You just donated to Africa

    As promised earlier, we just made a donation to the Save The Children Foundation, particularly their current initiative in Africa, on behalf of everyone on this site, to celebrate the 2,000th member of this site :)

    As we did when we hit 1,000 members, a donation of 1 PED per member (thus a total of 200 USD) was made as can be seen in the screenshot below. We will continue doing this every time the site celebrates another 1,000 members, though we might cap the donation amount at 250 USD per time, in order to prevent us from totally going bankrupt ;)

    Thank you for your continued support of EntropiaPlanets. Tell your friends to sign up, and thus support a good cause :)

    On behalf of the entrie EntropiaPlanets crew,

    Lykke and Peter

    When exactly and who was #2000?

    Lykke TheNun Lootius bless you all!

    Good question, Tass. RAZER was on a visit when it happened, and we saw it turning into 2K one evening when we briefly checked the forum. Already the day after it was 2003 - but we didn't have time to donate etc. until a few days after.

    And now we're 2020 :)

    I did try and check, but during the import to XenForo, some of the userIDs got jumbled up, and the automatic ID-number skipped a few numbers due to that. So I can figure out who the user with id 2000 is, but that will not be the correct user that tipped us over.

    Goreon May the HOF be with you!

    Nicely done on the donation :)

    Maybe just do a SQL query to get join date and username, order by join date (sure it will be stored as a timestamp) . Either add row number or do a top 2000 on the query, as long as no user was deleted it should give the 2000th person to join.

    Well, I did write up the name on a piece of paper - the name which was number 2,000 ... but Peter says it doesn't fit with the number people have. Unfortunately (apparently ;) ) Xenforo doesn't make it possible to list all users up after joining-date... Dunno why.

    Main is we reached the number so we could donate the money to a good caurse :)

    Yes, it does. The trick is that we had some jumbled up ID-numbers, and that not every new registration will be marked as a new member (think of accounts created, but without getting their mail addresses confirmed, in which case they would not count as a full member).

    I can always shoot some queries at the database and see if that gives us some more insight, but I'm just busy with a few other projects at the moment.

    RAZER Custom title ... uh ...

    I remember you telling me the name of number 2000, I just forgot.
