OK! :twisted:

The former records are:
The 1 millionth puzzle was solved on January 12th, 2004
Time to break the 1M record = ? (as I don't know the exact date since when the puzzles have been counted)
The 2 millionth puzzle was solved on June 3rd, 2004
Time to break the 2M record = 143 days :!:
The 3 millionth puzzle was solved on September 29th, 2004
Time to break the 3M record = 118 days :!:
The 4 millionth puzzle was solved on December 16th, 2004
Time to break the 4M record = 78 days :!:
The 5 millionth puzzle was solved on February 23rd, 2005
Time to break the 5M record = 69 days :!:

The 6 millionth puzzle was solved on April 19th, 2005
Time to break the 6M record = 55 days :!:

The 3M puzzle was solved in 25 days less than the 2M puzzle.
The 4M puzzle was solved in 40 days less than the 3M puzzle.
The 5M puzzle was solved in 9 days less than the 4M puzzle.
The 6M puzzle was solved in 14 days less than the 5M puzzle.

The average number is 17.6 days less than the previous record.

Out of this the probable date for solving the seven millionth griddler should be seen on 27th May 2005. 8)

BUT: Because the last time it took 5 more days to break the previous record, I'd reserve also some 5 days for the new record. :roll: The most probable time this will happen is a day between 27th May 2005 and 1st June 2005.

Well, that's for todays Maths lesson emoticon emoticon emoticon

Ok Domi! Thanks for the calculations, I was curious about them, but too lazy to count the days myself :scratch:

I think you're close, but a bit optimistic. I'll settle for June 4th.

Next question is, when will we hit 10 million???? Will that be before or after the Meeting? :mrgreen:

The 7 millionth puzzle was solved on June 12th, 2005
Time to break the 7M record = 54 days :!:



The 3M puzzle was solved in 25 days less than the 2M puzzle.
The 4M puzzle was solved in 40 days less than the 3M puzzle.
The 5M puzzle was solved in 9 days less than the 4M puzzle.
The 6M puzzle was solved in 14 days less than the 5M puzzle.
The 7M puzzle was solved in 1 day less than the 6M puzzle.

The average number is 14.8 days less than the previous record.

BUT: since it is summer time, and many people go on vacation (including Griddicts emoticon ), and after considering the last record breaking, which took only 1 day less than the previous one :clock: , I'd reserve a couple of more days for breaking the 8 millionth puzzle.

Therefore I say:

The eight millionth puzzle will be broken between 8th and 14th August, 2005. (If you want a precise date, let's say... hmmmm... :scratch: 11th August, 2005. :thumbup: :glasses7:

(This time I must be right!!!! :error: :toothy5: )

PS for Jeltje: The 10 millionth puzzle will be definitely broken AFTER the Meeting... Sorry :tongue5:

Hm, I'm just wondering what the influence of our MEETING will be. Some of the most fanatical users involved in solving a puzzle off-line for two days....

So I'll add two days to your guess: September 19th!!

Well, irishunic, you reminded us about this one, now it's your turn to have a go at the date emoticon

Weren't we close Chef! :hello: But it seems we have to continue this anyway.

I said November the 5th before, but the numbers seem to go up faster and faster. Can I change my mind (oh no, that never works...)? November the 2th will be my next guess.

But why isn't anyone else having a guess about this number at December 31th?

LOL, neither of us did... All dates from Oktober 29th until November 5th were 'taken', except of course the date it actually happened:

For those of us that are curious, how hard would it be to create a graph, showing the total number of puzzles solved over time? Not one that constantly updates, but basically get the counts for the beginning of each month since Griddlers.net opened. Paste those into something like Excel, and let it produce a graph. Then save the graph as an image, and post it somewhere on the site. I'd like to see if the puzzle solving rate is somewhat constant, or more of an exponential curve.

Being that it is the end of a year, now is a good time to put something like that together. Even if it were updated once a year, or maybe up to 4 times a year, it would produce some interesting statistics.

Likewise, graphs showing the number of puzzles on the site, and the number of users registered would also highlight the growth and popularity of this website. If not for us, then for the admin team as a "pat on the back" for a job well done.

hmmmm, sure hope I'm in the right place here... This is where the link from the site news referred me.

It's amazing to me how quickly a million puzzles get solved these days, so my guess for 17 million will be June 30, 2006.

Roselover: Congratulations, you are the first who ever got the date right! :occasion6:

And it seems I'm the first one to have a guess on the date for the 19th million. It's just too tempting to follow the trend: My bet is that it will be September the 5th. Or is this just too predictable? emoticon

You certainly have good reason to think it will be on the fifth again! What a record! :notworthy:

Since the fifth is taken, I'll guess the 4th of September for the 19th million griddler.

Hi Tomek,

So far it seems the pattern of reaching a million every 5th of the month is continuing. Or at least this month it was on the 5th again, I'm not sure about November really.

As for the announcements in the news, it was decided to have them only for each 5 Million from now on. So you can start to place your bets for the date the 25th Million puzzle will appear!
