Ok, can I ask, those with lower numbers, where are you getting this from exactly ? There are 2 spots it's available - upper right, and bottom of index. I just noticed that the two are giving different results. Oh, Antony......

Doh! I've been reading the numbers at bottom. Never even noticed the ones top right. So do we know which ones are more accurate? Sounds like consensus is to use top right numbers.

Re: The 5,000,000th Post

This thread was begun three weeks ago on the 4th of October and in that time the board has added roughly 50,000 posts in all forums. That's about 50,000 in twenty-one days and we're still about 10,000 away from the milestone, so at the current rate we'll probably hit 5 million in about, oh, four days.

Why on Earth would the counts be different? Makes no sense. What have I missed?

9,872 to go. We need a big ball to drop when it happens.

Not that kind. Come on. Let's be adults here.

Now, help me get into the celebratory green bunny suit.

Re: The 5,000,000th Post

We'll be able to tell our grandchildren and great-granchildren where we were the day the Trek BBS hit the 5,000,000-post mark. And our grandchildren and great-grandchildren will then pat us on our heads, go "cool story" and distract us with something shiny while they sneak out of the room.

I'm not for spamming but I would like the 5,000,000 post in 'The 5,000,000th Post' thread.

I'm so conflicted.

Re: The 5,000,000th Post

One thing's for certain. No matter which thread or forum it will occur in it will be glorious.

Unless it's just a post about why the new Trek film is worse than Future Space Stalin, in which case screw that noise. Let's try to make sure its about Lolcats or weed.

Take the Ebay approach. Let everyone else do the work and then swoop in at the last second and make the winning post.
