I would also be very interested to know what the most-subscribed topic is. Or the topic with the highest number of different members who have posted in it.

We have so many examples of our advances in both shared knowledge and civility that one hardly knows where to start, save to thank all who monitored and developed this site for their time, attention and patience. May the posts continue to reflect the adaptability and potential of our common interest, and all those who share it.

Jeff - When you hit the "Submit" button for that 1,000,000 post, did confetti come down from the ceiling, trumpeters start blowing their trumpets, strobe lights start to flash, and dancing girls start to shimmy ? Congratulations, great job. Looking forward to a few more mill !

I believe Jeff grabbed the millionth post for himself, and started this thread with it.

The other stats that were asked for would be interesting to know.

Congratulations on the milepost! (I think that's more appropriate than "milestone" :) )

Per the URL, that was post # 1071723. I'd guess the public counter doesn't include vaporized spammer posts.

Very good point. I was tracking by the counter at bottom. I'll look into getting some of the stats you guys want. I have a php manual somewhere.

I did grab the millionth; I was kind of stuck; I had to go out in the next five minutes, and I didn't want to miss the MILEPOST!

I think I have some confetti left over from a wedding somewhere....... :0
