are you sure it was you (i posted in a different thread mate)
I saw 999,999 and then I hit post, then i saw 1,000,001
hence it was you or me...but it was in different threads, so what we need is the time stamps!
no i do think the prize should go to the best man....we'lkl just have to figure out a way to get the timestamps!
and it was my 1000th post as well!
well actually that cant be true, because the only two posts made in those few seconds were yours and mine.....and that took the post count to 1,000,001. This means that although you deleted a post, mine was still the millionth post.
And you ask why i care so much....because clearly I am a nerdy geek with too much time to spare.
Good to see you being such a gentlemen though!
well frankly the minor technicalities are rather absurd, since anyone who was desperate enough could actually just go right now and delete 20 of their posts, hence rolling back the post count, and then take the millionth post for their own. Pencil queen is apparently the true millionth poster (that excludes post deletes).
It's very dubious as to who got there first and on time....because after your post it said "1,000,000" and after my post it said "1,000,001" and we were definitely the only two posts made in that split second.....So i guess this is what happened:
999,999 appears, I make the post, then you make a post....count taken to 1,000,001...then system registers your post lost....then count drops to 1,000,000 again.
In effect we can both take the prize then....it was so stupidly close to call...and with the technicalities...who knows.
