As I write this we have 199,984 registered users. We are likely to reach the 200,000 user milestone at any moment.

Congratulations and thank you to Ubuntu-Geek for starting these forums and to all of you for being a part.

Now, how should we celebrate?

EDIT: you can see where we are currently in the stats list near the bottom on the forums' front page (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/).

Two hundred thousand members and counting...

Ubuntu has absolutely the best community. It's one of the most important things that makes using it a real pleasure. :D

Ahhhh, sorry, I didn't see the other thread. You can go ahead and delete this one.

Just a thought, as a kind of recognition thing maybe every 100,000 new user that comes along should get an extra coffee cup or big jumbo mug under their avatar.....;)

By the way, I posted the event on Digg (http://digg.com/linux_unix/Ubuntu_Forums_reaches_200_000_members) with a link to this thread. Everyone feel free to go digg it!

200000th member: sam1965 (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=200000)I noticed that a couple of hours ago...what happened is that there have been 600+ users request that their accounts be deleted over the past 2 1/2 years so the count and user numbers don't quite match. We don't delete user accounts any more (see the FAQ (http://ubuntuforums.org/faq.php?faq=policy#faq_uf_faq) for more) so the offset shouldn't increase, but we don't have a way to go back and correct it.

So, they are each the 200,000th user depending on how you are counting. sam1965 is the 200,000th person to register overall, smantscheff is the 200,000th person currently registered.

Yeah,
Maybe this should be the ideal chance, for an upgrade in forum software maybe vanilla (http://getvanilla.com) (http://getvanilla.com%29), very great open source app, very fast and easy to manage.Vanilla looks nice. Please don't take my response as meaning anything bad against their software or any other FOSS forum software.

Let me refer you to our Forum FAQ (http://ubuntuforums.org/faq.php?faq=policy#faq_uf_faq) for why we use vBulletin.
Why does a forum for free software use a proprietary software?
While we would love to use an open source solution, vBulletin provides all that we need right now and also much of what we want. Other software does not. Serving this community well is our main priority and so we can/will not use something that does not provide what we require. If anything else provided what we must have and what we really would like to have, we would be using it instead; at this juncture, there is no viable alternative.

how do I find out what number I am?When you click on your user name it will take you to your user profile page. Your user number is in the link. In your case your user profile page (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=89140) uses this link
