A Game of Commitment

Postby The Snide Sniper » Thu Jan 04, 2018 12:22 am UTC

Only your first post each day is counted. Each post increases your streak by 1, unless you didn't post yesterday, in which case it resets your streak to 0. Each post scores 1 point times your current streak divided by the number of posts since your last post plus 2.

Some clarifications:
  • Each player has their own streak independently of everybody else.
  • The first post in a streak does not score points, because the streak is 0.
  • For the purposes of this game, a "day" starts at 12:00 AM UTC.
  • Each player has their own "first post each day", and later posts from that player do not affect their score or anybody else's scores.
Remember to come back every day, especially when nobody else does!

And now a short role-play. I'm from Slytherin House. I have a pet snake named... Diana? Diana hisses and flicks her tail prettily and I wave my feminine wand around. <3 And lie and cheat and flirt and manipulate people a lot. And something-something Death Eaters. Ha ha the quote ate my words. How... did that post twice?

3109/420 = 7.40238095...

Edit: Okay, I've decimalised the score... Still most people aren't posting theirs at all :P
