Ok, this is weird. Where'd you two come from?

Also, way to screw up the "10,000" link, mendel.
posted by mendel at 7:50 PM on August 18, 2005


And you linked to the 9,998th thread? WTF, mendel?

On preview (yes, I still do that): yeah, like you said.

I think I know th' trick, but you'll have to wait for it to become stale before Penn & Teller expose it to the public.

It would actually be pretty zen to have the 10,000th MetaTalk thread deleted as a nullity.

"Nothing to see here, move on ..."

mu.

Is it really the 10,000th thread if it's only about itself being the 10,000th thread?

If this was any more meta, I'd be watching this reply on a live preview or something.

Zoinks!

Hi there. I'm naked.

We'll never make it to 10,000.

Somehow, that seems appropriate.

Someone should make a post about time travel with 'some comments in tow'.

I'm cuttin' off my right hand in honor of this momentous occasion. Who's with me?

This is meaningless for those of us who think in base-17.

God damn that anusless bastard.

As opposed to you, kenko, you fully-anally-equipped bastard?
posted by wendell at 9:16 PM on August 18, 2005


Isn't this supposed to be an informative discussion of the achievement of 10,000 posts on this fine chat-blog-thingie?

Shame on you all for making fun of this!
posted by Balisong at 10:02 PM on August 18, 2005


Yes, as opposed to me. I'm a bastard and I've got an anus. It even says so on my business cards.

I'm a bastard and I've got an anus.

10,000 posts! Yay! Do a little dance!


posted by Civil_Disobedient at 10:21 PM on August 18, 2005


At first I figured you linked to the 9998th thread because the 9999th got deleted. But no, it's still there. And it's a good one.

So now I have no idea why you did that.

Heh. You guys are funnyhaha. Nice hgwellsfilter.

So now I have no idea why you did that.

Because I was in a hurry! I cut-and-pasted the URL from the latest post when 9998 was the latest, and then waited for the 9999th to hit "Post", but in that interval forgot to update it to point to the 10,000th.

Where are the mysterious post-editing gnomes now, eh?

Shouldn't this be a fire and stake orgy? Bring on victim.

Screw this. I am going to bed.

I'm actually really sad that you all fuck shit up so much that we even need 10,000 posts in MeTa. A sad, sad day.
posted by OmieWise at 5:51 AM on August 19, 2005


Recall that AskMe shared numbers with MeTa for quite a while.

You know, if it costed $1 to post a thread/comment to metatalk either (1) all the site's money problems would be solved or (2) there wouldn't be so much crap in the gray. It's a win-win, really.

Nixerman - you can paypal your $114 to Matt anytime.

*grabs at chest, struggling to breath, eyes bugging out*

I owe how much!? $589!? Wait. $590!?

*collapses to the floor twitching and turning blue*

Hey, if we have to pay for MetaTalk posts and/or comments, can we get paid for Ask.Metafilter answers?
posted by loquacious at 8:37 AM on August 19, 2005


I think we need a whole wikipedia page just to explain this post.
posted by Secret Life of Gravy at 9:10 AM on August 19, 2005


I had been training for this moment for months, and now it has been taken from me. 20,000 shall be mine.

Oh, and I claim this thread and all its riches.

*plants flag, strikes a pose*
posted by drezdn at 9:22 AM on August 19, 2005


Actually, 20,000 is mine.
posted by kenko at 9:25 AM on August 19, 2005


So we're running at about one MeTa post for every hundred MeFi comments?
posted by cortex at 10:18 AM on August 19, 2005


meh.

This is no 9622V2...

That was a thread to remember...it had longboats and everything...

but happy 10000!
posted by schyler523 at 12:32 PM on August 19, 2005


Um...

*taps schyler523 on shoulder, points at link*

That was a thread to remember, but it didn't have longboats.
Or evil persons who screwed up a perfect ending.
posted by languagehat at 12:50 PM on August 19, 2005


I have been way off on links today...clearly my posting brain is broken...

I think i meant 9622v2.
posted by schyler523 at 1:01 PM on August 19, 2005


It seems the celebration of 10,000 signals the end of miracle of phantom minutes. The magick as been snuffed. Or has it?

It was worth it. Heh, to me at least, suckers.
