Actually, my last post has brought J.G.Harston out of the woodwork! So now it's on 6999...

'I'm afraid' (not that it's something to be afraid of :) ) that message No. 6999 has already been posted over there. So unless Andrew acts soon, he may be robbed of the honour :o  .

EDIT: I've posted without seeing your latest comment, Ian.

So yes, it's just one to go now. Let's see who makes the move. Mine will be the announcement of the Quiz, but that will not come before Friday. ..

I have just posted Message 7000 to the Manic Miner & Jet Set Willy Yahoo! Group.

 

Thanks for leaving the honour to me. :)

No problem!

Incidentally, I ended up deleting the odd few messages in the run-up, on occasions where I'd posted in haste and made an error, then gone back and corrected it (since there's no 'Edit' function).

That wasn't a deliberate tactic to reach the milestone, but it might have helped us get there a bit quicker. Then again, I dare say it would have happened a fair few times over the years, before I bust onto the scene!

I hope to add one post there before the New Year, the announcement of the release of "Willy Games: The First 30 Years Quiz".
 
It could actually be nice if message #7000 was posted on 1 January 2017 - with the digit 7 playing a magic role  :blink: .


Your announcement of the 30 Year Quiz on Yahoo is message number 7007 - the digit '7' thus playing a double role, on the day before 2017 commences!

Yes, it's a nice number, although it would be more fitting for Andrew announcing a new version of his "JSW64 Manic Miner: James Bond" - which, unfortunately, won't be happening any time soon, as I understand...  :huh:

We have just gone over 6000 posts on this forum  :D . This fact bears testimony to the healthy and active condition of JetSet Willy & Manic Miner Community  :) .

 

AFAICT, post # 6000 was Ian's post #56 in a thread in the Contributor Lounge concerning a certain new project. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

 

In any case, this 4th April 2017 is the day when the milestone was reached. Well done, guys!  :)

I believe - based on information by Ian in a PM - that Andy published post #7000 on 15th September 2017. Please correct me if I'm wrong  :) . If I'm right, congratulations on passing another milestone, Andy!  :D

The number of posts on this forum overtook those on the Yahoo group yesterday, I believe. Let's hope that a bit of healthy competition sparks a revival in the latter...
