The Road to You: Getting There (I Have 500,000 Points!)

Yes folks, it's that time again, the time in which I reach some sort of point milestone in the points department and decide to take the time to reflect on what I've done and look forward to where I'm going. Now this time the number is even more significant because it is the halfway point on my much talked about "Road to One Million!" I used to dream of getting 1st place for even a split second but with fesak's consistent lead on me I figured it was more plausible to get the 7th digit.
 
So I usually list my submissions that I'm most proud of but I noticed something similar in all of them, none of them do I regard as complete projects so I know I've got plenty of work to do. But here are my stats:
 
Personal Stats
 
Total Points: 500,020 (95,586 points from first place)
Total Pages on Which I Have Points: 34,296 (thousands of them were pages I added to the site)
Average Points Per Page: 14.6
Total Submissions Post-June 6, 2008: 58,501 (I think I had about 10,000 during 1.0)
Estimated Average Points Per Submission: A little less than 8.5 (yeah and the Major Fan wants me to get 1000 points in a single submission)
 
(P.S. If you've read the comic referenced in the title of this blog, you win!)

I don't know, I just don't have the patience to get points, until I get live editing which I hear makes redoing pages way more easy.
 
also I'm here all day and I should be doing it..but i'm not?

good work!

@geraldthesloth: hey, I'm not trying to make you feel guilty...I know some people shouldn't submit and others don't want to, I can accept that
 
@Theodore: thanks!

Saying 700000 was intentional, since it is quite possible for him to get 5000 points and reach the 600000 barrier in one day. :P

This reminds me of the tale of John Henry. Watch yourself. :P If fesak feels threatened he will simply create another drone.
 
Anyway, congratulations. This statement does not stop the fact that I'm coming for you and my eventual blog titled 'Jloneblackheart: Now the Apprentice Has Become the Master.'

The Road to You: Getting There (I Have 500,000 Points!)

 This actually made me think you were going to give people a good and decent guide on how to be a great contributor making an example of yourself by giving them in-detail help... instead you're praising yourself... shame on you.... 
 
Congratulations you are second to none. (Ok, only Fesak)

haha, oh wow, I got a good laugh out of this but I won't deny it's plausibility...the thing I noticed when climbing the ladder back in the day is that passing people happens when they drop into inactivity, it's why I can't get fesak...but I'm not inactive yet so I'm still in this game!
 
@Voidheart: ha! we all know nobody reads my blog/guides, that's why I decided I'd help them by putting the gist of the message in the title so they can post a congrats and not have to read :P

Congrats Aztek, makes me wonder who will reach 1000000 points first.

fesak told me some hundred thousand points ago he'd beat me to 1,000,000 but we'll see...I don't think of it as a race anymore so much as a personal achievement because I don't really believe if things go as they have for the past three years that I'll ever pass him
 
the 1,000,000 marker is more of a way of assuring myself my work here is not done...it's like a drug addict denying he has a problem, I say I just need 1000000 and then I'm done but by then I'll say 2000000

more like the fight between neutral and evil...and the thought of neutrality is so evil that it makes it even more wicked! it's a never-ending circle of evil!
 
@jloneblackheart: you know you love it, once we have 1,000,000 we shall take this world and rule it!

Congratulations Aztek!!!   I really wish that I had the patience to sit down and type some stuff up for the wiki.  My a.d.d. just won't let me do it though

Yes and no. While live edits let you almost instantaneously change a page (once you hit the refresh all your work is submitted), it is also a scary thing. If you make one mistake and then hit refresh, you have potentially just wrecked somebody's really hard work. It can also make you sloppy. As somebody who just started another account and is having to go through moderation again, I am getting all kinds of comments from xerox-kitty about how my work can be better and about how my grammar is getting lazy and sloppy, which it is, because I haven't had anybody checking my subs for about 12,000 points. 
 
Aztek: Great job! I love your writing style! Keep up the good work!

Nice work, Aztek. I've taught you well. And the only reason i'm not at 700000 yet is because i was sick the last week :p
Actually i'm going to have to spend less time submitting for a while, so the top spot should be yours in no time.

I could either
 
a) laugh at you

b) tell you that I used to say the same thing when I had a few thousand points and people told me it was impossible (that's right I'm looking at you DC/NH) and look where I am now, so I wish you luck
 
@therest: thank you everyone! your worship is appreciated

ha! I actually noticed you must have been getting an upgrade over the week because you weren't submitting but you can't just make it easy for me, I like the challenge! it'll make my victory all the sweeter... it also means I can submit for 4 hours straight, realize I need to go to bed because I have school in the morning...go to the Top Users page and see you're still beating me and then I'm inspired to spend another 6 hours submitting as my eyes begin to dry out! (us humans and our inferior need for sleep) :p

ah well I just finished reading it yesterday and looking at the editorial notes in the back I got the impression they were going to be releasing several minis after it as a way to keep it "ongoing" but I've never heard of any except House of Secrets: Facade but that came four years later and was only two issues long...I always think Seagle's title get cut off too early
