More BALANCED tug of war to 5000 [Ponies allowed]

  • NOTE: OUR GOAL IS CURRENTLY 5068; READ EDIT BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS.

    Sooo the tug of war to 5000 is looking dead. Like we're never going to win.

    NEW THREAD!

    Rules:

    -No double posting.
    -Add 1 to the previous poster.
    -If a red posts, he/she may SUBTRACT 100 (ONE-HUNDRED) from the count.
    -Reds may betray their own company and add 1 rather than subtract 100. The option is yours.
    -ANY GIVEN red may not post to subtract 100 more than once per day. (It's a new day when, in PDT/PST, the clock strikes midnight) (You can post as much as you want just to say stuff, but only one of those posts per day may subtract 100.)
    -Multiple DIFFERENT reds (with one exception: Shurelia and DarkShurelia are considered the same red) may still post in the same day to subtract 100 more than once in a day.
    -The counter cannot go below 0. (For example, if the count is at 37, and a red posts, the count is now 0, not -63)

    EDIT: Protocol for dealing with trolls and cheaters: (These rules are expected to be enforced on pages after 1236)
    -If someone cheats by detracting from the number or by adding two or more, ignore them. Pretend that post doesn't even exist. (EXAMPLE: '5', '6', '5000', '7')
    -Reds are also held to this rule. If they subtract more than 100, ignore the post! (They are allowed to subtract less than 100 if they're not feeling as evil as usual, however.) Likewise, if they add two or more to the count, ignore the post!
    -If the most recent two posts are the same number (usually because both were posted at nearly the same time), the poster of the latter is allowed to edit the post to be one higher. (EXAMPLE: '22', '23', you post '23'. You may edit it to '24')
    -The above rule DOES NOT APPLY if there are posts past this. (EXAMPLE: '35', '36', '37', '38', '38', '39': It is now too late to edit the later 38. Continue as if it doesn't exist.)
    -If someone double-posts, ignore all but their first post. (EXAMPLE: Poster 1:'50', Poster 2: '51', Poster 2: '52', Poster 2: '53', Poster 2: '54'. Your next post should begin at 52.)

    EDIT 2: Dog's cheat-free check: I plan to go over every single post in this thread to make sure no cheating occurs. Below is a log of my findings. (Times are in Central time, including DST when applicable.)
    6:14 PM, May 10, 2012: Pages 1 through 32 found to be mostly legal. Two numbers were skipped, however, this was in response to two numbers being double-posted; I'm willing to let this slide.
    6:37 PM, May 10, 2012: Pages 33 through 74 found to be entirely legal.
    9:52 PM, May 11, 2012: Pages 75 through 102 found to be entirely legal.
    11:19 PM, May 11, 2012: Pages 103 through 137 found to be entirely legal. Page 138 contains a 10-number skip at the bottom, where the count goes from 633 immediately to 644, which evidently was not noticed, as the next two pages are entirely legal. To compensate, our goal is now 5010.
    11:39 PM, May 11, 2012: Pages 139 through 200 found to be entirely legal.
    9:29 AM, May 12, 2012: Pages 201 through 214 found to be entirely legal.
    4:30 PM, May 12, 2012: Pages 215 through 298 found to be entirely legal. Page 299 contains a 1-number skip, going from 1193 to 1195, and it was unnoticed. Our goal is now 5011.
    11:51 AM, May 14, 2012: SON GOLIN CHEATED. On page 300, Son Golin posted "1098." at 10:48 AM on 9/18/11 (28th red post in the thread. On page 304, he posted "1036." at 11:20 PM of the same day. Both posts subtracted 100.
    12:01 PM, May 14, 2012: Pages 299 through 334 have been scanned. The last post on page 333 is "927", while the first post on page 334 is "929". Our goal is now 5012.
    6:20 PM, July 17, 2012: Pages 335 through 350 have been scanned. The number 576 was skipped on page 349. Our goal is now 5013.
    11:40 AM, July 20, 2012: Pages 351 through 358 have been scanned. Ten numbers were skipped between pages 357 and 358, going from 659 to 670. Our goal is now 5023.
    11:51 AM, July 20, 2012: Pages 359 through 387 have been scanned. The number 654 was skipped on page 387. Our goal is now 5024.
    12:07 PM, July 20, 2012: Pages 388 through 419 have been scanned. Ten numbers were skipped on page 419, going from 769 to 780. Our goal is now 5034.
    12:10 PM, July 20, 2012: Pages 420 through 423 have been scanned. They're all legal. I'm just making a note of "My epic pony" pictures at the top of page 423. Seriously. They're awesome.
    12:41 PM, July 20, 2012: Pages 424 through 500 have been scanned. They're all legal. Also: Son Golin OP. Knocked us alllllllll the way back down to 0.
    1:28 PM, July 20, 2012: Pages 501 through 509 have been scanned. One poster (who I won't name; he's done a great job counting and surely just made a mistake) double-posted, incrementing the count to 92 and 93 in successive posts on page 509. Our goal is now 5035.
    4:20 PM, July 20, 2012: Pages 510 through 520 have been scanned. They're all legal.
    6:32 PM, July 20, 2012: Pages 521 through 540 have been scanned. They're all legal.
    8:56 PM, July 20, 2012: Pages 541 through 588 have been scanned. One poster double-posted AND double-incremented in the same post, effectively skipping two numbers, on page 588. Our goal is now 5037.
    9:09 PM, July 20, 2012: Pages 589 through 600 have been scanned. They're all legal.
    10:51 AM, July 21, 2012: Pages 601 through 636 have been scanned. The number 1020 was skipped on page 636. Our goal is now 5038.
    10:55 AM, July 21, 2012: Pages 637 through 650 have been scanned. They're all legal.
    4:40 PM, July 21, 2012: Pages 651 through 721 have been scanned. They're all legal.
    12:42 AM, July 22, 2012: Pages 721 through 767 have been scanned. The number 2186 was skipped on page 767. Our goal is now 5039.
    1:00 AM, July 22, 2012: Pages 768 through 829 have been scanned. They're all legal.
    11:45 AM, July 22, 2012: Pages 830 through 902 have been scanned. They're all legal.
    11:40 AM, July 23, 2012: Pages 903 through 1000 have been scanned. They're all legal. That said, their legality is iffy...people are returning to the "correct" count as if nobody had done anything wrong, when things DO go wrong. Past page 1236, I will be forced to count this kind of thing as cheating.
    5:14 PM, July 24, 2012: Pages 1001 through 1019 have been scanned. 29 numbers were skipped on page 1019. The count was taken from 2855 to 2885. Our goal is now 5068.
    5:26 PM, July 24, 2012: Pages 1020 through 1051 have been scanned. They're all legal.
