First AnimeAlley Contest - Guess When the 1000 Personal Post Mark is Reached

Yes. Your read that correctly. It's not a question of who will break 1000 first. It's a question of when. If you're unsure of who I'm referring to... Jeez Louise where have you been?

Anyways, post your guesses in this thread. Include the date and hour (Eastern Daylight Time - EDT*) you think our prolific poster will reach 1000 posts. Currently Manila time is 12 hours ahead of EDT, i.e.: 9am MNL is 9pm EDT of the previous day. EDT is GMT minus 4 hours. The member who posts the closest guess to the actual time will be in line for some anime related goodies from my personal warehouse (i.e.: closet). Please note: The honour system is the rule with this game. Please submit just one guess and please DO NOT change your guess after posting it.

Have fun!

The poll is a diversion but it could serve as a guideline...

* Remember, daylight savings time ends on Sunday, Nov 2nd, 2008 at 2AM. Clocks get turned back 1 hour then.

One addendum to this contest's "rules": While it is to one's advantage to post a guess close to the time when our esteemed member is about to pass 1000 posts, I will likely close the contest to further guesses when it looks like he'll reach the "goal" within 12 hours. Presently that means guesses should be submitted before he reaches the 950-975 post count range.

Hmmm... Psycho is at 931 posts (as of a minute ago) and not one guess so far?

^ Just to clarify... I'm not counting your entry in the poll as your guess. :) The poll is there just for fun and isn't part of the contest.

Folks: Just post the date and time (to the closest hour) you think Psycho will pass 1000 posts (eg: Nov 1st, 9am EDT).

I will definitely be watching that game as the outcome of that one and the Skins game Monday night will possibly change the entire order of the NFC East.

Well. We have two contestants: Tony K. and Saki. Psycho didn't pass 1000 posts prior to the time of Tony K's guess. Now it's a question of how close to Saki's guess it will be. If Psycho's post count passes 1000 before 2:30pm EST on Monday then Tony K. is the winner (by my calculations). Otherwise the winner (obviously) will be Saki. :)
