3 years in a row. I'm a little late at it with this one, but the same deal goes.

The draft is a little under 49 Days away(!!)

Right now, including this post, I have 14,894 posts.. I average 10.55 posts per day.. So, according to math, I will have around 15,411 posts by April 25.

But I hate the math. I don't know if I'll make 10 posts per day until then.. I'll probably have less. My official prediction is that I'll have 15,325 posts by 3PM Eastern Time on April 25th!

How about you folks?

03-08-2009, 12:19 AM
I have 859 now, I'll probably have around 1100 by draft day? That's 4.9 posts per day.

Assuming there's a blizzard, my rep will be around -1500 because Sniper will be snowed in and have nothing else to do

I did think about making a rep thread though.. so.. good call!

It's impossible for me to predict. Assuming my fan base (you know who you are) whines to the mods enough, I'll probably be banned by draft day

So, I should be at 17,183. Teaching is cramping my style a bit. I'm going to guess 17,120, since I ***** out the weekends.

03-08-2009, 12:31 AM
****, there's some math involved here ..

Okay, so I average 8.49 posts per day and there's 48 days until the draft (I think) so that should equal about 6560 posts.

Cool.

Duuuuuude. If you're gonna go that far into the rep hole you might as well at least beat out RWFender for the all-time record.

How could you even go down that much? Someone would have to be dishing out like 50K rep to take you down that much.

CashmoneyDrew

It's just mathematically impossible for his rep to drop from what it was before this to what it is now so quickly. My guess is that another mod is just pulling a practical joke on him. Hell, maybe that sly SOB did it himself for some reason or another. Oh well.

I'm gonna change my post count guess to an even 5000 because I actually post a bit more than my current post-per-day average.

Bosanac01
03-08-2009, 12:53 AM

Around 700 mathematically, but in reality i predict 550 because Im sure to get sick of you people shortly and post less.

wicket
03-08-2009, 05:45 AM
2110 including this post at a average of almost 6 a day so mathamitcally i should go to over 2300 but my guess will be 2300 flat out since it is kinda slow and as long as the saints dont sign someone weird and awfull draf day itself will be the first big posting period for me.

iworshipbender
03-08-2009, 06:00 AM

Holy ****, I never realized I had more than 2000 posts. What the hell did I post about so much?

03-08-2009, 07:18 AM
Mathmatically I should get to 1,949 but it'll probably be more than that as I was away all last summer with no internet. So I'll go for 2,023.

Yeah, i'm on the same boat as you. I never used forums, and i never knew there was one here until my sign up date. A friend of mine linked me once to Scott's mock drafts and i loved it. It was the 04 draft, i believe, the first one i looked at. It took me 4 years to realize this place had a forum. How sad lol.

Lets see, I'm at 6,092. I'm posting an average of 8 per day, but I know it'll be more than that, becuase just a month ago I was averaging just over 6 posts a day. Math says I should have 384 more posts than I do now, for a total of 6,476. But At the pace I've been recently, I'll say I get right around 6,600. 6,617 will be my official guess by the time on the first pick starts rolling...
