    Wouldn't it be funny if it were an obscenity-laden post that got someone banned?

    Hmm, still a few hundred to go. I guess this board is very much a North American/European board.

    A serious overestimate, it would seem. 348 now?

    If you hover your cursor over the 18 at the top right of your post, the post number will pop up as a tool tip on the screen to show where that link will go. That assumes you have tool tips enabled to pop up.

    If not, then you may need to click it and take the post number from the address bar.

    How do I know the ultimate number of a post? I've got to log off, but whoever gets the 2 millionth owes me for the assist.

    Move your mouse over the "#24" in the upper right corner, and look for the post number at the end of the hyperlink.

    278 to go, that's fast.

    Preferably, the 2 millionth post would not talk about being the 2 millionth post. Or something like "24 to go!" would be nice.

    I, for one, welcome our new 2,000,000 post overlord.

    I have about 1.5% of all the posts on BAUT. That is really scary.
