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

a phrase can be one word. It's CB related, so not that many "phrases" anyway.
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.??
No, you have to talk in Carnage. "Do you know how to chat in room 'Carnage'?" ;)
January 5 2007 6:44 AM EST
nvm, its in chat, guess i should read a little closer.
January 5 2007 7:46 AM EST
when does it start
My program that listens for someone saying "the" magic phrase has started the second this thread has been made.

Just as well this is a "chat" contest and not one based on reading comprehension.
Nice contest SNK3R. One of my favourites :)
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 :)

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. :)

You're not leaving us are you SNK?
January 5 2007 12:02 PM EST
Grrr. I asked that too Mitt, he thinks he's so mysterious and won't answer me >.>
SNK3R never really leaves...
January 6 2007 8:31 PM EST
<Verifex> oh that contest is still on huh
This is your hint of "Nobody has won yet." :)
January 6 2007 10:45 PM EST
you type /join Carnage in the chat room.
=> SNK3R is it more than one word long
January 7 2007 2:56 PM EST
=> SNK3R Is it CB related?
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!

If no one wins by the time then end of free untraining occurs, can you unlearn everything?
January 7 2007 5:03 PM EST
if its not CB related how are we going to guess it
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.

Q: If no one wins by the time then end of free untraining occurs, can you unlearn everything?
January 8 2007 3:32 PM EST
=> SNK3R does it pertain to music?
January 8 2007 4:55 PM EST
what is this 20 questions... play the game already!
Here is the answer that I got:
=> SNK3R Is the phrase 3 words long?
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.
January 10 2007 10:47 PM EST
I asked SNK3R if the phrase was a cliche.
His response : No.
Hope this helps everyone. Goodluck. ^_^
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.)
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?
January 12 2007 7:14 PM EST
I asked SNK3R if the phrase was 2 words long.
His answer: Yes.
January 13 2007 3:43 PM EST
This is what Conundrum will look like when you win:
January 13 2007 4:18 PM EST
If it were at all possible, I would have Conundrum's baby.
January 14 2007 9:54 PM EST
I asked SNK3R if it was related to an ITEM in CB .. answer is no.
valiek, snk already told its not cb related
Anyone have suggestions for a new name for the char? I'll start the torrent off with Butter Monkey.Or maybe Cheesy Badness ?
January 16 2007 6:20 PM EST
Naming the char would cost SNK 150k, and I doubt he would want to do that.
January 16 2007 10:53 PM EST
Q:Can i let the public know I picked the phrase?
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...
January 16 2007 10:57 PM EST
who the hell is Ranger, sorry PM
January 18 2007 3:46 AM EST
wow novice won the prize it was Best friend
January 18 2007 3:53 AM EST
GG, Good job novice, calling seekers your "best friend."
What a lame way to win. J/K...
January 18 2007 3:53 AM EST
Congratulations novice! Now, wasn't all the time, effort, and money spent on Bartlett worth it? :P
*trys to breath*
irony overwhelming me...PM picked phrase...context for win included seekers...brain melting...
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...
January 18 2007 4:40 AM EST
*smirks quietly and goes back to listening to The Who at full volume*
January 18 2007 7:04 AM EST
Haha, sweet! Congrats nov!
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!)
Shakes fist " Arrrgg damn you novice and your little friends to! "
