What's the purpose of the 'Count to a 10000 Thread's? watch

    The answer may be just as simple as 'recreation', however they do output a 'sad and dead' image of TSR users, to onlookers. Ofc this quite visibly, doesn't affect the participants (which is great) and calls into question the purposes and productivity levels of other long-running threads such as the MHoC - Does someone disagree with me and actually consider these threads to be worthwhile?

    NB: I'm not bashing anyone's choice of recreation, just exploring them as to how they stimulate participants!

    Thanks

    Just another thing people do to fill the void until they die and become the void. I reckon.

    Originally it was in competition with another forum outside of TSR.:yep:

    Your point about purpose relates to the purpose about TSR in general. It's both for helping students, and giving them an opportunity to unwind online. That's why we have a range of sections. (speaking from my opinion only)

    For me it's about defining purposefulness in terms of productivity, I use the site to seek academic advice, hence my name, and unwind myself by engaging in dialogue on current affairs.

    I couldn't give a shiny shite about productivity on a website, to be honest.

    And other people unwind differently to that.

    Affirmative. What’s the purpose in anything, actually? We make our own purposes so activities feel relevant and rewarding.

    Still fail to see how the count to 6 million threads are relevant or rewarding though

    Guess so...if people actually cared about that:laugh: I only care about reps cause it’s an addiction. Once I get to the max gem count, 12, then I might actually leave

    Hmm, interesting. These threads may be philosophically acceptable for atheists, given that they believe life lacks any preordained purpose that should be followed, hence everything is as meaningless as anything. Any religious 'Counting' partakers, present to utterly destroy my hypothesis?
