Congratulations, Frank, on an important milestone! PW has got to be one of the most successful theme-based forums of all time.

Now all I have to do is think of a way to ensure that the one millionth post gets posted in the "1" thread... \:D

Re: ONE MILLION POSTS!!!! - 06/15/08 12:16 PM

Would that stencil be the world famous Steinaha, Changgraeber, & Sohns?

My sources tell me that the sons have fled and are now producing the Bachstein, Cabelevski, Rachmanninriver, and Petrokioff.

Will they be in the new edition of the Piano Bruch Seilerment?

Re: ONE MILLION POSTS!!!! - 06/17/08 12:58 PM

Frank,

It's really getting close. I think it will happen by this evening. I hope you stay on line and are able to take the 1 million. Are you able to lock it at 999,999? Will you put it in the #1 post? We'll all be watching.

Re: ONE MILLION POSTS!!!! - 06/17/08 02:53 PM

Only 217 left.

Maybe we can beat Frank's prediction and squeeze in post 1M by midnight tonight.

Heck, that's one day earlier that PW could raise its web advertising rates.

I like your thinking.

I have a press release all set up to hit the wires ... tomorrow. Based on our daily averages, I figured we'd hit the magic number sometime in the early hours of Wednesday.

But your right, we could hit it late tonight

Posted by: Piano World

Re: ONE MILLION POSTS!!!! - 06/17/08 07:43 PM


It was supposed to happen tomorrow.

I computed it based on our average daily posts, and set up a press release and newsletter to go out Wednesday.

But now it looks like our verbose membership is going to hit the 1 MILLION POSTS[/b] mark tonight!

For some perspective, here is what 1 Million Looks Like...




Oh, wait, that's Raquel Welch in 1 million BC

Try this one...


1 Million Pennies

(I collect wheat pennies. Do you think they'd mind if I looked through these?)

Who was the 1 millionth poster? Was it in the one thread?
Posted by: Piano World

Re: ONE MILLION POSTS!!!! - 06/17/08 08:51 PM

No way to know exactly which post was # 1 million.
But that's as it should be, because everyone has contributed in a million ways.

Many thanks to all our wonderful members for helping us reach this fantastic milestone!

You should all be proud that you've contributed, and showed the world that the piano is still KING!

Anyone who doubts the piano is still popular, hasn't met our Piano Forums Members!!!

Thank you for making Piano World what it is today, and please stay with us as we continue to grow, spreading the joy of playing the piano and piano music to everyone who will listen.

Your humble host,

Frank B.

My deepest gratitudes and a big thank you to Frank and everyone for helping to make PW possible and the process of learning how to play the piano an absolute joy!

And when its 20th edition appears - this fact will still not be expunged.

Mark my words.
