You Must Decide Whether to Say Duck

Postby Pied typer » Thu Oct 27, 2016 11:06 pm UTC

This is like the You Must Not Say Duck thread, but with arbitrary scoring rules added!

  • If you don't say duck, you receive 4 points for every post in the current "not saying duck" streak, including your own post.
  • If you do say duck, you get points proportional to the square of the "not saying duck" streak that you broke. Specifically, 1 point/post2.
  • No double posting.

You still get points for breaking the streak, though.

Of course, with your current avatar it's hard to tell whether it's feathers or a bird suit.

As soon as someone who may or may not be chridd decides to make a "Decide Whether to Say Duck" leaderboard. Presumably.

It is a good idea to say the word if and only if the current streak is longer than 3 posts.

But you didn't say the word, meaning that you technically decided to not say the word.
