Congratulations everyone.

If the Forum Spy was in sync, the momentous post was made by beam.

Thank you beam.

In fact it is such a outstanding milestone, I think Mobileread should buy each member an e-reader of their choice ;-)

Ok... maybe just the person who posted the 500,000 post... and maybe just a gift card to the ebookstore of their choice...

But if you do want to give us all celebratory readers, make mine a Kindle DX.

Seriously, Congratulations. This is a wonderful forum and the only one of its kind. Thanks for providing it to all of us!

I agree. Beam made the 500,000th post - his 19th!

Hey, good catch! Beam's ebookstore of choice is pretty obvious, though, as he owns one himself . German drm-free ebooks courtesy of the beam store

While we're at it, let's congratulate tin1 as our 39,000th member.

A great day for milestones.

"Software zur ePub Erstellung"

A slogan that will live in infamy for centuries! Kind of like "Remember the Maine", and "I can't believe I ate the whole thing!"

Congrats Beam, MobileRead, and of course, WDE!

Assuming that all members signed up posted, then the average member posted 12.8 times. If we eliminated all members that have yet to post from the 39,000, the average would be slightly higher.

Congratulations to all members that have joined and posted. And a special congratulations to Wetdogeared for recording and sharing this milestone in MobileRead history.

Yea, but how many of those who signed up only posted once before they were banned!
