You could just use the URL for the single post display and plug in the number 500K... but gives a URL of http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showpost.php?p=500000&postcount=1 which was authored by JBM3 on 9/2/2003 @ 8:53 AM. But that does not take in to account that posts are numbered sequentially and the official 500K post is going to be a higher number due to threads/posts being deleted and such. I don't know how to correlate the 500K'th active post to the actual post number stored in the posting database.

That is the 500,000th post, IMO

Accounting for deleted posts gets tricky because it can change so easily.

Going to the forums home page, taking note of the post total and quickly following the "new posts" link, going to the most recent post and then subtracting from that postnumber results in this post (http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showpost.php?p=527878) by Kaz. I tried it three times to guard against posts being made between the time I got the post count and hit the new posts link and got that post three times.

(very slow friday afternoon)

WOW! 500K! :yikes:

If it was Kaz, only fitting that it be somebody with several thousand posts. :)
