This is a pool for predicting the date at which the number of articles (as defined by the official article count presented on the Special:statistics) in the EnglishWikipedia reaches 130,000,000,000 (one hundred and thirty billion). The person who comes closest to the actual date is the winner (of fame lasting one hundred and thirty billion years). The current number of articles in the English Wikipedia is 6,562,593. It may be a while.
The pool will be closed for entries on the day that the English Wikipedia reaches 120,000,000,000 (one hundred and twenty billion), so be sure to place your guess before that date.
To enter the contest, enter your name under the appropriate month header below (create it if it doesn't exist), along with the date you predict. 12.00 UTC (noon) of each day is assumed, unless an exact time is specified (in UTC). Changing the prediction is allowed up until the date the pool closes.
