Joyvalley hit 90,000 points - Actually at the moment of writing this he's actually dangerously close to 100,000, so see this as a pre-party for the main event later on. Do I need to say more? Tech specs and credits are his latest fare and we are glad to have him. He meticulously checks every existing info for errors and missing data. Props!
Kabushi and Jeanne hit 70,000 points - Kabushi has been performing great behind the scenes admin work lately and also managed to rack in some additional points for reaching this milestone. Similarly for Jeanne, probably our most active approver who also managed to slip in a couple thousand points in the last few months in a large variety of different contribution fields. Congratulations both!
Patrick Bregger hit 50,000 points - Patrick actually went by so fast I think we missed his 40,000 point celebration. So double congratulations are in order! Patrick seems to have taken over fellow German Sicarius' role of adding all the latest PC release, and for that we are incredibly grateful; not to mention the insanely long credits listings that all get added thanks to Patrick!
Klaster_1, me3D31337, and piltdown man hit 20,000 points - Klaster's profile mentions him being a jobless student on the verge of expulsion and looking at his contributions we can't help but feeling slightly responsible! So many games and a gigantic database of Russian release info all thanks to Klaster! me3D31337 has been colouring up the site with almost 4,000 screenshots for a variety of different platforms in the last six months alone. Relative newcomer piltdown man raced past most of us so fast I believe we missed his first milestone already. We owe many new game entries always accompanied with cover art and splendidly researched and sourced/reasoned release info. It's a pleasure to approve your stuff. Congratulations to all three!
Riemann80 and JRK hit 10,000 points - Congratulations to Riemann80 and JRK with reaching their first milestone! Relative newcomer Riemann has done great work on adding MobyRankings and thousands of screenshots. Old-timer JRK owes finally reaching this first milestone to the contribution of a large set of new cover art, but lets not forgot all the Polish info also contributed by him.
If I missed anyone, please don't be shy and let yourself be known, it's not so easy to find out which milestones we already mentioned and which not.
Congrats to everyone! :) The two guys from the list I encountered most as an approver are Piltdown Man and Patrick Bregger. The former is one of the most serious and industrious contributors I've seen here, submitting new entries with elaborate descriptions, leaving gigantic submission comments that just show how determined he is to help us out.
As for Patrick, well, he is my "twin soul" on this database, and my companion on the Revision Crusade against evil subjective descriptions :) Great work, keep 'em coming! :)
Wow, that's a lot of milestones. Great work everyone. :D
Thanks to you all for all your hard work and making the site an invaluable resource for game fans!

Congratulations to everybody!
Congratulations to all! Speaking as approver, I really can't stress enough the praise about piltdown man. He is a role model for every contributor and even approver.
Of course I also congratulate everyone else in that list (well, except myself, I guess). Keep up the good work!
All of these contributors warrant a hats off; I especially tip the hat to piltdown man, who has picked up the essential but overlooked MS-DOS shareware beat.
