Double post: Pagetopping version

Postby marionic » Thu Nov 17, 2016 8:42 pm UTC

Here are the rules!

A user gets points for a post only if it is the first post of the page and the previous post was by the same user.

The number of points is determined by t^2+2, where t is the number of minutes since the previous post.

To discourage filling up a page with double posts just to become a page topper, every post after a post by the same user reduces that user's score by 1 point for each preceding post in the chain. You do not lose any points if an hour or more has passed since the previous post.

Example:
User A posts. (no score change)
User B posts. (no score change)
User B posts. (user B loses 1 point for double posting)
User B posts. (user B loses 2 more points for triple posting)
User B posts on a new page 2 minutes later. (user B gains 6 points from the pagetopping post being after another post by user B but loses 3 for quadruple posting)
User A posts. (no score change)
User B posts. (no score change)
User B posts an hour later. (no score change)

This is a pagetopper but not a double post, so I get no points on this page.

Maybe that just means your idea wasn't very good. :P

User A posts.

User A posts an hour later — doesn't lose any points.

Three it is. I didn't consider that, but that does match my wording.

Remind me to fix that later, then. By the way, everyone has 0 points.

Fixed, but for some reason uploading seems to be slow/not working the past small amount of time less than a day. (Edit: It's uploaded.)

Also, order of ties depends on who posted most recently.
