Welcome to stampboards member 10,000!
Well at about 3pm today, we just had our member number 10,000 sign up.

"phillydan" from Philadelphia USA.

He is posting already about his inherited 32 album stamp collection, so we'll get in contact, to send them a little GOODIE PACK to mark that milestone for us. :)

In that pack, we have a bunch of "mint" USA $10,000 Bills - very convincing replicas of genuine US currency of decades back. And I scrawled on a couple in RED marker pen as you can see to mark him as 10,000 member! 8)

We also had a special coffee mug made in the USA with a different $10,000 bill on there. Most attractive - and a perfect momento for member 10,000! That was made by Zazzle and mailed to me here, and in turn I'll mail it BACK to the USA, to member 10,000. 8)

Along with chocolates and other goodies, and a range of stampboards branded merchandise shown below.

And a 100 Carat Diamond under his 10,000 member special Avatar. :mrgreen:

So welcome Member 10,000 Phillydan. 8)

We are just about the celebrate our SIXTH birthday, and all members can win an attractive £1 Kangaroo just by clicking here -->

https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=44638

We will also add in a range of the STAMPBOARDS things below made in the USA as souvenirs. Including a T Shirt, pen, calculator etc, that some members have asked if they might buy.

All are outlined on our goodies for sale thread -

We did not make many, due to the cost of small runs in full colour, so some neat souvenirs.

Welcome Phillydan!

May you have a long and pleasant membership here on Stampboards, learn many things about stamps as we all do every day, have interesting debates in the water cooler, make lots of friends who share your hobby, and deal with the occasional swipe from some of the grumpier folks here (but as long as you read and follow the rules, you will do just fine!).

Cheers,
Joel.

Wow... when I first saw that I was member number 10,000, I wasn't sure if was for real.

That may likely become the most interesting numerical events in my life... though I will continue to aspire to even greater achievements (take no offense).

Within 12 hours of my first post, I've already experience the generous support of this community (Thank you John!).

It is anyone's guess how you would know I live in the land of cheese steaks and my name is Dan... go figure. :lol:

Cheers,

Dan

If you guys are going to the Philadelphia National Stamp Exhibition, maybe start a thread, see if anyone else is up for it, and make it a "Stampboards International Meeting".

Photographs are optional, beer is compulsory at these events :wink:

More than 5 years later you revive this ancient thread to make that statement, unsupported by any evidence.

Meanwhile, the post from the Global Administrator (Glen) that kicked off this thread shows pretty clearly who the 10,000th member was.
