    I know a lot was in the music and 'last post' threads but I'm still amazed that this board still continues to grow. I was thrilled when we reached 200 members and also when we reached 50,000 posts. I know it sounds corny but I feel a little bit of pride for making a success out of this hobby.

    Thanks to all of you for help making this such an awesome place!

    Thanks for creating a great place for us gather and discuss a variety of topics. I have enjoyed the USMB for well over a year and it is a wonderful messageboard.

    I normally am quite modest about my contribution to this board. It cost me money and a bit of time to get it configured and running the way I liked. There was a great deal of time where I lived here and made many thousands of posts. That stuff was easy and would have been a fruitless effort had good members not arrived here.

    The only thing I will claim to be good about that is rare among many other boards is my fairness with banned users, and my willingness to change the board at my members requests.

    If anyone has any suggestions about additions/changes to the board, please ask here and I'll see what I can do. I'm more than willing to make changes for members and the board.

    Unfortunately, only 750 of them have one post or more.
    299 with 25 or more
    171 with 100 or more
    82 with more than 500
    56 with more than 1,000
    36 with more than 2,000
    8 over 5,000

    Let's take a fake vote. Should I prune users who have never posted? I only ever left them to give the appearance of more members, but it doesn't take a genius to figure out the totals.

    I can deal with that. What about the current members though? Shall I delete those who have never posted?
