Terminal decline?by BrowserUk (Pope)

A few numbers:
Those are the dates on which the N-hundred-thousanth node was posted; and the number of days to accumulate that 100,000 posts.
Today we will likely reach 1,130,000. It will have taken 275 days to do so. projecting forward, 275 / 3 * 10 = 917 means it will be another 2 years before this place reaches the next 100,000 milestone.
It took 25% more days to accumulate the 11th 100,000 than it did the tenth.
Based on the projection, it will take 32% longer for the 12th than it did the 11th.
And projecting that rate of decline forward means that we won't reach the 13th milestone until September 2020.
You don't want to know about the one after that; because it won't happen.

Your choice guys. I've tried to liven this place up. Posted what I hoped would be interesting questions. Proposed change. Taken the insults.
Now its down to the rest of you. Hide in the shadows pouring scorn and derision upon any and every suggestion. Or stand up and be counted.
