We obviously count more LDs in one night, but I’d say you actually have to wake up in between if you want to count more. So you have one LD, you wake up, you remember the dream, then you fall back asleep and have another LD. Cause sometimes you have a dream, you’re lucid for a while, then you’re not lucid anymore, and then you’re lucid again… but if you don’t wake up in between then I wouldn’t count this as two LD, but as one. Of course there are many different scenes in a dream and sometimes they can change really fast and so it may seem like many different dreams, but I say it only counts as one dream until you wake up. Well that’s just my opinion, I don’t know if you agree.
And about LDs that only count 10 seconds… I really don’t know. I personally wouldn’t count that, but I never have that short LDs anyway. How much can happen in only 10 seconds anyway? I guess it’s up to everyone to decide for themselves what is an LD and what not, cause we can’t see their dreams to decide. I’ve notice people have different opinions about what is LD and what not. I had one dream this month where I wasn’t sure about it and wanted ot hear if others would call that an LD or not, so I wrote it in a topic called ‘Was this LD?’ I didn’t count that dream then, but I saw that most people who replied would count it, if they dreamed that, so…
It is of course easier for the one counting LDs if you have that written in your signature. But I don’t wanna have that. So I suggest that those who don’t count LDs in they signature shouldn’t just write ‘one more for me’ but should also say how much that makes it all together in the following month. For example: ‘one more last night. that’s 5 so far’.
The competition should of course start on 1st of the month. So people in some countries will have that earlier than people in other countries, but so what?
