I think this is just even more proof of what a fantastic community we have here at MR, thanks especially to Arn, the Gods and the Mods!

Here's to the next 2,500,000! :)

technically yes you are correct, but if you hover you're mouse over the post number on any post in any thread, you'll see a number down in the status bar, providing the status bar is open on safari and the like.... but anyways... that number is the number of the post throughout the site including some that are not typically counted in the method that you shown.

Why should deleted posts count?
They do not count in the official total. However, as noted by Mitthrawnuruodo, members have hit the 'Reply' button over 2.5 million times.

I read the thread title as two 500 000 posts, think that you were making a thread about mad jew and ~Shard~ both having that many posts each.

:D

I'm serious, I really thought that.

Do those numbers take into account the Political Forums and the wasteland?

Yes.

Time to press the BigRedHamsterWithAPancakeBanAll button.
or
Time to press the DoNotPressThisButton button.
Didn't a forum do that for April Fools? Put a "Do Not Push" button on the main page. All people that clicked it got banned for the day. :p

Technically, not correct. You hit the 'Reply' button when replying to an existing thread, but to create a new thread (which also counts as a new post), you click 'New Thread'. ;)

And just to really be nitpicking: To post this I hit the Quote button. :D

And to nitpick further, I posted this with my MR Widget which incidentally, hacks into Dictionary, finds my most commonly typed words and reposts them in all threads it finds. I love being efficient (although inherently off topic). :)

Hey! Can you send me a copy of that widget? Then maybe some day I too can reach 5,000 posts! :D I always wondered how you did it.
