500th fan

    OK, who wants to be no 500?

    Not quite sure what I have done to deserve this many fans, but no 500 is available.

    I have just flagged no 499 as being a spammer, so there might be 2 chances big_smile

    You have 498 already. Alarming direction wink

  3. Lissie profile image79

    I think all the humans here already fans - just the spambots left!  And I thought getting to 300 was cool!

    I am already a fan sad

    All of us are smile
    I guess Lissie has the point.
    However, I am thinking of SunSeven's 700 plus fans wink

    Your profile says you have 502 fans.  So who was lucky number 500? smile

    I'm betting it's only a matter of, oh, maybe 15 minutes or so?  I'd take it up a notch but I'm already marching in the hit parade.

    In case I don't get back here tonight, though...congrats and well-deserved.

    Inspirepubposted 10 years ago

    Hmmm, it still says "498" under the avatar in the forum. You'd have thought that was the same number as the number of fans showing on the profile, wouldn't you? Odd ...


    P.S. Congratulations anyway!

    This is no 500:

    No prize I'm afraid. big_smile

    It would have been the person after, but no 499 got them selves deleted LOL

    Thanks all. big_smile

    Congrats!  I thought I was a fan - double-checked and was right.  You'll have to stay around the 500 mark for now.  smile
