Next, you'll tell me that 41 other contributors have passed that mark, eh? (Willem for one - 52 is it?).

smiley - yikes Don't tell me you've counted *that*, too? smiley - rofl Maybe you could write it up for us.

We've got a tool for solo Guided Entries. I'm at a loss to figure out how we could count Post articles. smiley - headhurts

I know about where we are for Gheorgheniplex and Colours of Wildlife, but beyond that...

I'm not fully confident of Willem's count - but now I remember why I counted mine - 'twas Willem saying that he was working towards 100 paintings then thinking about sending them to a publisher to see what they thought.

Do you know of any publishing types hereabouts? Does NPL have any contacts?

A bit nerdy, I agree


Write it up? Towards the end of my herculean labour I wondered about that...
It'd make a good article, interesting for a norful lotto people but there are problems...

Who? Everyone? Ever? Gawd, how long have you got (more to the point, how long have I got left)?



What I did was (in Articles by Rod archive) reduce screen height to, say, 5 entries and scroll down Measure for Measure (ha!). That gave me an estimate and that encouraged me to continue.
Not a count because of extra spacing on longer titles(column width). I can't rely on wide spacing either (Brunel/Safari) because it's not always clear - some look double-ish but others are 1 1/2-ish and don't stand out well enough to give me confidence. In the end, I highlit 10/20/30... and checked (twice).



I can't see it happening unless you've got a better idea... and I don't think you know my background well enough to apply enough pressure...

smiley - rofl I think we'll leave counting to the mathematically inclined. I know Willem's over 50, but that's because we're numbering them.
