I've locked the thread and will be posting an explanation. Some of the reasons are in various previous threads like this, so it will take a little bit of time.
There has been discussion in the past about count threads such as this because previously they have been used as farming post count/spam for post count threads. In fact, the previouscount to Christmas thread had more than 35 pages of spamming.
Original message details are unavailable.
quote edited to show only the spam wave information that happened on the first Count to 200 before Christmas thread
first wave of spamming for post count: page 151 and ends on page 160 second wave: page 162 until 190
Please do not continue to do this. In other words, please do not recreate this thread. Thanks!
Even participants on such holiday count to threads acknowledge the issue of farming post count. The below quote is taken from the thread I quote above. Original message details are unavailable. Okay. Let's get some post count then. 21
Starting a thread about Christmas so many months before the actual event seems to contribute to farming post count (though I don't know why - it is just what I have seen.) I would suggest creating this thread much closer to the actual event and using a much lower, realistic number goal.
