It seems only yesterday that we hit the 2 million post mark, but checking the stats we´re at 2966710. At 2159.18 posts per day that´s only a couple of weeks left. I´ll personally give a 25 euro gift to the 3 millionth poster..... assuming it´s a real post rather than "3mp!" or "did I win?". I´ll let the moderators judge the winner.

good luck

It is a lot isn´t it, if I remember the larest phpBB site is some MMOG site with 6.5 millions posts and gentoo forums was in 3rd place. I wonder what it is now.

Hmm, not on the dev forum, and if a mod can't access it probably not on their forum either. Now where is it?

This post by tr4nce is the real one. The other was only a prophylactic against "I'm 3,000,000!!!!11111 Aren't I cool!!!!111" or whatever.

So maybe the post in the admin forum was only made to distract people about mysteriously vansishing posts? And that was only done to cover up another, bigger lie?

Also see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conspiracy_theory :twisted:

So you're saying this is all an elaborate ploy from Curtis119 to turn everyone gay, there really is no Gentoo... if only there wasn't a PERFECT conspiracy we'd have some proof.
