He would have won, but he edited his post thus disqualifying himself. I am going to give him a consolation prize for being such a good sport about it all.
************************************************** *****************
************************************************** *****************


Rules:
1 - Person to get the closest without going over wins a copy of Portal 2, courtesy of me.

2 - Only the person's first guess will count.

3 - The post must be unedited.

4 - Tuesday will be the last chance to guess. I will post the cut off point.
TUESDAY HAS ARRIVED AND THE CUT OFF POINT HAS COME. NO GUESSES BEYOND THIS POST. (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showpost.php?p=13929571&postcount=387)

5 - Thread count will be whenever I can get to it Thursday night (the 11th) or Friday morning (the 12th).
EDIT: Since I am here most of the morning, I will hold the count at 10:56 pacific time, since that is when the first thread of this forums was created.

Good luck!

lets see 82 threads so far... time since forum creation... 9 hours approx...
lets see ... thread creation velocity decay ???
lets see ... also account for velocity increases on future updates...
lets see ... hourly thread creation distribution... ??? ???
aww fk it

I'm going to assume that this forum is going to stay pretty active for the next week.

82 threads so far * 24/9 * 7 = 1530 and TWO THIRDS

Also, this contest is unscientific. Participants can clearly influence the number of threads at the end count. GlaDOS would be deeply disappointed.Yes it is unscientific. I will also be counting threads at some random time between thursday and friday. Point is to have fun, not be anal.

And by the way, if this is a legit topic, you ♥♥♥♥ing rock Goggalor. Thanks for doing this, it's nice to see people being selfless for a change :)Thanks :). I spend a lot of time in OT, and this kind of thing happens with regularity there. This is my first time offering the prize though. :D

btw, how do you know if you win?
You get an E-mail or something ?I will edit the OP to announce the winner. I will also PM the winner asking for the steam ID or email to gift the game to.
