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) makes a stopping post (post without counting) if users and Knights are counting..
b. a user or Knight or Warden makes a stopping post (post without counting) 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.
NOTE: For the time being, Moderators are allowed to help Users count, so as long as the other rules are observed you do not need to restart the count if you see a mod count. However, if a Moderator makes a stopping post, i.e. a post without counting (not the same as a non-count post since they're technically different teams), it is considered an interruption and the count will restart.

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!

16. The whether most certainly is insane. At least here in Texas. Last week it got as low as 41 and as high as 91, all within just a few days

17. I always have to calculate to understand temperatures in Fahrenheit...
But did you know that there is a lowest possible and a highest possible temperature? The lowest is 0° Kelvin (or -273,15°C, or -459,67°F). It is a temperature where there would me no movement in atoms.
The highest temerature would be 1,42x10^32°C (that's a lot of decimal zeros!), or 3,56x10^33°F. This temperature would create a black hole.

18. Yes you are correct Halrazor and I think that's what the heat death of the universe is. In like 10 billion years all the stars will of died out and the whole universe will be at 0 kelvin (or the same very low temperature) and no more heat can be generated so nothing would ever happen again and the universe would die out. That's not exactly how it works but you get the idea.

20. Although spring started yesterday its getting chilly here around 45f in Brooklyn new York. I reached a scribe a few days ago and I doubt I'm going to be able to rank up to bard because there just isn't enough fun quest games.

21. Sadly I think I'm in a similar situation. Most of the really good quest games I already got the quests for many, many years ago

1. "2.4 No counter may post only the number or gibberish with the number." Well at least the count wasn't high, @rida2012 say the number and then send a message. Its always annoying to restart the count from 1 because I'm always worried that I'm the one making the mistake and that I ruined the count, like right now.
