As of me typing this, the member count at the bottom of the forum main page is 99,279. That means we're 721 away from 100,000! Which is a significant number in this base-10 system that we call life.

 

The poll above is for when we're going to reach that number. However, I'd also like to have some discussion below about how we should celebrate as a community. Any ideas?

Ha! I've thought about making a post about this for the past few days, but I thought it was still a little early, and I wasn't sure which forum would've been best for it, whether "Celebrations," "Site Comments," or "Off-A."

 

I was going to say, "So, we're going to celebrate with 100,000 cakes and cake photos, right?" :D :P

We already have, though, haven't we? Because most members who joined in 2016 or 2017 have a 6-digit member number. I'm not quite sure why the number on the front page doesn't match up with that.

Wish someone would fund all 100k of us to a convention smack dab in the middle of the country where all could attend. I'll ask Warren Buffet next time I see him Lol.

I'm not sure why the numbers are different, but I'm going by the one on the front page.

Number of current members is 99279, not total ever. Some members might have deleted their profile or got banned or lost in the wash when we had the Great Downtimes of 2015/6. That is why member numbers go over 100k.

Breaking the world record for largest cake ever baked? What's the standing record?

Of course, not all 100,000 members are asexual (some are heterosexual with asexual partners), but most are, and I still thought people would like to celebrate it, anyway. You know, any excuse to post cake photos....:D

However we decide to celebrate, I'm pretty sure it will involve cake in some way, shape or form.

Put a temporary graphic of a banner across the top of the screen that proclaims the matter with enthusiasm?

 

Maybe a cake baking contest, post pictures of our own cakes and vote on the best. I WOULD ENTER.

Also we could have our own seat in the Canadian parliament if we lived in one area.

Ooh, we could start an Arcade game of 100,000 cakes where people post pictures of cakes and we try to get to 100,000. I mean, it's entirely pointless but so is Arcade in general!

Everyone bakes themselves their favorite cake and eats it in the comfort of their own home. No one else in the world knows what is happening. But we know, we know.
