    Any predictions? I'm guessing we reach it 3/15! My birthday! :biggrin:

  3. Without knowing the rough daily increase it's purely a guess, so I'm going with 20th March 2011.

    What is the mean, median and max posts for PF over the past ten years, just this years data would be fine, but a 6 month snapshot for the entire time would be cool too, maybe we can see when PF took off, so to speak.

    Rhody... :smile:

    PS How about this, if a member (not mentor) I know I am bad guesses it or comes closest, how about a free premium membership for say 2 years ? Does that work for you ?

    2,989,400 as of now.
  10. Good luck to you (us?) Greg on getting to 3 million posts. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
  11. On the pi day.

    About 24 hours passed - 2,991,079.

    Around 1700 per day. About 5 days left.

    I was thinking of bundling my next 50 posts or so and spew them off close to the magic 3 million mark, hehe... Maybe I would get lucky and be the lucky one who posted: 3,000,000.

    Rhody... :wink:

    I predict that as we approach the 3,000,000 post mark, a lot of people are going to start having random thoughts.

    It would be great if we could make it today!

    Happy Birthday, Albert E.

    But at 1700 per day, it's another 5 days - March 19.
  16. Ideally, but there's a dip on the weekends (or am I imagining it?) so I'm keeping my money on the 20th.

    Don't you mean the 18th?
  18. 5 days of posts (1700 a day) takes us to 3 million on the 19th (a Saturday) - but it appears to me that there is a drop in the number of posts on Saturdays / Sundays that means you won't get the required 1700 on the Saturday so it would run over to the Sunday - which unless the dates are running backwards is the 20th.

    Which is the date of my original guess:

    I'm supposing the missing 200,000 posts were deleted posts, or something.
