Probably more likely you just never got the invite Steve....then again maybe it just got held up, what with all the postal strikes.......

As for ParkyWrx, what the hell took you so long....49,999 people found this place before you!!?!

Just playing around with the 50,000th member link, Admin is number 1, obviously, but the next person is 3011th, another Admin! :thumbsup: Where is the 3000 in between? Could there really be over 50,000 members? :? :thinking:

Maybe someone INCREDIBLY obese signed up as the first member & Admin had to assign him/her all the numbers from 2 to 2,999??!?!

I'd say the 1st 3000 were probably on the original site and something went wrong with the details transferring when the site was changed dramatically from it's first incarnation.

Nooooo... shtuug was the username of a web-programmer I think who helped make the HUKD we use today (once upon a time only moderators could decide what went on the front mage). He joined in May 2006... almost TWO YEARS after the site began.

No, I've been looking at it and I'd say that we're actually 3,000 members short of 50,000!!

I might explain tomorrow. You will find out why in due course. :)

13049 here, makes me pretty much the 10,000th member! I feel slightly more important now, beat 37,000 people to it, only 10,000 beat me to it. Wonder if we could rank all the members based on how long they've been on the site, rep received and number of posts? Would be interesting to see how high you are on the rankings!

Thats really way offff.. :giggle:

Well, when we changed forum software from phpBB to vBulletin it seems it deleted the 3,010 users we had back then and gave them all registration numbers afterwards. So, 3,000 to 6,000 are actually 2 to 3,000 (all of whom no longer exist).

Therefore we're 3,000 users short of it. I think.

But, what's incredible is to see the growth in users. If my theory is correct, then in May 2006, almost TWO YEARS after the site was founded, we only had 3,000 members. By Christmas 2006 we had around 15,000 and now we have 50,000.

We've seen amazing growth lately!

How short are HUKD of 50k members then?

Whatever indeed!! So instead of welcoming or starting a thread saying welcome you start a thread whingeing about how no-one started a thread to welcome? It doesn't get more ridiculous than that! Life is what you make it you know :) Some people you give lemonade and they make lemons...
[admin]#32

I think technically we would need another 3010. When we changed forum software something happened, I can't quite remember, and it started auto-incrementing from 3k instead of lower. Maybe we only had 3k members then even and it started from the last one? Something like that.
[admin]#33
I think we should celebrate now though as it gets too complicated hehe. Parkwrx isn't the 50k one though I don't think. Will check...
[admin]#34
I think this is HUKD member 50k:

CONGRATULATIONS ON 50,000 USERS!! :D

There you go again.
How am I supposed to know who the 50,000th Member is?? I wasn't even on here when it reached and passed that number. This is YOUR milestone, not mine, so don't start this carp with me.
