    Soon my friend soooooon.

    Taking care of prize shippery first then we'll be releasing the freebies one at a time gradually throughout November so's not to cause a stampede. I'll be giving a headsup to the Stocktobians on this thread before we post in the classified section so you'll have a decent chance of bagging something you might have missed during the month.

    If only it was a real thing that existed in more than pixel form. If it was I'd paint 'Al' on the side of it and go and live up a mountain.

    Just noticed the latest numbers for the thread:



    Looking more and more likely that we'll beat the total number of views for Stocktober 1 quite soon now. I thought that we'd have difficulty catching up when we were still 15,000-ish away with only a week and a bit left of the actual STOCKTOBER2! month left, but like @X-13 said way back in the thread, the views carry on after October is over.

    Previous stats: This was capped on 23/10/2013:


    Wonder where it'll be in a year's time so this thread is as old then as the original is now?

    Interestingly, the figures for Stocktober TOS were sitting happily and steady at about 44,500 a few weeks back (no cap, but I think this would have been early October 2013 when I was looking at what targets we had to beat), but it looks like a few of you have been reviewing the shenanigans of last year recently and it's had a 2K jump since then.

    Keep going people, we're not far from making this the awesomest Stocktober thread by all possible numerical measures!

    Cheers,

    Al

    EDIT - I love doing the stats when they keep saying biggerer betterer bosserer
