    Thumbs up 10,000 Member Countdown

    Only 1,000 more members and we hit the 10,000 mark

    I'm guessing somewhere around August 15th.

    Thanks to all that post great information and give members a reason to join.

    Don't forget, sponsors keep InspectionNews FREE for everyone. Show them some love with a visit a day. If you don't, who will?

    Brian,

    If you could just get all the inspectors just here in Dallas alone to sign up, you'd top that in just a day.

    Rick,

    What??? No utilities? Where is your generator? Your portable air compressor? Your portable gas tank?

    I'm shocked?!!


    Be sure you brush up on doing EMF inspections. Clients (err ... potential clients) are now asking for those.

    The $199 specialists are offering them it appears.

    Only 6 days later and the countdown has gone from 1,000 to 900.

    It's amazing how fast new members are joining InspectionNews!

    Any bets on what date the 10,000th member will join?

    "correct"?

    "closest"?

    "closest without going over"?



    If per chance (i.e., "dumb luck") I am correct, raffle that off to the next closest.

    I just went 6 days = 100
    900 left / 6 days = 54 days, counted out 54 days on the calendar and that was what I got.

    Scott took my initial guess, being about 60 days out and a Sunday, with 'trollers' abounding the internet. So I'll go with July 20th (for those late-nighters drifting in past midnight! )

    No editing your post after you guess the date.

    Well, it took 7 days this time to have the next 100 people sign up. We are now under 800 to go before we hit 10,000.

    I will leave the guessing open for one more week so it is fair to everyone and will take Jerry's suggestion for the closest guess without going over the date.

    We actually had about 140 new members but as you know I delete the dead wood (bad e-mail addresses) as people forget to update when they change e-mail addresses or go out of business. This provides InspectionNews with an accurate number (or very close) of real and interested members, not the "One and Done" sign-ups.

    Six days later and we are now down to 700 more members before we hit 10,000.

    No more guesses after June 11th so make your prediction now.

    Looks like it will be July 24th at this point, with the benefit of time passing since the previous numbers.

    But it is slowing down, as evidenced by the first rate and the current rate, so it will likely be later than that.

    Brian, does everyone get a new chance on June 11 based on current numbers as of that date?

    Brian was the two Jerry's your first posters

    I can't remember but I think it was 02 or 04 when I joined wish you corrected the dates when you changed to the new forum. I thought you said you would along time ago.................... It kind of gives the old timers a feeling of seniority

    Brian Schmidt, you better re-register under another name
    I hope no one does that and it is an honest 10,000th member.

    You all know other inspectors who might not already be members. Send out an e-mail and see if it could be one of your friends.

    I (almost) hate to be the perennial gadfly here, but why didn't a prize of some sort go to Mr. 10,000 himself? Is this a gambling forum or what?

    If so, then I'll just bet that the Hann cannot come up with a mobile device-friendly version of his site before I actually could use it.

    Aaron,

    You really do need to learn to read posts before you post.
