    Default The big 1,000,000!

    It looks like the MrExcel forum recently exceeded 1,000,000 threads! Quite a milestone. That's a lot of answered questions!

    Cheers,
    Eric

    400,000 members - currently at 398,143.

    Be Seeing You!

    Quite an milestone indeed! I note that the 1,000,000 threads is for the entire forum, but the bulk of those are from the Excel Questions sub-forum which, as of this post, stands at...

    Threads: 925,631

    Posts: 4,621,408

    It won't be too long now before the Excel Questions sub-forum itself hits the 1,000,000 threads and 5,000,000 posts marks.

    The growth rate also seems to be picking up, but we'd probably need the moderators to speak to that. I've been watching that number for a while, and I estimated we'd hit that mark sometime next year, but it crept up faster than I thought. This is thread 1,000,086 - I'd hoped to open the exact 1,000,000th, but someone else got it.
    Cheers,
    Eric

    For what it's worth, I recently looked at the front page of this domain (MrExcel.com) to see that it's gotten a face lift (looks nice!) In addition to that, Bill added an article talking about the 1,000,000 threads and a bit of history of the forum. Pretty interesting.

    Already past 400,000 members: Currently at 400,439.

    Number of posts: 4
    ,952,727.
    Still a way to go to reach 5,000,000.

    And there will be the 20th anniversary of mrexcel.com at November 21.
    Is there is anything planned?

    I definitely want to do something to commemorate the 20th anniversary on November 21. But I don't know what yet. Any ideas?

    Well, you could fly all the MVPs to Florida for a party!

    Since that's probably a non-starter, maybe run some MrExcel challenges like those in the old days. Once a month until November?

    Maybe some bios of the people behind the scenes.
    Cheers,
    Eric
