This is a pool for predicting the date at which the number of Featured articles (as defined by the official article count presented on the Wikipedia:Featured articles) in the English Wikipedia reaches 5,000 (five thousand). See the official counter for the current number of FA articles in the English Wikipedia is {{FA number}} currently 4394. The person who comes closest to the actual date is the winner.

The English Wikipedia FA article count reached 2,500 on May 5, 2009, thereby closing this pool. This pool opened on January 27, 2009, shortly after the FA statistic reached 2397 based on the figure in Wikipedia:Featured articles. Feel free to suggest what the article might be about, but that does not count towards winning his contest. Appearing as an FA on the Main Page has no bearing on this contest.

This pool is closed. Any further votes will be reverted.
