Do you know how to chat in room 'Carnage'? If so, you may be able to w (in Contests)


SNK3R January 4 2007 11:03 PM EST

Interested by the title? Read on.

The name of the game is simple:

My program that listens for someone saying "the" magic phrase has started the second this thread has been made. [If you don't know what I'm talking about see the Wiki page for more information.] All you have to do is talk and hope that you're the one that gets it. The reward is a completely free 1.87M MPR character, Conundrum. Transfers will be paid by me so you have nothing to worry about but winning! Just think what you could do once Jon starts the free re-training, too!

Also, as of now, there are no hints that will be given out. As time progresses hints may be given out, but it's not guaranteed! The regular rules of no spamming should be enforced by all Chat OPs so that flooding the room doesn't happen.

A quite generous donation by Ranger (the real one that is currently named Popsicle Man) of $1,000,000 has been made, so thank him while you're playing this game because it wouldn't have been possible without him!

Without further adieu, good luck, and let the game begin!

so its a phrase and not just a word?

Flamey January 5 2007 2:27 AM EST

a phrase can be one word. It's CB related, so not that many "phrases" anyway.

TH3 C0113CT0R January 5 2007 6:41 AM EST

So let me get this straight, all we have to do it talk in this thread and an app. is "reading it" looking for a phrase in our text.??

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] January 5 2007 6:43 AM EST


No, you have to talk in Carnage. "Do you know how to chat in room 'Carnage'?" ;)

TH3 C0113CT0R January 5 2007 6:44 AM EST

nvm, its in chat, guess i should read a little closer.

when does it start

Brakke Bres [Ow man] January 5 2007 8:00 AM EST

My program that listens for someone saying "the" magic phrase has started the second this thread has been made.

AdminG Beee January 5 2007 9:54 AM EST

Just as well this is a "chat" contest and not one based on reading comprehension.

Nice contest SNK3R. One of my favourites :)

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] January 5 2007 10:11 AM EST

Yeah, it's great how many competitions there are for chat these days. The only decent contest some of us can enter is Barzoo's botcheck contest and even then people in American timezones get to benefit.
Some of us just end up with the shortest straw available I suppose :)

SNK3R January 5 2007 11:30 AM EST

Q:so its a phrase and not just a word?

A: It's a phrase.

Q:when does it start

A: It started the second this thread was created, so it's been going on roughly 12.5 hours already.

Q:a phrase can be one word. It's CB related, so not that many "phrases" anyway.

A: I have not said whether it is CB-related or not. That's up to you to find out. :)

[P]Mitt January 5 2007 11:50 AM EST

You're not leaving us are you SNK?

QBOddBird January 5 2007 12:02 PM EST

Grrr. I asked that too Mitt, he thinks he's so mysterious and won't answer me >.>

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 5 2007 12:34 PM EST

SNK3R never really leaves...

SNK3R January 6 2007 8:31 PM EST

<Verifex> oh that contest is still on huh
<Verifex> sweet

This is your hint of "Nobody has won yet." :)

NoFear January 6 2007 10:45 PM EST

you type /join Carnage in the chat room.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 7 2007 12:36 AM EST

=> SNK3R is it more than one word long
SNK3R Yes.

Godpanda January 7 2007 2:56 PM EST

=> SNK3R Is it CB related?
<SNK3R> No.



Why am I nice? Why is Novice nice? My question is, will the rest of you be nice lol?

Seriously, I expect you all to be kind lol!

QBRanger January 7 2007 3:30 PM EST

SNK,

If no one wins by the time then end of free untraining occurs, can you unlearn everything?

(0.0) January 7 2007 5:03 PM EST

if its not CB related how are we going to guess it

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] January 7 2007 7:12 PM EST

serial, you aren't meant to be desperately trying to guess it, SNK does these contests to encourage people to chat.
The contest is here to force people to discuss topics partially in hope that one of them will trigger the program, this results in a much more sociable chatroom.
This is not to promote spam from people spouting random phrases relating to CB or anything specific in hope of winning.
I'm pretty sure SNK has also made it at least common to a reasonable extent so that someone has a good chance of winning it.

SNK3R January 8 2007 12:31 PM EST

Q: If no one wins by the time then end of free untraining occurs, can you unlearn everything?

A: Yes.

Adminedyit January 8 2007 3:32 PM EST

=> SNK3R does it pertain to music? No.

Hyrule Castle January 8 2007 4:55 PM EST

what is this 20 questions... play the game already!

Synge [Memento Mori] January 9 2007 10:06 PM EST

Here is the answer that I got:

=> SNK3R Is the phrase 3 words long?
<SNK3R> No.

kevinLeong January 10 2007 3:13 AM EST

Is the statement PG? Because if it isn't I'm definitely never going to win it, even by accident.

-Raptor- January 10 2007 10:47 PM EST

I asked SNK3R if the phrase was a cliche.
His response : No.

Hope this helps everyone. Goodluck. ^_^

SNK3R January 12 2007 12:46 PM EST

Everything has been untrained, so whoever wins will get (essentially) a very nice, fresh start with training 1.87M MPR on whatever they want.

Oh, and if I still need to say it, the contest is still going. :)

(P.S. One hint has been given out that hasn't been posted. You could ask around, though.)

QBRanger January 12 2007 5:23 PM EST

I heard last night people chatting about the newest hint.

As far as I could remember it was this:

Is the phrase 3 or more words?

Answer: No

-Raptor- January 12 2007 7:14 PM EST

I asked SNK3R if the phrase was 2 words long.
His answer: Yes.

SNK3R January 13 2007 3:43 PM EST

This is what Conundrum will look like when you win:

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 13 2007 3:48 PM EST

I'm overcome
*drool*

Underage Drinking January 13 2007 4:05 PM EST

drool is right.

deifeln January 13 2007 4:18 PM EST

If it were at all possible, I would have Conundrum's baby.

Halcyon January 14 2007 9:54 PM EST

I asked SNK3R if it was related to an ITEM in CB .. answer is no.

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] January 15 2007 4:04 AM EST

valiek, snk already told its not cb related

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] January 16 2007 6:53 AM EST

Anyone have suggestions for a new name for the char? I'll start the torrent off with Butter Monkey.Or maybe Cheesy Badness ?

th00p January 16 2007 6:20 PM EST

Naming the char would cost SNK 150k, and I doubt he would want to do that.

QBRanger January 16 2007 10:53 PM EST

Next hint:

Q:Can i let the public know I picked the phrase?
A: Yes.

TheHatchetman January 16 2007 10:56 PM EST

That wasn't a smart move Popsicle. Now something should be put in place to disqualify anyone asking Ranger for the answer...

TheHatchetman January 16 2007 10:57 PM EST

who the hell is Ranger, sorry PM

(0.0) January 18 2007 3:46 AM EST

wow novice won the prize it was Best friend

kevinLeong January 18 2007 3:53 AM EST

GG, Good job novice, calling seekers your "best friend."

What a lame way to win. J/K...

TheHatchetman January 18 2007 3:53 AM EST

Congratulations novice! Now, wasn't all the time, effort, and money spent on Bartlett worth it? :P

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 18 2007 3:54 AM EST

*trys to breath*

irony overwhelming me...PM picked phrase...context for win included seekers...brain melting...

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 18 2007 4:14 AM EST

SNK3R> ATTENTION! We have a winner! Congratulations, novic,
you found the secret phrase: "Best Friend". Please ChatMail SNK3R you should
be awarded Conundrum -- a 1,870,663 MPR character! Go ahead and boast, you deserve it! ;)



heh, I also got to find a bug in SNK3R's script, it stripped the e from my nick in parsing...

QBJohnnywas January 18 2007 4:40 AM EST

*smirks quietly and goes back to listening to The Who at full volume*

QBOddBird January 18 2007 7:04 AM EST

Haha, sweet! Congrats nov!

SNK3R January 18 2007 7:41 AM EST

Congratulations, Novice. Sent Conundrum on over.

(P.S., ever since I last booted up my script it kept cutting the last letter off of every user name, and I tried to fix it, but I didn't have enough time before the final release to figure out what was going on. In either case, it was still noticeable, so congratulations!)

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] January 18 2007 2:41 PM EST

Shakes fist " Arrrgg damn you novice and your little friends to! "
