Task 9 Results

You never submitted anything officially (remember, even if I never mention it, you need to make a bolded line clearly saying what you submit) so I can’t give you any money either.


The third execution quiz will be posted on March 12, 4:00 PM (GMT +2). The quiz’s results will be posted on March 15, 4:00 PM (GMT +2) or earlier if I receive all of your submissions. Task 10 will go up on Saturday, because I have V/LA on Friday.

If you’re going to get pedantic, Bluji:
a) there is no rule anywhere in this thread that states “you need to make a bolded line clearly saying what you submit for every task” so I fail to see how we could be expected to remember this
b) Maist’s post was pretty clear (unless you’re especially dense) that the object we were looking for was the post itself
c) Maist’s post also contains plenty of bolded text

What would we have posted in bold anyways?

Dunno. Maybe This is the thing wat we was looking for

What makes you think this task is an exception to the rule of bolded official submissions if I don’t mention it specifically AND if it had been used in every single previous task with in-thread submissions? Will you post your execution quiz answers in thread if I don’t mention about PMing them to me? (and to be precise, I never mentioned anywhere in the official rules on page one you have to PM me your quiz answers, so if one was an asshole and a game-ruining jerk, one could post their answers in thread, but one won’t, because none of you is a game-breaking jerk)

So, my decision was you never made an official submission and it stays like that. Any more whining about it, and I will take $10,000 from the pot.

Also, due to my current rage, the quiz will be posted tomorrow, same time as it should’ve been posted today.

K, so we can’t whine. Can we moan? What about whinging? Surely I can gripe about it?

Don’t tempt me, Bluji… Don’t tempt me.

I’m sorry, I had to edit question number 1. ALL MISTAKES ON THE QUIZ ARE FULLY ON MY FAULT, AS WELL AS ALL DECISIONS OF WHETHER TO GIVE OR NOT GIVE YOU MONEY ARE ON ME. NO MISTAKES OR MONEY-GIVING IS DONE ON THE MOLE’S PURPOSES, SINCE I MAKE THE DECISIONS. I TRY TO MAKE THE GAME EQUAL FOR EVERYONE.

You are the mole’s third victim. Task 10 goes up tomorrow. Do you all still have interest in the game?

 
Flag Post

Whoa. I didn’t get eliminated. It sorta took away the suspense, and I hope that FGF doesn’t burst into tears ‘mourning’ our fellow Deebz.
I hope he’s okay though. ;_;



Heyyeahsure I’m interested.

Round 4, Task 10: The Return of the Rule Game

The premise of the game is simple: One player starts by posting a rule in the thread that the other players must follow. The other players must then post rules that add on to the first rule by creating additional restrictions on future rules.

Meta-rules to always be followed:
1. Each rule must follow every previous rule and the rule itself.
2. Each rule (except for the last rule) must be a posting restriction for at least one future rule.
3. You must post all previous rules in addition to the new rule.
4. No rule may modify the rule number.
5. No rule may make the rules difficult to read.
6. No rule may forbid the posting of further rules.
7. The words “Rule X:” shall be ignored when deciding if a rule follows a previous rule (or itself).

This task is successfully completed when every player has posted one rule without breaking any previous rules. However, note that meta-rule 2 may force the creation of additional rules (for example, if Rule 7 creates a restriction that only applied to odd-numbered rules, then a Rule 9 must be used.) If that happens, any player may post the additional rule(s), but only after every player has posted one rule.

Pot money for the task will be as follows: $1,000 for the first posted rule, $2,000 for the second posted rule, $3,000 for the third posted rule and so on until $7,000 from the last rule. And as an addition, a completed set of rules will give you $4,000 bonus, to make the total maximum pot after this task $450,000.

Here is a sample game:

Rule 1: All rules must contain the letter “b”.
Rule 2: All even-numbered rules must mention a game on Kongregate, like Pel.
Rule 3: All rules must not contain the seventh letter of the alphabet.
Rule 4: No rule may be composed of more than 10 words.

Rule 4 breaks rule 2, so the task would end here with only $6,000 being placed into the pot.

The deadline for this task is March 24 @ 2:00 PM GMT+2.
