This was 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 English Wikipedia would reach 1,000,000 (one million). And Wikipedia reached 1,000,000 on Sunday, March 1, 2006 at 23:09 (UTC). This pool opened on December 1st, 2004, at 23:47, about when the 410,000th article was created. This pool was closed for entries on March 18, 2005. Shortly after the English Wikipedia article count reached 1,000,000. András Mészáros came closest to the actual date, March 1st, 2006, and became the winner (of eternal fame). The correct date was March 1st, 2006. The current number of articles in the English Wikipedia is 6,509,121.
