Eager to get the T-shirt, I have added 207 tags already. However, I presume 
that the number of modules I tagged is less than 50. But how do I tell?

http://www.cpanforum.com/stats/ shows the number of tags, not the number of 

http://www.cpanforum.com/tags/user/shlomif doesn't show the number of modules.

I hope it's not too late to get the T-shirt, and I'd like to be enlightened on 
this issue.

P.S: I initially thought that all I need to do was to add 200 tags, so now I'm 
a bit disappointed, because I need to tag 50 modules. And I daresay tagging 
is, while fun, kind-of time-consuming.

If it's not in my E-mail it doesn't happen. And if my E-mail is saying
one thing, and everything else says something else - E-mail will conquer.
