Print("Helo wurlod") Laughing

Its would not be exaggeration if I say, Ray has contributed a lot not only to DSXchange but to 10000 Developers of Datastage. He would be one of the reason for this tool to get extended up.
It will be always interesting to collect the statics and grapsh and interesting information about great acheivers.
Though he joined this forum on 23 Oct 2002 (one among the early bird) his acheivment and posts are still in high speed delivery.


The total post made by him so far 9591... no 9592.... no 9593... (Keep updating every now and then, so cannot get the exact figure Rolling Eyes )

(All the following figure captured by the 20-30 min before posting. Mad )

Total No of topic - 6565
Total points - 61911 Surprised

12.24% of total of total posts.
8.13 posts per day.

Under each catagory his contribution is as follows.

Code:
Data Concepts      - 197 posts under 282 topic
suggestions        - 70 Posts under 113 topic
Support            - 5 posts under 5 topic
Moderater choice   - 41 posts under 82 topic
consulting         - 41 posts under 56 topic
FAQ               - 29 posts 43 topic
Datastage          - 6182 posts under 8756 topic



In Datastage Server Editon nearly 51.70% is contibuted by Ray. Shocked
For Datastage PX it comes around 45.92% of the total posts.

He posted 50% than the top 2nd poster (the next legend Craig Wink )

Hummm..... I wish i could get my total points as is total number of posts atleast to this point of time. Smile

Hello, not only the quantity is unbeatable, what is more valuable is his quality. Ray's tipps and information are worth gold.

Congratulation, if you pass one day nearby in Europe you shall feel invited to a bottle of Champagne....

Thank you for your kind words. My posts/day rate has fallen over the last year or so, for the very good reason that more others are now able to provide sufficiently good answers to questions, so that I don't need to as often. It used to be over 10 per day. Rolling Eyes

Of course, you'll still get a "full Wurlod" now and again, when it's important to explain exactly why something behaves as it does.

But, if I may, a plea. I AM busy (self-employed), so please don't send private messages or emails asking me to solve this, or look at that, or answer this particular post. I'm sure the same applies to the other top posters also.

And, if I don't respond to some particular post, there are several possible reasons.
(1) I am asleep (Australia is NOT the same time zone as USA/Europe!).
(2) I don't know the answer (yes, it IS possible).
(3) The answer has already been posted by someone else.
Only I will know which it was! Laughing

It occurred to me to take a short vacation from posting when on about 9998 posts, just to thwart the bookmakers and gamblers. Twisted Evil

Congratulations on the countdown Ray Smile
I wonder who were the other 4 persons you convinced to object to this idea besides yourself Wink (j/k)

It's only saying : "We appreciate your contribution Ray"

By the way they can never know as long as you keep posting move requests for posts between forums and I remove such posts Wink
