With a little help from my friend Excel I did the math, if Ellie doubled her post count each year, it would take her 11 years and by the end of 2027 she would already be on the rooftop with 6144 posts.

EDIT: I realized that I did it as if she started doubling (is that a word?) her post count next year and she didn’t post this year, If she started this year she would be on the rooftop in 2026.

So either way, sometime before Lewisohn finishes his damned book?

I guess that my prediction in the time capsule thread that meanmistermustard will make the rooftop 20x over is now way more far-fetched.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

I did a little more math, and there’s a 99.9999999% possibility that Ellie gets to the roof before Lewisohn finishes the book, and the other 0.0000001% is just because supposedly nothing is impossible and nine nines are nice.

Though by 2027, the rooftop parameters might change again.
