I originally made this thread a week ago then asked to have it deleted just because I was worried it might be misinterpreted as poking fun at the guys (which it really isn't at all). Now that a week has passed, I've decided it's too momentous an occasion to let it go unmarked (as I'm sure most of my fellow Covers brothers would agree), so let's try this again:

Who will be the first Covers member to reach the 100,000 post milestone?

THE CONTENDERS:

bevoaustintx (97,360): Has slowed down the pace over the past few months, but still the leading contender.

p_66 (91,390): The man is a warrior. And with soccer season just heating up, the record could fall in no time.

D-Town (87,776): The man, the myth, the legend.

* All statistics current as of 3:15 PM EST

* Opening lines (courtesy of kaponofor3): bevoaustintx (-130), p_66 (+115), D-Town (+140)

Good luck gentlemen. The world is watching...

I've visited forums where I have been a member for 10 years and another person has the same length as me, I have 3,500 posts, and this person has 257,000+ posts.

Imagine that.

*****BREAKING NEWS*****

p_66 has broken the 92,000 post barrier

Updated leader board

bevoaustintx (97,412)
p_66 (92,064)
D-Town (87,833)

* All statistics current as of 3:30 PM EST

FYI, I couldn't really find anything on Calvin (before my time), but I did find a thread that suggests he never made it to 100,000. Maybe one of the old-timers can verify this.

Unless I "misremember", there was a time when covers would give bonus posts to certain members for certain things. I don't recall the details, but I'm pretty sure that some guys received 10k, or even 25k bonus posts towards their totals. Anyone else recall this?

In covers' lore, I'm calling it a FIX if bevo doesn't get to it first.

Man it seemed like it wasn't that long ago when bevo was just at 20K plus. My, how the number of posts fly by.
