    3,000th Post!

    Hi everyone,

    I've reached another milestone at DC - my 3,000th post. Still waiting to get the special privileges and learn the secret handshake. I am very proud to be a member of the BEST forum on the Internet! I've learned so much from a lot of wonderful people. I feel like you are part of my family. It's great to share and read what's on y'all's minds. Reaching 3,000 posts is really meaningless in the grand scheme of things, but it does feel good.

    I joined DC in August 2005 and it took me until March 2014 to reach 2,000 posts. I guess I'm picking up speed. To quote archer51 when he reached his 18,000th post (!):

The knowledge base of the membership here is phenomenal. The most important and impressive thing though, is the willingness to share it. No one who comes to the site, with an open mind, can leave without having gained something from it. To the staff here, "Thank you for having me". To the friends I have made here, "May we spend many more years sharing our knowledge, our joys in life and even our sorrows".
    The staff and membership of DC are the best on the internet!! Here's looking forward to the next 3,000 posts!

    No handshake I hear, but you do get a secret decoder ring.

    There is no secret handshake. At least, I've not seen it.

    But prepared to get "goosed" at 10K. It's pretty much open season on "old farts" at that point.



    Nice to have you on the forum, though.

    I avoided the goose, but they did try to offer me a Starbucks coupon. As a confirmed coffeeholic, I found that insulting!

    Trust me Ben, you aren't going to appreciate the swirly at 6000.
    I hear it only goes downhill from there.
    Truth be told, I kinda limit what I post to anymore.

    Congratulations, I agree this place is kinda special.

    I've heard that the secret BRAND is a thing to be feared yet proud of. Good luck, they come for you in the middle of the night. Sleep well...
