Title: 200k = 100 - Forum Giveaway!
Post by: Leon on 25 April 2016, 04:45:40 PM
(http://www.pendraken.co.uk/ImageBin/200kGiveaway.jpg)

We had a similar competition when we hit 100,000 posts on the Forum, so as we approach our 200,000th post it's time for another giveaway!  The rules are simple, whoever can guess the day and hour of our 200,000th post will win a massive 100 worth of Pendraken goodies!  Simply state the day and hour you think we will hit this milestone, for example 7th May 19:00 and we'll see who can get the closest!  In addition, we'll give a smaller 10 prize to the two people either side of the winner.

The Forum has continued to grow every year thanks to you lot so it's nice to give something back.  

So, the rules are:

- You must be a Forum member to take part - Easy enough...

- You must have AT LEAST 25 posts to your name - If you're new to the forum, just join in some of the discussions, or post up some WIP pictures and batreps.

- Guesses should be to THE NEAREST HOUR please - For example, 7th May, 19:00.  If the 200,000th post is made at any point between 18:31pm and 19:29pm, then you're the winner, and so on.  All times are assumed to be GMT.

- The competition will close to entries when we reach 199,500 posts - So no waiting until the last minute to enter your guess!

- No cheating to bump the post count closer to your entry! - Make sure all your posts are contributing to a thread/discussion/Totty.  Anyone making one word posts purely designed to bump the count will have their posts deleted.  Remember that this is a bit of fun, so let's keep it that way.

Let us know if there are any questions on that lot.

And to help you along with your guesses, the post count curently stands at 197191.  Over the past 3 months we've had:

Jan - 3353 posts.
Feb - 3654 posts.
Mar - 3672 posts.


.. and then 2567 currently in April.

So, get your calculators out, stick a pin in the calendar and post up your guesses!

Best of luck to everyone.

 :-\ thinks on this point !!
So if this is correct, if the 200,000th post is made at 30 minutes past the hour we don't have a winner....   18:31 - 19:29   , 19:31 - 20:29     did you forget the xx:30 ??

18:31 and 1 second would be a 19:00 winner, running through until 19:29 and 59 seconds.  If we somehow manage to have the 200,000th post at exactly 19:30 and 0 seconds then we'll figure something out.

 :D

So, as it doesn't state 'one guess per member', can I post 672 individual guesses, covering each of the 24 hours in a day x 7 days in a week x 4 weeks in a month?

Oh, and I'll start doing all of that when the forum post count reaches 199, 000 total posts.  :d

And I'm no good at maths, so if that ain't right ... tough!  :P ;)

No... It does say "Simply state the day and hour you think we will hit this milestone", so singular and not the plural "...days and hours...".

So there...!

 :P

AAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!! why is not minibits, Leon your robbing me blind, to your poor father!!!!! >:(

Because this is the Pendraken Forum!  Don't worry, I'll make sure you get a room with a view in the nursing home...!

Don't tell him... ;)

And a welcome to Mr Treeman from me too.

You'll find a lot of us are barking, fellah, but the Pendraken range offers a lot of opportunities to branch out, or you can stay rooted in one period and leaf the others alone. Ash anyone about the other periods, or look at some of the painting talent on display and you will pine for more. You could sycamore sensible answer, but I'm furly sure that I speak for the rest of the us (the dead wood in the Pendraken chipper).

Oakay, I'm done with tree puns now. You'll thank me later for getting them out the way in one fell swoop.

Do some rapid posting, PB; you need 25 posts to qualify, but that's easier than it sounds - just spam every topic with demands for centurions, for example.

So with the betting now closed is derivative action possible? For example: I now calculate Shedman as the winner. I offering 10 for a 25% share of his win - when he wins I get 25 of his order - in the unlikely event he losses - I would pay him 10!   All sorts of possibilities exist.

I'm not very good at maths either. I could help you with this particular one however. At this moment there needs to be 259 more posts by 1830 today for me to win. I am willing to sell you a 100% share of my winnings for - oh - I don't know - 5p? (Payable only should I lose)  You need to act quickly however!  :D

It's going to be interesting to see if that block of guesses on the 19th were a bit early, leaving it between those 3 members on the 20th.

I'll get the Centurion mould out in case it carries over onto the 21st...   ;)

Well, just get ready, and if you pass midnight on the 20th, just cast 100£ worth of them.

edit:   

Now a serious question, if it happens on the 21st, but the last entry on the 20th was closer than the first entry on the 21st, who gets the prize? The one who entered 21st? Since he got the date right, or the one on the 20th, because his time was closer? :/

Closest to the time, so if it's 01:05 on the 21st, 23:00 on the 20th is closer than 06:00 on the 21st.

Now seriously, posting did drop significantly the last few days. I had kept an eye on the counter, and two weeks ago we had about 150 posts a day(especially in the weekend). I based my guess on that number and calculated to reach 200000 the 17th.

But the last few days we had gone down with sometimes 60-70 a day.

Do I get anything for being the 200,000 post??? :)

My gratitude  ;)

Ta Matt - I think I might get 'promoted' to the judging panel, if Dave lets Leon run a 300k posts competition!

Had to do some work this morning (well attend meetings, which count as work, even if no work is done by many people sat in the same room) - so could only log back in just now to see there had been a flurry of activity.

It was getting very close there, another half an hour and it would have shifted to Shedman!  As a consolation though, Shedman wins 10 as a runner-up prize, as does Kodiakblair.  We'll contact all of you shortly about claiming your prize.

It did get very close. I had kind of expected it to hit 200k overnight - but it was very quiet last night.
