How the hell can you give thanks over 4 million times?
That's over 4 billion, not 4 million...
I guess he's just really thankful.
If you get that many thanks, then no fun in continuing the account. Just close it . BTW, that was a system bug...
I had over four billion, and when it went so far, it just started again. So like what you see now has a few billion on it.
Good catch, I guess when numbers start getting that big you can't even count.
One explanation from the one who actually got 4+ billion thanks:
And nicely explained by HoNeYBiRD thru a link here:
Quoting that link:
The above explanation is for the 4+ billion posts-count, but the principle would be similar for the 4+ billion thanks-count imo.
BHW member TheMasterOfMoney explains it better here:
lol... he is the most thankful guy under the Sun. He just clicks --- the thanks button and the button goes wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiild in excitement like a b!tch in heat... lol
It's happened more often than you'd think, actually, though it hasn't happened in quite a while. It's an issue where the user has a post in the mod queue (which doesn't add to their postcount) in a forum that does add towards postcount. When a mod deletes the post, it subtracts 1 from the postcount, which would take it from 0 to -1...but postcount doesn't accept negative numbers, so it wraps around to 232 - 1 (4,294,967,295).
