We're really happy to say that we hit our 250,000th member tonight. With this year's Giving Tree we managed to bring in over 100,000 new members in just a few short days (I'm pretty stunned by the insane growth). It'd be nice if new members said a quick hello and gave a little introduction.

I think you'll find that the community is a pretty welcoming one so don't be shy.

Oh, and don't forget to add your avatar.

So, welcome aboard, everybody. We hope you find MacHeist to be a great place to spend your time.

But you've got a lot, so we'll take 500.

Wow. MacHeist 4. I can't believe it's actually happening.
Unfortunately, it looks like I'm sitting this one out because of aggressive version requirements. It's been real.

I second the notion...but I'm new (as of about like 12/12), so maybe Phill should second it.

Then John will add 1000 posts, but take back 2000 after he hits 7000.

I have to say, ham is probably the least enticing of meats for me. Although i do remain partial to sausage.

And i'm almost 1/5th of the way

I don't know about 5,000, but I know what I'll yell if I ever reach 9,001 posts.

Hey all, just checking in and saying Hi. I'm very excited for the Heists to start. I also love how posts are treated in the forums the same way investment bankers deal with our money: completely ignoring it's actual worth. ^^

Just wanted to pop in and say hi to the newcomers...Don't worry about not exactly knowing what's going on yet...you will soon enough.  Jump in, join the conversation, grab a drink, and stay awhile.  We're a pretty cool group most of the time. 

Let us old-timers know if we can help you guys in any way.  We want it to be a nice friendly place for you to come chill out, have some fun, and pick up some cool Mac stuff along the way.

Cheers! tongue

Hi

I’m a 25 old guy from Denmark. I recently bought my very first iMac. When browsing the web I discovered macheist to get some Christmas presents under the tree tongue

And is now looking forward to see what you macheists creators have under you’re sleeves.  ☺
