Sometimes it will involve going back to the beginning, if the beginning is where one's Great Void commences. However, there are those who, having experienced the Beginning of Time, and also the Latter Stages of Time, for one reason or another have a Great Void in the middle of Time. Filling that Great Void by reading it all in that extended segment the One True Thread is certainly a Blitz.
Well, since you're the one writing the 0 Acts of the Clerics, and being the one giving the Official titles of BlitzGirl The Next, I think whatever you decide counts as Blitzing should be canonical.
As per my view, it's not about the post length, or about what the person is doing, or about their distance to the present, or percentage of thread read: it's about intention. If one person does have the intention of reading it all, and it's reading the OTT, then they're blitzing. If they don't have any such intention, then they're just ketchuping (if reading the pages they've missed recently) or mayonnaising (if they jump directly into the present to read stuff just posted and comment on it) or fry saucing (if they both have pages to read that are very old, and do advance them occasionally, but also react and read the present in real time)Spoiler:or blindposting (which is compatible with all the others, but most people tend to keep their ketchup long (even if they lose all their stuff they were replying to now and then...) so by the time they post it, they're already in the present - so blindpost tend to be short, and mayoblindposts tend to be replying to stuff from a long time ago, like this one) or BlitzGirling (making SignPost to be meet in the future in the style of blitzgirl, usually with a brief description of events that happened in the pages you read and its own dose of ketchup, but it can also be done with people not reading it all that just were left behind dozens of NPs recently and are catching up) or treking (with one 'k' - making progress by reading more pages than one is left behind, so one eventually ketchups the present, compatible with all other methods of posting) or BlitzQuesting (which is just reading it all, and can be done in all sort of ways, including just posting "hey, I read it all" as first post - I think all BlitzGirls the Nexts have done it, except for The Slow, limping one...)
Where was I? Oh yeah! I hope that never gets standarized in anyway! they've been used interchangeably anyway!
Falalalala, chupacabra ping pong ball! United we stand, opposed to standards!
know it's Ni ni ni ni... but, that's the standard! So I'm using a nonstandard way to oppose them...
By the way, has tman2nd appeared on a Acts Of The Clerics yet? I think he has read it all!
*goes back to treking*
I don't know that there is such a thing as just ketchuping. Sure, it is easier than blitzing, but it does take a pretty serious
