# Congratulations to Brian M. Scott!! (200K edition) [duplicate]

It's been a little more than two weeks since our last celebration, but today another math.SE user has passed the 200K barrier!

Prof. Scott's habit of providing fantastic answers to questions of all sorts is, in my opinion, remarkable. But this is surpassed by his patience in providing further explanations as users need them. His dedication to math.SE is truly something to behold!

# A hearty and well-earned congratulations!!

(On a personal note, Brian has inspired many of my own personal answering habits on the main site, though I obviously have not caught on to his prolificity. As my mathematical interests are pretty much a proper subset of his, anytime an answer of mine is accepted over one of his I take it as a small — and exceedingly rare — badge of honour. While I don't really ask questions on the main site, I have learned a lot from Brian, mathematically and otherwise. Thanks!)

• The "I beat Brian's answer once" badge is a good idea! and congratulations professor @BrianM.Scott . – Matemáticos Chibchas Oct 28 '13 at 0:18
• Thank you all very much. @Prism: I wrote perhaps two-thirds of an undergraduate-level topology text back in the $1970$s but stopped when I realized that it was going to end up too long to be publishable. I still have the manuscript, and I’ve occasionally thought about retyping it in electronic form, perhaps with revisions, making it available on-line, and perhaps even completing it. But it would be a real chore, and I keep putting it off in favor of other things — like answering questions here or helping people with Old Norse questions. – Brian M. Scott Oct 28 '13 at 11:47
• @Brian: If you think it would help you finish your text, I could suspend you for a year or so....$\;$;-)$\;\;$(Can't do anything about the Old Norse, however.) – anon Oct 28 '13 at 15:44
• @Brian Congrats! Your answers tend to be canonical in away that transcends the usual time horizon of internet life. – Michael Greinecker Nov 4 '13 at 0:56
