If everyone would just spend the rest of the evening joining up under assumed names, we could do it by midnight.

Too bad, I as going to offer a $1000 cash prize, but why bother now? [oh yes, I forgot this, :rolleyes:]

I figured that just by bringing attention to it you had created the temptation for people to play with the rate of increase.

Little did I know the power existed to make it go backwards.

Greg is all powerful. :approve:

He also periodically deletes inactive accounts so that the membership number reflects actual active members, not every person that registered since the beginning of time. Some forums claim huge membership, but only have three members at a time online. :rolleyes:

27,158, Hmmm, so we need another 158-1000 = well its 158+2 = 160
160 +40 =200 no its 2 +40 = 42 + 800 = 842

So i change my guess to 2200 Wednesday Bishops itchington time.

So true. I used to frequent another physics forum that claimed 50,000, but the threads only proceeded at a rate of a few posts a day; that is to say, the sum of all posts to all threads! 50,000... :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: At the time, PF had ten times the level of activity with 3000 members.

Yeah, I agree. The amount of members never seem to reflect the activity.

This is by far the best forum I've been on. Not the most active, but certainly the best.

If the data was at hand (PF members over time) it would be possible to roughly extrapolate a date and time of when there will be 30,000 members.

Have to fit a curve to it though.

He did. In fact he did it because of this thread. See his post on page one. He also almost banned you, yommamma, and pengwuino to prevent the count from rising.

I predict that we will never hit 30,000 because Greg will continue to delete members to prevent it. Once he's deleted all of the inactive accounts, he'll start deleting active accounts. I would suggest becoming a contributor as those will be the last members to be deleted. :tongue2:

What happens if greg self-deletes?
Has he tried that out yet?

Greg cannot self delete, there is a fail safe. Rumor has it that the entire universe would vanish if that were to happen. :bugeye:

hmmm...I just realized something! the universe is not entirely PF! :eek: only cyberspace would collapse, causing problems all over the world! So we'd invent a time machine to fix the problem, mess up something back in time...and...oh, yeah. the universe would collapse, never mind... :redface:

no it doesn't
