Well I'm doing my part to get to the goal for August....
Not yet August, thank goodness, or does your clock fortell the future!

Aren't we still "on the clock" for July?
In theory, we could still reach 55K this month.

At some point the clock is reset and all posts will begin to count towards August.

Either way, I'm spamming my way through.

I won't buy a K-1, if they give me a free one.
But, with my luck, I'll have to

Based on this post from Adam on 7/ 26, we should still be on the July count:

"There have been some questions regarding the timing of the raffle threads. The raffle threads will go live approximately 1 full day after we reach 40,000 posts, at the times specified above. There will be a test raffle thread several hours earlier so we can ensure that the system is correctly enforcing the contest rules, and running smoothly.


At the current rate it looks like the raffle will happen on July 29th or 30th.


If at the time the winner is drawn, the post count looks like it will reach 55,000 by the end of the July giveaway period, the prize will be upgraded to a K-1 II. Based on the current average posting rate, this does not appear likely.

As far as I know there is no way to track how many posts have been filed over the 40,000 post mark

so there is no way for us to determine how many of the 15,000 additional posts have been filed.

perhaps one of the mods could figure that out for us?

Nope.

Classified information.

Only Adam and Ole have access to that data.
