The number that shows up to the right on the main forum page is actually just the latest person to change/add their badge number in their profile, and doesn't reflect the latest forum member. Not all forum members are Overland Bound Badge holding members. I could go into my profile and change my number from 202 to 0202 right now and I would show up in that panel as the latest member.

So, it isn't really what it appears to indicate.

I also found that out, while waiting for my membership kit to arrive. I then realized the problem, and had to update my profile when it arrived. A.. LIVE and LEARN moment:smileycat: I guess!
