When you hit a milestone on myLot what do you do?

I thought this would be an interesting discussion to have so we could learn more about each other. I know we are not supposed to post about milestones on myLot. So what do you normally do when you hit one, such as payout, post count, star rating etc.? Do you do a happy dance? Do you tell friends about it so they can share in your triumph? In the case of Payout do you post payout on a blog to try to get more refferals? Do you find it harder or easier to post and or respond after you have hit the milestone? If you expected to hit a milestone and didn't, does it make it harder for you to hit it or are you more inclined to try harder to hit it?

I usually make a post on mylot about it. I'm pretty new here and over the last couple days I've see a lot of the same users and similar point as me in terms of post count and registration. So I think its useful to remind the community that everything still works.. I see a lot of posts asking about other services and whether they are reliable and what not so since Mylot is, and since I enjoy it whenever I hit a meaningful milestone I try to make it known. Plus some users may not know this but i'm racing them to other milestones.. so its all a big game ya know.

I can understand that. For some reason we are not supposed to post about milestones though. I have seen a lot of people say that they have had their posts deleted for doing that. And in the rules it says we aren't supposed to. I was just curious if there was any other way that people usually celebrate certian milestones.

hmm well i think i'm going to keep doing it. i think for certain milestones its encouraging to see your friends to do well. On the other hand if you post a milestone celebration a day it would be spammy and annoying..

I don't see why we sohuldn't be able to post them, but then again I have seen some people say that it is because of peoples morale. Perfect example is say for instance someone with my post count posted a milestone that they hit payout. A lot of people wouldn't believe it becasue of their post count. Then there would be other people with over 400 posts saying they just hit theirs that they would have to have been cheating. Then there would be others that would say that they am giving people unrealistic expectations. Another example would be people who have been members for a day or two posting that they hit 100 or even 500. Other mambers would wonder how they made that many posts in shuch a short period of time, and that they also would have had to be cheating. A lot more complaints to myLot and before you know it myLot can't get to important questions etc becasue they are having to deal with all of that. Then the quality of mylot would go down. Some of those people would get down about it and would complain to myLot then they would prolly quit. After typing all that out lol i can see where myLot would want to stop having all that happen, and just say that noone can post about milestones.

What I mean by milestones is hitting post count numbers 100, 500, 1000 etc. Or hitting payout for the first time. Since you are not supposed to post these things on myLot I wondered how people here celebrate them. I thought it would be a good way to get to know more about other myLot members.
