One more participant than last year with three more days to make a prediction.

I'm just curious how you know this. I can see last year was 610, this year's total participation is not up to date. You surely didn't count each entry. I might be missing a feature, so just curious.

Thanks!

The only other approach would be to count the number of posts in this thread, which is displayed just to the left of the "Page number" links. This is post 608, so it's close to 610.

I would not use the total post count as the defining number, as small percentage do not contain predictions (like this one).

FYI - A link to the contest is on the left-side menu of every wiki page, under "Links". Look for Bogleheads® contest.
To some, the glass is half full. To others, the glass is half empty. To an engineer, it's twice the size it needs to be.

On the first post of this thead, Taylor said,
"In 2016 we had 600 Bogleheads register.

And, as Lady Geek pointed out,
"the number of posts in this thread, ..... is displayed just to the left of the "Page number" links."

But, I had not thought about the few posts that had no predictions, so the number is not exact.
I like the fact, each year, we get more participants. :happy
