This is the 1337th topic on SC. Hahahahaha look at the URL.

Yay this topic won the most pointless topic of the year award... voted for by me! xD

Don't know if it's really the 1337th topic on SoCoder, since you can never really trust those ID numbers. But I've got to admit that it's really the most pointless topic this year

I expect the id number is sequential. However if it's counting from 0 then I'd expect this to be the 1338th topic.

Nope. Starts at one, this one is the 1,337th topic, i'd assume.

It's not '1337', it's a bucket of fail.

Nope. This isn't #1337.

Second topic.
Third topic.

|edit| Talk about this being the most pointless argument ever... |edit|

As far as I was told, all "items" on SoCoder are stored in the same database table. So there have been '1337' posted items on SoCoder. They may be forum topics or articles or something else, but there haven't been 1337 forum topics.

Jay will probably correct me on this soon.

Pretty talented though to post right on the 1337 ID number.

Quit posting and try Google.

Phoenix - I think those were test topics that got deleted from the database.

Although again, as Stealth said, Jay will probably turn up to correct us soon.

Wow, I never noticed it, but this site really does have some interesting id numbers. Out of a random pick:

Worry not! Jay is here to correct you!

Topics are their own little table, so yes, this is #1337, even if a few have since been deleted/whatever.

Posts, Snippets, Showcases, etc are all numbered by the numbers that are getting big.. They're all in table #2.

The negative numbers are Sections, (forum sections, link sections, showcase sections, or whatever...) which count as Table #3.

For the record, topic's 2 and 3 did exist, albeit only temporarily, for testing purposes!
