    This is MR's 100kth thread.

    Added: Hehe, I wanted to post first to make sure it was I that made this big milestone happen. LOL.

    Congrats MR! This is great!

    I'm going by thread ID... and this is indeed 100k. The main site thing is wrong, there are probably some uncounted that were deleted or whatever, but this REALLY is the 100kth thread.

    Congratulations to MacRumors for this milestone. StarbucksSam, you should at this to your signature. Doctor Q will certainly be able to validate this, he is our resident numbers guru.

    This is indeed thread number 100,000, meaning it is the 100,000th thread created at MacRumors since the current forum database was created. The main forum page shows a smaller number because useless threads get deleted. There might also be certain types of threads that don't count toward the displayed total.

    I'll be honest, I knew this was coming... and I waited ALL day for it. LOL! I'm such a supreme loser. I just love MacRumors too much to pass up the opportunity to be the first six-digit thread poster.

    This is truly awesome Doctor Q. Would it be fair to say that we should hit 200,000 by late 2006? That is if the current posting amounts continue. :cool:

    You have the privilege of listing in your signature that you made the 100,000th post on MacRumors. I am sending you a virtual hug your way via the internet. Does that help, I hope that you feel better now. ;)

    Sorry I'm not at a pay grade to authorize anything else. :D

    I'll take the hug gladly - thank you. I still want the cookie, however. Make it a really big chocolate chip one, which in my language is a Venti Chocolate Chip Cookie (decaf, lowfat).

    The siggy is neato baby.

    I can swear we had some posts before April of 2001. I registered in January of 2001, and I know the main site had some kind of news thread to respond to stories. Can any of the older members remember this?
    At this pace we may hit a million by 2010:)
    I wonder how many posts Mr. A will have by then?

    Yes, there were forums before the current generation that are based on the vBulletin software. The thread count we now rely on is only from the vBulletin era. I don't know any stats on the previous forums.
