FG to Hit 1,000,000 Posts!

January 1, 2006 the Flyinggiants.com web community came into existence.
Now on the cusp of the sites fourth birthday, Flyinggiants.com is about to hit one million posts!
You read that right, ONE MILLION POSTS! (Think Dr. Evil saying that line)

So to celebrate this huge mile stone in the life of everyones favorite site, our good friends at Hobbico have given us a brand new 8FG to give a way!!

So we are going to give this radio to the person who writes the post that is logged as post #1,000,000!

So get posting, enjoy the site. We are about 50,000 posts away from a winner.

Devise a strategy, or let fate be the decider. Either way, someone is going to get a sweet radio!

(Since no one can control who will post or when the one millionth post will take place, in the event that the actual one millionth post is made by a spammer, or one of the FG staff, or even one of our automated alert programs that run on FG, we will then move to the next available legitimate post in numeric order. ie. if 1,000,000 happens to be me, we will then see if the 1,000,001 post was made by an eligible person. If it was, then that post will be considered the winner)

Ah yes! there is a post counter that can be seen by anyone that visits the site. The question is should we tell where that counter resides in the pages of the FlyingGiants. Lets start with a couple of hints. The post counter is on the page that shows who is online. It sleeps just above the area that shows who is having a birthday. You can find it in just one click from the main menu....if you know what page to look for. I will give one more hint, it is very close to the bottom of the page that it is on.
