Our first 100k+ user

We have another great milestone in our beloved TeX community: our very first user to break the 100k barrier! Who? I’ll give you a hint:

That was easy, wasn’t it?


egreg is the first TeX.sx user to reach 100k!

Since egreg’s reputation grows on a geometric progression, I took an screenshot of the epic moment before it was too late:

And look, it’s a palindromic reputation, what a great number! We chatroom residents are fond of palindromes.



As part of the celebrations – including a cake in the chatroom – we also made a video about egreg’s 100k. You might say, “the video is from 3 weeks ago!” We are planning this celebration for a long time, believe me! There was also a countdown in the chatroom.


Congrats, egreg! The first user to get 5 credit cards of mine.

  1. Wow!!! Congratulations. I am sure everyone here would agree that we really appreciate your willingness to help everyone soooo much… I know I would be sooo much further behind in my work if it were not for you. Thanks again…

  2. Congrats! I knew this was bound to happen, but not this soon… 🙂 In a couple of weeks we celebrate breaking the 200k limit? 😉

  3. Congratulations egreg; your knowledge of TeX and willingness to share it inspires me; thanks for all that you do on the site.
