🎯 Countdown to 74 million registered cards

If no one minds, then I will initiate this countdown. Ok?

Here we keep track of Postcrossing’s path to the level of 74 million registered postcards.
And we are guessing when the number of registered postcards will reach the 74 millionth level.
Everyone can make as many predictions as they want, at any time.

On the main page of Postcrossing, we can find out how many postcards are registered in the game at the moment.

And here we can see monthly statistics on registered postcards.
These data will help to calculate or guess the moment of passing the level of 74 million.

Please let’s make our predictions of date and time in UTC format.

Well, based on the results of this countdown, we’ll evaluate each prediction as the ratio of the error (between the fact and the prediction) to the distance from which the prediction was made. And we’ll choose the best (smallest) value of all for each participant. And so we’ll determine the most talented (or lucky) diviners.

That is, it is good to make an accurate shot, but it is even better to make it from a longer distance.

Let’s go!

I will go for 1. Oktober, world postcard day. :postcard:

But proably it will slow down a bit because of WPD, when everyone tries to keep sloths open for that day.

As things have speeded up a little this summer compared to last year, I’m going to go a bit earlier than I would have otherwise. I expect there will be a slowdown in September as some save slots for World Postcard Day, but then lots and lots will be sent on the day itself. So they’ll probably even themselves out.

So my guess is 19 October, 10.19 UTC.

This one will be interesting because of the WPD. I think it will first slow us down and after it we’ll go fast.

My guess is 22 Oct at 04:09pm UTC
