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!

72. As in a headphones + mic in one. I can use the speakers if necessary, but truly I STRONGLY prefer headphones for playing. As for laptop gaming?... I mean I have what used to be a decent gaming laptop and I can see how that could be a preference if you travel or are not at home frequently but I'd never prefer it to my desktop. That's just me, though.

Huh, I always thought I had your name right. Guess I never looked at it as closely as I thought

73. Desktop gaming all the way. Agree on that.

74. I had a dinosaur desktop PC when I was little and two laptops after that. I like the thrill of having not needing more than one hardware component.

75. I've never gotten into laptop gaming, always been on pc or Xbox.

76. The biggest issue I have with laptop gaming is that have, as you said, one peice of hardware (for all intents and purposes) which makes it near impossible (depending on who built it and how) to upgrade and near impossible to replace broken parts

77. I love the convenience of it though; actually I still managed to upgrade my laptop from 8 to 16GB of RAM since I was using it for my statistics degree at the time.

78: I’m a big console guy, always have been. Love being able to stretch out on the couch and play games on my big tv. Ironic as a kid I always dreamed of playing on a massive tv, now they tell me the small monitors display more clearly. I will suffer with low refresh rate, I refuse to not play on the 75 inch monster I bought.

81. I used to not like wide monitors but mine grew on me

82: what can I possibly be wrong about? I clearly acknowledged that monitors have a superior refresh rate, and further the resolution, brightness, everything about them is better. Childhood skater can not stomach that all of his hard work to afford a nice couch and massive television for the sole purpose of rotting his brain with video games, was all for nothing! I wouldn’t be so against monitors if I didn’t have to have a desk and a chair and everything else. I want to be able to sit in a position that is far worse for my posture! And no one can stop me!

83. Why not combine both worlds? I normally use a 27#-Monitor for gaming. I have one next to my bed for late night gaming ;-) But sometimes I attach a bluetooth mouse and bluetooth keyboard to my keyboard, connect it via HDMI to my TV, and stretch out on my couch. I sometimes play old games this way, like Skater I dreamed of such things in my childhood, and therefore I exactly do it with these old games.

By the way, playing in bad is an even worse posture. During a vacation, I played much too long and had tension headache for several days...

84. I merely jest, Skater. The truth is the best way to game is whatever you like most, no matter how wrong it is (I'm kidding I swear)

85. I've always liked console gaming a lot. I think it's the same reason of wanting to stretch out and relax.

86. Physical copies are always the best so I guess Xbox/ps wins in that.
