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!

34. Hahiha has been notified by Widestinger. I'll continue this count since it is relatively far along already unless we hear back with a definitive "no".

35. Like I have said countless of times: Just ignore troll posts like this one. The rules clearly state that you can. Someone should have just counted 30 after him.

36. I think it was more of an ignorant post by someone who was new to the forum game "Count to 100".

If it had been a non-count post or an obvious troll and/or anything defined under 'spoiling', you could have ignored it. Unfortunately, in this case the rules are quite clear:

2.4 No counter may post only the number or gibberish with the number.
4.0 The count shall be restarted from 1 if:
4.0.5 a spam post, defined Section 2.4, is made.

The thing with the multiple one- or two-word counts is if the post does contain text in addition to the number, and is not gibberish, but too short. Such posts would not automatically disqualify the count, unless there are 'too many' (which I think is left vague on purpose to give the commissioner some leeway to judge situations independently). As for what counts as 'too short', there is no strict definition either, understandably, but as a rule of thumb: if your post contains ca. 7 words or more and/or is a complete sentence and/or is a direct response to another post, you're on the safe side.

Hope that helps. Sorry for the count.

P.S. I deserve an honorary law degree for making that period argument.
