Re: The 5,000,000th Post

Was it hit already? Why does it say 4,978,436 posts in the Trek BBS statistics.

I'm also seeing Jim Gamma's post as #60, not 66....something is amiss!

Yes, my eyesight and a dodgy computer screen. Sixty it is. Sorry!

As to post counts, 4,957,474 is what I see on the main page.

Re: The 5,000,000th Post

What's with the inconsistencies? It's at 4,978,901 now on my home computer (above is from my work computer), fairly close. I'm curious who the 5,000,000th post will be but one person's reading someone hit it, mine is showing it didn't, and another is showing less than me.

Re: The 5,000,000th Post

You have to remember that the count on the main page only contains posts still in the database - so whilst the post ID might show 9 million, if 4 million have been pruned, it'll only show as 5 million on the index.

Not sure why different people are getting different numbers - might be a cache problem, or maybe something to do with only counting forums you can see?

Edit: oh look, post #66 in the thread was mine after all.

Re: The 5,000,000th Post

I think they should set up a script that when we get to 4,999,999 posts it automatically deletes the oldest post on the board before posting the new one.

Just to annoy everyone.

I have recalculated the totals and it looks like the milestone will now be reached on October 31.

Maybe. I haven't opted in to TNZ, for example. Plus there's all the lounges for various ranks.

Don't opt in to TNZ.

It is a wretched hive of scum and villainy.

If you are the person to make the 5,000,000th post, Chekov comes to your house to announce that the Russians did it first.

Re: The 5,000,000th Post

Maybe instead of finding the 5,000,000th post (which apparently we can't agree on), how about seeing what the 10,000,000th numbered post will be? While a bit further off, that does seem to be a bit easier to find.
