    It took me a minute to realize what the post title meant. For those unaware, the URLs for tildes posts have an auto-incrementing ID in the path that is composed of base36 digits, which contains the normal decimal digits 0-9 (10 of them) as well as the alphabetic digits a-z (26 of them). The linked post (https://tild.es/1000 with ID "1,000₃₆") is the first post whose ID contains 4 base36 digits (equivalent to 46,656₁₀).

    Edit:

    For context, Tildes posts won't reach 5 base36 digits (10,000₃₆) until post # 1,679,616₁₀.
