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!

30. Hope is a good word. My life motto is to never over-estimate the general populace. Give people at large a chance and they'll do everything in their power to screw it up

34. It's rather odd, though, honestly. Many of the old flash games are more complicated and of higher quality than many successful $10+ indie games that get released now. You'd think with this much time passing, the quality of mobile games even would far surpass a 15 year old flash game, but most successful mobile games would never have passed the quality test for Armor Games, at least not back in its hayday

35. I guess for the most part, player base is mostly affected by the accessibility to a platform/game rather than quality of the game. Once upon a time flash games were the most accessible games to play. Of course, that has changed once smartphones became the norm.

38. When was the heyday of Armor Games exactly? I thought this sight has had several ups and downs.

39. Hmmmm, a few years ago was the last up. Maybe that was around 4 o 5 years ago? If I'm not mistaken the last time the site was booming was when the website had its own chatting feature.

41. As far as the hay-day for Flash games, at least, I'd say it was around the time of the first Kingdom Rush game, there was a several year period of absolute banger after banger of S-tier flash games coming out. Personally, I's day the peak of flash gaming, or browser gaming for that matter, was 2010-2015. As far as AG's community goes, there have been people talking about how it's been slowing down and dying for as long as I've been on here, since 2011. Everyone always said that it peaked in activity around 2008/2009
