The original "This Thread is Currently About" is back! Yes, it's Count to 100!

HOW TO PLAY

1. Count by ones from 1 to 100 in 100 consecutive posts according to the Core Rules.
2. Restart the count from 1 after:
a. a Moderator (or an Administrator) posts if users and Knights are counting..
b. a user or Knight or Warden posts if Moderators and Administrators are counting.
c. breaking a core rule, spamming, or cheating.
d. reaching 100.
3. Announce why you restart the count so other counters don't get confused.

CORE RULES

No mistakes. A count must start from 1 and increase by ones up to 100, save for exceptions noted.
No double-counting. No counter may count two consecutive numbers.
No back-to-back counting. No two counters may alternate for more than three consecutive numbers.
Okay: P1 P2 P1 P3
Not Okay: P1 P2 P1 P2
Okay: P1 P2 reset P1 P2
No editing. No counter may edit their post. If an edit tag shows on a count, the attempt is forfeit.

ADDiTiONAL RULES

No "spamming". Please don't post only the number and please don't post gibberish, either.
Multiple one- or two-word counts may also disqualify a count.
No "cheating". This shouldn't need to be said. Counting to 100 doesn't count if you cheat.
This is an exercise in teamwork, not rule bending.
No "spoiling". Don't mess with the count. Posts should start with the correct number.
Posts with no numbers should be ignored. See also: No non-counts.
Posts with intentional mistakes should be ignored.
No "spilping". If this is your first post in this thread, please post "I'm new and here to count to 100!"
No non-counts. No counter may post without a counting number or make a post without bolding that number if that counting number is not at the start of the post.

COMPLETE SET OF RULES
Please refer to the complete set of rules for additional information and examples of what is valid or invalid.
DiSCUSSiON THREAD
Please also check out the discussion thread for new gameplay or rule proposals or general discussion on the gameplay and rules of "Count to 100".

END GAME

Once you reach 100, you start this Sisyphean task all over again back at 1. Users should notify the Commissioner of the Count (HahiHa) that the count reached 100 and the Commissioner will review it to make sure there were no mistakes or cheating. If there were no mistakes or cheating, then the users who took part in the successful count to 100 will get a shiny new Quest!

I say the back-to-back rule is necessary. For the reason you stated.
How do we gain points?

3. I would assume by reaching 100.

4. One would hope not, being quite difficult and all.

5. You just goofed up by breaking a rule you supported. Anyway:

1) I support the no back-to-back rule for above reasons.
2) I do not support the no editing rule because I don't see a problem with correcting mistakes in case of a ninja.

Did you know that asking me questions in this thread also compels me to post? This was an issue in previous threads too.

Users will only gain points upon a successful count to 100.

ninja posts make it so fun though! Hmm...

2. I believed that it would go P1, P2, P1, P2 and that would be fine but P1, P2, P1, P2, P1 would be against the rules.

3. It seems that the rule is interpreted as P1, P2, P1, P2 is against the rules. To avoid a violation, P1, P2, P1 must be followed by someone other than P1 (which is a double post) or P2 (which is a back-to-back post).

8. Since the mods have already been attracted by a question, I will ask the following:

What does the (3) in the Users score mean?
