ticalc.org Reaches 50,000 User Accounts
Posted by Michael on 29 May 2004, 20:19 GMT

We have reached yet another site milestone: Fifty thousand user accounts. Steve Taylor is the lucky owner of account #50000. Figuring approximately 100,000 posted comments, we're averaging two comments per user.

We wish to thank you, the visitors, for our success. Hopefully we will reach 100,000 users in the future.

It's just a guess, but I think I might be the guy with the lowest numbered account who still posts, and is not a staff member.

I may be a staff member, but if I wasn't, I'd still be posting.

People just lose interest after awhile. I don't use my TI calculator for anything but a desk calculator (which is more convenient than the computer). For anything non-trivial I usually use MATLAB or Mathematica these days. Even so, I still have the lowest userid #1. Ahh the perks of designing the account system :).

Why use a computer that can calculate 299! in milliseconds when you could use a calculator that can calculate it in seconds? Besides, calculators are (almost) cheap AND portable. Also, thank you for designing the review system, and survey system!

I would guess Michael Vincent has the lowest still-posting non-staff user ID (he's 59).

Don't blame me for not being informed, but HOW do you find out somebody's user ID?

you hover your mouse over the little orange symbol by their name and look at the address at the bottom of the browser.

Um, well, then ignore my post. I forgot to verify that he's NOT staff before I posted that.

If Dan Englender still posts here, then HE has the lowest number (85), and I know he's not staff (unless he's a covert staff member :).

open someones account and change the number in the url. If it gives a page, then that is the person, if it gives an error then they dont exist.

Right. Or, there is the possibility that they're hiding their user information page. Could that be a reason for all of the users that "don't exist?"

Oh yeah... I never really thought of that. I thought the user information pages would still be shown, just not listed in the directory (user searches).

I tested this on myself, and I'm hidden. YOU CAN'T SEE ME! YOU CAN'T SEE ME!!!

Alright, I'll go change it back.

Yeah... when I first signed up, I was paranoid about security, so I hid my account. I unhid myself a few weeks ago, for my convenience.
