Given we need about 150 posts on the last day of the month tomorrow to avoid it, a new nadir is now inevitable. No

In the good ol' days (about 4 years+ ago), Dello would've gone on a bullshit-athon to rack up a quick 200 posts. I think the smelly frog in charge is probably thinking "meh". shrug

So, our first ever sub-1000 post month will be April 2017.

Sad days. Sad

It's the IPL. In full swing apparently, and look at the interest.

I blame Dello. Back in the good days he created a sub forum and individual match treads for every IPL game.

30 April 2017 requires 137 posts for this month to avoid the embarrassment of "the worst posting month ever".

Good luck with that.

In our hey day 137 posts a day (4,000 per month) was a bad month.

Aye. Historically, the Zombie months are April, May and October.

April and May are the months after our first class season finishes and before the UK season starts in earnest.

October is the reciprocal.

Banindia.

927 down, if the Poms join in you might yet get your 1000 ...

I was going to try for the thousand but it got boring so I have given up.

There is nothing wrong with 940 anyway. Lots of forums would be more than happy with that many.

The latest Forum Statistics update has April 2017 at 988 posts, so 1,000 is still possible, with 9 hours left in April in England.

Hell, if tricycle and a few Poms (and the insomniactic WideWally) goes berserk and make 50 posts on the Windies Test/and other thread, then the nadir of 1,048 may be threatened.

Looks a decent effort overnight from a number of regulars.

At least we cracked 1,000 posts. We might even get close to our all time low of 1,048 with 1 hour to go in 30 April.

Geez, we almost made the previous nadir. In a sterling effort on the final day of the month we managed over 100 posts to reach the official April 2017 posting total of 1,026, just 22 short of the previous worst posting month.

New monthly nadir - 1,026 posts.

BTW, I emailed Mon-keh on his personal email addy (that he provided me with some time back when he wanted an image uploaded to the Forum). I was just checking he is OK, given we've seen neither hide nor hair of him in months. He last posted on Jan 11 this year.

I have no idea if he still checks his old ngam email inbox.

Hope all is cool with him.

We could at least have aimed for a more meaningful and memorable number like 1066, or 1080 ...

It's your fault, skully.
