    Hi All,

    We are close to hitting the 1 million post mark on APUG (judging by the total in the site header). It is hard to determine the actual number. The url of the most recent posts on APUG show 1,145,000 or so, which is likely counting spam and other posts that have been removed over the years. As far as I can tell, the number in the header is fairly accurate of actual live posts. This is a very cool milestone for any forum or forum owner to reach. I am proud to be a part of the membership amassing so much searchable data for traditional photography. There is a wealth of knowledge stored here, over 1 gigabyte of text. Congrats to all involved! 2 million here we come.

    Sean

    I'm going to be premature perhaps, but who knows, it may happen while I'm here today.

    A huge thanks Sean for all your hard work in linking this world wide extended family of photographers.

    It's such a sane and decent forum as well as being a major part of my photographic education, you got it right mate!

    Regards - Ross

    So, if we turn this into another "deleted" thread, by itself this topic could be the one to push it over the 1,000,000 mark! Congrats Sean on running such a successful and vibrant forum. I doubt there are many which have lasted as long and have grown as successfully as APUG.

    I haven't been here from the beginning. Not even close.

    But yeah, it's cool. I've been eyeing that ticker for a couple weeks now.

    So, who will it be?

    Now, if more people would just search, instead of asking the same basic questions over and over ...

    But, I suppose we would never reach 2,000,000. :tongue:

    I enjoy the give and take -- the sharing of knowledge and experience. For me that is what makes this place worthwhile.

    Thanks, Sean!

    Sean, don't you have any plans for a celebration when we hit the one million mark? How about giving something away to the lucky 1 millionth poster? How about other celebratory activities? This is a major milestone coming up, so let's celebrate.

    By my quick calculation, those posting to this thread have contributed 45,837 posts to the total (and that is excluding my contribution to the thread).

    So many of us have done our share. :smile:

    Thanks Sean + thanks everyone else.

    I think the 1,000,000 post should be about fixer.

    Looking at the totals on the header, we are also close to 50,000 members. So who's going to be the 50 thousand member and will they get a prize? We are also close to 1000 online at least at the moment.
