Lets try to guess when AFF reaches 50,000 posts. Deleted posts do not count, only actual posts!

There is no prize offered at this stage.

Dates & Times are AEST. To make it interesting, all predictions must be entered by midnight, AEST, 22 November. (changed from Original of 30th November at the request of the OP).

Closest guess to actual post time will win - regardless of whether the guess is earlier or later than the posting time. Winner will have name engraved in Winner's Podium honour roll.

Good luck to all.

I was wondering if this had slipped through the cracks or if everyone was just being coy...

Some people like to wait till the last possible moment before posting a prediction.

Should make for an interesting guessing contest with most predictions close to each other.

Why does the edit of the OP not show up as an edit?
Neil must have a super secret way of editing without leaving edit marks all over the place. ;)

No need to worry. Neil is very trustworthy. Plus all results have to be verified by the scrutineer.

Don't know. I made the edit after receiving a PM from Johnk requesting it be changed. I was expecting it to show "edited by NM at ..." at the bottom of the posting.

I am guessing admin has been tweaking the software settings again.

Interesting as the change you made to the Winner's Podium thread has the "Last edited by NM ...."!

Last edited by NM : 16th November 2006 at 10:51 AM. Reason: Added latest winners per request from JohnK

Possibly a transient system failure in the forum software for the editing to this thread. Also the Winner's Podium thread was created before the latest update to the forum software around May. I don't know the reasons why and I won't worry as I fully trust you to do the right thing.
