Re: The 5,000,000th Post

I was considering that. Or maybe a new ensign posting a question like "Who do you think is the best captain?".

Either that or, "Can Data beat [insert name here]?"

If it were a few years ago, I'd say one of those epic The vs. Sci shred-fests in the Doctor Who forum.

In the 4.5 hours since this thread was started, there have been an additional 324 posts (according to the counter). That's 72 posts an hour. That means it will take 531.625 hours to reach 5,000,000 posts, or 22.15 days. So the special day will likely be Saturday, October 26th....
Maybe we should conduct a sweep on when it will happen. I'll bet on between 10.00-10.30pm GMT on the 26th. Winner gets a sombrero

If we opened another sombrero thread, it would likely push the fat part of the curve up a couple days.

Is that a euphemism?

Naahh, it'll be someone in TNZ being really harsh to someone else.

Whether the harshness is justified remains to be seen.
no, I'm growing peppers

Re: The 5,000,000th Post

I predict the 5 millionth post will be in one of the spam threads. Presumably the "what are you eating/drinking right now" thread.
Or in the BR...

Post 4,999,999...

....and the board crashes, resets the counter back to zero.

Or

Anthony reboots the board and we spend a year doing TrekBBS: 52, till we get to the New TrekBBS.

Or

They announce Bad Robot is taking over the board. Adding a lensflare script, and replacing all of us with younger, better looking versions, that use the same screennames.
