The Last Person To Post Wins thread, general rules:

1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread.
6. Go to 1.

Supplemental rules:
A. Multiple posting (the same poster posting two or more posts in succession) is frowned upon, and no element of a multiple posting may trigger the winning event. Thus the first following non-multiple post will win.
B. However the winning event is defined, it should probably take less than 600 posts and less than two weeks to achieve.
C. Posting of larger pics is discouraged (Modem users do still exist, sometimes people read the forum via their mobile data, and these threads can get quite long.)
D. Don't post any clearly copyrighted pictures.
E. The post rules listed to the left of your post box are all enforced.

So what's the mystery? What the number will be. It's so mysterious, even I don't know right now. All I can say is it will be higher than 300, which will give me time to settle on one of the candidates rattling around in my head. I'm trying to come up with one I'll remember that isn't another steam engine.

Have fun!

Winning. Wednesday's going to be a LONG day. Funeral at 1pm. Work 4:30-midnight...I took an hour off as it'll take 45 mins for me to make it to work from the F.H. If it goes beyond 2pm, I would still have to eat and be in the office by 3:30...not worth pushing it.
