Sorry I wasn't online to pounce yet again on a milestone post for OC.net.  I usually relish the opportunity to make the big milestones by posting these anniversary threads (you'll notice that if you peruse the milestones below).  Oh, well - birth of a child took precedence this time.

Anyway, as per usual:

Congratulations on yet another milestone!

The first thread:

Oh, and to toot my own horn:

At the pace we've been going, we'll likely hit the new milestone before we hit the new year!

We've done it, with a few weeks to spare!

My word!  another milestone and here is this comment from the last one from Fr. George on January 26, 2010:

And so it came to pass.

Hurrah!

Congrats to OC.net. This site has been very accomodating to guests and is certainly a wealth of information. I hope to be around the forums when it hits half a million.
Well, papist, you made it.

There is no such thing as "infertile" periods in the woman's cycle. There are only "less fertile". Therefore, NFP is taking advantage of the "less fertile" with full realization that conception can, and sometimes does, take place.

The Catholic "Couple to Couple League" which promotes NFP in the States and in other countries offers these statistics as part of its programme to induce Catholics to use NFP...

1.  NFP has a 1% failure rate (i.e., the wife conceives when a pregnancy is not wanted)

2,  Condoms have a 7% failure rate.

In other words, it is pushing what Catholics call "the contraceptive mentality"  - the NFP method is more effective in preventing pregnancy!  This is obviously the truth since many Catholic families have less children than their non-Catholic neighbours!!!



How is NFP preventing conception?

The Couple to Couple League which is staunchly Catholic, says that NFP fails to prevent conception in only 1% of its use.   I bow to the experts.

One can also point to the fact that in many European cities the Muslim birthrate is greater than the Catholic birthrate.  Obviously the Catholic use of NFP is being very successful in preventing conception.
I just don't see it as actively preventing conception, maybe I need to think that out a bit so I can express it better.

Many years!

No, it didn't - it's just that he had wished that he'd be around for the 500,000th milestone, so Isa quoted him from today (after the 500k mark had been reached) to indicate, "hey, you made it!"

Out of curiosity, how many registered users do we have, and how would someone perusing the forums find this information out?

There are statistics near the bottom of the front page - under the heading "OrthodoxChristianity.net Info Center" (which, consequently, if you see that heading and nothing below it, click the "+" to the far-right of the blue bar and it will expand) - and there is also a link to a further statistics and records page ("More Stats").

I think it will come quicker than we think. There are many more people posting here more often than in previous years.

I don't know.  For 100, 200, 300, and 400,000 I made the anniversary posts into the milestones (i.e. I hovered until 199,999 and then clicked "post).  However, for this one I was offline with our newborn, so I didn't have a chance to see which one made it.

I was out of town; so another milestone passed without my finger hovering over the "post" button.

Considering the current posting pace, we'll be at 700k before Pascha.

You might have to do some small advertisements and donate the proceeds to the church, or charity, or something.
