Richard-san said "The youkai are stealing your posts and giving them to Harisenbon and keatonatron."

I can't find " youkai " in my dictionary. By the context I think it means "Web administrator or Web master."

It this correct? If not, what does youkai mean?

Thanks,
Barbara

Yup, hungryhotei understood - it's the word translated as "demon(s)" in the English language version of Inuyasha (though that isn't a terribly accurate translation of youkai.)

Hey, Clay, are you a youkai?

Thanks Hungryhotei! I was definately off on my translations of youkai :o

The link you provided has fascinating information.

The accurate translation of " youkai" just proves the wise counsel of the experts on this forum.

As one forum admin to another, I don't think I need to remind you that you can just go into the settings and change your number of posts

Of course, that would be much sadder and more geeky than actually sitting down and pumping out 1000 posts.


Just for the record my post count is 542 (5-31-06). Should it suddenly become 542,100 then look Zengargoyle's way. It wasn't me B)

I really don't pay that much attention to my post count, but it looks like others do, so with this post (#1000) I guess I officially join the TJP Geek Hall of Fame.
