I've just noticed that this question How do you make a local (LAN) server in minecraft? has over 1 million views!

I think things like this are worth special announcement, for example StackOverflow did such for exiting Vim question back in 2017 - https://stackoverflow.blog/2017/05/23/stack-overflow-helping-one-million-developers-exit-vim/ , which inspired this question click-bait title. Btw we probably have less traffic than SO, so it's even bigger achievement!

Is there any other cool questions / answers we all should be proud of?

For those curious, here is a list of questions with more than 1,000,000 views on Arqade. The top question is actually a Counter Strike question, which sits at over 2.4 million views:

How can I get more headshots?

It's also interesting to note that 5 of our 10 questions with 1 million are all for Bethesda games, 2 are Minecraft, 2 are Counter Strike GLobal Offensive, and one of them is for a game I've never even heard of before called Hill Climb Racing:

Best vehicle for each stage in Hill Climb Racing

The sites first question was What is a good strategy to deal with lots of engineers turtling on the other team? It was asked six minutes and 25 seconds after the private beta for the site began which was on July 7th 2010 at 19:00 UTC. One week later, the public beta began for the site. You can see this on the Area 51 post that proposed this site. I suppose that is something to be proud of? Look how far we've come!

If I did my Data Explorer query right, our oldest question is How do I move Steam games to a new computer without re-downloading them? which predates our first question. How? Because it was migrated from SuperUser nearly a year and a half after it was asked on that site (posts retain their original posting date even through migrations).
