By the way, lalatan, I think you also had goals about bettering best word length & points/word for games that had been played 50+ times. How did that go? (I've managed that in the past on 5x5, but only once or twice that I can think of. Generally, by then, someone else good had gotten to the board.)
I compulsively screencap milestones, so I can actually answer your question. On the words total, I managed exactly 125 words in mid January, so that one took a month. I then somehow blew well past that with a 138 word effort just four days later (to say that I surprised myself would be an understatement). I topped 600 for the first time early this month, so that goal took four months.
By the way, here is the board that I set my current records on. It's the sort of board we all hope to see, with more good words than you can shake a metaphorical stick at.
