Slashdot Turns 100,000

December 11th, 2009 12:03 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

This entry represents the 100,000th story posted on Slashdot. Technically this is a bit late since we’re missing the first few months of stories from the DB, but there are now 100k items in the story database and I thought that milestone was worthy of sharing with the universe.

We’ve come a long way in the last 12 years, and while the site isn’t always exactly what I want it to be, I’m very proud of the work done by our thousands of submitters and to the editors our readers have “affectionately” referred to as “The Slashdot Janitors” for so many years.

Special grats to timothy who is just short of his 17,000th story and is far and away the most prolific person here. The hall of fame has a few other bits of trivia.
