    Nothing left to strive for

    With this post I hit the 2000 mark and if my reading and research is correct, I have reached the pinnacle of the (non admin/mod) totem pole. What is there left to do? I see the likes of Old Vet, CCW9MM, Glockmann and many others and with exponentially higher post counts, they are VIP members. I am now one as well according to the "rating" system and thus have nothing else to strive for. No more stars, accolades or spiffy stuff. It is a bittersweet day.

    What do I do now?!?!?!?! Is this what it is like to get old?

    The last star belongs to Mods alone, I believe.

    LOL well I guess I will take the good with the bad. I love it here. I am not going anywhere (at least thats the plan). The knowledge and enjoyment I get here will keep me here always. I just want some more spiff!

    Start working to improve your likes received-to-posts ratio. That will never get old.

    It took me 7 years to get 1000. Not sure of I will last another 7.

    Congrats. I hear it is all down hill from there.

    Just start saying hello from Montana to all the new people. You will have that post count up there in no time. Wait, there may be a forum rule against that...never mind.
