Question Who are in the British Expats Top 5??

I'm having problems wording this correctly!!

Who are the longest 'serving' posters on this forum? They must still be posting to get into the Top 5? Naturally I'm thinking along the lines of ABCDiamond, Pollyanna, etc

Anyone still on here, who was on here when it started?? Anyone who can say, "Back in the old days, I remember when........... happened on BE!"

eg. ".....when the exchange rate was 2.9!!"

I'm off to bed, but hope to have some suggestions by morning!

Scossie was here from the start, when it was still a usenet thingy. He linked to one of his posts a week or so ago.


Pollyana is one of the 'older' members. Hevs and Hup. Badge.
And many, many, many more!

ABC isn't, he came after me, I'm quite sure

I personally have been here since April 2003, which I find unbelievable and shocking at times, especially considering I'm not even British :scared:

he he. You're shorter than me though, and few less posts. So a bit more sane

When I saw you posted, I was going to name you as well, would've thought you were here longer!!

Default Re: Who are in the British Expats Top 5??

Had a dig about, but unable to list members by date.
I did find that BE was created in 2000/2001 and that Paul and Sue (the Administrators) were the first members.
You can get to the last post in the Australian forum by going here:
http://britishexpats.com/forum/forum...0&daysprune=-1
It was by a bloke called Chris, but not me! I joined Jan 03 so I've been here a while.
I don't recognize any of the names back that far at all.

Right, have discovered something. You can do an advanced search on the Member list.

I have narrowed it down to:
people that joined before 2004-04-01 (so before me), have posted after 2005-01-01 (so have posted within last 6 months) and people with more than 1500 posts.

I see:


Boomie
Ceri
cresta57
JulesandChris
Meglania
Pollyana
ptlabs (supermoderator)
renth
Sandra
Tinaj

Wow, suprised that's such a short list!!!

Right, now did the same, but joined before June 03, so around the time that I joined, I can now add:

Badge
debsy
hevs
jayr
mr mover
petey
me
tinaj
wengerboy


Remember, this is posters with more than 1500 posts, and have posted in last 6 months.

Somebody try another combo!

Just lucky, investigating.

Go to Member List.
Click on search. Advanced search comes up, click on there.
Lots of options to fill in, or not. Was really surprised!

Try it with another combination of dates and post counts!

Been here since Aug 2003 meself.

Only managed 626 posts though. The rate at which some people clock up thousands of posts still amazes me!

oh no.....:scared: Though I don't like making many 'congrats' or one worded posts, I did spend a while in the Lounge, and I can post drivel and off topic stuff along with the rest of them!!!!!!
I do try though to post at LEAST 50% 'quality', because I SOMETIMES feel guilty enough on this forum, without posting shit and arguing too!
