    Dennis, CONGRATULATIONS on such a historical event. I don't know how most Loungers will feel about it, but 500,000 is a humongous number and I wish we had a "prize" we could give you for being the lucky one. Keep up the good work, my man!

    PS: I was so excited about WOODY's reaching such a milestone that I forgot to congratulate Dennis! Way to go!! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Re: 442,002

    I believe that the difference is deleted posts and posts in Forums which do not retain all post history; the post number of deleted and expired posts is not recycled. Technically we are celebrating our 500,000th post, rather than having 500,000 viewable posts.

    John is correct. The post number increases by 1 automatically for each new post, so Dengar's post was the 500,000th one posted in this version of the Lounge.
    But some posts are deleted by the poster, others by moderators or admins, and posts in boards such as Scuttlebutt expire after a certain amount of time. The Lounge statistics only count posts currently present. You can deduce that some 58,500 posts are not available any more, for one of the reasons mentioned above.

    if you don't mind, I'm arranging for a plaque to be engraved with "John is correct", then I will ship it to you for your signature, Hans. Then, next time the bride gets on my case, I'll just point to it on the wall! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    She will observe that it is signed by another male and immediately discount the value. <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15> Also, it will probably be declared a rules violation and then you'll be in deeper hot water than normal. <img src=/S/yikes.gif border=0 alt=yikes width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/sarcasm.gif border=0 alt=sarcasm width=15 height=15>

    If I got one of those, it would be immediately supplemented (i.e. countered) with one that read:
