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!

5. I remember making mistakes that ended up costing us like 3 counts.

6. It's whatever mistakes are what keep the count fun. If we never messed up the "insane" quest would be easy

7. I agree with that general sentiment.

8. Back in ye olden days, you'd have 30 seconds to edit your comment before a note was there that it was edited. That was pretty handy because some of the counts only took an hour or two to complete. So the count has truly been messed up countless times

10. I mean to be fair, Wide stinger has a point.

11. Yes he certainly has a point; although I think counting to 100 should be more of a "hard" quest rather than an insane quest though.

12. Yeah, but counting to 100 takes way longer than all the hard quests.

13. Whachu talking 'bout? Y'know we went 3 years without a CT100? And the only reason we're getting anything at all is because
A) they are allowed to help us count and
B) they do not interrupt us anymore

Also, no more fun CT100 name changes. That's a shame.

14. I'm happy for the extra XP certainly; I think insane quests should be somewhat harder though.

16. We had one run which took more than a year, it startet somewhat before the flash-cataclysm and took a long long time. I think, this count was worth an insane quest.

17. I think it can stay insane because it takes months for a successful count to happen and not many unique people have been part of it.

(Also Solas its Singer not Stinger)

18. That's true, even if we do pick up the pace on the count, it's not like there's a ton of people who'd ever really get it

19. If one person weights 80Kg, a ton of people would be 12,5 persons... That's less than 100, so we could count it!
