    APUG 1,000,000 Posts imminent!

    Hi All,

    We are close to hitting the 1 million post mark on APUG (judging by the total in the site header). It is hard to determine the actual number. The url of the most recent posts on APUG show 1,145,000 or so, which is likely counting spam and other posts that have been removed over the years. As far as I can tell, the number in the header is fairly accurate of actual live posts. This is a very cool milestone for any forum or forum owner to reach. I am proud to be a part of the membership amassing so much searchable data for traditional photography. There is a wealth of knowledge stored here, over 1 gigabyte of text. Congrats to all involved! 2 million here we come.

    Sean

    I'm going to be premature perhaps, but who knows, it may happen while I'm here today.

    A huge thanks Sean for all your hard work in linking this world wide extended family of photographers.

    It's such a sane and decent forum as well as being a major part of my photographic education, you got it right mate!

    Regards - Ross

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    So, if we turn this into another "deleted" thread, by itself this topic could be the one to push it over the 1,000,000 mark! Congrats Sean on running such a successful and vibrant forum. I doubt there are many which have lasted as long and have grown as successfully as APUG.

    I haven't been here from the beginning. Not even close.

    But yeah, it's cool. I've been eyeing that ticker for a couple weeks now.

    So, who will it be?
    Thank you.

    Now, if more people would just search, instead of asking the same basic questions over and over ...

    But, I suppose we would never reach 2,000,000.

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    I enjoy the give and take -- the sharing of knowledge and experience. For me that is what makes this place worthwhile.

    Thanks, Sean!

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
