Oh, I see. Well that'll be a bit harder to track I think...but I could be wrong. I don't know if we'll be handing out any prizes for that as it isn't much of a contest.

Actually, it's pretty simple. ALl I have to do is go in the database an execute SELECT * FROM posts where post_id=100000;

Sure, but being the random slob who posts the 100,000th message is far less impressive than guessing a week or two in advance when it will be posted.

You guys should have more contests! You

Everyone is gonna want to make the 100,000 post then, and the contest would get a lot more people that want to enter.

The 100,000 poster is a cool idea

From what it shows on the front page you have to guess the correct date. The contest isn't who will hit the 100,000 post, but who will guess the correct date. There is a form that you need to fill out to enter the contest.

Well, considering that you can now pick whatever avatar you want, this contest is kinda pointless now, eh?

Avatars are not on yet. I don't know if they are going to arrange it where they provide the avatars or allow other people to provide their own. We'll see.

Well, actually I was thinking that the person who guesses should get a special avatar, and the person who makes the guess gets a special avatar
