So what does that make me?
You’re a figment of Finnish’s imagination.


...and that, ladies and gentlemen, is my 30,000th post.

It’s been a long time coming, and quite a journey to get here. Almost 5 years, in fact, but, to be fair, for most of those 5 years, posts in Fun and Games did not count toward post totals, and those never actually got added in to my count later once posts here did start counting.

Anyway, where do I go from here? Well, I’ll probably tone down the sheer amount of posting madness that I’ve been doing lately, but I’ll stick around for another 30k posts.

I also did a lot of posting to Fun and Games before those posts and likes started to count. Kinda sad, since some of my most active posting periods fell to those times. Well, at least I've still got you beat in the reaction count.

I'd be happy to have you around. You're great company.

A character in the story of RM, I suppose, if Magnificent E. is to be believed.

Well then, if I’m a figment of the imagination, I’ll become a unicorn!

Congratulations! I hope you continue to stick around.

Man. I remember that for a year or two after our switch over to Xenforo, which completely reset Likes for everyone, I was number one on the list of Most Likes. Never forget. I was the first Johto Champion!
:p

That's great! ...But can I still receive a response from Xerneas to my last question post to her, please?

And now MegaPod holds the undisputed top spot of that list, recently reaching 40000 reactions. Not even I, the current second place holder on the list, have even reached 30000 yet!

looks at the number of reactions he has

Oh. I was paying so close attention to my post count, that I didn’t even realize. I’m 9 reactions away from 16,000. Can I hit 30k posts and 16k reactions in the same day?

Man, I was just going through and looking back at some of the older F&G threads I participated in. UvD was really quite something back in the day...

BEHOLD! The Best ever hosted version of Up or Down that this section has ever seen.
A bitter rivalry, brutal tactics, many casualties.

OK, which of you was having fun?
Whatever, I don't have time to be decontaminating and cleaning this all up, I have a test to take in thermo class this morning.
ehehhee! It was me! Take me away! Take me away! Take me away to the north pole!
Did somebody say...
Gingerbread cookies!
But are there enough cookies for Munchlax?
who will know...
only munchlax will know...
Anything is possible in RM, therefore nothing is possible.
how does that even work

We're all characters in the wacky game known as RM!

counting...
can be DEADLY?!
I'll never sing the 12 Days of Christmas again if people are dying..
Why do you expect logic and reason in RM? It works because it’s RM.
woah...

I mean, I’m pretty sure nobody has died over counting in this thread for a while now...probably not since UvD 25 or so...maybe UvD 50, but I don’t actually remember what that one was...
