    Then they must have trimmed the fat. I remember when JP still owned AO that there was a really big deal when the user base reached 100,000. I tried to search for the actual thread where JP announced this, but was unable to find it. I have never been very good at finding old threads since JM purchased this site. Maybe they are in an archive that our standard search can't use?
    Maybe it didn't happen because AO never really hit 100k actual members? I seem to recall there being some iffiness with the validity of the stats of AO when JP was trying to sell it, as well as some kind of legal dispute between him and Jupiter Media based on said numbers. From what the posts and IRC conversations I saw said, it sounded like JP was creating fictional users to up the user count in a cash grab effort, as well as claiming traffic amounts they didn't see when they took it over. It's all old BS, and pretty much irrelevant now.

    <edit> I am also curious how Ladybug got so many APs from 40 posts. It had to be an alliance thing :P </edit>
    This is directed at everyone making similar comments: Actually, she's an old-timer, and when APs were first introduced, she was actively posting. No alliance needed. Not that any of you clueless accusors bothered to look at her registration date.

    Ladybug rocks mah socks. She has more points with less posts because she doesn't suck like you.

    And if you really want to see a difference in post vs points, check out evil_enchilada.

    Ok I knew there was some good reasons I never liked JP...

    Hmmm, did someone step on yer tail? I edited my post suggesting an alliance, I kinda figured that the little { :P } at the end of my post would be construed as a joke... So I added { j/k } to the end of that for our more sensitive members.

    Care to elaborate, mate?
    I have a question; are you the bug, or the windshield?

    If it wasn't a real issue with you, why mention it? I mean really, there's funny, and then there's stupid. You're not funny.

    Ok lets be adults here and not turn this thread into a flamewar. To you I may be un-funny, or stupid. I will remember that.

    Peace out...

    Total Users: 93597
    Staff: 10
    Regular Users: 59567
    Banned Users: 521
