Isn't it time for a new prune on Ozzu? I see ATNO/TW is now 63 posts (at the time of this post) away from reaching the amazing 20k post count! This is something i believe he wanted to achieve in time for his 5th year Anniversary on this site back in May.

One time someone told me to "get a life" when I brought to his attention that the first and last entries in the Manhattan White Pages both had the same address. I'm glad I didn't tell him that I was counting posts in Ozzu.

maybe I'm missing the obvious here but... why is it a problem if post counts get high? it's just a little number under your avatar..... :D

I was more or less jesting. It is a number, but ATNO has made it clear in the past he'd like to achieve 20k posts at some point soon. Usually when he gets this close there is often pruning in some of the forums which knocks a considerable amount off his post count.

That actually happened to me when I hit 5000. Bigweb did one of the first prunings of OZZU and it knocked about 800 posts off my count. So I'm actually the only OZZU member to hit 5000 posts twice.

The 20k mark is kind of cool and I'm looking forward to it. If I had stayed at the same posting pace I was at my first two years at OZZU I would have hit it my fourth year because I was averaging about 5000 posts per year at the time.

I guess what a lot of you may not know is that prior to finding OZZU, I actually had a board of my own called The Webmaster - The Help Desk (hence the TW in my handle), and it was nearly identical to OZZU as far as forums breakdown. However I had very few members and was struggling to grow it. When I found OZZU, it was like, this is my board the way I wanted it to be. Bigweb did the same thing, but was doing it better.

So basically, instead of competing, I scrapped my board and just joined up here. In some ways that's probably why I've always been so active here. I sort of treat this place as if it was my own. I'm very, very happy to be a part of OZZU, and equally glad I've found so many good friends here.

I'm not so sure pruning have much of an effect on ATNOs' posts anymore anyway, he seems to have learned which forums get hardest hit by the prune and stays away from them. :lol:

Not to mention, pruning is now pretty much automated and occurs regularly anyway.

Yeah it took me a minute to realize why the logs show "This member automaticly pruned forums", or something like that. That's something I don't get to see on my local test boards.

20,000 posts, that is amazing.

It would be pretty funny if someone hardcoded Ozzu to cap the display of ATNOs count at 19,999 for a day or so. :lol:

Yeah, Mr OBrien, it most likely was considered as spam and a mod deleted it ... then it disappears ...

Pruning is where there is a clean up of posts that bear no significance. There was a time a few months ago when alot of the really big posting games were removed because of the sheer size of the topics.

From the front page:

As if there was ever any doubt in anyone's mind, lol
