I can't imagine we'll get through 171 posts in three days.
Although we might do if I mention Wikipedia often enough :wink:

Wow I’m still alive

At 99924 now, which means we’ll hit it by March surely?

Hopefully, unless tubeguru goes on another deletion spree. Unlike last time, the figure can go down as well as up!

Let's hope we get something more interesting than "cheese" this time :)

Of course, it's quite possible that the counter could reach 100,000 more than once. Let's suppose that you made the post that brought the counter up to 100,000. I could delete one of my own, bring the counter back to 99,999, and claim the 100,000th post for myself.

So I think the honour (such as it is) should go to the first person to bring the counter up to 100,000.

Is that a prediction?

Given the way he sneaked in with post number 100,000, I wouldn't be at all surprised. (Of course there were fewer than 95,000 posts on the counter at the time.)

Much to my annoyance, I missed the moment when the counter reached 100,000! I logged off last night with the total at 99,995, and when I logged in this morning it had reached 100,003. However, a bit of counting reveals the crucial post to be this one from tangy, appropriately enough announcing the official results of the 2018 Winter Olympics Full Network Challenge:

Congratulations to tangy, who is hereby crowned winner of the Official 100,000 Posts on the Forum Challenge :)

Hmm, the post counter is back at 100,003 again. Who's been deleting posts?

Just make sure it doesn't go below 100,000 again, otherwise you might have a terrible fight on your hands!
