10,000 Posts

Recommended Posts

There was no drum-beating as my 10,000th A&F post approached, but I've hit that mark.

 

Seems like only yesterday when Peter was about to reach this milestone. I'm not sure how many other 10,000-post-ers we have here, but I just checked Peter's post count, and he's above 27,000. 

 

I'll catch you yet, Chattaway! smile.png

Congratulations, Christian!

 

I think Overstreet is the only other member above 10,000, with SDG approaching that milestone next.

Congratulations! I certainly notice every time I pass another hundred, so I can imagine that ten thousand must feel good.

 

At the rate I'm going, averaging little more than a post per day, I'll be a good 25 years getting to 10,000. I wonder if A&F will still be around in any form then? There was a period when I was watching Evan's post count and trying to stay even with him, but he pulled ahead pretty quickly.

 

Here's the thread on Peter Chattaway passing the 20,000-post mark. I don't know of any corresponding thread for Jeffrey.

 

(By the way, does this put Christian in a higher weight class for voting on the top 25 list? Or is the cutoff for the highest level lower than that?)

Here's the thread on Peter Chattaway passing the 20,000-post mark. I don't know of any corresponding thread for Jeffrey.

It may have been that thread I was thinking of, although I thought it was for 10K posts, not 20K. Which gives the whole "seems like only yesterday" thing a bit more credence.

I remember we were about even for awhile, but I think what pushed my count up was the joke replies I started writing to all the Man of Steel-General Zod Mask spambots we had over the summer.

 

(By the way, does this put Christian in a higher weight class for voting on the top 25 list? Or is the cutoff for the highest level lower than that?)

According to last year's voting the weighting is this:

Weighting:

· 0- 500 posts will receive a weight of 1

· 500-1000 posts will receive a weight of 2

· 1000-2000 posts will receive a weight of 3

· 2000-3000 will receive a weight of 4

· 3000+ posts will receive a weight of 5

You are going to reach 500 before we vote this year, right?

FWIW, my heavier weighting in the Top 25/Top 100 voting hasn't seemed to have a huge impact on the final results.

Oh, please don't start one. As someone consciously trying to post less frequently (d'oh!), I'm hoping others will catch and pass me soon.

 

I do hope more A&Fers will sign up at Letterboxd. I love that site.

I was an early adopter of Letterboxd and now I barely use it. I still can't figure out why.

It's all about finding the folks who make the most interesting, enlightening, funny, or bizarre comments about what they're watching. I love the unpredictability of what films I'll read about, and what people will say about them. For example, the highlight of my film-coverage reading yesterday was on, of all things, The Specialist with Sharon Stone and Sylvester Stallone.

It couldn't have been just that. You didn't write dozens of such replies, did you? Anyway, the fact that we were even in the first place when you joined four months after I did shows that you're going at a significantly faster pace.

 

You are going to reach 500 before we vote this year, right?

I appreciate your concern, but actually I'm not sure I want the responsibility.

I guess not dozens, maybe 20 at most.

 

I'm not going as fast as Peter, though.  He's averaging about 2,700 per year.  I don't ever want to go that fast.

You guys have convinced me to give it a try.

Good! It's a great site.

Critics every Letterboxd user should follow: Keith Uhlich, Jake Cole, Peter Labuza, Fernando F. Croce (listed as FernandoFCroce on Letterboxd).

 

I'm sure Jeffrey has some more to add to that list.

Your list is a good place to start, Ryan. I'd add Calum Marsh. Mike D'Angelo. Angelo Muredda. Sam Van Hallgren. Glenn Heath Jr. Scott Renshaw. Josh Larsen. Scott Tobias. Glenn Kenny. Darren Hughes. Nictate. Bilge Ebiri (althogh he hasn't posted in a while). I'm also happy to see Sara Zarr there.

Oh, and Vadim Rizov!

And, of course, any A&F member (off the top of my head, Letterboxd has Darren, Ken, Jason, Nathan, Nathaniel, Jeremy, Andrew, Nick, Anders, and, obviously, Jeffrey and myself).

It's been fun so far, but I'm getting frustrated at how buggy the site is. It seems to be a toss-up whether any given click will accomplish its purpose.

That's really weird. I don't think I've ever had a problem. In fact, I've found it to be one of the easiest, most dependable social network sites I've used. Maybe it's a browser issue for you?

I've had similar trouble as well.  I wouldn't describe it as a toss-up whether any click will work or not, because most work just fine.  But I can be entering films, and then after a few minutes when I click to add another, the site seems to time out.  If I wait 30 seconds, it then functions normally.

 

EDIT: I switched browsers and the problem seems to have disappeared.

I was informed by Letterboxd on Twitter last night that one of their app servers was having problems (among other things, this was keeping me from following anyone new). It seems to be better now. That may not be typical for the site.
