I hope it won't be like the first 50,000th eplaya member. Their post was an ad for toys. That got booted and we got another real 50,000th member.

Maybe the 1 millionth post will be for selling a pair of tickets to the VIP grandstand for the Burning Of The Man, front row 6 o'clock, complete with complementary flaming cocktails delivered to your seats (so you don't have to walk to the pavilion behind the grandstand).

If Fishy were posting the way she used to, I would have bet she would be the 1M poster.

I'm hoping it's me, as always one step ahead of the game, playing you all for fools and trying to tap into your good-will by acting nice until I score the big One-zero zero zero zero zero zero.
Then I can take off this false front of modest warmth for others.

As an aside, in the very very unlikely event that a mod deletes a post, how does that affect the count? What if the deleted post is the millionth?

It depends on how the post is removed. When things are parked or quarantined, it stays in the database and is still a part of the big bowl of soup that is the site's total post count. If something is nuked from space (for example, the spambot stuff), it's zapped from the database entirely and does not count.

Being that we're in the last few weeks before the event, I'd say the odds are that the milestone post will be ticketing-related. I kinda hope it's something posted by a site regular, and maybe we can come up with some kind of silly toast to him or her at the MnG on-playa. :D

I remember the day Figjam was at 7999 then 8000 posts...
If the swampcooler thread gets some more questions, he could easily be hitting around the millionth.

And some of the posters above: over 13,000, over 27,000, etc.
And Simon is just shy of 16,000!!!

I just noticed that Fishy was at 40,001 posts.
Would have been neat if that was the millionth post.

I could stay up all night and post over and over to myself and be the 1 millionth post.
