I am not sure if this happened in the past with other landmark events but could we have a competition to guess the time and date of the 20 millionth post?

No prize would be needed.

Also would it be possible to Identify the actuall post and shower the poster with glitter and a fanfare from a brass band?

? According to the forum index the current total was 19,984,212.

I tried this last year in connection with the one millionth thread.
One million threads
Again, the difficulty was that it might be a non-public one, which proved to be the case.
There were thoughts of celebrating a million public topics instead, but that opportunity got missed.

P.S. The difference between the forum page total and the identity numbers attached to the posts might, once more, be the difference between "public posts" and "all posts".

Nice!

I wonder how many of those posts are from the main core of ATS'ers. You know, the few people you see on almost every thread.

I think it's just, as with threads, that every "alert" post gets an identity number along with the rest, but only the public ones get counted in the forum page stats.

Aha I never noticed that before.

I imagine Disrali is correct then, I was going on the public figure.

Do double, triple and quadruple posts count? Because over the last couple of days ATS has been really 'glitchy'.

Relax OP, the Middle Ages were a hoax, we are still in the 18 th century. "Internet", "forums", and "posts" haven't been invented yet. We have plenty of "time" to plan the 20,000,000 post event.

The "grand total" on the forum page refers to publicly accessible posts. That's why the "post ID" and the "total posts" aren't the same.

So I guess you have to amend this to mean publicly accessed posts.


board stats
Total Posts: 19,984,794

Yes that was the number I was basing it on.

"118,017 new posts in the past 30 days"

that would mean that it could be in round about a months time.

Depends on whether or not there's another terrorist attack.
