Congrats to Patriot45 on 1k, FlaGator who just passed 13k, Megimoo at 16k and SR at 26k.

We haven't been doing w00t threads lately. I'm going to have a poll to get your opinions. Should they be continued, or pass into oblivion. In the words of the annointed one, "change, change". :D

If there's anyone missed, please speak up. And I know that Pat45 has more than 1k. If anyone remembers their old post count before the crash, please pm SR.

Thanks.

1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

1:2 - And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

1:3 - And God said, Let there be woot: and there was woot.

1:4 - And God saw the woot, that it was good: and God divided the woot from the darkness.

Personally, I am anti-w00t, except maybe for landmark post counts like 10k.

It's the quality of posts, not the quantity of them, that should be w00ted. That's not to say that the four w00tees (?sp) are not quality posters, of course.

Just sayin'.

If you wanted to increase your post count, you could have just said Woot. No need to type alot :D

And interestingly enough, I am the only one to have spelt it correctly (apart from Bijou, who snuck in there while I was posting this).

For there are no vowels in w00t... it's w-zero-zero-t. Always.

"w00t" crowned word of year by U.S. dictionary
Tue Dec 11, 2007 7:21pm EST Email | Print | Share| Reprints | Single Page | Recommend (31) [-] Text [+] By Jason Szep

BOSTON (Reuters) - "w00t," an expression of joy coined by online gamers, was crowned word of the year on Tuesday by the publisher of a leading U.S. dictionary.

Massachusetts-based Merriam-Webster Inc. said "w00t" -- typically spelled with two zeros -- reflects a new direction in the American language led by a generation raised on video games and cell phone text-messaging.

It's like saying "yay," the dictionary said.

"It could be after a triumph or for no reason at all," Merriam-Webster said.

Visitors to Merriam-Webster's Web site were invited to vote for one of 20 words and phrases culled from the most frequently looked-up words on the site and submitted by readers.

...

Merriam-Webster President John Morse said "w00t" reflected the growing use of numeric keyboards to type words.

...link (http://www.reuters.com/article/internetNews/idUSN1155159520071212)

It doesn't really explain why, other than lazy typing.
