Well, it only took 10 years, but we've just hit our first 500,000 members!

Thanks to all of you for being a part of this site and making it what it is. It's really developed into a fantastic resource and all the credit for that goes to all the great people who have signed up over the years!! All your helpful advice, pertinent questions and at times tough criticism have built this thing up to what is really one of the best travel communities online.

^^ Pats everyone on the back ^^

Now, on to a million!

Haha, no, I guess we probably hit it a couple of hours ago. But Kellie put up a message, which reminded me. I'm just up late doing random internetty things

For posterity, member 500,000 is costaan. I wonder if s/he will ever know? :)

Perhaps Travellers Point should send costaan a prize... Like a new car OR, more realistically, a new Travellerspoint sticker?

Congratulations to the Overlords!!!!!!! Wow, Just WOW!!!

I remember placing bets on when the 200,000 mark was going to be met. (I think the 100,000 mark had be reach by the time I joined in 2005.) I do remember the prize was an LP Guide or a roll of duct tape. Wasn't the winner either Hien or Utrecht and they opted for duct tape?

Anyway, congratulations again for reaching such a milestone!!!! Roll on 1,000,000,000!!!

Thanks for the info, Sander! We like geeks!

I guess the contest was for reaching 100,000 members back then. I do know duck tape was involved.
