    True. I wasn't sure about this. The post on number 1384 is confusing.
    So let's continue...

    1390

    Guys what the hell you had one job.

    This is obviously the number of dots representing what number it is. E.g. • = 1, ••• = 3, •••••••• = 8 and ••••• is 5.
    But of course, I made it too complex, leading to Jake repeating my number:
    Which then threw I_am_the_storm off track to do the logical thing: count one more.
    But then Jake found the actual page number, which threw the number even further out of whack.
    Turns out, we're actually using the number that people use in order, taking into account skips and misjudgements due to human imperfection. We ruled out this in an argument a couple of pages ago, where we agreed to use the number we counted to stick with the goal of the thread "To count to one million".

    So, ignoring the number of posts, the Number should be 1386, but now we have to call a vote to work out this nonsense. Fan-tastic.

    Shelock Holmes! Where are you?

    I see your point. But voting may lead to more and more posts, totaly covering the actual number. There is no need to make it more complicated than it is. The whole game, numbers from members was same as their number of post in this thread. They just posted number by one number higher than previous poster. Clear as sky on the Sunday morning...
    Mine is currently 1392, right? So... number from next poster should be 1393.
    But you, Omicron, are right. Your opinion is correct.

    I'll say this... We can ask moderators | Create a poll, and vote there | Create another thread, and discuss this manner | Next poster just post number 1393 and continue.

    Actually, we did this last time. Let's just keep both numbers until we reach a conclusion. My personal opinion is that we go with the number we counter with (1386) so that we're actually "playing the game", rather than just counting post numbers. We came to the same verdict last time, and going with the total number of posts both overrules the last vote we did and defeats the miniscule purpose of the game.

    1386 - 1393

    Allright, then... Sounds good.
    (I don't think this will be a solution. We must find a way out of this, because we cannot post both numbers at the same time)

    1387 - 1394

    1391 - 1399

    if my input means anything, I think we should stick with 1391, since moving ahead feels like cheating to me lmao
