Congrats, Mike! Mods like you put in a lot of work. Like you, I generally avoid social media - but the Forum is different and I never think of it as "social media".

10,000 posts? I doubt Id live long enough to make that milestone, at my average rate of progress since joining. Anyway, congratulations to you for living long enough to get there, Mike.

Your posts are almost always helpful, occasionally funny and always good-natured. Youre an inspiration to our better natures. More power to your penkeyboard.

My sentiments exactly.

Always a pleasure to read your contributions Mike. I always learn something, they are always interesting and balanced, I often find them entertaining. Voices of reason and moderation like yours are always welcome in this forum. They stand out in an increasingly shouty world. Long may it continue.

Good going - and you're welcome - and thank YOU

(incidentally, I popped up to Durham the w/e before last and I noticed your cathedral is in bandages, so I didn't stay long )

(actually, my daughter has just started at Durham Uni - nice to see the place again - must be 25 years since I was last there )

Good job, Mike and Congrats!

I appreciate your level head and positive out look. Shooting a couple of different brands gives you a very balanced look at things and an understanding that everything isn't perfect with Pentax, but it isn't perfect with Sony or the other brands either.

Hoping you make 50,000...

Congratulations on reaching that posting milestone. I've learned a lot and gained an appreciation about Russian camera equipment from you and very much appreciate this new found (for me) knowledge. .

Congrats on reaching the top of the big 10K-Mount(ain) of posts.

Thank you for all your work herding the fractious cats that prowl the forum. You help make this little corner of interwebs one of the nicer spots to visit, make friends, and converse about cameras, lens, life, and everything.

This is my 10,000th post on PentaxForums, and it feels like a small but important milestone - so, I wanted to take this opportunity to say "Thank You"
Awesome Mike, congratulations.

10,000 posts.

And this one gets 27, wait, 28 likes.

Even more awesome.


You gotta get up pretty early in the morning to be a PW like me, eh? I passed 10k a long time ago. I have no shame.
