    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    There's always an Easter Egg somewhere with Ross-Tech. You've just got to know where to look...
    Does he count towards the 5000?

    You are indeed our 5000th member, although your member number is a bit higher than that. Every once in a while, we delete an obvious spammer who's trying to register. Early on, there were a lot of bots that got rejected as well, which pushed the "number" higher than the actual count of members.

    FWIW, it took 22 months for the first 5000, and 17 more for the second 5000.

    There are also 385 people/bots who were never allowed in to begin with (and thus are not counted).

    Other stats:

    5,688 are Verified VCDS Users
    3,779 are New Users -- users who signed up, but aren't verified.
    166 are Pirates (without any doubt)
    115 are Verified VCDS-Lite Users
    108 are Suspected Pirates (they show up as "Unverified" rather than "New User")
    106 are Distributors or Resellers (or employees of thereof)
    17 are Banned Users
    7 are Moderators or Administrators

    Only 13 months for the third 5000.

    Some days, it's starting to feel like work to administer this place.

    But except for one loose cannon, I like to run a tight ship.

    looks like you need about 27*0.8^n months to reach the step of (n-1)*5000 to n * 5000 posts
    next period would be about 11 months (20k) and the one after that 9 months (25k)
