I looked it up once but can't remember. I think it was a post from John, probably testing or introductory.

That's probably pretty close. We were averaging about 100k posts per year for the first few years but now it's somewhere around 130-150k posts per year.

 

400k posts in about three years should be close, if not a bit on the conservative side.

There won't be an internet in 3 years. Hope you all know how to hunt.

 

j/k.

 

It's a great site. What was the 500,000th post?

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

No idea. Tracking which post was 500,000th would be a pain in the ass. The database tracks posts in order, giving them a numerical value from one onward.

 

But posts are deleted, particularly spam posts. According to the database, the 500,000th post would have been something like 506,382.

 

Whereas the post we see listed on the forum index removes those deleted posts and just spits out a counting number.

What happened? Frankly I'm wondering how our IT guy has a job... Spent an hour with him on the phone today and he was just as confused as me.

Oh, I know, just ribbing you.

 

Though it is funny how often project managers confuse those two things.
