Brent Kimble suggested that we have a contest to guess when the software shows we have 100,000 messages online. I had vaguely given it a thought a few months ago, but I am glad he pointed it out, or I would have forgotten - at least not remembered to give it enough time to work well.
Turns out that we actually have posted 104,908 messages as of last check, but that number is never decremented when a message gets deleted (or lost - we figure that we lost several hundred - if not more - back around two+ years ago shortly after the transition in ownership because the previous owner - let's just say "dropped the ball" during hand off to me, and we moved hosting from GoDaddy to HostGator.
Anyway, the idea is for people to guess what date that will happen. The rules are pretty simple, but I might adjust things as we get closer, just depends.
One guess per member, and you must select a unique date. If it (the date you select) was already taken, the first person who guessed it wins. To be fair, once we pass 99,000 messages, I will probably quit accepting new guesses, though I might cut it closer. The counter right now shows 97, 593 - and I don't know exactly what the prize is yet, but I will figure out something appropriate.
Entry consists of a reply here with a date, the date you expect UC to _show_ we have 100,000 messages available online. No "gaming" the system, folks. Let's all play fair. I will update this first post when I have more details about what the prize is, and I am likely going to give at least a couple of choices, so that you don't end up with something that you already have, but I wanted to get things started soonest.
