Now now, you read that each post to win the contest has to be at least a sentence long. Or two. Like this, mostly.

And why must you remind us of this person?

Well this is a good contest, but posting in threads like this won't do much of a difference. Is either you have the knowledge to say something or give competent advice, or you don't. At least for me threads i can post, based on my newbie experience are few.

Based on daily posting trends I'd guess someone around 1,000.

However, please do note that we do automatically exclude forums such as general talk, that are not photographic, and people who post one liners that are basically just filler text will just be disqualified.

Thanks for pointing this out- you guys are right on

Too... Litttle... Time...

I really sadly enough want third place. Not that I'd be disappointed over the K-x's, but that lens somehow appeals to me

I think he meant a total of about 1000 posts will probably win the contest, not that you'd have to post 1000 posts a day to win.

I think 1000 posts in a day is a little much for most people LOL...I would guess that most of that would be considered as spam.

I usually just post around an average of 4 messages or posts per day, I guess I would be dreaming to have a shot at it.

4 posts a day!?

I dream of making 4 posts a day. Why, in my day a post was something we made to hold up a fence. Had to make 300 before breakfast...

I thought in the announcement that they said currently there were about 1250 post per day and that is what they were using to calculate when they would hit a million and my having the contest it would move it forward a couple of weeks.

Well 4 posts a day is a long shot for me too. But the prize is too good to pass away. I'm a Nikon user mainly but have one ME Super with a 50 f/1.7 and I just love that lens. The camera is pretty nice too. Just for being small enough to be not a big pain to carry around. I need to CLA it though.

This give away business has filled this forum with... hot air or, maybe something worse. People posting just to post. Maybe it would be better if humans talked mainly when they had something to say?

Two years from now when people search the forum for info, there'll always be this weird glut of posts popping up this month. They'll think, "Why were there so many threads on such-and-such in April of 2010? They couldn't shut up about it!"
