    So which post is post #2,000,000? I thought I found the right one, but the date on it seems wrong.

    It was mentioned at the end of the contest, with some congratulatory remarks for ITASOR, who was apparently oblivious to his "achievement." :p

    There have also been discussions that the "real" 2,000,000th post was later, since the "live" post count is off of the actual post count due to deleted posts, etc.

    Well, it we waited for the 2,000,000th post excluding the market and community forums, it would be about 2010 before we saw it. :D

    Not really something you can figure out though, especially if posts get removed after that *real* 2,000,000 post was posted. So its best to go with the number since that is the 2,000,000 post posted - even though there might not be 2,000,000 to view.

    For 3 years I've purposely avoided making any posts that would have prime numbers as their post number. Just check and you'll see. It's a private game I play just for fun, and nobody has ever noticed before. You get 1,999,993 brownie points for revealing my secret.

    I had to get a list of the first million primes to get the one closest to 2,000,000 - there are quite a few, 100000s upto 2,000,000 - so the odds are roughly 10,000/2,000,000 or 1 in 200 that any one of your posts is a prime. With 10,000+ posts, I'm pretty sure odds are in the favor of you having a prime post number :D
