I'm not THAT new, but I hadn't heard about the clap thing before.

Honest question: If I clap at all, then I should do it 50 times? Is that correct? If it is, why are there options for 1-50 claps? Wouldn't 50 claps be the same as 1 clap, if everyone's clapping 50 times?

Perhaps I don't understand the clap function at all. Enlighten me, please!
