    As it became apparent that the derailing of the original thread was successful, I made a simple avatar for anyone participating. This is when the goal was originally 5000 posts.

    OK. Since the thread seems to be quiet tonight, I thought that maybe it's time for a little retrospective. I've uploaded many images to this thread in the past 23,000+ posts, but they're scattered all over the place. So I thought that I'd repost some of them for easy access in case anyone is interested.
    Huum, thinkin' things are about to get interesting

    Then, someone mentioned that it might be nice for us to have tee shirts. So I obliged.

    Then we started spoofing things by making them '5000'. Thus, 5000 Shades of Grey.

    And, of course, with the influence of one who is easily influenced, 5000 Shades of Grey became 5000 Shades of Gray Goose.

    The Curiosity rover landed on Mars and we were all interested what the first pictures of Mars would reveal.

    Young Frankenstein was acknowledged as a movie favorite of most of the 5000 contributors and Windows 8 was soon to be released. It was then acknowledged that these two were separated at birth.

    Someone pulled the carpet out from under us and changed the name of the thread from "Counting down to 5000" to "the 50K CrackBerry challenge. So we needed a new avatar (even though the group still refers to itself as the 5000).

    Someone randomly posted "It's all fun and games until somebody loses a nipple." and it seemed to stick.

    The forum upgrade was supposed to be simple and only last a few hours. NOT.
