If you look on the Forum page, where the Board stats are kept, you will see that well over a million topics have now been posted on this site.
What a landmark!

There's something a little ironic about this discovery.
Back in February, I was alerting members to the fact that the thread which would be numbered as "one million" was about to appear on the horizon;
ATS thread One Million
There was an aloof response from the management, to the effect that this was not a very significaant moment, because the number included all the behind-scenes threads, the staff discussions, the alerts.
They would rather wait until the millionth public topic appeared, as defined on the Board stats page, and celebrate that instead. That would be a major landmark, and big things would happen.

Well, the millionth topic has evidently been posted, at some point in the last couple of weeks.
But where was the celebration?
Where were the drums, the trumpets, the flag-waving, the fireworks, the razzamatazz?

The millionth thread, by either definition, is a major symbol of the achievement of this site, something to be proud of.
At the very least, it proclaims the fact that ATS has a substantial history with a full and active membership, who can always find new things to write about.

What do you say, folks? Shall we have a party?
Is it going to be "Knock three times on the ceiling", or "Twice on the pipes"?

Does this number include the many worthy, relevant topics that have been 404'd as well?

Probably not.
They would certainly have been included in my original count of "one million thread numbers", which may be one of the reasons why that count was thought unimportant.

Not to mention the "76 trombones" (now that really does date me).

There was a thread counting down to it a while back ...
I can't remember who had the thread about it or what the millionth thread was.
I think I remember them saying that the one millionth thread didn't exist ...
That it got skipped over or something. (But I could be wrong on that part)

I'm pretty sure there was a thread about it by the owners.....
some time ago.

Or not?

Now if we just delete all the doom porn threads that never came true we'd be at 1/2.

Yes, that was my thread.
Since I was monitoring progress, I can tell you that the actual thread numbered "one million" was one of the non-public threads, so we could not have seen it anyway.
The next thread after that was an Intro thread.

The one millionth thread going by thread title numbers was a Staff thread, so only the Mods got to see it.

I think what you're remembering is my own thread, when I was counting down to the thread with the actual number "one million".

In that case we might be in serious danger of not reaching the target at all.
