So, the 200,000th post is 149 posts behind postID 208786, which means it's postID 208637 (derived from 208786 minus 149).

To be absolutely certain of that, you're going to have to check all 149 posts to make certain none were deleted in the meantime.

This is like waiting for the official results in the doping Olymipcs. "And the winner is...oh, wait...and now it's...hold on...OK we've got...no, wait..."

I vote for me, just cause. Do I get cake?

NO PICS, NO PICS, THANK U, THANK U

Sorry wouterrr, but halfway through, I've found two deleted posts already (208683 and 208685).

(However, you also posted post 208635, so you're still looking to be the one.) :)

It is that we have the same amount of posts and that we are from the same country, otherwise....

ouch, and a third deleted post, number 208773 (That's one of the "voluntary work in Morocco" threads, specifically the one in the General Talk forum.)
The problem is that that one was posted a mere 36 minutes before Hien did his counting. So the question is, was it already deleted at that point (in which case... *looks it up*
... oh never mind. post 208634 was made by wouterrr as well. *shakes his head* I guess there's really no way to take this away from him. :D

Congratulations, postcount-mate. You won this fair and square! ^_^
