We're getting very close now to the 100,000th post on the Forum, so we've decided to celebrate the occasion by having a bit of a giveaway!  Whoever can guess the day and hour of our 100,000th post, will win a massive 100 worth of Pendraken goodies!  Simply state the day and hour you think we will hit this milestone, and we'll see who can get the closest!

The Forum is one of our proudest achievements, and this is entirely down to you guys and the time and posts you've all put into it.  So this is our way of saying thank you to everyone who has taken the time to contribute over the years!

So, the rules are:

- You must be a Forum member to take part - Kind of goes without saying I think!

- You must have AT LEAST 25 posts to your name - Easily done, simply join in the discussions, or post up some WIP pictures and batreps.

- Guesses should be to THE NEAREST HOUR please - For example, Dec 21st, 6pm.  If the 100,000th post is made at any point between 5:31pm and 6:29pm, then you're the winner, and so on.  All times are assumed to be GMT.

- The competition will close to entries when we reach 99,500 posts - So no waiting until the last minute to enter your guess!

- No nonsense posts to bump the count up - Make sure all your posts are contributing to a thread/discussion/Totty.  Anyone making one word posts purely designed to bump the count will have their posts deleted.  Remember that this is a bit of fun, so let's keep it that way.

Let us know if there are any questions.

And just to throw some data out there, over the past 3 months, we've had:

Sept - 3784 posts.
Oct - 3231 posts.
Nov - 3259 posts
.

So, that would indicate that we may possibly hit the 100k before the end of 2013?  But Dec '12 we only had 2067 posts, so will there be a similar downturn over Xmas this year?  And will we get a rush of people frantically posting their WIP's and batreps to push the 100k closer to their own guess?!

Who knows, but it'll be fun to find out!

Best of luck to everyone.

 Thumbs up

Hello

3rd January 2014, 6pm GMT.

Ok, that's the guess from the unluckiest man in the room, now you can work on the distribution curve from that  Grin Grin.

Slightly worried about the "no nonsense posts". Does that mean all of mine will be discounted?  Sad

Are we allowed more than one guess? I'm guessing no....
