I'm running a giveaway for my members, the winner will be the member who guesses when the 2000th member will join. We only need 10 more members so it could happen tomorrow night when none of our mods or myself are watching. I know the user/member numbers don't match because some spammers never got deleted and other reasons I don't really understand. How would it be possible for me to know who the member is that joins, and actually turns the 'counter' over to 2000 if none of us actually see it?
If I wake up and there's 2003 members showing on the forum stats I can look at the Newest Members area and count back - is that the best (only?) way?
