldn't want to see them reset to zero. :lol: Ah well, it'll probably be ages before any of us have to really start worrying about this. :lol: Julia is the closest, but even she would need 13K+ post to catch up and she's been very scarce lately. Fran is next closest; and at her rate, we'll all have direct access Internet chips implanted in our brains before she gets 34K posts. HAHA! :rolleyes: I think the one we're going to have to worry about is Temmu. And he would be easy to work around. We'll just make a new forum rule that all posts require proper capitalization to be approved. :thumbsup:

I think you should watch that 'new' guy, ChipDoc. If anyone is going to get close to 34,000 posts it's him.

He has been here 4 months and already has 10% of your post count, Eric.Maybe you better quit writting that great detective novel and get to work posting here.I know my post average has gone up since I've been unemployable.

Maybe, it is just a test ID.A way for Eric to keep his lifetime post count below 34,000.Have any of you actually a shred of proof that this 'ChipDoc' is a real person and not just another of Eric's imaginary friends.

One man's imaginary friend is... well, another imaginary friend. ;)Hmm... I wonder... Why? Because I often ponder these things.Would my imaginary enemy's enemy be my imaginary friend? Or just an temporary imaginary ally? :w00t: I kill me.

The Horta was around before Star Trek. Did you ever see the last episode of Outer Limits called The Probe?http://www.hulu.com/watch/155109/the-outer...ginal-the-probeThe creatures look similar, because they were created by the same group... Project Unlimited.

The moving carpet beast in "The Probe" later was used as the 'Horta' in "The Devil in the Dark", and operated by the same actor (Janos Prohaska).
~From --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Outer_Lim...Special_effectsCool trivia, huh? :yes:

Very cool trivia! :DOf course, the Horta's name was Probe in "The Probe" ... very cool that Roddenberry made use of not only the same 'creature' but the same actor that manipulated it previously.

Actually, it didn't have a name in the The Probe. It was an alien germ that had infected the probe sent to the planet to take scientific readings and samples of plant/animal (non-intelligent) life. At the end of the episode, when the humans (who were accidentally picked up by the probe) are released, the probe self-destructs because it knows it has become infected. It was a pretty good plot. Sadly, that was the last episode of The Outer Limits. It was really a good program. It used to come on TV in Tampa back when I was a kid on Saturday afternoons at 1PM. I hardly ever missed it. I was very young and didn't understand a lot of the stories, but I sure did enjoy watching it. My two favorite episodes are Keepers of the Purple Twilight and Behold Eck!http://www.hulu.com/watch/155114/the-outer...purple-twilighthttp://www.hulu.com/watch/155123/the-outer...inal-behold-eckTOL is still broadcast locally on one of our secondary digital channels (32.2) here in Tampa. It comes on two or three times a week at about 4AM. Sometimes, I manage to catch an episode. :whistling:
