Announcing the Winner Who Posted the 1,000,000th FlyerTalk Thread…
…and, as promised, The Gate is proud to announce the official winner of the 1,000,000th FlyerTalk thread, launched on May 7, 2010 at 4:46 in the afternoon Eastern Daylight Time, in the words of FlyerTalk member and founder Randy Petersen:
“Here’s the 1,000,000th thread on FlyerTalk:
It is in the Delta SkyMiles forum and titled: Fewer mileage earning opportunities this year?
The winner is member samonyc — Tom Wallace of New York City, who joined FlyerTalk in July 2009. Says Tom, ‘I discovered FlyerTalk just about a year ago when I was trying to figure out why 10,000 MQMs suddenly appeared in my SkyMiles account. I was so enthralled by all the useful information (and speculation) that I’ve been visiting several times a day ever since.’
And this week I’ll be sending Tom a new iPad (which he is very, very excited about) to thank him for his support of FlyerTalk and for being the starter of FlyerTalk’s one millionth thread.”
We at The Gate congratulate Tom as well, and we hope Tom enjoys his new Apple iPad!
