3,999,514, when I started this topic.

What will be 4,000,000? How will you celebrate this milestone in the life of CaB?

If you look at when you quote people you can see we've already passed message 4,000,000. The board count just doesn't include deleted posts or something. So we need to hunt down 4,000,000.

I know what you're thinking: "the real 4 millionth post will be the one that rolls over the posts - deleted = 4,000,000 counter". But then if an older post were to be deleted it wouldn't be the 4 millionth any longer, and so it is WRONG HOW DARE.

I genuinely just randomly picked a thread to start hovering over messages and managed to find 3,999,997 and 4,000,001. That is FUCKING SCARY.

https://www.cookdandbombd.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,76137.0.html

So let's start hunting for posts made in the few minutes between those top two.

What if it's been deleted?

This.  And as obsessives we have maybe felt duty-bound to respond to it honestly rather than outright ignore its existence.  It says a lot that our series 11 discussion has been so short, when previous Doctor Who threads have run for ages.

There it is folks. The beautiful RFV did it.

I am glad it is RFV talking about the children’s TV series Doctor Who.  It’s heartwarming.

He’s made it up. It must be one of mine instead, a worthy 4m poster.

Yeah, the topic ID should be 56247 not 71389.  Thus:

https://www.cookdandbombd.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,56247.msg4000000.html#msg4000000

This.  And as obsessives we have maybe felt duty-bound to respond to it honestly rather than outright ignore its existence.  It says a lot that our series 11 discussion has been so short, when previous Doctor Who threads have run for ages.

Otherwise, great work, thank you!

I noticed when you quote a message, the url contains the post ID you want to quote. So I edited the url and it quoted this one, but because I built the quote elsewhere in a preview post the link was wrong, kindly fixed by Ambient Sheep.

Ah crap, I tried that right at the start and ruled it out because I thought it was dependent on the topic ID and not the message ID. But it bloody buggering isn't is it!

Good job.
