The "Thread Necromancy" Game

Postby keozen » Tue Sep 04, 2007 4:05 pm UTC

Ok, semi complicated rules.

You win at this game by collecting time, the time you collect is the time from when the last poster posted to the time you post.

For instance, say I posted this thread 2 days ago exactly and I now posted again, i then gain 48 hours!

So, the longer you leave the thread before you perform "Thread Necromancy" on it the more points/hours you score, however there is also more chance someone else will steal those hours for themselves. mwa ha ha!

Everyone starts with 0 hours 0 minutes, GO! (or wait a while then go ;) )

The Two Rules:

- No double posts
- If the thread is locked time inside the game is frozen (who mods the mods? In my game I do)

The one polite suggestion:

- When you post post your current total in the format of xx:yy (x=hours y=minutes)

Additional Rule:
Anyone who deletes posts of your own or others to artificially inflate their score in any way shape or form automatically loses all their points, starting back at 0:00 and may be called a "Cheating Douche" by other players.
This is in enforcement from 25th June 2010 10:08 GMT forwards and is not retroactive before this time (it closes a loop hole where mods had an unfair advantage now that regular users can no longer delete their own posts).

but now im winning muhahahaha, by keeping this thread alive Im stopping all points
Why put off till today what you could just as easily get done tomorrow?

I can mathematically prove that 1 equals 0!.

Parts a-x in my plan weren't that important anyways.

Not too sure what I get (again), I keep forgetting to check the time before starting a reply.

EDIT: ...5 minutes. Bringing my total to 7.

Rodan, if only you'd waited for 3 minutes...

Rodan, I don't suck...
Okay, I do suck.
But I have a good excuse!
I got on the computer only when my brother was finished not understanding how it works, and playing daft games and posting in forum/sets of fora. And as I got to forum games, you posted, stealing two hours that were rightfully mine.

Anyway, I take 4 minutes, taking my total to 11
(Take that, everyone with less than 11)

I just don't have time to sit hawking over this topic... I'm generally only on the computer for a coupla hours in the evenings.
So I'll probably not post again, unless I can gain about 10 hours or something.

(oh, and total = 14 minutes)

Y'all realize that someone on the other side of the world, a person on when most others aren't could easily steal as much time as possible?

...Oh shit, I gave myself away.

POST CANCEL ACTION!!!

That doesn't work, need some other exclamation...

Edit: This is fun, think it's time to play... (1 min) And fractions are rounded down to prevent spamming, right? Other than the unholy powers of the mods as well.
