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!

63. It's been long, and now I feel old. On the other hand... Not becoming old would be much worse :-)

66. Why not hop in for a quick wish fulfillment. So long as you're counting "day" as "24 hours".

71. I'm liking gog.com much better than Steam; its a shame their library is more limited.

72. I haven't really used gog but I have heard about it a lot. While I'm sure it's missing a ton of features that Steam has (since it has nearly unlimited funding and has been around an eternity or two. But one thing I do love about is that it doesn't have DRM

73. Yes. Also, IIRC, it supports Windows 7 which Steam soon won't. Can't help it. 7 is just so much more sexy.

74. Windows 7 support is pretty hard to turn down. I'm using Windows 10, which is still pretty good, but I really don't want to have to use Windows 11.. Hopefully Windows 12 will come out soon. It'll have to be good. Microsoft would be throwing away nearly 30 years of consistency if they don't make a good OS after making a terrible one.

75. Yeah, I used to have one VM for any OS starting from DOS to Win7. GOG and Steam made things much easyer, but it is annoying that it depends on an current OS. I neither want to use my host for gaming nor update my VMs.

76. Whelp. Officially moved from Win 7 to 10 the past few days. Even though, technically, it's a dual boot and I just allowed access to my 7 files.

Think I'm gonna try going for a some flavour Linux on the (old, but technically newer) Win7 partition. Only thing I know so far about Linux is that they have a penguin mascot, though.
