    Honestly how do you not know we haven't already hit the 5 billion mark but the counter is just catching up always so until it catches up to that point we wont get it but in reality we have already hit the 5 billion mark. ahhhh.... :wink:

    I've built counters like these before (albeit on a much small scale). What you tend to do is collect the number aquired over a certain period of time, work out the average number collected, then the ticker is programmed to increase at that rate. Means it's not entirely accurate but runs much faster than collecting real time data and won't be terribly far out. The rate at which the ticker increments can then be easily adjusted.

    It's 23:08 pm local time in the UK, should I stay up all night and see what happens when we reach the 5 Billion mark, or go to bed? Dilemma!

    I don't quite understand what is so hard to believe about a computer being able to collect data and count up to 5 Billion? Its not like there is a person sitting there with a calculator logging into each of our accounts and adding up the numbers. That number is probably readily available at any given time. I would speculate it is in a database on a central machine and is updated on a set schedule each time data from what i am assuming are multiple servers are synchronized.

    But maybe I don't understand the concept of computers and automation....LOL

    Good thread though. You made me look. (-:

    Why don't you just set an alarm on the clock to wake you up by the time we reach 5 billion goos :D Of coarse we are guessing what time it might come at :(

    It's too competent for EA. It also spends no time gathering data so you know it's a guestimation at best

    If you tap the community counter up to 5billion does it give you the prize?

    Any change in the community goo total in between syncings is purely hypothetical. So this glitch is really just tapping for absolutely no benefit.

    EA clearly has a specific master total, because you get it when you re-sync, but I suppose there doesn't seem to be any evidence either way as to whether it is true or not.

    We know now that the glitch doesn't change the counter when it re syncs
