The Forum's Most Prolific Posters

As one member hits 100,000 posts, we reveal the forum's 100 busiest conversationalists


Posted: 3 November 2005


Recognise any?

Robin, our chief website developer, enjoys a logical, ordered world. But this week he was confused. "There must be an error," he said. "Our stats say that one of your forum members is about to make her 100,000th post..."

The stats didn't lie, however. What's more, Robin went on to help us celebrate the forum's all-time top-100 posters (see below). A stout effort, everyone, and every post a gem.

Our top three forum conversationalists were moved when they heard the news...

Plodding Hippo gets emotional...

I can't be

I CAN'T

I'm blocked from posting at work!!!!!!!!

Anyway...The forum quite literally saved my life. Because of the forum and the people I have met through it I am now standing up for myself and am putting the wheels in motion to start to live my life as it was intended. The love and support here is like nothing I have ever encountered before.

I make no apology for the sentimental speech because it isn't sentiment. I mean it. Every word

(ok when's the next marathon and who is bringing the gin)
Love Hippo

Don Minquez takes a bow...

I'd like to thank the following people for making me the person I am today:

The Chuckle Brothers for being such cheeky chappies
My parents for giving birth to me
My sister for hitting me relentlessly about the head and pushing me down the stairs
Barry Scott for just being himself
Richard Whitely for getting me through the years - Thanks Richard
Jason Donovan, Kylie Minogue and Angry Anderson for making the best Neighbours wedding ever
TD for being my Volvo steering chauffeur
FB for being fat but fit
Petal for keeping FB on a tight leash
Dr. Nic for her witty anecdote and scabby (at times) neck
MMmmm Universal Twinkler for being a very, very good mate over the years
Jj for being Jj... What else can one say?!
Wickett for looking like a hairy Serpie
LDB - Words cannot say!
Shambler for those lost weekends ;-D LOL!
Wolfy for being a gribbling Northerner :-D
Dodge for being a pedant
Barnsley Runner for being a socialist pikey ;-D
Duck Girl - UP THE REVOLUTION! You amuse me immensely!
Sean Fishpool, Daniel Benson, Rob Spedding for not banning me!
And... Anyone else I've missed!

Jj clears her throat...

[fiddles with li’l bow]

Erm. I don’t know what to say. No, really. That does happen sometimes. But... well... [takes deep breath] this forum changed my life and I have made lots of wonderful wonderful friends and some extra very special ones and learned lots about myself too and I hope it never ends and thank you Runner’s World and everyone here and I love you all and I’m gettin’ a bit blurry now.

And that league table...

(Though remember less-prolific folks, every one of your posts makes the forum what it is, and we're terrifically proud of that)

Are you on the newly updated all-time list above?

Happy posting!

Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:35

its wrong moomoo
its skewed by the first year
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:36

only 45 a day ... I must be slacking!
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:38

I can't believe I've only averaged 12 posts per day. I'd like to bet my personal traffic over the last 2 years is considerably greater.

Can we get how many words have been posted as some of those people above me in the list post a lot of 2 or 3 word posts (not competitive at all really):-))?
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:39

Also I appear to have registered in July 2002 but I only remember posting from January 2003.
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:39

Ta Benzy! Self-esteem restored :))

Note to Meldy: buy pair of shoes to overcome the shock :)
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:40

seriously though caz and meer havent posted for MONTHS
its skewed i tell you
yes words BR yes
you would deffo win
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:40

I only had the nerve to post a year after registration!!
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:41

<Benzy- saw Meerk. last Fri at Serpie end of month run she's fine just v. busy>
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:42

Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:44

Posts make champions;))
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:45

BR- who did you argue most against?
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:45

Well done guys.
Must say you have often had me giggling in my office and posts read outloud to collegues. Not that they get what your on about, but I do.
Not sure if it's wise to say keep it up!!
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:45

BB will be pleased when she comes back !!
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:46

LOL hippo!
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:46

we were just so impressed/gobsmacked by the all-time figures that we focussed on them this time. You're right PH (er, PH's boss), you've been down to a handful of posts a day these last few months, and all from home...

but that all-time stat is amazing, PH. Plenty of forums would give their right arms to have that many posts in total from all their members :-)
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:46

fnarrrrr
i AM good at summat you see
night
xxx
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:46

Moomoo - anyone who does not share my balanced and tolerant view of the world:-)
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:46

right going to have to get my reare into action, I'm nowhere!

Way I see it I've got 60 years left of posting, reckon in time that could get me the top spot :O).
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:48

congratulations Hippo though!
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:48

It used to be Anon a lot, and Dodge, although we share a lot of common ground. DtS and Muttley can usually be relied on to take a contrary viewpoint, and Waapster has far too many brain cells for my liking:-)

That Dustin as well is a smart capitalist cookie!
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:48

BR- isn't that a tautology? ;)
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:49

Waapster- I see him as a Bond-style evil mastermind!
Dustin?
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:51

No, we need to be vigilant. That's why my paper is the Daily Telegraph.
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:52

Not the Grauniad?
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:53

Never - too wishy washy.
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:53

starting next years competition already are we!!!
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:56

Meldy- only playing until I'm well again :))
Posted: 03/11/2005 at 23:57

Excellent

If I ran the zoo....

Also, how many of those people post on chat threads on a regular basis. I bet you can get through a good 50 or so posts per day talking about how you cooked tea?

Sean - can you break it down into sections.

Most posts on General, Training etc?
Posted: 04/11/2005 at 00:02

Bugger the highest number of posts. Look who's been here the longest!!
