Hell, if someone said parts of Oklahoma were Midwestern, I'd at least hear their argument for it. Kay County doesn't look too different from Illinois.

In other words, Kay County is flat.

I’m noticing this thread is now the focus from MMM in one thread.  Same argument but different thread.

Don't worry, when I get to 1000, you know with my numbering OCD I'll make sure it will stay exactly at 1000. Maybe I-ll go back and delete some low level "I agree" or "fair enough" replies to cancel out my new posts. Or I could delete a post and copy and paste the content back into one of my previous posts near it..etc. Or is any of that against the forum rules?

You know I can change that number to whatever I want, right?

So every now and then after 1000, would you agree to revert it back to 1000? That would also help stop certain users from constantly bringing up my post count.

I feel like I'm seriously at risk of being banned. Overall, of my top 10 boards (can't see the entire list), 48% are General Highway Talk, Traffic Control, or Northeast, while the other seven take up 52%. Of my last 100 posts, only eleven (twelve before this post as one drops off) are on topic to roads and not in fictional, and that's including Photos, Videos, and More as on topic. In addition, as I said before, my posting rate has approximately doubled from 3.7 to 7 recently.
Yeah but you’re cool, so…

I speak from having some experience of being a "problem user" in my early days here and I don't think anyone would be banned here unless they were repeatedly and deliberately antagonistic. That's rarely the case with giving genuine suggestions to the moderators/admin team, especially here on the S&Q board.

1 came up with the idea of the "Lowest-numbered route you haven't been on" thread, which has inspired a lot of people to take actual roadtrips they wouldn't have thought to do otherwise, and caused Jim to write a whole-ass TravelMapping feature to support it. I think that's probably one of the most consequential things anyone has done for the hobby in recent years.

People actually took road trips just because they realized they hadn't been on a route from a thread LOL

How do you think we get those mob-rule and TravelMapping maps filled in, by sitting at the computer and staring at them?

I thought that was just people recounting where they already had been, not that they actually drove somewhere they normally wouldn't just to add the county.

I mean I can't blame them I want to drive the entire length of every x0 and x5 in both directions.

Amusing that someone with ambitions to drive 2,000,000 miles would critique how people who actually travel by road spend their time.  Considering that 48,756 miles of road comprises the Interstate system you might find reaching your target number quite unobtainable.  But then again you’re the guy who rather take a plane to see rollercoasters over driving.

Now that's just silly. You can do what you want, but why would you want to drive every x0 and x5 route in both directions when you could clinch them once each and spend the rest of that time exploring different roads, many of which might actually be more interesting and unique?

How do you think we get those mob-rule and TravelMapping maps filled in, by sitting at the computer and staring at them?

Speak for yourself...  :-D
