Hi Ashfield - you're right about the slow rate of postings - when I raised this in April I thought it would be done and dusted by now - I don't post as often as I used to for a variety of reasons - but will continue now and again to post - be interesting to see who gets the half million marker! Now 600,000 might well be a long way away....

At first glance, I thought this was another immigration scare story!

See, we wouldn't even be thinking about it if all you ex-pats stopped thinking you had a right to post on this site huh.gif laugh.gif

To be honest Ron I haven't been there for years although I hear it's went down hill faster than a roller coaster! My older brother actually met his wife there in the early sixty's and they are still together. Don't know if they have gone back though. Maybe something they would rather forget!!

Aw' the best

It's now 2222 on Sunday night and there are some 22 posts to go before the half million is reached - wonder if GG will let us know who hit the magic figure - on another note it is really marvellous that this figure has been reached and clearly it shows the high regard this Board is held in round the world. Well done Martin for keeping it going for so long....

Hi Big Al,

Yes, I am tracking it just now. The magic half million number will be reached tomorrow and I will let everyone know who posts the 500,000th post.

Thanks for your kind words. It's been a pleasure to support the forums over the years. It certainly has been some experience since the new boards came online, after losing the first version of the boards when the server went down at our Glasgow hosting company at the time. The first poster on the new boards was thebardau, who sadly passed away in 2005. We have lost many members over the years, including some of our most prodigious posters, but it is good to see that there appears still to be a place for the boards amongst the huge variety of 'social media' sites that continue to proliferate.

All the best.

Martin.

Thank you, Ashfield.

And may I say "congratulations" on posting the half millionth post! clap.gif

Well, technically, your post is the 3,716,918th post, but when all the spam and rubbish has been removed, yours is the 500,000th 'proper' post.

Sorry, no prizes this time, but thanks to you and everyone else for contributing to the boards over the years. It has - and continues to be - an experience! ohmy.gif

GG.

Well done to Ashfield on hitting the magic number - and well done again to Martin for keeping the Board going over so many years -many people have told me that they love reading most of the entries on the various sections and have followed them for years without really contributing themselves - I have encouraged them to have a go and see how they will enjoy it - once again grateful thanks.......
