Three million from tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of people. 1.78 million from one being... That's another story.

Well, just realize the 1.67M or whatever number was for the number of IDENTIFIED species, and the scientests theorize there are a whole lot more that have not been identified.   One source (did a quick google) was estimating perhaps as many as 30-50M total species.

Though if the global die off continues, that may become a moot point.

Gimme six billion years and unlimited power, I'd come up with a few neat designs.

Bah that one was not that great. They needed a funny one for the 3 millionth.

well unfortunately, it is very, very hard to make the creature be exactly the 3 millionth.

How do you tell the number of the beast? Where does it say 'creature number 3,000,000?' I can't find a number associated with any creature, other than its DOB. Where is the creature number information, and how do you see it?

Three million critters ey?.....Considering God's almighty powers and stuff, I reckon he just got lazy when he created the Earth!.  :D

There's a difference between lots of crappy creatures and intelligent design.

Yeah, I'm trying to find out who has the three millionth myself. Apparently I'm in the running according to a few people on the main messageboards. I've pmed a few Maxis people to find out, but no word yet.

Potentially there could be multiple 3 millionth creatures, depending on how deletes fit into the picture.

I think deleted creatures count since i doubt the counter goes down.

The counter is the result of a query counting the total number of creatures in Sporepedia, so it should go down when a creature is deleted. Otherwise it shouldn't match up with the "Showing 1-20 of 3,016,933 Newest Creatures" text.

Does it count the creatures that weren't shared?.

AFAIK it only takes creatures that has been uploaded into account. The count is not for creatures created but for creatures available for download on sporepedia.

Yes but then us slightly less than one million Spore users Claim to be nether omnipotent or omnisentient and have only had a couple of months ;).
