    He should share some with a few bounties.

    Congratulations! Can we start making Jon-Skeet-esque jokes now? "You'll never believe who just reached 100k!...And Oddthinking won't believe it either, without evidence".

    Uh, thank you. That is very nice of you. I don't have a speech prepared, because I am too acutely aware it is only magic Internet points, and doesn't mean much after about 3,000 points gets you all the important privileges.

    @fredsbend: I have considered throwing bounty points at Glorfindel, who has been tirelessly working on a long campaign to fix old broken links. At only 2 rep points an edit, he has a long way to go to get to the point where his edits don't need to be pre-approved. I am just worried it will look untoward for a mod to shower points on an individual as a workaround for the privilege system.

  • @RToyo: Oh, please no. No-one wants the deification of mods here. We are humans, we make mistakes, we should be (politely?) challenged when we do.

    @Oddthinking you still don't know about the Skeptics rep store? Why do you think I have so little? ;) Anyway, congrats!

    I would like to add that @Oddthinking has probably one of the best avatars possible for a moderator for Skeptics.SE. Congrats on the 100k!

    @RToyo Oddthinking wrote and posted a lengthy acceptance speech, describing first-hand his journey to 100k and how the responsibility of being a moderator has changed his life. Then he deleted it because it was based on original research. Commented Jan 18, 2019 at 14:31

    @RToyo Legend has it that Oddthinking can [non-notable claim removed] Commented Jan 18, 2019 at 14:33

  • @Oddthinking But @replies doesn't work unless the person has previously commented or is the post owner, so Glorfindel hasn't actually been notified. Or am I missing something?

  • @Graham: What you're missing is that I may have 100K rep but I still haven't worked out the corner cases of this software :-(
