$5 Dollars!

Postby Klayman » Sun Aug 22, 2010 12:42 am UTC

This is a sociology experiment, sort of.

You can win $5.

Just be the 2023rd 112th poster in this thread and I will send you $5 through Paypal.

There are, of course, some rules. For a post to win, that post must be relevant to the topic or current conversation. Any blank post, randomly generated post, or post that contains under 4 English words will be discounted if it is the 2023rd 112th post, and the experiment will restart.

Void where prohibited, or where there are better things to do.

Why am I doing this you may ask. Well, I think it would be really funny. I found five dollars recently, and yea this whole idea just got pieced together.

If the post has to be on topic to the current conversation, wouldn't it make sense to start a conversation to be on topic to?

The "current conversation" thing is just to prevent someone from making a spambot that spits out random english words.

Please explain these "wonderful" t-shirts. I mean, a shirt is a shirt is a shirt in my book. What about these shirts make them so "wonderful"?

Just to be unambiguous, the OP counts as the first poster, right? Because the post count that gets displayed on a thread is the number of replies.

I guess he wants the 2023rd reply - but I could be wrong.

So basically we're just talking about anything?

not bad but a shame that it's not real money. Some people on there are just so stupid!

klayman joined yesterday. How do I know that (s)he'll still be around when we hit 2023 posts? Lots of newbies just make a couple posts and then get bored and leave.

I definitely will be around. I've lurked the forums for awhile, and I wanted to try this concept somewhere. XKCD forums seemed like the only place it would work.

There does seem to be a little problem I didn't think of though. There isn't much incentive to make a post that isn't the 2023rd post. I might lower the number to like 142.

I am looking for the person who makes the 2023rd POST not reply. Right now this is REPLY #20, but it is POST #21.


EDIT: The new official number is #112. Whoever makes the 112th POST gets $5.

well if nobody posts we'll never get to 2023 posts, and as we get nearer, there'll be loads of people posting at the same time to try to get 2023.

come on people, post, post, post.

maybe the OP could randomly step in and offer spot prizes of $1 to like the fifth post after the spot prize offer, or something, just to get some interest in the intervening time.

Ok, so the official post thing is getting changed to post #112. The person who makes the #112th post gets $5. This should happen a lot quicker, so I can prove that I will actually give out the money :P. Then maybe afterwards I'll start another in the 2000s. I am going to update the first post now.

This is post #27.

post as often as possible - I take it we're not allowed to double post then, so I need to make sure I'm posting as the same odd/even ness as the required post.

Double posting is allowed, assuming it isnt against the rules of the forum. I haven't checked.

Just checked, it is against the general forum rules, so I guess I will make it illegal in this game too.
