    Don't make a double!
    Or you're in trouble!
    To discuss our lives at a leisurely pace
    Until the final frantic race!
    To disgorge our GIF folders on one page!
    To avoid the admins' fitful rage!

    Jessie!
    James!

    Last Post moves on at the speed of light!
    Either leave this thread or join the fight!
    Meowth isn't really relevant so I dropped his line. Welcome to the twelfth instalment of UKofE's largest thread series, hosted by none other than yours truly, Cuttleshock! The rules remain the same as usual, but I've opted to include a manual of style for those not in the know and for quick reference. Please do debate these rules below. I feel they'll help avoid any trouble similar to that encountered at the end of the previous thread.
    For anybody who doesn't know, LPW stands for 'Last Post Wins'. The object of the forum game is just that - we post until we reach the end of the thread, and whoever gets the decisive post emerges victorious and makes the next LPW. In addition, some people claim minor victories by catching posts numbered with a multiple of 1000.

    A few potential points of contention are below, and there are guidelines as opposed to hard-and-fast rules. Try to stick to them, still!
    1. Don't double-post - that is, make two posts without anyone else posting inbetween. It's unseemly and simple just to edit the previous post to add anything else you want to say.
    2. Deleting posts should ideally only be done when we're not exceptionally close to a multiple of 1000, as it really confuses matters. In addition, unless you have any reason to, don't delete anything more than 1000 posts (50 pages) old, as it messes with the records of who's received thousandth posts.
    3. If there's any contention as to who received a thousandth or final post, general consensus usually rules over. In the previous thread, we observed veteran poster and owner of the thread Killergoose making an overruling decision at the end, and I think that, in general, the OP's decisions should have weight if they're accepted by a large majority.
    4. In general, follow forum rules! Apart from those pertaining to pointless posts and image spam (do those even exist?). That's what we're all about.
    5. Please don't be jerks to each other ♥
    And now, without further ado, I open Last Post Wins Twelve! Try not to get killed out there. The person who receives Post #19,000 wins the thread.

    Congrats Cuttleshock!

    Alright: let's deal with the elephant in the room first: deleting posts at the time of the last post.

    I don't know if there's anyway we can find a safeguard for this or a way we can just simply find out who got the first x-thousandth post with perfect reliability but I'm open for ideas.

    Anyway have some Cena:

    We find ourselves in a familiar spot, don't we?
    The start of a new thread has happened so much that it seems like a non-event.
    We expect it rather than enjoy it, or embrace it.
    The posts on this magical thread are a privilege not a right.

    Oh, what a privilege it's been!
    Names and members may come and go
    But somehow the feeling remains the same.
    Memories feel like a moment away and an eternity at the same time.

    Think about it, the best things in life are in twelves.
    The are 12 players on a basketball team.
    12 donuts fit perfectly into a box.
    12 roses are perfect for a bride.
    Everything is cheaper by the dozen.

    So celebrate, members of Last Post Wins!
    To 12 threads onwards and a thousand more!

    I'm still not wholly sure about the title. That's subject to change. Cycling through the entire Pokédex will be a bit much, though, so I'll see.

    Anyway,

    *Cenda descends upon the thread with 2,000 dragons*
    Different Pokémon versions, working backwards from Black 2 since you've already started with that one?

    And back to Opera. Ahh... it's laggy and glitchy and undo history only keeps a single step, but it's my UKofE home.
    I could do something in a set of 19, changing after every thousand... games just about fit in that, too. But I don't particularly want to work backwards.

    I'll try not to.
    *persistently avoids Gen 1*

    I'll give it some thought. It may even stay the same as this present title is quite aesthetically pleasing; we'll seeeee.

    Ugh, to be honest, that controversy at the end has kind of taken its toll on me.
    I expected to have a relaxing end and a clear obvious winner but I pretty much got the opposite.

    I'll still be around but just need to take a break for a little while.

    A belated congrats to Cuttles. Nice thread title, too.

    Thank youuu.
    I'm a little tired out after the end as well... hope you recover soon, KG. I'll be off doing something now as well.

    He hates the original 151, and frowns upon nostalgia.

    The first opinion is fine, but the second is intolerable. I refuse to listen to a 16-year-old say anything about nostalgia. That's like asking a pediatrician about Alzheimer's. It makes no sense. It makes him almost as bad as Killergoose.
