    I would just like to enquire about the various privileges that come with being part of the prestigious 1000 Post Club?

    I await your responses with great anticipation.

    Number one, HJ, is the thought that some of your posts may be placed where they no longer count, which happened to me. (And I thought I was safe, with over 1200 posts, but about 350+ were moved from Aspiring Writers - Workshop to the Lounge.)

    So happy nail-biting, HJ.

    Now, in the old Ascifi site (which merged with this one two or three years ago) apparently they got little aliens for high-level posting, although how many posts per alien (and if you could trade in fifty of them for a UFO, was not clear.

    And then all you get is a headache from staring at the computer screen so much. (Although the complimentary bottle of aspirin to go with it is nice.)

    Word on the street is that when you get to 5000, Brian actually comes to your house and a party ensues.

    That may well have happened once, HJ: to the person who is currently number 7 on the all-time poster's list.

    Well if this is going to be a proper club, I suggest secret handshakes, passwords and lemonade.

    I think Dave is the one we should be asking if anything happens when we get 10,000 posts. He's a bit lonely up there at the moment...
