    Well, with this post I have reached the distinction on Sino Defence Forum of having made 5,000 posts.

    As such, I thought I would start a thread here in the Member's Club area of the Forum and call it the, "SD Forum 5,000 Post Member Lounge & Club." The rules for participation on this thread are simple.

    Rules of participating on the SD Forum 5,000 Post Member Lounge/Club:

    1. You must have reached 5,000 postrs on SD or more to post in this lounge.
    2. Anyone having less than 5,000 posts is not a member and therefore not allowed to post.

    Intent:

    So, you folks who have reached the 5,000 post level, this marks a lot of time and input to the forum, while abiding by and following the rules for all of that time. Congratulations! You've earned a place to come, kick your shoes off, lay back and just take it easy.

    Talk and reminisce about your experiences on SD.

    Talk about old posters/members and their fates.

    Talk about the tremendous increase in military, and particularly naval technologies since you became a memeber.

    Talk about your family, job, career, and goals.

    Or whatever your hearts desire...of course as long as it is within the rules and guidelines of the SD Forum which are plainly posted.

    I know that Tphuang and bd popeye have long since acheived this status and possibly others too.

    Congratulations and welcome!

    I know there are quite a few others in the 4,000+ range.

    Hurry up you guys...and join the club! Not by artificially inflating your post count, but by continuing to provide good and valuable input on the forum.

    Heck, bd popeye could start a 10,000 post lounge and probably a 15,000 post lounge as well...but, hehehe, he would be very lonely in there because I believe he'd be the only one there for some time to come! LOL!

    Anyhow, this is the start of The SD Forum 5,000 Post Member Lounge & Club!

    this is excellent. Good place for us to chat. If Golly and Crobato was still on this forum, they'd probably hit this total by now.

    Hi gents! I guess for now it's just us three...

    I wish crobato would return. He was such an intelligent poster. He's not been here since 06-14-2011. That's nearly two years. ..others are missing also..many. Such is life on the internet.

    remember that really prolific poster MigLeader who was leading us in posts before he got banned. That guy would probably be up to 20k by now at the pace he was going.

    Any idea whewre he went or what happened to him?

    I do not have the ability to look at total number of posts any more...wish the forum would get that back for me...but there used to be several who were in the 4,000s.

    Yep, I remember him very well. He was posting a LOT of stuff...all of the time. I did not know he had been banned.

    Well, hopefully we can have some of the other posters who are coming along, who have a lot of good things to say and very intelligent and good points to make, who will continue to post and stick with it and join us in the "lounge." Hehehe.

    I always file my taxes on line with turbo tax..It's low cost or free depending on your income level.

    we have an accountant over in Idaho Falls, ID we have used for 20 years. Gret guy and reasonable price.

    I have a format I send him stuff every year with my W-2s various 1099s, my self-owned business (through which I do some consulting , sell my books, etc.) and for out deductions.

    He always charges between 250-300, but the least I have ever gotten back was $900 and I usually get back $1500 or so. It's been well worth it over the years. Before that, after we got married, I did my own for 15 years and was always pulling my hair out, spending a lot of time and trying to figutre out the best way to do it. I don't worry about that anymore and it's a net profit for us.
