Count to a million


CTAM after 1 million  

170 users have voted

  1. 1. What should happen after 1 million is reached?

    • Start over at 1
    • Keep counting to infinity (count to the next million(s))
    • Count back down to 1 (then back up)
    • Other (pm or mention if you'd like)

I'm surprised this forum doesn't yet have a count to a million game. The forum I've used to visit quite often is up to 74000ish, and that was about five years ago.These first few posts you make will be history when we reach a million! Make them worthy.


We're now on Facebook!

One thing to know:


-If you are for any reason unable to access the forums again, make an account on DeviantArt, or a website where you could talk to a counter so you don't become unreachable. ;). My DeviantArt name is WinginWolf.

-Speed-posting is fine.

-The number must appear in the post or if posting pictures, the picture must have something that represents the number (i.e., three fingers to represent a 3 is fine) or if the name of something in the picture represents that number. Otherwise, the url of the image must be posted in addition.

The last time I logged the speed (December), it was also at 1000 posts per 2-3 days. I do feel like we're slightly slowing down though.


Also, there is no 20 character limit in this forum, so posting the number is just fine. It's a game forum; the post count won't increase, so you can be as random and blunt as you'd like!


One rule I should mention: During times of high activity, it is very likely you will be ninja'd and will have to go through the frustration of editing your post to the correct number. If you are on mobile, this becomes even more frustrating because you might "fat-finger" a lot and have to keep backspacing until you hit the right numbers, not to mention folks before you may have the incorrect number and you can't see the post # to tell you where you are. There fore, you are not required to edit your post if you are within 10 numbers, plus or minus of the correct number (don't be posting the incorrect number on purpose though : B). I guess it should be 10 numbers below the actual since most people probably won't anticipate a ninja. I say 10 and not 5 because some people have long posts sometimes. And to be honest, even if your number is more than 10 numbers off, I wouldn't care xD. The key is to try to post the right number!


Here are some milestones reached in the count to a million game throughout the years months: (actually it’s been years now :wacko: . As of 2019 :P

Unfortunalty, the typical ninjas hit me double and now I standing here. I'm sorry, Sparkley*Hug* Still, as a honor:




Thank you for the good time SparklingSwirls and of course all other counters here, without you all, we wouldn't be here right now.

@, This Post goes out to Rising Shine! Sorry you couldn't be here for this, but you deserve to be mentioned anyway, this probably wouldn't be possible without you!


Also, mention to @,

I'd like to dedicate this post to @JonasDarkmane and @Pucksterv


May they have a very happy future together.


If you think there are any more milestones of importance, feel free to message me!

Gonna go ahead and add this milestone too (surprised I didn’t have it logged). We’ve been at 400K for a while... over 3 years! It’s been our slowest 100K... not so many regulars like before.

Oh, and I think I should quote these to humor you:

This game can indeed, get very boring. It's probably the boring-est (lol) of them all in this sub forum! It's more of a "I have nothing else to do, let me just post a number and contribute to a game without having to think lol".


This is a game of patience, laziness, and collective procrastination.

The ultimate measure of a counter is not when he counts in moments of comfort and convenience, but when he counts at times of challenge and controversy.

This game is also bomb proof and will not be responsible for wasted bombs.


Here is the documented, first partial palindrome (originally a semi-palindrome, but renamed 10 posts later):

Semi palindrome!!

5414! Is that a partial palindrome I spy? Why yes, yes it is.




You may be asking what on earth is a partial palindrome, or any palindrome in general (well you wouldn't ask the latter to me because that's what Google is for!). WEll, here is a list of the many types of palindromes you may encounter while counting (this is "Wolfian Nomenclature"):




Type I Palindrome (or simply, "palindrome"):

Examples: 12321, 121, 345543, 111 etc.


Type II Palindrome:

Ex: 1212, 123123 (we have yet to get to six digits!), 121212

Basically, if you can split the number in the middle or into equal chunks, each separated number should be identical! So 1212 you would split like 12|12, or 123|123, etc.


Rotational Palindrome (also Type III):

69, 619, 2005, 6119

If you can rotate the number 180 degrees (or a "pi" if you prefer radians), you should observe the same number (the 2 ressembles a 5 upside down). The 1 can be treated as a straight line which is symmetrical. 6006 and similar numbers are not rotational (which is 9009 when inverted).


Partial Palindrome:

1232, 48989, 26009, 39097, 68089 (this is a rotational palindrome also!)

If the number has any palindrome inside, then it is a partial palindrome.


Repeating Palindrome:


This is a regular palindrome, but if you treat it as a partial, it has a type 1 and type 2. The digits oscillate between 2 numbers.




And this here is Seyeth's nomenclature:

I also like to say "hrmm" a lot.




Count away!!


Oh. And 1 . Can't believe there was never a 1 until now :wacko: (I think the date of the 1 was 2016-2017, to give you an idea how long we went without a 1 :huh: ).

1 000 000


1,000,000/ 100 = 10,000

√10,000 = 100

100/ 5 = 20

20 = My post number

You posted one ahead of me, Therefore your post is actually 19.
