You know...the thing that sucks is that with each post you only go up .003 on your average.  That stinks!

Well, the average would go up if you had fewer posts!

SO...if I post less then my average will be higher? 

How does that work?  Should I have just limited myself to 2 more posts a day as Asterikos suggested?

And I have other hobbies too. Plus it's taken me a long time to make "archon" after all.

Um, no.... I'm saying that each post would contribute more to your average if you had less to begin with - i.e. if you have 10 posts, then the next post would add 10% to your average (for one day).  If you have 3700 posts (ahem... yours truly) then each post does little to affect the posting average.

This isn't a good joke, but was an inside joke of sorts. My friend's mom (Marge) was by no means an old woman, but she was in her 50's when we were in high school, and we used to joke around with her about age. Most of the jokes were biblically based (she was an exceedingly pious Christian), and she had a good sense of humor and knew that we were only joking. At first we joked about her being older than dirt. Then we moved on to a more sophisticated lame joke. We would say, in a God-like voice "And the Lord said: let there be Light!" followed by "Yeah, then Marge said, 'hey, who turned on that light?'" Hey, I didn't say it was funny. :)

Mine have only said that once or twice.  But I remember saying something similar to *my* parents who are now in their 80's.

While I was a church camp counselor a few years back, we had one guy who was way older than the rest of us (even older than the camp director) at 28.  We told the kids that he was so old he'd been Jesus' first camp counselor...

Ebor,

I'll give titles who whomever I want!  Usually there is suppost to be a council in these things in the thread, but since none of the other "watchers of overstepping" have posted recently, I thought i'd take this opportunity to make a jump!!!!!!!! 

I think the exclemation points might get annoying after a while huh...?  Let me know!!!!!!!!!!   ;)

I'd be more concerned about you getting damage to your fingers from holding down the !!! key too much.  :D

Thank you for the title then. I will bow to your granditude. (if I make it to 3000 posts might I become an "uber-archon"? As a gamer, 'uber' is a significant word.  :) )

As I was re-reading some of these posts i'm really amazed at how wonderfully random this thread is.  This was and is a real work of genious!   ;D ;D ;D

Your bestowing of titles, regardless of how appropriate they are, troubles me young Paduan.  You seek and desire greatness, but have not yet put in the work to facilitate it.

Otherwise, your characterization of Ebor as "Super" or "Uber" Archon is appropriate, not based on volume but on quality... And starting this wonderful thread :)

I remembered that you live near the 'Burgh right after I wrote it (which is why I deleted the question from my post).  And, yes, I suppose it is - especially 4 hours after everyone else went to bed!!!

It is also a learning experience.  Typically my past experience with forums I usually follow starting with the day I begin my visits, with no thought for the previous threads before I began to amaze everyone with my brilliance. ;)

I also have been asking more questions then I previously did with exploring faiths (besides the one I am converting from).

I really enjoy doing that. I love going back and seeing what people were saying two or three years ago.

I do that sometimes myself.  IT can be quite interesting (and sometimes entertaining) to compare then and now.

It is interesting how opinions evolve over time...I'm glad I wasn't posting here three or four years ago when I had some really kooky views...it's bad enough that anyone who's been here for any length of time knows that there was a time when I wasn't a universalist and I didn't support the ordination of women. ;)

Oh no!  What a horrible day it was, too, when you weren't willing to allow your inner flower of Universalism to blossom forth and bring out the sweet nectar that would lead to the sweet-tasting honey of true worship!
What a terrible circumstance, when you would not post in favor of the dashing down of entrenched chauvanist anti-womynism in favor of feminism masquerading as orthodoxy!

Oh yes, it was a most terrible of times, but by the grace of God those reservations have been overcome. ;)

Hmmm....we need a group pic for the forum's Facebook group.

It would be cool if people would post pictures to the facebook group of the churches they attend.  I say this because I have already done so, and by default that makes me the übercoolest person here. And I am just a catechumen. :P
