Double Post

Postby WarDaft » Mon May 05, 2014 5:31 pm UTC

The goal is to wait as long as possible between double posting. Your score gain is the number of elapsed minutes squared, but only if no one posted in between.

A triple post is counted as two intervals, each is squared separately.

Hah, a thread where double posting is hard. I won't even try to score, but blocking other players looks fun.

Yes. But when there's a three-hour-gap with opportunities for scoring masses of points, no-one takes the opportunity.

Unfortunately for me, I had already double posted.
If not I certainly would have claimed that interval, giving me a 14400 point lead.

Don't triple posts count as two double posts?

Maybe. The OP is unclear about triple posts.
