      I didn’t see exactly when. I was noting Rukia’s report, and trying to record the #of comments/posts and thumbs-up. I’m not vain. It’s for science. πŸ˜‰

        Oh don’t worry, I actually screen shot every time I notice my level up too. You know. For science.
        (I just wondered if you caught the exact time it happened. That would be pretty cool)

          Maybe there’s a timestamp in the database somewhere, but uri resident IT Goddess has actual Real Work to do, so forget an SQL query. Hey, I’m tickled to bits that @rukia sent me a smoke signal when she noticed. It’s close enough for rock and roll.

          What I can tell you is that my comment count was about 8,200, with about 9,300 thumbs-up. No idea what the cumulative character count was, but it must have been a boatload.

          Sheesh. I sound like a number cruncher. Nothing could be further from the truth.

          I normally write in full sentences and paragraphs, and attempt to support my idiosyncratic opinions with factual evidence — and music links on the fan wall. Sometimes I get a pedantic bee in my bonnet, or get carried away with trivia. If I can sneak in bad puns, word play, and nifty antique vocabulary that deserves to be used, so much the better. I mainly seek to articulate my enjoyment of Kdrama, and admiration for spiffy performances. Along with a bit of dignified fangirling. πŸ˜‰

            You are literally preaching to the choir hahah I’m not a number cruncher either but I still notice and take note of these things (and more) all the time, and have done so from the very moment this site was launched.

            When I first got on the new site I would sit there stalking beanie walls figuring out at approximately what number of followers or upvotes made one level up. In the lower levels there WAS a pattern, for example I think becoming Watermaid from Candy was 10 followers or something like that. Then the higher up we all got the more outliers there were. And it became harder to track things.
            I no longer really remember all the observations I made, and I sometimes I consider getting my Software Engineering brother to see if he can figure out from the code what causes the levels pffffffft

            I totally get you. Don’t worry.
            I mean I once deliberately posted TLAHL to monitor the number of upvotes each post got, and noticed that the character in the post altered the numbers from 20 to 40 sometimes.
            Other random things: My upvotes and comments have consistently been at a ratio of 1:3 for… gosh a long time now, at least a year, and they maintain that ratio still, which is kind of really cool.
            There are 20 post per individual fanwall page and 50 per individual comments page. The comments page will show you how many pages you have on recaps and actual news threads, allowing you to go back the very beginning.
            You can also work out how many pages of fanwall you have meaning you can figure out how many of your comment count is on your fanwall, or on recaps, and then the difference is ofc how many comments you write on other peoples walls, and you can from all of this work out the rate at which you post, depending on when your first ever comment was and if you remember things like how many comments you had when you registered, since it saved stats from the old site…
            Look now you’ve got ME rambling about completely random DB number facts.

            comments: upvotes = 1:3 not the other way round… hahaha

            I started posting on DB in mid-February 2016, and blathered a lot on Open Thread, news items, What We’re Watching, and Beans of Wisdom, among other features.

            OH HAE-YOUNG AGAIN was my first live-watch on DB, and it snowballed from there. That’s when I got into the recaps in a big way.

            I would love to be able to add keyword tags to my fan wall, and also a way of sorting and pinning posts. I’ve gotten the impression that fan wall and Open Thread posts are not indexed. I think that’s why they don’t pop up in a native search, but I could be wrong.

            I’ve adopted the following format on my fan wall to make it easier to find OST, BGM, and other classes of info.
            —–
            TITLE OF DRAMA, OST Part x

            Artist name [Eng., Hangeul]: “Song Title” [Eng., Hangeul] (album title, year)
            URL

            @ timestamp, description of music cue. Other info.
            —–
            At first I had no idea what a fan wall was, and was too busy watching Kdramas to post anything for the first few months.
            —–

            I have consistently used the same username and email address from the start. By the time I registered after the new website went live in early April 2017, I think I had around 800 comments, but I may be wrong.

            Enough of numbers…
