A New Mariner

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Considered that,LK. Really did. Omitting the slowest day of the week,(Sunday), I'd have 252 days left in the year to get the new shiny, To do another 5,000 in the year I'd need at least 16
posts 6 days out of the week :shock: . For 2,500, at least 8 posts in 6 days out of the week. For 5,000 in 378 days,(1 1/2 yrs.), I'd need at least 14 posts 6 days out of the week This is only if my math skills are accurate and that fact I really don't trust. But don't question
me if you see a lot of denials within this coming year either.

" comes back in with calculator ......"

Hope I did this right. Even with trusty tool on desk I can get it wrong :

365 into 5,000 comes to 13.69 posts per day. .... 547.5 days, (1 1/2 yrs), into 5,000 comes to 9.13 posts per day

With the slowest day taken out for the year ... 252 into 5,000 comes to 19.84 posts per day .... 379 days,(1 1/2 yrs), into 5,000 comes to 13.19 post per day

If I add a random extra posts per day to the shortened year by at least 3 extra on the missing day : 7.84 posts per day or in the 1 1/2 yr : 4.19 posts per year

Feel free to check my work. Will not be peeved if wrong. Don't think I could do the 13/14 posts every day. Have done it just to get my wheel and can only do so if someone is here posting.

oof. I can try to help, but this is a tough haul, Ninui.

Maybe I can dig up some old threads that need new comments.

hmmmmmmmmmm.

Nope. That thread is closed. (this was a joke for those who remember ye olde 'Hmmmm' thread). ;)

13 post a day is a doable thing. Have done it many a time here. But I don't really wish to. Just want to post whenever now. If I make it, fine. If I don't that's
fine too.

There are a couple of threads I'd like to revive, but I doubt anyone else would agree with me.

That they need reviving, I mean. :D

Always room in this race, Witchwench. Glad to have you. You need 2,440 posts for the ring. In this leap year you have 352 days left to reach your goal. 2,440 into 352 comes to 6.93 posts per day
( 7 if you want to round it off). You'll make it. Your so close now

This looks like a fun year for Shirley and Serious. ;)

I would jump in but I'm not sure what my goal should be. Must research.

I'd just be happy for another pointy shield - I tend to gather my thoughts a bit more before jumping into the conversations. Tooks, wasn't Vana just saying something about waiting for another 3ringer to join her?
