20,000


#1

So which one of you had post #20,000?


#2

It was cfijames first post in this thread.


#3

Are you SURE about that Mark? That post was submitted on 12/13. As of this moment (0934EST on 12/17), there have been 20027 total submissions, not counting this one. I just counted 43 posts in about two discussions in “Notable Activity” that occured after 12/14, and that’s barely scratching the surface! Do you guys not count certain postings?!

The count could be off (we’re not huge fans of phpBB), but look at the URL I linked to: p=20000


#5

In that case, the counter on the main discussion page is off by a few hundred:

So my post that we all thought was #10,000 and I thought deserved a hat was not in fact the 10,000th post. linky But I do have the 20,000th post? I’ll take it!
David, we really ought to get those folks to make some hats… and then give me one!

Post IDs are a unique number for each post including posts that users have subsequently deleted. So, ID 20000 was handed out well before the 20000th “real” post.
