Thread Necromancy: Mexican Standoff Edition!

Postby Pied typer » Wed Nov 02, 2016 2:13 am UTC

Following in the vision of Thread Necromancy Slowmode, and the example taken from You Must Decide Whether to Say Duck, I give you: The Thread That (probably) Will Die Regularly!

Instead of the Thread Necromancy Game, where time is gained linearly, I present a simple solution: gain time quadratically.

The score gained from a post is the time (in minutes) from the last post, squared. If you wait a little longer, you'll get a ton more points.

And remember: if you post once, you'll have to wait for someone else to take a (possibly large) reward before you. Have fun!

Now, quietly forget about this…
