That is true, and will certainly be confirmed in the next weeks with absolute number of bottles in my collection, but as far as at least 700 wears of a single fragrance, there's only one and I'm sure you know which one that is.Yeah, but you’ve got another zero at the end.
Congratulations!THIS ... is my 10,000th post
Instead of congratulating me, not that I needed it, you chose to post this? I personally thought it was a pretty big deal. I've spent many hours on these forums giving and receiving suggestions, and having some great conversations. The enjoyment these forums have given me over the last 12 years is tremendous.No post milestones, please. Don't want to give the spam posters any additional incentive.
*Original Post*Today is my one year membership anniversary.
I have used basenotes for three years or more but didn't join until this date last year.
What milestones are you coming up on? 5 years? 10 years? 100 bottles? Etc.
I thought it would be fun to post quirky accomplishments or rare acquisitions you're proud of.
No spam posts, please.
I don't see anywhere in your original post where you ask members not to post their post/message count. I wouldn't consider that my post was a spam post. Nor would I consider congratulating other members on their milestones to be spam posts either, isn't that the whole point of this thread? Way to be a buzzkill, man.No. I wouldn't consider it a congrats. That's why I posted not to do it. The reasoning pretty much speaks for itself. I'm not saying you specifically spam these threads. But we see it happen and we all know who does it. It shouldn't be encouraged. Nothing at all against you.
No, it's not obvious to not post about a post milestone because I'm not the only one that has done it.It's pretty obvious not to do that. The site upgrade even went out of It's way to reduce spam posters. Not a buzz kill unless you count virtue and avoiding the flooding of the boards that bogs down the participation of others to be a buzz kill? But of course you wouldn't admit to that nor have I accused of that. So it's over now. Back to milestones, please. Thank you!
I think your post was fine. If I remember correctly wasn't Danny chided for too many redundant posts ("still wearing polo") back when there was a discussion about reigning in redundancy like posting across multiple variations of SOTD, maybe he took the rules a bit too much to heart after that.No, it's not obvious to not post about a post milestone because I'm not the only one that has done it.
Yes, that is correct, you did not accuse me of spamming, but you did go on to say that a post talking about a post milestone would incentivise spam posters. I'm going on to say that posting about post milestones and congratulating others for those milestones should not be considered spamming, or incentivising others to do so. Legitimate spam accounts get removed because they are just that, spam. If a member is posting in this forum they are more than likely contributing positively to a discussion. That is exactly what my post was meant to be, one and done, celebrating my 5000th post. But you couldn't leave well enough alone, so here we are, 3 additional posts and counting.
How is a milestone that is measured by time any different than a milestone measured by posts? Besides the obvious time versus posts, they both show how this community has given members a space to spend time and contribute to conversations and discussions about this great hobby.
No, not "back to milestones", it's not over. You made the choice to call me out on my post so you oght to see this through. I honestly feel like I deserve an apology for your rude reaction to my innocent post, not to mention how you've treated others within this thread. This forum is a community and you're not making it very inclusive. I've been around for nearly 12 years and feel my contributions warranted a post in this thread, but I guess not, so I'm not taking your blunt disrespect lightly. I suppose I should just make a new thread for milestones that won't be discriminatory to other members.
THIS ... is my 10,000th post
This is my 5000th post, a Basenotes milestone indeed! Cheers to the next 5k!
At this moment I've been with Basenotes for 4,127 days and have 90 bottles in my wardrobe.
