I know that at 500 post I can copy and paste. I have some great discussions that I have been waiting to post till I can copy and paste. I am at 411 right now and thats very close when you think about it. Some of us can post 89 responses and discussions in one day but not me. When you are that close to obtaining your goal do you just go for it and post to every discussion or do you just post in the discussions that grab your attention? I would really like to be able to copy and paste looks like I may have to wait another day for that to happen.. So please tell me what you do to obtain your goals in my lot.

LOL There's something about 500 that it's so hard to break. For me 100 was a drag, and back then I didn't know when you post threads it doesn't add to your post count so I was confused, then 200-400 went easy as pie. 400-500 dragged on for me. I could have responded to every and any discussion, but choose not to. You see, I come on here to give my adivce and opinion and help others. I don't come on here to make endless posts no one will see or care about just to get a huge post count. It's up to you, but think about why you're here first. Good luck. 500 will come, trust me.

I agree too. Though there's a race on the number but for me, its not worth hitting the numbers if you really have gone thru the essence of the discussion.. Happy mylotting.

Ha, I'm still oh so very far away from 500. But no, I would definitely not post in every single discussion there is, even if I was desperate for something like that (although I really don't see why I would be). There's no point in posting a reply in a discussion where you have absolutely no idea what the discussion starter is talking about, so I personally think it's just better to post in ones that interest you, and ones that you can give advice in or post a decent reply without sounding too stupid. I wish you luck though, 500 will come much faster for you than it will for me!

Well I would work really hard to try and reach my goal. But also it is very difficult to respond to discussions that don't grab your attention so I would have to do both work hard to find the ones that grab my attention. Usually that isn't very hard, but it will take a few hours for me to get that many. Good Luck!!

for me, I dont wanna look at the number near my username especially when reaching a post mark.. It makes me feel that the time is so slow and seems like Im too far away from my goal.. so what I do is just try to ignore the number and enjoy my posting... Then without knowing it, I already reached the marked goal.. hehe Take care.. few more posts to go for you! Goodluck!

As of the time I am posting back to this discussion you are now 86 away from 500. So it is up to you how many you post in here each day or want to post back in here each day as to how fast you can reach 500. There are many days I post back to at least 30, so it would take me on average about 3 days, but it depends on how much time you can really spend on here. It is really up to you, but that is a Great goal to shoot for for sure, and wishing you the Best.

The climb to five hundred takes a while but just know that you have completed 100 posts 4 times, so reaching five hundred can be a breeze for you. Just try not to think about it so much and you will get there in no time! GOOD LUCK!
