    Just wondering if you’re planning anything special for when you reach 50,000 members.

    Wow !! Wasn’t that long ago that I congratulated you on reaching 40,000.

    Great question! No massive celebrations planned, but we are figuring out how we can pour some extra lurve on the 50,000th person.

    We’re inviting people to join us while we’re out on the road on our Driving Business Online tour…so with luck we’ll meet Member 50,000 then.

    When we figure out who it is, we’ll surely shine the spotlight on them and keep you all posted.

    Thank you all for spreading the word as we know you do!

    Me! I’m sure I’d never spread any word, much too radical.

    If you’re sharing gifts then I’ll have a bottle of virtual champagne.

    I don’t want the migraine I’m likely to get so I’ll stick with the virtual thanks.

    I think it’s past time we started a book on which day/time Flying Solo goes over 5.0,000. Maybe the prize could be dinner with the FS team during their road show.

    Who’s game to start?

    Ooh, that sounds a bit like betting and we can’t condone that kind of behaviour!

    Once we catch the identity of member 50,000 (and assuming she/he is happy to stand under a spotlight) we’ll be sure to announce.

    I know you weren’t! I was only kidding SuzsSpace, we love that everyone is as excited as we are.

    …and most of the FS Crew don’t get my humour either!!

    Very small chocolate.

    I have great news……..

    I’m not the 50,000 new member…………..

    Actually can’t remember what number member I am, but no where near 50,000 or 50 for that matter.

    There were no emoticons and it’s hard to see this kind of humour without them. My problem is I can’t read emoticons so even if you’d used them it wouldn’t have helped me.

    BTW I make an exception for chocolate so if you were to give chocolate to everyone I’d be saying ‘thank you very much’ and enjoying it.

    Which numbers are correct the one on the top that says 49,745 members or the one on the bottom Threads: 15,062, Posts: 113,039, Members: 39,327

    I’m confused :)

    Hi Blue Jet,

    Good question. The figure at the top of the page (nearing 50k) is the correct total Flying Solo members, the figure at the bottom of the forum page (nearing 40k) is total forum members. Confusing I know!

    The reason is that we were signing up FS website members for quite a while before the forum system was introduced – the forum was added a few years later. That’s why we have more site members than forum members.

    We’ve since integrated both website and forum membership into a single sign in but the discrepancy remains from the early days.

    Hope that clarifies :)

    Cheers.
    Peter
