You know, the one with the disturbed looking cat and the pants.
I remember the cat looking totally nonchalant, as if it was a regular scene in the Antiriad household.

Actually, you might be right. There's only one way to find out......

I can't believe you've strung this out to 2 pages already. Any excuse to get your post count up ;)

It is a strange thing this thread, since I don't really pay attention to post count beyond the new posters who spam the forum.

Told Mrs Ant I'd hit 20,000 posts, she thought it was ridiculous. Its taken a long time though, I've been here since the forum relaunched and never really left. Wonder what else I could have done with the time?

Can't complain, made some good friends here, made it to a few shows and had some good nights out along with all the gaming talk.

If anyone else wants to take the lead, that's fine by me, I don't see it as any sort of status thing. Quite the opposite, it probably means I post far too much meaningless twaddle.

Does being the member with the highest post count make you a hit with the ladies?? If so, I'm in trouble lol

If amount of posts is that important to you, have you added it too your CV?

Could do wonders if you wanted a job in a game shop

Isn't this whole topic a tad......sad? No offence, just reminds me of when I used to hear bragging in school. Maybe it's just me and it's actually socially exceptable.

I don't think you're meant to take this thread seriously. Its a fairly meaningless number and certainly nothing to brag about.

LOL, it was far from bragging. More self-depricating to be honest!
