Wouldn't you like to know?
I was just curious about the significance of some of the posting "milestones" for user titles.

The user titles list from our FAQ - http://www.legionworld.net/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=faq#usertitles

I get 247 and 1958, but is there any special significance to 24, 31, 58 and 199?

Hmmm... just educated guesses here, but I'd say:


24 - is the traditional Legion membership cap (if they go to 25 they get hit with high taxes. That's the story where Superboy left the team for the first time)

31 - as in "31st century"

58 - another riff on "1958," the year of the Legion's debut.

199 - I have no idea on this one. The only thing that comes to mind is the fact that the double-page spread in Legion of 3 Worlds supposedly had 200 Legionnaires depicted, so - perhaps - at the time of those titles being made there had been, to date, 199 different Legionnaires across different boots? That's just a guess.

Ex seems to have figured out the reasons. It's been so long ago that I don't recall the reasoning for 199. It must have had something Legion-related at some time. (It was way before Legion of 3 Worlds...2003 is when the board was set up and I wouldn't have counted how many Legionnaires there have been in total or anything.)

My guess may be SUPERBOY #199 was the return of the Legion to prominence? Maybe?

I think 25 was the cap, as there were 26 Legionnaires that time. But the reason probably still holds.

Thanks for the other guesses though.

Actually, 199's stumped everyone over on the other thread too (and in hindsight, I should have stuck to one thread, oops. Maybe I'll edit the purpose of the other one).
