This is the 299,932nd post on this forum, and the 25,082nd new topic. These numbers are just past and just before a milestone (25K and 300K respectively). I haven't been a member for long, but I obviously enjoy being a member and sharing my opinions with others. Doing the math, over 14 years and 2 or 3 days (depends on if it's tomorrow or the next day), that means about 58.64 or 58.65 posts per day. Fun fact: this website is older than me! Anyways, if that rate stays the same then it will be tomorrow, and it is a large milestone nonetheless. It will be a slightly different thing seeing the first three numbers as a 300 rather than a 296-9. It's not like all of our lives are going to be different, I just wanted to mention this for those of you interested.

I'm confused by your numbers.
We seem to be well beyond 300,000 posts for a while.
E.g. my post from earlier this month was # 308,841 # viewtopic.php?f=15&t=26239&p=308841#p308841
Why do you see different figures???

When I hit the "quote" button on your post above, # 309,922

So why the discrepancy? Is it because the numbering is based on counting posts sequentially as they were created, while the total number excludes posts that were later deleted? In that case I would go with the lower total, in which case we're not quite at 300,000 yet.

As a small note to myself, I calculate that I am responsible for almost 1% of all posts. I just hope the quality justifies such a high percentage... :?

OK, then it is a question for Sandy, why we see different counts.

Let's make a guess who'll hit the 300.000 post for the counter at the right.

(I'll not...)



this is post #299.975

Wild guess.. the higher number is the one without posts removed :)

It just continues counting even though a post gets removed.

That's what I thought.

There should be a prize for the 300.000th post!

I can confirm that the number goes backwards if you delete a post. I just tested it.

Perhaps the discrepancy is due to TwistyPuzzles.com incorporating posts from Wayne Johnson's Twistymegasite forum.

Is this the TP equivalent of New Year's Eve countdown? How very sad and geeky! :lol:

I'm speculating, but there are posts that are hidden from non-moderators and maybe that's the discrepency??
Either that or PM's??
