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!

87. That is one of the biggest advantages of consoles, for sure. Though Steam at least has said that if for whatever reason they go out of business, they have a dead-man switch that will disable all DRM for all games. That and the fact that you can still re-download games that have been delisted put PC gaming in a pretty safe place still, somewhat surprisingly. Though physical copies have the huge disadvantage of not having game updates, which puts consoles in not much of a better situation as far as preservation goes, especially when the update servers for older consoles inevitably start being turned off

89. A little mercy on one's eternal soul never hurts; I was teasing you a bit @skaterkidwhopawns. Please let me know if this bothers you. Yes there are 85 quest games now.

93. I had 8 working quests this month and 2 which did not work. I've completed the tasks for Building Rush but cannot get "Stuffed Mattress" and "Big-Rig-Wrecker". But even without the quests, I'm happy to have the games back.

96. Ruffle is not different to any emulators. I've seen emulators for DOS, Amiga, C64 and Atari - They all were half finished when they were created and got better from year to year. Currently most games work fine if you take the time to understand the technology and solve problems. But that's the price for playing "dead" games after their resuscitation ;-)

97. Ruffle and supernova are my personal picks although right clicking on ruffle brings up some menu and for some games that's annoying.

98. ! B2B warning ! Yeah, that's an issue the Ruffle-Team is already discussing. I hope they find a solution. I just completed "House of Wolves" which is impossible without right-click. I had to use a totally unconventional way to make it work, by exporting the savegame, downloading the .swf and later re-importing it into Armouria. But hey, it worked!
